Listen to the heartwarming tale of Buddy

A dog is known as a man’s best friend because of the way dogs are loyal and friendly to their masters. Just like every dog owner, children love dogs more than anything in the world. It’s not just about children, anyone with a pure heart simply can not deny that they love dogs, unless they are actually allergic to dogs. For the families that have dogs, they are not just pet animals, but true members of their family. Which is the reason it is my pet too.

It was around 10 o’clock in the night and it was raining cats and dogs in our street. Everyone was inside the comfort of their homes. I and my mom ran back to our house to save ourselves from getting drenched. I asked my mom to make me some hot onion pakodas. It is like heaven to have pakodas during heavy rains. Hot pakodas on cold and rainy days are the best part of my school days. The pakodas arrived and I and my father sat on the balcony having a good conversation while eating those delicious pakodas.

But there was meagre moaning somewhere near my house that we could barely hear. My father and I got worried. We thought something might be wrong and went outside to check upon it. And there he was, Buddy, my pet dog and my best friend in the whole world. He was abandoned by someone near the rainwater drainage pipe next to our house.

I could barely see a puppy as cute and innocent as Buddy, shivering and fully drenched in that cold rainy night. I felt bad for the dog and gave my pakodas and some bread to him. He ate it in a matter of just a few seconds. Then I and my father decided to take him home.

We gave him good food and a hot shower and washed him with my own towel. This was 2 years back. And ever since that lucky rainy night, Buddy is with us and he is our family now. When someone asks how many people are there in your family, I always say we are four of us, my mom, my dad, Buddy and me. As I am writing this essay, Buddy is enjoying a good game of ball with my dad in the lawn area.

There are many reasons why I love Buddy and one small essay on him will not be sufficient to express my love and affection for him. Nevertheless, I will try to write all the reasons why I love my pet dog. My dog is incredibly and unconditionally loyal to me. He loves me as much as I love him or sometimes more.

He is like the best teddy bear to cuddle with. We always play catch outside my house or sometimes in the park. He and I always sleep together on my bed and he wakes me up before anyone else in the house. He is the reason I am active and good at exercise. He will never let me be lazy.

Whenever possible, we always keep playing some or the other games with him. Whenever I fight with my parents on friends, Buddy will always be there with me to support me and shower unconditional love on me. He is the first person to be happy whenever I come back home from school. He will cuddle and lick all over my face and show me how much he missed me while I was gone.

Buddy is not just our family member, he is the most clever member of our family. He plays games with us. He keeps all our family members together with his love and cuddles. And he also keeps thieves and uninvited guests out of our home.

My pet dog is the best thing ever that has happened to me in my life.
