Three of the five members of this family are going to New Mexico...
Since the day I brought Buddy home from the shelter, he has demanded my attention and would rather have negative attention from me than none. When I have to correct him, he is the only one who doesn't get upset, as he still wants to lick and and gently hold my hand in his big, wet mouth. He is honestly a big, goofy galoot and his size alone gets him into trouble.
Buddy and I will spend our time "home alone" working on discipline with no distractions. Without realizing it, Buddy has enlisted in Doggie Boot Camp for the next several weeks.Hopefully this extra, one-on-one attention will have him better prepared for our next cross country RV trip to Oregon, scheduled for later this summer. Poor fellow has the body of a bear and the attention span of a gnat, but he is a sweetheart and wants to please, so I'm hopeful that we will make good progress.
It certainly will be quiet around here without the others. I think we all could use a break from the sound of our own voices. Now the only one who doesn't know the secret is Buddy. He'll figure it out soon enough.
