Congratulations Buddy! A country fellow through and through, who enjoys the great outdoors and spending time with his doting folks, Nicki and Charlie, Buddy lives for adventure! The only thing that gets this pup down is rain, because it means he has to spend the day inside; although bouncing around on the family futon is also great fun! No doubt Buddy stares out of the window waiting for winter to end so that he can run around in the sweet smell of grass, making him the ideal pooch to be crowned Pet of the Month for February 2011! Keep reading to learn more about this month’s winner!

How Did Buddy Come Into Your Life?
My husband and I got Buddy from a country man in the backwoods of Mississippi (pretty much the middle of nowhere) a month after we started dating. It was love at first sight!
Funniest Personality Quirk:
It is hard to say what his funniest personality quirk is, because he has so many! He is is full of personality and hilarious! First of all, he is extremely energetic. He loves to run around and he is also very nosy. He always wants to know what is going on with all of our neighbours. We have a long hallway in our apartment, and he spends a good portion of the day running from the back door (where he looks out to see the staircase) down the hall to the sun-room, where he jumps on the futon we have so he can look out the windows into our apartment’s courtyard. My mom always says he goes ‘on patrol’ looking for trouble!
Tug-of-war and fetch – set on repeat. He will play all day!
The stuffed green frog or his stuffed penguin.
Favourite February Thing:
Spending time in the park playing in the snow.
Oh there are so many! Anything edible, haha. He once managed to steal half a meatloaf, which he enjoyed a lot!
How did Buddy get his name?
Quite by accident. My husband, Charlie, and I couldn’t agree on a name, and the name ‘Buddy’ just sort of happened. However, it really is the perfect name for him. He is so friendly and loving, the name definitely suits!
Buddy’s Theme Song:
“Love Fool” by The Cardigans, but with some changes to the lyrics: “Love me, love me, say that you love me. Feed me, feed me, go on and feed me.”
