Meet Buddy!

Kevin and I have always wanted a playmate for Laila.  We were hindered by getting a second dog due to the strict 'one dog' rule at our condo in the city. Once we moved to the country we knew we could finally get our dog!  We waited until after the wedding & honeymoon so we could give our new dog the full attention he deserved.  It was a rough road trying to get a dog, but our new dog Buddy was well worth the wait.  Kevin and I volunteered to be a part of the rescue transport for the Minnesota Boxer Rescue and pick up our new boy!  It was one of the most rewarding experiences we have ever been a part of.  We helped transport 6 dogs to their new furever homes in Minnesota!

 I was passenger in the car and I kept glancing back at our new baby in the backseat!  I couldn't stop smiling, we finally got our dog!  He was so calm and he slept most of the 3 hour ride.   He was a perfect road dog!

Buddy is a 6 year old Boxer boy.  He loves looking out all the windows in our house, and he sleeps a lot.  He has the cutest snore when he's sleeping too!  His face is just one to swoon over, just adorable!  Buddy is a complete lover, and one of the sweetest dogs I have ever met.

He really enjoys the nightly bones we give him & Laila.  He has been spoiled with peanut butter too.  He's a bit on the thin side and his spine & ribs protrudes a bit, so I'm working on chunking him up.  He has some rough patches on his bony prominences - the vet says it's most likely due to laying on concrete for long periods of time.  How could anyone do that to him!?  We also found out he has arthritis in his hind legs.  I don't even care he has flaws, I love him just the same & will take the best care of him always!

Buddy is terrified of a kennel, I'm not 100% sure why, but it's worked out perfect with our lifestyle since I work from home.  He is such a good boy.  He lays by my feet while I sew and lays next to me on the couch when I'm working on the computer.  I always have one boxer dog on either side of me, it's heaven! 

Buddy & Laila are getting a long great!  He has the perfect speed to match Laila's calm nature.  They are getting used to each other and play a little bit every day.  It's really funny - Laila mocks everything he does, it's pretty cute!  He eats, she eats...he plays with a toy, she grabs a toy.

We've only had him for 9 days, but we love him SO much.  He is perfect to me!
