Paddling Pool and Marcus

Tuesday was a very good day. Suddenly my paddling pool was back!

It was full of water.

This is me and Milo in it.

Then Zeus got in it. There was no room left for me.
But today I went in it again.


Below is a picture of Marcus with exactly the same monkey as me!

A note from Buster's Mum:

 I loved Marcus of Umbria, Justine van der Leun's vivid memoir of a year spent in the Italian countryside. The star of the book is Marcus, an enchanting young pointer, whose early life was very different indeed from urban Mr.Buster's -- not that Buster wouldn't love to kill chickens and rabbits; he's not quite so sure about the tick business.....
Justine's spot-on meditation on travel, love and all things Italian(not to mention all things dog) brought back so many memories (both good and less good)of when we lived there years ago. 
Highly recommended.

My Brilliant Career and I am Busy

This is my latest box project. "Box Modifications". Dad said there was an art show
 where the artist moved the radiators from the forth floor onto the second floor.

So I think I could be in The New York Times too.

I am eating the invoice that came in the box with the cushions in it. I am 'altering' that.

This is my monkey that I got at the pet expo. He used to have
 5 squeakers. Now he does not have any. I have been working very hard.

I think maybe my monkey is dead now.

Walter's Birthday Party

Yesterday was Walter's birthday party. I was really happy.

This is Knutty wearing his party hat.

This is Darcy wearing hers.

Walter's hat fell off.

So we played around anyway.

When it was time to go home, we got treats from Tito.
That is WALT-TITO.  (Like I am Buster-Wuster.)  It was fun.

I hope you had a good day too.

Family Day

On Sunday my nephew Henry came over.

So did Joba. When they cut his hair they forgot to do his head.

He looks funny.

Henry got a new toy. It is a duck with little ducks. One rattles. One squeaks.

I wanted it and I wanted it. I was not allowed to have it.

Then me and Joba played. You can see my stick sculpture in the back ground.

My Week by Buster

This is me on my rock.

Same thing with shadows on it.

This is a very sad banana. Dad showed it to me.

Anyway, me and Knutty went to see some ships
 and Knutty's nose got cut off. Haha. Just joking.

I went to Madison Square Park with Jasper and met some people.

This is me listening to banjo music and being attentive.

Mum said  the other day that maybe I am running out of things
to say in my blog. Like went to dog park. Saw Knutty.

Professor Joba is coming over later and my nephew Henry.

Hope you are having a good Sunday.

Back to Normal

Mum is back and we went to the dog park like we did every day when she was not here.

I got a new blue ball for a present since I ate the last one.
Dad tries to take it away from me.

Then I run round the room with it.
Then it goes under the sofa and someone has to get it out for me.

Then I sit on my bed and dare people to take it from me.

I hope you are well and having fun too.

Mum's Vacation

Mum went to England to see her human relatives.
Dad is looking after me and taking me to the park.
Mum will come home on Tuesday night.
So this is an old photo of me.

This is my English cousin Tatti.

This is a horse and a bear.
I think something bad happened to the person.

Spring at the Park

The leaves have come out and it is dapply. We are on the steps.

Knutty is looking over the edge.

They have put the water on. Milo and Knutty are in it.
Knutty is getting brave.

You can see how wet it is in this picture. Milo's chin is wet.

Later Mum went to try on jeans at the Gap. Me and Knut are waiting for her.

I hope you are having a good time.
