Buddy is an older gentleman who has many of the qualities that have endeared Goldens to us for years. He has the white face of wisdom but still rolls in the snow with the enthusiasm of youth! When I walk him, his tail is held high and swishes with his every step as he trots forward. Buddy watches my every move and sometimes follows me from room to room. If I sit, he will soon make himself comfortable and before long he is asleep, snoring like my grandpa. He has been good in the house, just barks a few times when I leave (maybe until he realizes that I am not returning right away). Together, Buddy and my dog sound the alarm when a noisy truck passes the house or they hear some other noise undetectable to the human ear. Good thing he is on a schedule: he never asks to go outside. He's a camel! Buddy is a bit insecure on the wood floors so uses each area rug as an island and almost tip toes to the next rug. It's very cute!
