Marshall and Buckley
I did a post about Marshall last March celebrating his
10 years living with us (he's 11 now).
Buckley is our son's dog and was 4 in December.
He doesn't live far away and we often look after each
other's dog when one of us is away.
Buck watching out the window for his master's truck. So sad.
Mark was away for a few days in January so we looked
after Buck for him. He wandered around the house
crying and whining for a half a day. He just wouldn't
Now, this is what I wanted.
I got an old quilt (don't worry it has a lot of holes in it) and
threw it over the wingback chair and he cozied in.
I had caught him one other time curled up in this chair so
I knew he'd like it here.
We don't allow Marshall on the furniture but they are
both allowed on it at Mark's!
Aww...Do I really have to get down?
I happen to keep this old coverlet on the sofa just in case
Marshall reverts to his old habits. Good thing.
I looked in the living room one day and found a guilty
looking Buckley curled up.
Maybe if I just lay in front of 'his' truck someone will take me back home. ;(
Buck loves to lay beside or under the truck.
Marshall loves to dig holes in the snow.
Maybe if I did far enough I'll get through to Alberta and find Mark.
Thankfully, Mark came home after 6 days and Buckley was a very
happy boy. I wish I'd been here the day he came back
to see how excited the dogs were.
As I said, we've had Marshall for over 10 years after
the kids talked us into getting him. Then they moved out.
But, Marshall didn't. Well, he did for a while but he's
mostly lived here even though he 'thinks' Mark is
still his master. He's our dog now.
Marshall is part husky and loves the snow although at his age he doesn't like the cold as much now.
There 's the story of our pet(s) dog(s).
I love them both and they have brought a lot of joy
to my life.
