Meet Buddy. Buddy was a rescue in the care of All Dogs Matter, a rescue charity in London, England. Just a short distance away in Hertfordshire, an 18 year old young lady, Shayna, suffered a stroke. During Shayna’s long, arduous recovery to regain function down her right side, she became depressed. Her mother, Diane, decided she needed a dog to give her focus and something to be responsible for, a purpose to get well again. Enter Buddy.
“When we first got Buddy she had been neglected of love and attention and if you went to stroke her she would avoid touch and stare at her ball for you to throw. Over a long period of time and with a lot of patience she is now the dog… who interacts to please Shayna. They make a great pair, both helping each other.”
Di and Shayna visited Music City for their love of country music. They looked around for something fun to do and found the Back in the Day K. Di and Shayna connected with our event because of Buddy. The Back in the Day K is an organization that helps the Buddy's and Di's of this world connect and help one another. Be a part.
