Sad story with "Happy" ending...

by Jay Boggess December. 18, 2016 1825 views

A few months ago "Jake", one of my beloved grandpuppies passed away. 

"Bubba", his brother, is still with us....although he was so sad to have lost "Jake", his littermate & constant companion........from the womb......

After several months of mourning we decided "Bubba" needed a new buddy, so we went to a dog rescue group, to find a new companion for poor Bubba. 

"Bubba" mourning for his lost brother "Jake"....

May I introduce "Happy", the newest member of our family.....

Here's "Bubba" & "Happy" with my son, Joel & his wife, Pei ("Mom & Dad")

......starting anew...

"Happy" has a unique way of making everyone smile! Bubba does have a serious side when he is concerned or doesn't understand something, but mostly he is a carefree fun-lover!

Such an inspiring story! I too lost one of my furr babies a couple of weeks ago..I have two more cats who weren't that close to begin with but have adjusted well to the change and get along fine now. It's really difficult to lose them because they're just like family but it's good to know that you were able to find such a sweet looking buddy for Bubba...many happy memories to come for your and your family!

Thank You! The new addition, "Happy", has reinvigorated the whole household and especially "Bubba" who has been acting more like a puppy, instead of a 12-yr old "senior citizen". "Happy" has put a new spark of energy & enthusiasm in everyone!

What a story, starting so well with sad Bubba, then just what everyone needed, the aptly named Happy :-). Those freckles! Adorable. Everyone looks Happy!

Happy is cheering all of us of up, even though his history was not a pleasant one, being an orphan, in the animal shelter. I guess we are all lucky/blessed to have come together...

Thank You Lord!
