    DefaultBuddy is home

    We have gotten home and Buddy has inspected every inch of the house. He earned a couple of new nicknames between yesterday and the drive home - Fartblossom and Stinkbomb! :-X Hoo boy, this fella is gassy. I don't know if it's a) stress from leaving the foster, b) the Iams Large Breed dog food they had him on, or c) if it's just natural. I'm praying it's either a or b! :P

    For having lived most of his life in a shelter run or in a crate at the foster home, he is a very sweet-natured, lovable guy. Buddy was evidently mistreated at some point, because even a raised voice and "no!" will make him cower and lie down. We will certainly work on that. He likes toys but has no clue about fetching or even catching. He's another one who lets a treat boink him on the noggin! LOL I am hoping that in time, he will learn to catch and retrieve. Buddy was excellent on the ride home (except for the occasional noxious fumes that would permeate the van). When we first got him, he didn't want to get in the van, and then he'd try to bolt the minute you opened the door. Understandable, poor guy probably doesn't have many good feelings related to being transported. But, by the second potty stop on the drive back to Michigan today, he was hoppping in on command and waiting for me to grab the leash before getting out. His foster mom said he was very eager to please and should be easy to train, and I think she's right. Once he is secure in knowing this is his forever home, and we're not going to leave him or dump him, I'll find an obedience class to take him to.

    Oh yeah, I think he's related to Shanny ... he's a counter-surfer, and has already found the bathroom trash and shredded a used tissue. :-\

    This is Buddy last night in Louisville, see how stressed he is from leaving the foster home?


    Here's a shot of the white on his chest - Bill calls it a shooting star, since in trails down his belly:

    I am so excited for all of you. He's a lucky boy and, in time, will know that all too well.
