Thanks. This is Buddy, he has lived his whole life on the farm. He's around 11 years old which is getting up there for a pure bred Lab. He can't hear anymore, his eyesight is very poor and his hips are really bad.
He's a gentle giant, he loves kids and will do anything just to get a pat on the head.
Aww. I expected something totally different when I only read the title, but I like who I see here! Buddy --- old boy. Hang in there. You will not be sent away so you would need to go to Bremen and become a town musician there, right? (Does everyone understand the allusion?)
