Another Person's Treasure

Here's a photo of our latest foster dog. This puppy's owner says he wouldn't stay in the yard and was too much trouble, so he didn't want him anymore. I don't know who could look at this face and not fall in love with those chocolate eyes. So he came home with us today, and we call him Buck. Or as My Boy calls him, Buckaroo Bonzai. After a nice flea bath, a new collar and a trip to the vet for vaccinations, he says he feels like a new dog. My new buddy Buck's a lot of fun, though he's all clumsy puppy at the moment and tends to body slam when he moves too fast. Slick tile floors aren't his cup of tea, either, but he's learning might fast which way is up.


Hey, I'm a lot of trouble myself and I don't always sit/stay where I'm supposed to, but Mom and Dad wouldn't get rid of me, ever! Mom says being troublesome is part of my charm. So if The Family can love me, warts and all, they can take in a prodigal pup who needs adult supervision most of the time. This one might even stay permanently, since Dad is especially fond of English Pointers and had one when he was a kid.

And do you know what Dad's called his first birddog? Buck, of course!

As stupid as some people are in getting a pup then saying oh it's all too hard, he is better of with true doggie people...people who will love a dog no matter what. We are glad Buck is staying with you and might end up staying for good woo hoo!!

Hugs and tail wags

I bet he sticks around - he is one cute pup!! I'm glad you are taking good care of him. I hope he becomes a good buddy for you.

Your friend, Lenny

We hope Buck ends up staying with you furever, Tell! Some people just aren't true dog people, but you and your pawrents sure are! A dog doesn't need to live with someone who thinks it's too much trouble. That's half the fun of having a dog (or 3)! We hope he's very happy with you!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches
