Buddy's Beat

I am a very good helper

Mum said I channelled my angel sister Abby today. Apparently she was a great helper in the garden, well today I proved what a good helper I can be.

At one point mom looked up from digging potatoes to see me pulling a pumpkin vine in my mouth. She ran after me and rescued the 3 medium sized pumpkins that were still attached to the vine. She then told me I should not remove the pumpkins vines from the soil yet. Actually, all I heard was blah, blah, blah, but whatever.

So then I tried to help dig the potatoes. Apparently my big paws kept getting in the way and I guess you aren't supposed to run around with the dug up potatoes in your mouth. Who knew?

In other news, things are much less scary for me now. When I first got to my furever home, I didn't like stairs or going in the house. I am not sure if I had ever been in a house before, but at first everything here was scary. I now happily run up the stairs and over the threshold and into the house.

Brooms and mops were also scary. I just cowered whenever mom swept the floor and would whimper if she came too close with the broom. When daddy mentioned this on his Facebook page, one of mom's friends thought that maybe my former owner was a witch and that is why I was afraid of brooms. A few days ago, mom went to sweep the mud room and she closed the door to the rest of the house, so it was me, her and the dreaded broom in the same room. She slowly started sweeping and let me sniff it. I backed away at first but then got braver. She went on sweeping and stopping to let me sniff it, and I got braver. Finally I gave a good bark at it and then a play bow. Now I am not afraid of that broom!

I am doing much better with my bladder infection, and only have a few more days to take those pills. I go to the vet tomorrow for my next set of shots. Mom and dad think I have gained about 5 pounds since I came to live with them and I will let you know if mom needs to change the weight on my bio once we are back from my appointment.

Good job Buddy!
When I came to my furever home, Mom thinks I had never been in the house too. I got scared of a man's face on the TV thing. I didn't know how to come in the back door.
But I learned quickly and you are learning too!

Keep up the good work!

So glad to hear you are doing so well & the bladder infection is improving.

And what a good helper you are carrying the pumpkins and potatoes for your mom, our Angel Kiska used to dig up and help mom with her cucumbers and tomatoes. Us dogs are just naturally good when it comes to helping our humans, but sometimes I just don't think they appreciate it!:)
Glad to hear you & the broom are now friends.

So very happy for you!
Kisses, Rain & family

Buddy, it sounds like you're doing great. Your mom is so nice to be patient with you. (I don't like brooms either, but I try to bite them!:))

Neither of us like the broom either. Just looks scary.
Good to here how well you are adjusting to your new life. Hope you get a good report from the Dogtor.

Hey Buddy,

Sounds like you're settling in nicely.

Garden work is such a bother. If Mom doesn't want your help, just soak up the sunshine and watch her do all the work. That's what I do.
