Leaving her cherished companions, including her horse, Derby, and her dog, Buddy, caused Hannah profound sadness. Thus, when she came back for the Christmas holidays after being away for three months, her eagerness to reunite with Buddy was palpable – and the feeling was mutual.

Hannah had welcomed Buddy into her life as a puppy. Now advanced in age, Buddy struggles with arthritis and significant hearing loss. Nevertheless, these challenges do not hinder Buddy’s ability to offer Hannah a heartfelt reception. Upon recognizing Hannah, Buddy immediately presses her head into Hannah’s lap and begins to whine with emotion.
