Surf’s Up! for Mr. Buddylee. Our old boy was feeling his oats on St. Augustine Beach this past weekend. He was ready for body surfing, but we forgot his wetsuit. Mosey was intrigued by the shore birds, wading in the surf and looking for tasty crustaceans. Just South of the Happy Hound and Little Imp were body surfing humans plunging into the best waves all week. We all enjoyed the waves and Florida’s “white stuff” blanketing the sand. New Hampshire’s “white stuff” is another story.
Mr. Buddylee is enjoying his leisurely stroll through Rainbow Springs Park. Mosey constantly checks on the progress of his big brother. The Happy Hound is aging gracefully and happy not to need his toes freed of ice or snow chunks. The Little Imp has no idea what the white stuff is. HERE IS a recent photo of Buddylee and Mosey’s New Hampshire headquarters.
Mr. Buddylee and “brother” Mosey with the Little Imp’s siblings at a fun morning reunion at Mary Lou and JP’s dog park (backyard). It was great to see the Happy Hound tolerate a pack of Jack Russel Terriers and blend into the craziness.
The Brothers, BuddyMoseyLee, are enjoying a warm winter afternoon on the bank of the Withlacoochee River in Dunnellon, Florida(15 miles up river from their home). The gentle slope into the River, in Centennial Park, makes a great “dog launch”. Mr. Buddylee’s ears are perfect dip sticks for measuring the depth of this fresh water source.
It has been awhile between posts! During this multi week break Mr. Buddylee celebrated 13 years with us (or about 15 years old) and the Little Imp, Mosey became a one year old. Getting them in the same photo gets more difficult because these two opposites are a study in stubbornness. If you look below at the last post you can see why we didn’t mind keeping their photo at the top of the blog pile for several weeks. These photos were taken this morning next to the public boat ramp, 200 feet from Buddylee and Mosey’s house. Bored Boys!
Sharing the couch with Buddylee and Mosey during the evening news is a great way to, momentarily, take our minds off of the world’s problems. Spreading this image around the world may get us all to smile more? A great pair of pups!
Buddylee and Mosey are out in front of the Blue Gator restaurant in Dunnellon, Florida. The Boys are back at their Florida home a couple of towns west of this billboard. We met friends Bob and DeeDee for lunch and the Happy Hound and Little Imp were perfect pets, sitting by our table on the outside deck. Here is the duo.
Mr. Buddylee is spending the next day or 2 saying goodbye to all his New Hampshire friends. The Happy Hound and Little Imp (stage right, out of the frame) are packing their bags and heading to their, six month, Northern Florida home on the Withlacoochee River. Bud’s bud Bud lives a few blocks away in NH, and is on the morning walk route that the pups travel several times a week. The Boys have a good memory, so I’m sure they will remember all their Southern Buddies, especially the ones with biscuits in their pocket just like friend Buddy S. See you on this page in a couple of weeks.
Another Buddylee/Mosey downtown Portsmouth moment.
1. Two mothers want to snap a photo of kids between pumpkin giants.
2. Kids stand on wall ready for the perfectly posed shot.
3. Happy Hound and Little Imp walk by and grab kid’s attention.
4. Kids want to say hello before mothers capture image.
5. Portrait now includes pups, people and pumpkins.
Please notice that the Pups are perfectly posed and the kids are experiencing the moment, not saying cheese.
Mr. Buddylee and Mosey at the, newly constructed, rain garden diagonally across from their house. The plantings are all in, but yet to be installed are several benches and a small foot bridge to complete the project. In case you are wondering: a “Rain Garden” is a drainage ditch. What are your favorite euphemisms?
