Buddy is still entertaining us on a daily basis. We try and go for walks with him every day except when the weather is really lousy like yesterday and today. Those days we play indoors to try and get some of his puppy energy out so that we can have a quiet evening with him. One of his very favorite toys was absolutely free - hubby had long ago cut up an old bathrobe for car wash rags and still had the tie hanging around. Buddy quickly claimed it.
The next shot is not great as my good camera's battery was dead at the time but thrifty hubby has been playing outside with Buddy - a rope with knots tied in it with a plastic bottle on the end. Completely free and hours of joy. This is mostly used for running and jumping - although sometimes Buddy hog-ties himself.
These are the ducks that we see on our daily walk. They are not shy and always come right up to us thinking we have food. Buddy is an extremely quiet dog so no barking - he is of the opinion that if they leave him alone, he will leave them alone. He only barks at himself in the glass on the oven and washing machine and when we are playing with him.
This is Buddy holding down the couch last night while we were watching TV after a full day - "Put the damn camera away Mom". He had his final vet shots last week so now no more Vet activity until he gets fixed in summertime. He likes the Vet who is an extremely nice lady but by the end of his shots, wouldn't even eat her treats.
And finally, I am getting dog tags made up and we have made a decision which one to go with (*I apologize if I offend anyone but one of these is exactly what Buddy would say if he could talk). Which one do you think we picked? These are available on ETSY (just search dog tags) along with a lot of other neat ones in case anyone else is looking.

We are having a "rain" event right now with howling winds. My biggest challenge on days like these is convincing Buddy not to eat every earthworm and slug (yes, yuck) that he comes across when he goes out to do his business. Luckily he likes playing with his food before he eats it so I have mostly been successful. I am not so worried about the earthworms as they are a good source of protein (and kind of like potato chips when found dried lol) but the slugs are large and freaking disgusting. He licked one several times before I caught on to what he had.
