This is the third time I’m writing this blog because WordPress is acting crazy. So now that I’m sufficiently annoyed, this is Buddy in his lion costume. And yes, that’s all you’re getting because I don’t feel like writing the whole thing again.

Someone’s hair has gotten a little crazy lately. I made him a grooming appointment three weeks ago and the soonest I could get was Sunday. They also had Thursday but that didn’t work because it was in the morning. It seems like since I made the appointment, his hair has massively grown in every direction. Since it’s summer, we’re going to get it cut shorter than we would normally would so he’ll be more comfortable in the heat. I hate dropping him off at places like the groomer’s though. Although last time he made friends with the other dogs and possibly a lady friend in the form of a little Westie, so he probably actually enjoys his haircuts.

Buddy had a long day. This morning, a refridgerator magnet kept falling off the fridge, and since Buddy shares my feelings about the closet Wookie, he growled at it for hours. Then, he had a vet visit this afternoon. Unlike some dogs, Buddy actually likes the vet. He whines at the door until they finally let him in the back for his appointment. Today, he had to get two shots and some routine blood work. We also received some advice on a recent behavior issue. Lately, Buddy doesn’t want to go outside. He’ll go, very reluctantly when you make him, but otherwise he’ll plant his feet and just look at you. He hasn’t always been this way; he actually likes going outside. The vet said something must have scared him so we’ll have to turn going outside back into something fun either through treats, toys or petting. Hopefully that’ll fix the problem and he’ll be back to loving outside.

Buddy had his first trip downtown today and he loved it. He sniffed around, tried to play with all the other dogs and explored everything. I think we’ll definitely have to take him back.

I don’t know why Buddy lays under the couch. I think he actually fell asleep under there yesterday. He has two beds and he can lay on the couch, but he often chooses to hang out under it. Go figure.

Don’t worry he’s not foaming at the mouth. The fuzz from his toys gets stuck in his hair. He has a little animal collection now. If you leave them in the crate in the morning he’ll go in and rescue them one by one. I guess he never leaves a soldier behind.
