Uncle Buckley

Mum and dad went to visit my Uncle Buckley on the weekend. It's part of the reason they left me alone for two nights in a row.

Uncle Buckley is Grandpa's dog. He is a White Swiss Shepherd dog. Last time I talked about him, he had been to the v-e-t because it was time for his injections and they told my Grandpa he needed to go on a diet because he weighed 64.8kg. That's 142lbs. I don't think Queen Meeshka needs to worry.

Here is a picture of Uncle Buckley from the weekend:

I think he might have secretly been attending Stormy's class on posing for photos because he wouldn't sit properly for mum when she had the camera out. Every photo we downloaded was of his tail or his back or him looking away.

Here he is helping Grandpa with the dishes:

He's a very helpful pup! Mum always calls him the polar bear because he's big and white. And he has big teeth. Like a polar bear.

Hey Huffle Mawson,

I like your Uncle Buckley just the way he is! My human K had a dog before me who also was a bit hefty, but she says he was much more huggable that way. Why didn't you go visit Uncle Buckley? You did not sound too happy to be left all alone.

Holy cow!! He sure is a big boy!! I think a diet is definitely in order!!! Green beans are a wonderful, and tasty substitute for 1/2 of his kibble. That's how I lost 11 pounds.

I've heard all about the green bean diet from Holly. Also, my mom is trying it out now for herself. :-)

A polar bear! Ha roo roo roo! I like that one!
I like to help with the dishes like your Uncle Buckley does. Do you ever do that? It's great fun.
We have a VERY special guest coming, then some celebrations, THEN I think Ammy and I can drive to your house. I can't wait! I'm going to do a map=quest plan for our trip today!
Play bows,
