I haven't posted pics for awhile ....so Melissa help!!!!

Our weather is so mild. It's wonderful and Buddy is loving it. There are so many squirrels and this is creating quite a distraction for both Buddy and Sadie in the backyard. I think the squirrels know and like to tease them on purpose. LOL

Mom go into the photobucket app on your phone and upload the pics from your phone... Then go on the iPad where you go to photobucket and copy/paste the IMG link into the thread!! I know you can do it!!

I wonder how he'll like swimming. With those webbed feet I'll bet he's a natural.

It will be fun to see how much Buddy likes the water. I wonder if he will like to launch off the dock at my folks place the way Echo used to do. (She was a wonder to watch) I have a feeling I'm going to have a hard time keeping Buddy out of the water, especially if there is a tennis ball involved.....ha

I'd bet my car a tennis ball will get him leaping off the dock once he's 'dipped his pads in the water', so to speak.

How about some new pics? You are a pro at it now

I still grin from ear to ear when I think about last year's "Christmas Miracle" of Buddy's adoption. Amazing answer to heartfelt prayers for Buddy as he laid the tennis ball on my legs over and over then crawled in my lap for a cuddle. I was so hoping I'd be able to find him THE dream home, and it happened!! God sure has come through with answers to prayers. Buddy's in dog heaven having the best life, and Andy's still doing really well too. Just wow.

HAPPY GOTCHA DAY BUDDY!!

Buddy is living the most incredible life with his wonderful mom, Laura. He goes to work with her, camping, has 'sleepovers' with his fur cousins ... just the best life a dog could ever live. I LOVE YOU BUDDY!! I'm so proud to be your Dogfather. You're the best boy!

I can remember this day like it was yesterday. Said a prayer the night of Andy's lymphoma diagnosis I'd be able to find a wonderful home for Buddy, and by the next day things were in motion. Thank you to Laura's daughter Melissa for reaching out. And to both of you for taking a leap of faith and driving 800 miles in a day to get your super cute new fur son. Buddy saw his first snow that day too when a blizzard rolled through Lima, OH, where we met halfway between Toronto and Nashville. Just in time for Christmas. It couldn't have worked out better!!

Pictures and story from that day: http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...ml#post5236577 (Andy's brother Buddy - New Canadian Citizen!! :))

Love at first sight!! I had Buddy dressed in a Santa hat, jingle bell scarf, and reindeer antlers. He ran to meet them like he'd known them all his young life. So cute!!

It's a day I'll never forget, and will remember with a gushing smile the rest of my life. And thanks to Laura for letting me be his Dogfather ... and for her friendship. What a wonderful person
