Buster walks regularly with Missie and he is very respectful of her and they both walk along happily together. Yesterday they drank together out of the same water bowl but Buster doesn't share Missie's enthusiasm for bathing preferring a tentative paddle rather than full immersion.

Oh Buster, how cute you are? Like Dodger's twin, one of my favourite foster boys. So keen and forward-going, he would love Canicross. He's desperate to play and interact with other dogs, being the baby that he is.
We went to look at the bluebells, but he wasn't very impressed..the sights and smells all around were much more interesting.

Well well Buster what a fantastic dog you are! Buster walked beautifully with Loki, they seemed very content in each other’s company. Buster loves to play (including puppy bouncing with Loki which was lovely to see), paddle and be fussed. He’s an all round lovely dog who is just waiting for his new family. :goodluck.gif:

Happy Boy
It was my first walk with Buster on Saturday, he`s such a wee cutie, very young and puppy like, life is for exploring and enjoying and that's what Buster is going to do! Just a lovely young boy who would like an active and loving family of his own please. :crossfingers.gif:

Buster is another gorgeous boy, I had such a good walk with him today. he was great to harness and get out, no problems at all. It was very sunny at first and we had an amble and a bit of a paddle and then when we found some shade we ran a bit and walked a bit. He would be a great dog for a family that wanted to get into canicrossing as I found him calm and he runs nicely in a straight line..very handsome too love4.gif we didn’t meet any dogs close up but a few further away and he showed no interest and was very chilled.

On our walk today Buster did give me a little scare, he picked up a stick which I wasn`t expecting (I never encourage sticks as I know from experience with our old first dog the damage they can do) and before I could get it off him or discourage him from chewing it he had snapped it in half and then half again and then started retching and sort of choking.
I knew exactly what had happened - the bit of stick that was left had got wedged across the roof of his mouth, oh dear poor Buster - he was desperately trying to get it out but it was stuck firm, I had to quickly put my fingers in his mouth and pull it out, luckily as soon as I felt it I managed to get it out easily.
Just want to say I had no hesitation putting my hand in Busters mouth, I knew he wouldn`t bite, there is no edge to this young boy, he just seemed to know I was trying to help him. Good boy Buster and I made sure he didn`t pick up any more sticks on the way back! thumbs.gif

Karen and Gary drove a long way in the heat to meet our lad Buster. They brought their 11 yr old staffie Tess, who is to be Buster's older woman and mentor. Buster showed off his excellent doggy skills, not too over the top with Tess, and responded well when she told him off. It was very hot and the dogs coped well considering. We had a little saunter down to the river, where a swimming snake was the sighting of the day! Both dogs had a quick dip to cool down, then back to the paddock where Buster showed off, playing with a stuffed toy.
Buster is going to have a wonderful life and will hopefully settle once he realises that he's home for good!
Good luck lovely boy. Just look at that happy face!
