Buddy the Flying Dog

A cross between a Great Dane and a German shepherd of course. Dumped on us a few months ago; Buddy is the size of a small horse. He has big ears and exotically interesting markings of black and white. Year and a half old, he chews up everything in and out of his sight. He has chewed up a mattress of memory foam, and six of my shoes. Mates of each he has never felt compelled to taste; so I always lose. He has eaten the leather off some couches, and an antique chair. He often comes flying at me at ninety degrees – traveling in the air. Lands on my lap; his big butt hits the button and the chair reclines. Stuck in a laying position until my husband finally hears my whines. Buddy has eaten every poison mouse trap in the garage and hall. Loves chasing rabbits, squirrels, the cat and a yellow tennis ball. Easier if Sophie, our twelve-year-old cocker spaniel was gone. She is angry as a heck that this giant is on the loose, no swan. Dainty in no way, he is a giant puppy who wants to frolic and play. And Shark the cat, has been missing since Buddy showed up one day.

I wonder if Shark found a new home? I've heard so much about Buddy, I'd love to see him. He is so lucky he found your home because I know some people who woule have been cruel to him. Perhaps they were, and that's why he showed up at the Krutsinger home.

He was asleep on the couch (leather) on the porch when I saw him the first time. He still runs in and out the doggie door all night long and sleeps out there even when it is cold and he has two beds in the house. Shark is nowhere to be seen. I have not seen him for a week.
