 Buddy Hickman, beloved dog and member of our incredibly fortunate family, crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 05/24/22, surrounded by his loving mom and dad. 

Buddy came into our lives by extraordinary chance during July 2013, as he was transferred from Sara Sanctuary in Seguin, TX, to the former Animal Rescue League of Pittsburgh, PA.  We were in search of a child and cat friendly adult dog, and Buddy checked all those boxes, and brought immeasurable joy and happiness to our daily lives for the past nine years.  To know Buddy was to adore him, and he magically spread love and happiness to everyone he met.  He made us laugh each and every day we spent with him, as he loved silly antics and sharing his life with his favorite humans.  He truly cherished being a part of our family more than anything in the world, and was an incredibly affectionate, sweet little guy with the purest of souls.  He loved snuggling on the couch with his mom and dad the most, and curling up next to his pals, Jessica and Josh, during summer road trips in the car. 

 He was the best boy you’d ever be so fortunate to meet, and was always kind to everyone, even his cat friends at home.  He was there for all of us through thick and thin, and if he been able to, he would have stayed with us forever. 
 Some would say that we rescued Buddy when we brought him home nearly nine years ago, but we were truly the lucky ones.  In many ways, he rescued us from a life of never knowing the gift of deep, unconditional love that we shared with him each and every day. 
 Buddy leaves behind his human family, and his cat friends, Felix, Trixie and Gizmo, and many other wonderful pals he made over the years.  He will be greatly missed by all. 

 In memory of Buddy’s sweet, kind, and loving nature, please give your family (human, dog or otherwise), extra hugs and much love every day, he would appreciate it!
