Letter to the editor: Buddy comes home
Our dog, "Buddy" got out of the backyard on June 18 and we didn't notice for a few hours. We looked all day and had a lot of tears going around our family. Buddy, a Black Labrador, is a sweet and loving dog who is definitely man's best friend. We got Buddy for my husband about three years ago when he found out that his kidneys were failing and he would be on dialysis. My husband, Curtis, has been on home dialysis for a year now and I must say Buddy is a big part of Curtis' fight every day for his life. Curtis manages to walk Buddy daily at Quarry Lakes and they have developed a relationship with the Park Rangers.
When Buddy was lost, Curtis went over to Quarry Lakes to let the Park Rangers know what happened. They told Curtis that they would be on the lookout for him. Well, the next day, at 11:30 a.m. we received a phone call from someone who lives three blocks from us. They were walking Buddy at the lake when the Park Rangers recognized Buddy. They asked the gentleman if he had found Buddy and if so, they knew his owners.
I can't thank the Park Rangers enough for helping us and keeping an eye out for Buddy. They are to be commended for their faithfulness to the City of Fremont and its residents.
