Buddy …

All these years later, the antics of Buddy still makes us laugh. Buddy was one of the smartest dogs I’ve met.  Sort of freaky smart. And very very kind.



He was so smart that he trained us to toss the ball back to him when he would make it bounce down the stairs.  He was extremely accurate and fast about catching the tosses.



He also trained us to find him in the game of hide & seek. He would set the ball for us to find, then dash behind a tree and watch.



He introduced himself to the neighbors cow and they became friends.


He loved to swim. And he LOVED to jump off the diving board to fetch his frisbee.

In the shallow end, he would stand on his hind legs, and sometimes push the frisbee down under the water so he could make bubbles.
