Buddy was obtained from the RSPCA in Melbourne in 2000. He was 18 months of age and about to be put down. He was black and tan and very much a gentle giant. We fell in love at first sight.

He was born in 1998 and passed away 29/1/2010. We shared 10 wonderful years together in Melbourne. He leaves behind a best friend Buster, the Labrador and my husband Mil and I.

Here is a little eulogy for him:

Buddy – my guardian angel and my loving boy, your death leaves a massive void that will never be filled. Our hearts ache at your passing and we wish you a safe and happy journey to pet heaven, where your friends shall meet you. Till we meet again.
