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?
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.
