The title of this update is "The Adventures of Buck and Princess: Best Friends for life" (The Buck edition).
Bonded or not bonded; that is a big question. Many people involved in the recent adventures of Buck and Princess have observed that these two dogs are lifelong friends, and I very much concur! It is hard to come by a devoted friend to share one's life with, so RAGOM is trying very hard to find a great furever home for these two furry friends, together!
Currently, Buck and Princess 20-188 are spending time together in a boarding facility, as a foster home for both dogs together is not available right now. Buck and Princess have many visitors who enjoy spending time with them. They get a daily walk and are participating in Canine Academy classes for some one-on-one training time.
Buck is a sweet, big boy. He needs a little time to soak up all this newness in his world. He is a little hesitant and worries, but by taking time to observe, he becomes more comfortable choosing to join the humans and Princess in the new adventures.
Buck loves his humans and seeks out a little pet and scratch. He does fine near other dogs, but would prefer to not play. He would prefer to watch from the sidelines.
Buck recently had a bath, so he is very soft and fluffy. He had a follow-up vet visit, too. He is still having some ear issues and will have medicine for 10 days. It also was determined he should have a full dental. Next week, he will have his teeth cleaned, a bad tooth removed, and a much needed nail trim to put him in tip-top shape.
Speaking of shape, Buck is down to 87 pounds, which is much closer to where he should be! Now, it’s time to firm him up. He likes walks, so this will be fun to do, especially if it is near tall grasses for hunting and sniffing.
Today, our adventures (between raindrops) included a short car ride in which both dogs travelled very well, and they liked going in and out of the car. It also included being fitted in a harness, going on a nice walk, meeting new people, sniffing another dog, getting lots of loves, and watching the comings and goings of the boarding facility.
Enjoy some pictures and a short video!
