Buddy, the Dog of the Day
Name: Buddy
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male Breed: Beagle
Home: Cerritos, California, USA
   Buddy is always willing to give and not expect much in return. He loves and cares for me, offers protection when I need it. On cold nights he keeps me warm. When I am sad, he comforts me. For I have given him nothing that could ever match what he gives me. But Buddy does not only put a smile on my face, but for my whole family. One night at around 2 am someone broke into our house, Buddy quickly ran to our rescue and challenged the robber... he bared his teeth (which is very rare, 'cause he loves people and pets of all ages) and growled. But being so small, the robber only had to kick him in the stomach and he went flying across the room. Even with having damaged ribs, Buddy was not going to let the robber go. Once the robber turned his back on him, Buddy painfully got up and bit the robber as hard as he can in the back of his knee, which made him cry in great horror. The sound quickly woke us up and we where able to chase him out of the house before he was able to get anything or harm anyone. Buddy risked his life... for our happiness. But we are happy to say he is all right and our little hero. For he is and always will be very special to this family!
