CBS darling Melissa Ordway – Gaston (Abby, The Young and the Restless) and her husband John (ex-Ben, Days of Our Lives) recently celebrated a significant milestone for a family member!

Early last December, the family lost their beloved dog, Buddy. He’d been with them for five years, but one terrifying day, he went missing.

Sadly, when the family finally found Buddy, he had died. It was a shocking tragedy and Ordway shared the heartbreaking news on social media.

A month later, the family found Teddy Baxter. The lovable companion appeared to be just the medicine they needed to cope and adjust to life after Buddy.

This week, Teddy Baxter celebrates his first birthday, and the actress posted a greeting for him on social media.

What do you think? Post a comment!

There’s no doubt; it’s been a rough year without Buddy, but Baxter has made all the difference in the world.

By the looks of their photo album, their “Goldendoodle” has fulfilled their lives in profound ways. Soap Hub wishes you a beautiful birthday Teddy Baxter. He’s going to become a “big brother” soon when Ordway welcomes her second child into the world.

May you have all the doggie bones and treats you can handle on this wonderful day! See the photos marking Baxter’s first year with the Ordway-Gaston family. Also, see her heartbreaking message about Buddy on the last page of the photo album.

The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for air times.
