I adopted “Buddy” as a senior companion pet 4 years ago from FVHA. He was 8 years old at the time. He and I are best buddies – – I saved his life and he saved mine. One night I went to sleep without my CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine, which I severely need any time I go to sleep. Buddy was forcefully pushing me with his nose and pinching at me with his teeth. I said “ouch! what is wrong with you!” That’s when I turned over and felt that I didnt have my CPAP on. After I got up and put it on, he was fine.
