Buddy-Sitting

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Yesterday, we left you with a teaser… did you guess Buddy the Beagle?  Well, you see, on Tuesday, Mom, Miss Mary Ann, JJ, Dixie and I met up with Miss Cindy and Buddy.  Miss Cindy asked the ladies if they knew of a good kennel, because their K9 sitter was away.  Mom chirped right in, “I K9 sit.”  Miss Cindy and Mom made a quick arrangement.  Mom visited Buddy’s house to make sure she knew all of Buddy’s preferences and stuff.

Before I continue, we have another teaser… we have been working on something with two anipals, can you guess who?  Ok, back to Buddy!

Remember, Mom’s familiar with retrievers, the Beagle heritage is quite new to her.  The following Beagle/Buddy behaviors have stood out so far:

  • Buddy loves to snuggle if Mom sits on the floor with him.
  • Unlike JJ and me, Buddy does NOT inhale his food.  He politely visits with Mom and then after about 10 minutes civilly eats his kibble.
  • Whereas JJ and I slurp water as if we spent the last three days traipsing (VBP – vocab builder project) across the Sahara, Buddy takes a few swigs and moves on.
  • Buddy only requires a lightweight leash, unlike our secure, heavy duty, yet fashionable varieties.
  • See lizard/gecko – will chase, catch and deliver!  Ewwwww!
  • NEVER stops moving… the dude needs to chillax a little! Mom cannot capture his face clearly to show you.
  • Mom says his tail moves like a metronome when they walk.
  • He makes a funny grunting noise… at first, Mom thought he was choking, then she thought he was wheezing, then she realized he was happy.
  • Of course, the beagle bay differs from our retriever barking!

Mom felt so sad looking at Buddy’s face on both night one and night two, so she brought him home for a sleepover!  We all blended well.  Buddy zipped through the house investigating everything.  Mom did not think he could jump up on the bed.  W-R-O-N-G!  He looked like he had springs attached to his paws like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh!  Finally, drained of energy, Mom, JJ, and Buddy fell asleep on her bed while I monitored the bedroom from a few different vantage (VBP) points.

Another great Buddy, day.

  1. Now you have a friend named Buddy just like we do. Dogs that live alone normally eat slower because they have no pack to steal their food.. Sounds like a fun time – Beagles are hounds, so maybe he is a bit loud too???

    • Hey Emma, Jet here.

      Really? You have a Buddy buddy, too? BOL! Ahhh, another wise observation, Emma. No, so far, Buddy isn’t terribly loud, especially compared to JJ’s husky bark and my manly man bark. 🙂

  2. Buddy sounds like a true hound! We don’t make the same noises as him, and we aren’t constantly in motion, but a lot of the rest sounds like Blue and me. I hope you have a great time with Buddy!

    • Hey Amber (Max, and the new additions!), Jet here.

      My suggestion… have your human place steps or a ramp, because beds are THE BEST! When I first joined Mom’s family, my legs had atrophied and I could not jump on the bed either. Mom had the biggest smiley face the first time I arrived next to her. 🙂

  3. Buddy sounds like he’s a lot of fun to have around!! When we got Charlie our Wheaten, I had never had another kind of dog other than a Golden and had no idea breeds of dogs could be so different from one another, then I got the Scottie, talk about planets apart from the Goldens (in fact, the first article I read on Scotties was titled Scottie’s are not Goldens!) but those differences is what makes it all so much fun, doesn’t it, just like with people! 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

    • Hi Golden Pines Gang, Jet here. Hi Miss Kim.

      Mom asked me to share that indeed, diversity makes life interesting. 🙂 She said that even though we think I’m part Flat Coat, my Border Collie part has fascinated her and taught her so much. 🙂

    • Hey Savvy, Jetty here.

      Thought you might luv the little dude!

      Boy our Mom’s had a BIG chat today… I’ll never understand what ladies can speak of for soooo long… I had to take a nap. 🙂

      • oh yeah Jetty, me too…I was napping REALLY HARD on Mom’s side of our bed…I’m sending your Mom an extra bunch of my bestest paw hugs ‘cuz my Mom said she could use them…

      • Hey Savvy, Jetty here. Hi Miss Linda.

        Oh Savvy, you are my BFF (we tell all our blogpals, too!) Thanks so much, Mom loved the hugs and so appreciated your Mom’s conversation. 🙂

  4. Oh! That’s who your buddy is! He’s lucky to be hanging with you guys!

    “Unlike JJ and me, Buddy does NOT inhale his food. He politely visits with Mom and then after about 10 minutes civilly eats his kibble.”

    Well, that gives you 10 minutes to get an extra snack!

    • Hey Princess Gracie, Gentleman Jetty here.

      Oh, what a fine idea… 10 minutes for extra snacks… you are so smart!

      We enjoyed him, too… 🙂 Although… he took one of our chats a little too seriously. Check out Mischief Monday’s post, which is already up!

  6. Ut oh, see I should have scrolled down first instead of starting at the top! Yay, I’m so glad that mom realized Mr. Buddy was sad and she brought him home. I hope you all are having fun!

    • Hey Sampson, Hey Delilah, Jet here. Hi Miss Jodi.

      We didn’t read your other comment yet…

      He spent the whole day with us today… (let’s just say we’re out of paper towels and spray!) He really prefers company. Wait til you hear what Mom found this morning!

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Sankissjuice.

      If you search for winchester, you will find posts on the arrogant bird! He is handsome, however, sheesh, he’s so unfriendly!

      We get along well with Buddy, he spent the whole day with us today! (more on why next week!)
