My Buddy Butch is a humerous, touching true story of how a little rambunctious Boston terrier gives Jeff a new perspective on single parenthood, unconditional love, and learning to slow down in this hectic world we live in today. After Jeff’s mom passed away the family decided to get dad a little female Boston terrier puppy to keep him company. This was just what the doctor ordered and when Buttons had her first litter of pups, Jeff was not far behind from his own furry bundle of joy!
From eating the carpet to taking over an entire king sized bed, Butch went to great lengths to turn Jeff into a “New Dog Dad!”

Author's Note

This book is a work of nonfiction. It was written for the purpose of having a little fun, documenting an important part of my life, documenting much of Butch's new life, and hopefully transferring some of the knowledge that I have obtained while trying to do a good job of raising him. It contains opinions, reflections, and commentary on life, love, and learning to live with a new hairy little addition to my world, from a single person's perspective. All of the people, places, and stories in this book are real although some of the names were changed. The situations, however unbelievable, did happen. I hope you have as much fun reading this as I did writing it!



The passing of a loved one is devastating to us all, especially when it is unexpected. There is very little that can be consoling during the undefinable moments, days, and even weeks after the loss of a wife, mother, and grandmother. This is what my family was going through when Buttons arrived to help lift Dad's spirits and give him a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Taking care of that little pup was just the right medicine at just the right time. Pets for the elderly can do wonders to help curb loneliness and help to fill the void from the loss of a loved one. Admittedly, an animal could never take the place of another human (in most cases) but the responsibility of taking care of another little life awakens something in us as humans like nothing else can. This book is a commentary on how having a dog in your life, no matter what the situation, can help you realize some of the things you may be missing. Through the good and the bad times a dog that loves you will be by your side no matter what! Butch and I most definitely support the adoption of pets if at all possible and the training of pets to go visiting the elderly and children in assisted living facilities as well as those who are recovering in hospitals. Dogs are not only man's best friend but women's too!
