Buck doesn't do tricks. Once I tried to teach him to turn around in a circle, and he turned around and left the room.

Arrival Story:
Buck turned up at my cousin's back door in Albuquerque when he was only five weeks old. He spent his fist year in New Mexico, chasing jackrabbits, hanging out with coyotes, and being educated by a cat. Because of these early influences, Buck is much more refined and self-assured than your average dog. In his second year, Buck moved to California and became my grandparents' companion and guardian.

Bio:
When Buck first came to California, he was supposed to stay with my grandparents on a very temporary basis while I looked for dog-friendly housing. My grandmother was not happy about having a dog around, and insisted that Buck stay in the yard and the garage only. This arrangement did not last long. Buck has never had any formal education, but he is very intuitive, and he knew exactly what to do to get in my grandmother's good graces. Soon he was allowed to come into the house during the day, but he had to stay in the kitchen, and was sent back to the garage at night. Before long he had a toy basket in the living room and his own bed in the bedroom and a big box filled with all sorts of doggy treats. My grandmother had recently been diagnosed with cancer, and when she was feeling unwell Buck would sit quietly by her. She loved to play with Buck and tell stories about all the clever things he had done. It was clear that Buck had found his place in the world, and I had to accept that he would never be coming home with me. One night my grandmother had a bad fall and couldn't get up. My grandfather had already taken his hearing aid out and gone to bed, so he didn't hear her calls for help. My grandmother called Buck, and Buck went and woke my grandfather. Buck enriched my grandmother's last years more than words can say, and now that she is gone he is my grandfather's faithful companion.
