It is with heavy heart, we had to say goodbye today to our beloved friend and pet, Buddy. Buddy left us peacefully. He gave us very happy times that we wouldn’t trade for anything. He appreciated everyone of his fans and friends. Thank you all for helping Buddy live a great life. Buddy is in a better place now, chasing lizards, frogs & squirrels.
