What’s in a name?
Bumblebeast was the nickname our kids gave our first rescue dog from Contra Costa Shelter. His name was Buddy. He was an owner surrender because they worked a lot, lived in an apartment, and he was a puppy.
Sadly, potential adopters thought Buddy was an older dog, so he didn’t get much attention. Buddy found himself on the euthanasia list.
We adopted Buddy and he came to live with us in our new home, with our 2-year-old Yorkie, Rocky and 2-year-old son, Chris. Soon Buddy became the Nanny dog to our new daughter Liz who came along the following year.
Buddy was an Airedale/Shepherd mix, who the kids started to call Bumblebeast as a special title. He lived until he was 17 years old. He was a much-loved dog and was found at Contra Costa Animal Services. He would be one of many to follow, but they all are our Bumblebeasts.
