If I was granted one wish... I would wish my best friend would live forever...

Two years after my first Labrador (Blacky) died after having been my companion for 13 years we decided that ‘home’ was just not ‘home’ without a Labrador in it and so we went looking for our new companion.

In October 2006 we welcomed our new rascal in the house – a Golden Labrador – and obviously it was love on first sight – both for him and for us! As we were into diving at that time and already knew just how sweet and loyal a Labrador is we decided to call our new friend ‘Buddy’… and now, 7 years later, I know I couldn’t have picked a better name.

Although there have been quite some ‘surprises’ for us in the last 7 years – not all good ones – one thing remained unchanged: the unconditional friendship between Buddy and me! He has been there when others decided to leave and has thereby made sure that I came out stronger!

There is no way I can show just how great, funny, idiotic and sweet this rascal is but I hope that the pictures give you a good impression…
