Bukowski Bukaroo Bonsai Dew Drops in the Morning

Just seconds ago, my annoying loving puppers was sticking his head in my lap as I checked facebook. He was saying (in a Cockney accent because he is an English Pointer but not civilized enough to have a regular English accent), "I'm so bored. Give meh food, love, o' take meh to the bloody dog park gov'na." I said back to him, "Buky, it's really raining outside and I'm sorry but we will not be going to the dog park." Then I gave him a little love as he already ate breakfast.

I then realized that Buk hasn't really gotten much attention on this here blog. His cuddly brothers have gotten more attention because, well, they usually are more precious and cute. I mean look at what this dog looks like sometimes.

Anywho, Buky is a whopping six years old now and he is starting to turn white in his once bright orange spots. He is still incredibly energetic though and will out run anyone at the dog park. Most people ask how old he is thinking I'll say 9 months. He can be a little out of control sometimes. But, even with his bounding around and limbs flying every which way, I get told that he is a beautiful dog at least once when we go places. He really is.

While he still can't control himself at the park, Buk has calmed down a lot at home. He can lay down and be chill most of the day. We don't usually have to worry about him chewing up shit anymore. Now he just gets into the crap the cats get into first and he finishes up the job.

Buk is loving and cuddly and wants to be on the bed all.the.time. But, he can't because he sheds his white hair like a polar bear in Hawaii (I don't know, I just made that up. I'm sure those bears totally shed in Hawaii). I also am incredibly allergic to Buk. When he licks my arm (he doesn't lick faces, thank goodness), I instantly break out in hives. But, it's hard not to let him lick because he is being so loving.

But, there are some bad habits that Bukaroo has too. I won't discuss them because they are actually really gross. Let's just say that when Buk gets bored, he likes to entertain himself.

Mr Peps and I have talked about getting Buk a sister or brother but that probably won't happen until he is older and we are really in need of a replacement dog. We want Buk to teach a new puppy about the ways of our household. He already did a pretty good job with his younger cousin. But, no dog will ever replace Buky for real. He is a goofy, loving boy in his own way and he will always be our first doggie and Mr Pepperworth's first best friend.

Plus, no dog will ever be as silly as this....

And yes, the title is Buk's real name. It has to be fancy for when he is entered into the dog shows.
