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?
While visiting Cousin Harry last week, Mr. Buddylee and family toured Mad Tom Orchards in East Dorset, Vermont. The mountain views were extraordinary and provided a perfect backdrop to enjoy an autumn day in Vermont. Mosey discovered that he liked snacking on more than one variety of apple and Buddylee didn’t mind relaxing in the tall grass, waiting for us to fill our bags with fresh fruit. Our “boys” were great, Harry was a wonderful host (as usual) and our 3 day adventure was a pleasure.
Mr. Buddylee and Mosey were walking on their usual Market Street route (minding everyone’s business as usual), and along came a small group of enthusiastic, Southern New Hampshire University, government studies, students. They were one of several student groups competing in a, 20 item, scavenger hunt. One member was holding a fresh cup of vanilla ice cream to be used as a puppy lure to obtain a cel phone image of a dog eating the frozen treat. The Happy Hound and Little Imp were happy to oblige. The students succeeded in getting one more item and the Boys were thrilled. After we gave out Mr. Buddylee’s calling cards and said our goodbyes, Buddylee and Mosey made the turn onto Bow Street to finish their walk. A surprise yell from across the street came from a second group of SNHU students asking to take a similar photo and they were also carrying a large bowl of vanilla ice cream. Lucky pups!
On Saturday afternoon, one hour before game time, Mr. Buddylee, Mosey with Dad get to hear the University of New Hampshire Band polish their tunes before they march to the stadium. Take a look at the Happy Hound and Little Imp as they actively listen to the band HERE.
Mr. Buddylee and Mosey get to stroll through a New Hampshire Seacoast tourist town weekly. After Labor Day they get to enjoy the less crowded streets. This coastal courtyard is on Ceres Street and home to a working fleet of tugboats that assist large commercial ships entering Portsmouth’s working port. This portrait of two relaxing pups without people, kids, strollers and other dogs showing up in the photo could never happen in the middle of the Summer. Buddylee and Mosey enjoy three seasons in Town.
Mr. Buddylee and Mosey, two pups on their own paths. I face this dilemma daily. The Boys and the model are in front of the North Church in downtown, Portsmouth, NH. The evening event is Fashion’s Night Out, celebrating fashion and style. Canine fashions should be the next event.
Mr. Buddylee and Mosey pose for their version of “American Gothic” as the sun sets on a Sunflower patch at Tendercrop Farm, Dover, New Hampshire. The Happy Hound and little Imp are so good as their mother shops for fresh produce inside. The Sunflowers are about to close up for the evening and the pups are about to get their picnic dinner.
Mr. Buddylee’s Blog is now filled with 4 years of fun images!
At the end of August on the Seacoast of New Hampshire, the dog days of Summer are with us for a few days. The Great Bay, between Dover and Newington, is a great place for a couple of pups to cool down during the hottest part of the afternoon. Mr. Buddylee could have stood there for hours and Mosey was off to being “busy”, climbing rocks and looking for crab shells. Every day is a dog day for the Happy Hound and Little Imp.
