This evening while I was cleaning the kitchen after dinner, Walt took Buddy out for an evening walk. When I finished up in the kitchen, I went out on the front porch to enjoy the nice evening. Walt and Buddy had gone out in the back field. Walt said that when Buddy got almost back to the backdoor instead of going up on the steps, he headed for the corner of the house. Buddy NEVER comes around the front of the house without permission. NEVER!!!!!!! The first thing I see is Buddy hauling a$$ around the side of the house toward the porch. He runs up on the porch and is so excited to see me. The only thing we can figure out is that he could smell me on the front side of the house, when he came up from the field. There is NO WAY he could have seen me. He had to have smelled me. He knew his Mama was outside on the porch. I find this amazing that their noses are so good.
