I started the Buddy Project a little over a year ago as a personal project to document the special bond that kids have with their dogs. You can read more about the origin of the project in the first post here.
So Molly has been watching over Johnny since he was born. She’s a lot older now, but still keeps a watchful eye over him nine years later. In between naps that is. Molly is a sweet old Westie (West Highland White Terrier).
Johnny: outgoing, talkative, sweet
Molly: old, stubborn, quiet
At first I laughed at the “old” comment about Molly, because she may be 11 years old, but that’s not too ancient for a Westie. But she was kind of slow moving and most interested in napping.
I loved this: Johnny ran and grabbed his baby photo book because it had a picture of Molly watching over him when he was a newborn. And she just so happened to be sitting on the couch right above him just the same way when he was showing it to me. There were also a few surprise photo bombs from Gracie, Molly’s Chihuahua “sister”.
