Buddy’s been keeping pretty busy since our last update. Walking twice a day in the beautiful fall weather has been great. Buddy brings home an apple on each walk, so by the end of the week, we have quite the stash here. The trick is to “recycle” them without him catching you! It was time for Buddy’s annual heart check, so we went to the cardiologist so they could scan his heart and determine if it was holding steady or if either side had started to increase in size. The doctor said that both sides of his heart were holding steady and we didn’t need to change anything about our routine. Buddy’s good to go for another year. The following week it was time for him to go to the groomer. He enjoys the car ride there, but doesn’t especially care for the whole grooming experience. Buddy gives you the “I’ll tolerate this for you” look- but he expects lots of treats when we get home. What Buddy does enjoy is all the compliments he gets after – since he is so handsome and smells so good! Buddy’s been going visiting quite a bit and was more than happy to steal his favorite duck toy the last time he was at Grandmas house. See how proud he is in the latest picture.
