Today I got the call.
I surprised Buddha in the middle of his day, which was very exciting... until I put him in the car. His little brow furrowed and he looked at me like, "um, are my parents aware of this?"
We continued driving and he got a little more worried. "Am I being kidnapped?"
He whined a lot and was SUPER obnoxious until I let him sit on my lap and help drive.
We got to my house and he stayed in the kitchen while his cousins licked their lips behind the gate and pondered whether they were going to eat him if given the chance.
Buddha, Griffin and Olivia played at the park for a full 30 minutes and got covered, head to toe in mud.
Buddha and Grif re-started the neighborhood watch- just two bro puppies barking at everything together.
When we got home, as soon as I closed the gate, Grif got that look in his eye and lunged for Buddha. I was expecting it, so I had Buddha in my arms before the teeth could fly. I cleaned off Buddha first and then he hung out in the living room while Griffin and Olivia stayed in the kitchen until it was time to take Bu home.
Bulldogs in the back, Buddha on my lap, we drove him home.
She was more than a little annoyed that her cousin got to ride shotgun when she doesn't usually get that privilege.
The Brigade being back together was exhausting. 3 dogs- I don't remember it being that much work!
