Mr. Buddylee and Mosey Outside Blue Gator

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey outside Blue GatorBuddylee 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 and Mosey in the New Rain Garden

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey in the Rain GardenMr. 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?

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey: Right Place, Right Time!

mr-buddylee-mosey-icecream-scavengarMr. 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!

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey With The Tugs In Portsmouth

Mosey and Mr. Buddylee With The Tugs In PortsmouthMr. 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: A Bright Golden Haze on the Meadow

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey in Sunflower PatchMr. 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!

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey: Always Dog Day Afternoons.

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey, a dog day afternoonAt 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.

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey: Ultimate Potty Training

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey: Real Potty TrainingMr. Buddylee and Mosey were in downtown Exeter, New Hampshire, the home to Phillips Exeter Academy, and lots of fun dog walking with our 2 handsome pups. I always have bags at the ready, but sometimes get embarrassed when loads are deposited around city trees. This photo depicts my ultimate goal(dream) and was taken behind the Exeter Town Hall.

Mr. Buddylee is Patient, Patient, Patient.

Mr. Buddylee and Mosey Waiting for TicketsSaturday morning 10AM sharp, Mr. Buddylee and Mosey were standing (sitting) in line at the Portsmouth Music Hall to reserve tickets to see, the band, Pink Martini. The Boys were patient, well-behaved and quiet during the 25 minute wait. As luck would have it, the dog seats were already sold out (got good human seats). The reason for the perfect behavior: we had just come from a 50 minute walk/run in the dog park. Mosey was sprinting around like a wild man, with all his playmates, while Buddylee strolled on all the paths with his mother. I am finding the key to a well-behaved Jack Russell Terrier is to keep him tired.
