Over the past few years, I have been telling you about so many of our wonderful furry friends. It has been brought to my attention that I haven’t told you about my two boys, Buddy and Bugz. Both are rescue dogs…and I really think that they rescued me rather than me rescuing them. They bring so much love to Jimmy and me and make coming home each day special. 

Buddy was found wandering in Visalia five years ago and was slated for death since their animal shelters are so overcrowded. Luckily, the local rescue chose Buddy, and he was brought to PetSmart to be adopted. Looking at his sweet little face, I couldn’t walk away. Buddy was named Bobo by the Rescue staff, but he really seemed like a buddy, hence his name.

Three years ago, Bugz was rescued from Woods Humane Society by two of my neighbors, one of whom, unfortunately, passed on shortly after that time. The other, after seeing how attached Buddy and his Bugz became as we walked past his house each day, generously allowed us to adopt Bugz. 

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love dogs…especially my boys. They are friendly, energetic, excitable, and bring us so much joy…not to mention photogenic…yes, I am a proud pet mom, in case you haven’t noticed.



Please send me your pictures and a short paragraph about your pet to avilabeachcc@gmail.com. 

Thanks, and introduce us to your furry friend next month!
