This is me and Bud on 10 September, the day after we got him…
this is also why I don’t put many photos on, B is not very good with the camera. I never look like me, I AM a 5′ 8″ leggy blonde and yet in B’s pics I always look like a 5′ 1″ non leggy brunette, well brunette-ish I guess in that one!
And after slightly more than two months and…
3 walking harnesses
1 chewed door frame
3 poops in the house
3 puddles inside
1 vicious leap at Ben (my Auntie Ann’s dog)
numerous soft doggy toys
lots of chewing toys
1 wee in the garage – not 2′ from where I was sitting
chasing two pheasants across a field
several instances of vomiting (by Bud – just one by me)
an hysterical moment when I painted the bathroom ceiling when he got a piece of masking tape stuck on his paw
about 1,000 poop scoops (hence Bud’s nickname Buddy Two Poos because why do one when you can do two 100 years apart and thank goodness for frosty mornings in the garden! – If you don’t own a dog and need an explanation let me know – let’s just say I’m not looking forward to warmer weather)
an encounter with an Akita that confirmed that although my organisation skills are a bit shot I can still remain calm under pressure – stick hand out, grab harness extract Bud from Akita’s grip – I think it wanted to play but then again it was lunch time!
a little toy box for Bud – because there is no way I am going to end up in A&E explaining that I fractured the lytic lesion in my right femur by tripping over a blue goose on the landing in the dark!
several stones in the pads of his paws
one somersault onto his back on the lounge laminate flooring which he walked off but which nearly gave me and B a heart attack
one twisting somersault somersault on the kitchen lino for which he got 10.0 as he landing back on his feet, I mean paws
two grazes on his back legs from skidding to retrieve his ball
a boo boo that required a trip to the vet’s…
this is me and Bud on 17 November…
And strangely I have MORE hair!
