It's All in the Paws - Buddy Learns to Crochet

Winter has finally descended upon the beautiful Garden State of New Jersey, and Buddy Fergurson's
mom has finally located her crocheting in the back of the hall closet.


Buddy has been thinking about learning to crochet for quite a while now.

It really doesn't look that hard to learn.

Well on second thought...

When all else fails...

 There... finally under control!

Time to Fly

Buddy Fergurson's mom said she couldn't have made this picture up in her wildest dreams.  Going flying Buddy?  Or maybe dreaming about rabbits?  Or perhaps maybe you just had too much excitement over the Thanksgiving weekend?  That Buddy...what a guy!

Princess And Her Pet Wheelchair Cart

Buddy was looking through his mom's blog the other day and ran across a post she did last year about the pet wheelchair cart his sister Princess uses.  Although Princess spends less time in it these days, she going to be turning 14 soon, she still uses her wheelchair as an aid to help her stand when she eats, and also to run around the kitchen in while her mom fixes dinner.  Of course Buddy doesn't really like that Princess can run to get dropped bits of food faster then he can - but he still thinks she looks pretty cute in her cart!

Last fall when our pug Princess got her wheelchair I posted some pictures online and received quite a few questions about her condition and also inquires about the company we used for the chair. 
Princess has both a neurological problem and also issues with her lower spine which has resulted in her not being able to walk on her back legs.  She is in no pain what-so-ever, just turned 13 last month and is still going strong.

We got the wheelchair online from a company called Senior Pet Care Products.  The chair was under $200 and it was made to her specific measurements.  The company was great to work with.  I would definitely recommend them.

Princess uses her chair several times a day for about 20 minutes at a time.  It tires her out, so I don't like to have it her in it too long.  When Princess eats she uses it to help her to stand up, and as you'll see she also "loves" to go outside in it when the weather is nice.

I had forgotten about this video footage I took of her last fall, so when I found it I thought I would share it so that others can see how the chair works and also how happy she is using it.  Go Prin!

Buddy's Pancake Sunday

It's Sunday, and Buddy Fergurson hopes that his Dad is planning to make pancakes!

As Kevin examined the box, he notices that it's not the brand his Mom usually uses (she likes to use a whole grain, organic brand).  But Buddy isn't going to complain!

                                                     First one off the griddle... nice.  Very acceptable! 

     Princess and Buddy think they might need a sample.

 Of course Buddy would like a little more!

                                                              And maybbbee just another little taste...

                                                                 Wait......don't forget about Kevin!

Oh Buddy... I'd hide my head too!  There goes your diet.  Guess that means an extra walk for you today!

Available For Play!

It's a beautiful day out today.  Buddy Fergurson's mom is busy picking up her studio and also getting some jewelry ready for a Holiday Craft Sale.  Buddy has his own ideas of course.  If anyone is interested, he's definitely "available for play"!

Buddy's Big Week

It's finally Friday... and what a week it's been for Buddy Fergurson!  First he watched the St. Louis Cardinals win the World Series...

Then, there was the surprise October snow storm.  Buddy always looks forward to eating a little snow and playing with Kevin, but October is a little early!

Then it was Halloween.  Princess wanted to dress up, so Buddy let her wear his pumpkin sweater.

 The snow melted pretty quickly, but there were a lot of tree limbs and branches down in the yard.  Buddy offered to help his Dad clean up!

                                                                   Then it was time for a rest!

Buddy's Christmas List

      Buddy and Kevin Fergurson discuss the new holiday dog catalog that their Mom got in the mail.
                                                                    A $300 hundred dollar bed?

     Sorry...  But Buddy knows that if their family had that kind of extra Christmas money, they'd be donating it to a pet shelter or rescue organization or the New Jersey Food Pantry.  And he wouldn't have it any other way!
