Best buddies

Mom and I went for a long walk this morning and we went down streets we had never been down before which was soooooooo great because it meant smells I had never smelt before. Mom of coarse waited patiently at EVERY lamp post.......(I think she taps her foot like because it is so cold). She kept mumbling something about "how many lamp post must a small dog sniff before he's sniffed them all". It kind of sounds like that other quote I have heard - "how many roads must a dog walk down, before they call him a dog" Hmmm.... silly kind of quote really....I am always called a dog and there can NEVER be to many roads to walk down. Anyway, we walked and walked, checked out the golf coarse which is now all brown and desolate looking and then after a romp in the back field without my lead, we went to visit my buddy Franklin to wish him a happy New Year. Oh, Franklin isn't growling in this photo, that is just the way his jaw healed after it was broken. I think I mentioned before Franklin was a rescue dog and who ever had him before very badly mis-treated him. Now he is in his new forever home with a mom who loves him as much as my mom loves me and is is very very happy. The other great thing about visiting Franklin is that whenever I go there, Franklin's mom always has some treats for the both of us. And don't be fooled, even though Franklin's jaw is a bit lob-sided it doesn't stop him at all from chewing and in fact he puts me to shame and will chomp through a chew bone in half the time it takes me. In fact when he finishes his, he usually comes and sneaks mine away too, but that is okay....I don't mind at all cause he is my buddy and buddies share. The second photo shows us waiting for our treats......look how good we both stand there waiting. Well I am off to do some other things......have a happy new year everyone.

Reilly your buddy looks cool. Did you ever see my Cat brother Pepe afore we moved? He had a broken jaw too. I glad you had fun doing sniffings. I is starting to really like sniffings.

We're so glad that little Franklin loves his fur-ever home. His jaw doesn't look to bad to us. That's great that he is still nearby - now you can visit with him and get treats, yay!

Your walk sounded very cold Reilly! Katie wants to come inside when it's really cold. At least I think she does. Maybe it's just ME that wants to go back inside! Have a wonderful time with your buddy! He's cute!

Smell ya, later. Levi

Barky New Year Reilly. We think the answer to Mum's question "how many lamp post must a small dog sniff before he's sniffed them all." "The answer my friend is blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind."

Dog Speed,
