Nicknames: Bud, Bud Lite, Nutty-Buddy, Buddy-Boy, The Budster, Mr. Buddinski, Puppyhead, Ping-Pong, Leapin' Lizard, etc.
Birthday: June 30th 2006
Likes: Being the center of attention, much to the dismay of his older sister!
Pet-Peeves: Buddy hates water (except for drinking), hates fireworks and thunder, hates being picked up and hates having his nails trimmed. I could go on, but I won't.
Favorite Toy: Anything his sister is playing with, socks, shoes, electrical cords (including iPod chargers) and moths.
Favorite Food: Whatever is in his bowl, in Lexie's bowl, dropped on the floor, under the rabbit hutch, or in the garbage!
Favorite Walk: Anywhere and everywhere.
Best Tricks: Standing on hind legs for extended periods of time and butting in wherever Lexie is getting attention.
Arrival Story: Was watching the local Humane Society website for nearly two years, on the lookout for another mini schnauzer. He showed up on a Saturday morning and I literally ran out to see him. He was surrendered by another family and came up here via Chicago.
Bio: He was just over a year old when we got him and very thin. He would stumble going down the stairs and the vet said it was because of his low weight. Otherwise, he had a clean bill of health. He is probably purebred, but like his older sister (also a rescue) we just don't know, or care.
Intro: I love to play and be in the thick of things. At first I demurred to my older sister, Lexie, but those days are gone. I now jump in on any and every petting session I can get, much to Lexie's dismay. I just can't help myself - I have to be included in everything and will not often sit still, even to let Mom attach my leash for walks or pour food into my bowl. I am very energetic and act like a puppy more than an adult.
I can't belief mom left her puter on wifout bein in the house. I don even member how to do this stuff on here, but I am gonna try my best. Or at least try. It is hard.
How in the world has everypup been? I have been very good. I got lots of treats today. Mom snipped my claw thingies off, one by one. Every time I heard that bad "click" an' saw my paw part go shootin' off 'cross the room, I got a treat. That is a lot of treats. It is the same number as the number of my toes, I think. Mom did this to Lexie too, but she only got one treat for every whole paw cuz she don know how to complain like I do. I have smart.
Mom's been barking a lot lately, which fur a human is not a good thing. She sounds rather rattley and gurgly and has been using up a lot of tissues, which is really cool, specially if I could get my paws on them - yummy, gummy treats! She puts the trash cans up really high now though. Sigh.
She is also taking extra naps, which I don't mind in the least. Actually, I don't think this is normal and good behavior for a human. I hope she don hafta go to the vet. If she does, at least maybe she can get some pills and take them with peanut butter. That wouldn't be all bad. I could even help wif that part. I'm good like that.
