Ode to Steven Bud A. Dog (a.k.a. Budly Von Studly)


“Bud was the most consistently joyful being I’ve ever known. He was always happy that the day was beginning; he was always loving and affectionate; and he was always ready for any adventure. He would chase sticks and balls until the human throwing them was exhausted, and then he would bark for more. He diligently watched the skies to keep his home and family safe from predator birds, and he would see the specks in the sky long before the rest of us could. The delight he infused into our family was irreplaceable, and I know that he continues to pour forth his love into all of our lives.”
