By Popular Demand..

Buddy came out into the garden yesterday for a photoshoot! Not easy taking his photo, he moves, looks away, or looks just plain weird in most of the photos! He is 14 now, still fit and active. He has a stable, predictable life that is full of excitement and good nutrition. After all, he is teacher's pet! - This reminds me I have been meaning to mention that after years of study I am now on the verge of starting my own company.
I am about to qualify as a dog behaviourist, and I am calling my new company 'Blackdog' , named after my inspiration here! Initially I am providing DNA tests for mixed breed dogs, along with a behavioural profile to go with the results!
Dear Buddy has been my inspiration, I've never had a dog like him before.
The dog of a lifetime!

Best of luck for your new venture, dear Matron.
Being a dog behaviourist sounds exciting. People who are able to tow unconventional lines, stemming from their passions, are always the happiest lot.
Buddy is a rightful inspiration. He looks so handsome in those photograph. May he live a long and healthy life.

Best wishes on launching your own business!

Buddy is such a darling gentleman. The greying muzzle and eyebrows are very distinguished.

Great photos of Buddy. After his earlier problem he looks as though he has recovered well and still enjoying life to the full.

I wish you lots of success with your new business - I'm sure hands on knowledge will be very useful for so many dog owners.
And I'm sure Buddy is a huge asset to the company.

Hope you've been enjoying the weather in your garden - at last I feel that the veg plot is somewhat underway! Though in Suffolk there's a chilly Nor-easterly blowing in despite the sunshine!

He reminds me a lot of my dog when I see him in these pictures. I hope he will stick around for a few more wonderfull years.
