Meet my pal, nutty Buddy!

This is my new pal Buddy. He's a big old goofball puppy, about a year old. He's part black lab and (Mommy thinks) part pit bull. He's really sweet and loves to chase the ball as much as I do. 

He also can lie down absolutely flat. Like a pancake. I can do a froggy position, but not as flat as this!

He sometimes mows me down when we're both going for the tennis ball, so I decided to look along the marsh where I thought we lost one the other day...

Look at the nice view from Buddy's back yard! The tide was almost all the way in.

Hmmm, maybe we dropped the ball out here in the marsh? Whaddya mean you don't want me to dive headfirst into the fluff mud, Mommy?

Buddy cools off his belly in the grass while I go on the ball search.

Mommy took some great videos, but we couldn't get them to load. Maybe tomorrow. Now look at silly Buddy—that's no way to hold onto a tennis ball. He's a lot of fun, when he's not clobbering me!

I went down to the beach again this morning and my new friend Brownie - a Yorkie/Chihuahua mix - came tearing down the beach to play with me. He likes to chase the dog that's chasing the ball. And a few minutes later, we were joined by a white terrier/Maltese mix named Casper. We three fellas had a grand time, getting every kid on the beach to throw the ball for us. Maybe we'll get some photos of them later this week!

Buddy looks like a lot of fun - Paddy likes to play with a Bull Terrier in the park but gets mowed down too - I prefer to sit and watch and take treats from owners!

Your beach sounds lovely - we wish we could be there!

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Hi dearest nephew - Buddy looks cool - a bit like a younger version of Marvin!
Not that we are saying Marvin is old!
Oh dear we just meant he looked like a puppy Marvin so bound to be nice.
Glad you have met a pal - look forward to the videos although they can be a pain to load.
love and kisses

Hi Petey
Thanks for introducing us to Buddy - so nice to have pals.
But Petey, you missed a trick there. Marsh mud is just the best. So black and so smelly. Take it from me, I live in Scotland so I'm an expert in bogs, swamps, fens marshes etc. etc.
Cheers, H.

A sturdy little guy like you should be able to stand up to a labradork. They can be annoying.

Hey Petey! I'm wagging you have a new Buddy buddy. And get this - I made a new buddy called Buddy this week too!! But he's a puppy Sheltie. I sort of mowed him down in my excitement. Your Buddy's doing that downward dog position perfectly. Wonder how he gets up from that?

Wiry wags n kisses Eric xx

What a nice friend to have, Petey (esp. one with his own body of water! I'd be in there in a NY minute!). He is very cute.
Your pal,

Buddy's a real cutie, Petey, along with being lots of fun. And that flat trick he does is great. I bet that he will have a lot of girl friends someday. Don't introduce him to Lacie. hehehehe...

Hi Petey - can't wait to see your videos!

I'm obsessed with tennis balls too! And hey - I would LOVE to see a photo of you with a "slobbery" tennis ball for my contest! :-)

Your buddy sure lies in a weird way...!
