Your own dog is always the best dog ever. So it is with our wonderful dog Buddy. Buddy is a thirteen year old Chocolate Labrador. Buddy is not surprisingly an American, as opposed to an English, Labrador. He is a constant source of joy in our home. Sadly, we had to put down our other dog Emma last year. So we are considering getting a new dog pal for Buddy. The dogs we are considering in no particular order are:
Another Lab: Not much explanation needed here.
Pluses:Hilarious appearance. Cool snarfully noise they make. Jaunty gait.
Negatives: Breathing problems (hence noise noted above), don’t live very long.
Pluses: Very cool looking. Smart
Negatives: Not very cuddly.
What ever dog we get it will probably be a puppy and puppies are notorious chewers. Luckily Mary left a comment the other day about a Made in America chew toy GoughNuts that are allegedly close to indestructible. I will have a few waiting for our new puppy when he arrives!
