A Dog's Life

"Must be nice to be Bud E.!"
I often say this as he basks in the sun on the deck
or lays in the grass, chewing a bone
snuggles up in "his" living room chair
hunts around the wooded hill of the back yard where he has free reign.

Bud E. is our 8 year old lab.
He's a good guy.

He likes to keep me company.
He follows me throughout the house,
upstairs, downstairs, into my art room or into the kitchen-hoping for a little treat.
He especially loves to watch me grill-just in case there's something extra.
Sometimes I feel bad when I'm running from room,
he follows me until I finally stop and then he lays down near me for a nap.

When everyone's home he wants to be in the middle of everything!
Of course, he's one of the family!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Your sidekick is!lovely and he clearly likes you! I'm glad he doesn't nibble on your jewelry supplies.

Oh Bud E. is a handsome boy! He clearly is loved and adored as well he should be! I, too, have a dog that follows me everywhere and I always think she must be exhausted!

Thanks so much for joining in this week!

As much as my current dogs might not to hear this: I LOVE LABS. I grew up with one, my sister had one, and we had one-- just lost him this January. They are the best! Thanks so much for posting your guy!

Hi Poppi! It's been quite ahwile since I've visited. I love Bud E. What a befitting name because he's simply adorable and he's clearly your buddy. I have 2 dogs and my little girl follows me everywhere. I'm behind on my reading so I'm going to stop writing and catch-up with your blog.

He is so precious! We have a Buddy, a 15 year old Silky Terrier. He does the same thing...follows me everywhere and always under my feet, but we love him. Thanks for sharing Bud E. with us.

He's a doll and obviously so happy. He sounds exactly like my Bentley who is just a smaller little guy. I am your newest follower. Stop by for a visit and meet Bentley.
