I'm a Big Boy Now !!

A few contacts asked if I would post a photo of “Buddy”. He is almost five months now, and closing in on forty pounds. He is a very well behaved dog, even for a pup. He rings the bell on the door when he has to go outside, sits and lays down on command, and is becoming a very good walker. He never barks, and does not leave the yard. If someone is walking by, he will sit at the end of the driveway with the “So, are you going to come over here, and pet me?” look on his face.


My girlfriend gets all of the credit for this. While I was in South Africa, she was working hard with Buddy.


I know this is not the greatest backdrop for a photo, but it was going to downpour any minute, and we were trying to get a few quick shots before the rain came…..that did not quite work out…. We got soaked.


That is a new addition going on a school in the background. They have been detonating explosives all week to break up the bedrock for a new foundation. To say it is scary when they blast may be an understatement, the sound of the blast makes me and Buddy jump, followed by the concussion of the blast a second later. This has been on going for the last three days, with four blasts on average per day. I really do not think I am going to miss this when they are finished.
