We love getting updates from our puppy families:
Your kids are growing up , I’ve gotten older, and my Buddy (Willow’s brother) is what six and a half now? I’d have to check, but he is an old man I guess. I just had to share this pic with you. Age has only mellowed Buddy, if that was possible. We are now on our eight grandchild, and she is a fierce warrior of a kid at ten months old. I watch her full time M-F and her first word is dog. She is obsessed with Bud. She uses him as a climbing post , grabs his beard, stands with him, pokes at him, pinches him, loves on him, and follows him all over the house. He is clearly annoyed sometimes, but just walks away. Mostly though, he stands patiently and let’s her do what she needs to do = does not leave while she is standing or holding on to him, will not let her fall.
He is the kindest sweetest, healthiest, most loving dog of all time. Yesterday, with the baby in a stroller and bud on a leash, we were out walking. We came across a frantic woman and her two daughters who were out trying to find a runaway jack russell terrier (who was crazy). We kept seeing the terrier race across the street and run like he was insane. He came running over to where we were, I calmly took bud off his leash (because he is completely off leash trained) and he stood patiently greeting this strange and crazy dog so that his owner could come and capture him. He gave me this look like, “kids these days”. We proudly and calmly walked back home.
I hope you are well and thriving in your northern home. Thanks again for my amazing dog.
