Buong has been my companion for nearly 2.5 years now. (Buong means “stubborn” in Vietnamese, but sometimes I refer to him as “Buongy” or “Buongster” or “Buongomatic”). He’s always been there for me and now, since I’ve had my suitcases out around the room, he’s been acting differently. He seems to be more affectionate now, like sleeping with his head on my arm when I’m lying in bed. I’m gonna miss this little guy so much. He is always there for me when I get home from work, every day.
