I had my vet appointment today and once again I wowed everyone in the clinic. They love me so much they asked me to join puppy club next week! I weighed in at 46.6 pounds and got my booster and dewormed again.
On the way back from the vet appointment I got a little bored and chewed through my seatbelt. Hey, I hated that thing anyway, but I think mom will be finding me a new one.
I got several comments on how shiny my coat is becoming and for some reason the fur on my head and ears is starting to turn a dark brown.
I will woof at everybody after my first puppy club meeting!

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.

Mum took me to the vet yesterday and I charmed everyone at the clinic!
This is only the second time in my whole life I have been to the vet. The first time was August 28, when my foster mom took me. At that appointment I got some vaccinations and deworming, a clean bill of health and lost my testicles! I was not looking forward to this trip.
I guess I have a bladder infection and will be on antibiotics for two weeks. Mom is wrapping them in something called cheese, so they are very tasty and I am taking them well.
I was also violated at this appointment. Not only did I have my temperature taken (and you all know how they do that), but because I didn't pee (and they even gave me two big bowls of water which I eagerly drank), they used a catheter to get the urine sample. I paid them back later, by peeing all over the reception area floor!
I seem to be doing much better today and mom just took me on a drive to the dump to get rid of all the garbage. We then went into town to get some diesel for the tractor.
Hope everyone else is having a great day.

My name is Buddy and I just came to my furever home on August 31, 2012.
I was rescued from a community in the northern part of my province on August 13, 2012. I was then taken to a rescue outside of Saskatoon, Sask. At the rescue, I started receiving my vaccinations and deworming and was getting lots of good food to eat.
On the evening of August 17, 2012 a couple came out to the rescue to meet another pup. That pup didn't really suit them, and I knew I had to make my presence felt. My foster momma was in the back yard with this couple (I will now call them mom and dad) when her husband came home. Mum and dad were about to leave because that one dog didn't seem to fit what they were looking for.
As my foster dad was coming through the garage, I knew I had to make my move and started forcing my way out the garage door. My foster mom first said, "we don't need any more dogs out here" and then said "that dog is gonna be a monster". My foster dad was using all his strength to try and push me back in the garage and close the door! Mom then asked if she could see me! I came charging out of the garage and the rest is history.
I had a bit of a hard start to life, but thankfully I lived two doors down from the president of Northern Animal Rescue (NAR) and she was keeping an eye on me. She eventually persuaded my owners to relinquish me to the rescue.
I had no vaccinations and didn't have adequate food for the first part of my life. I was also chained outside without shelter day and night. I would like to thank the president of NAR for keeping an eye on me!
It is believed I am 4.5 months old and weigh 40 pounds, but everyone says I am underweight.
That is my story so far and thank you for reading it and nice of you to stop by! Maybe we can be pals?!?!?
