Cudda has lots of new friends

Thank you for saving me and letting me find a wonderful new home! Back at the shelter you all knew me by the name Cudda, but when my mum adopted me in Nov 2012 she decided to rename me Buddy, 'cos I'm her best bud!


At the beginning it was just me & mum together all the time because I took a while to trust new people. After a while she slowly introduced me to some of her family and friends, they all loved me immediately of course even though I wasn't as friendly, and eventually I learnt that humans aren't all that bad - Now I have heaps of new friends.

Once a month we go to the Small Dogs Activity Club where I get to run around over a bunch of obstacles & through tunnels (mum has some great photo's). The problem is that mum cant run as fast as me so she holds me back a bit, now I'm training her so we can do it off the lead, that way I can speed off ahead like a pro. I love it here because I get to play with plenty of other dogs and meet new humans. The humans here ALWAYS have treats with them and will slip some my way because I'm so handsome.


At home I have lots of toys, my favourite ones are those that squeak, mum shakes her head and laughs at me when I play with these while she's watching TV, she is so nice to me! Other times I just like to cuddle up next to her, or on top of her, as long as I'm close I feel safe. On weekends we often have afternoon naps together on the couch. I have my own bed on the floor in mum's bedroom but the secret is to wait a while until mum falls asleep and then I am sneaky like a ninja and jump in to her bed - I can even get under the covers without her realizing. She wakes up in the morning cuddling me and is all confused about how I got there, its hilarious! Sometimes she makes me go back in my own bed, but usually she cant resist letting me stay because I give really good cuddles!

Mum says thank you for looking after me for so long at the shelter and training me, she says I learn new things very quickly.... except the part where I'm not supposed to sleep in her bed. I am so happy in my new home and wouldn't be here without your help!


I have added some photo's - mum takes about 10 a day because I'm so cute & I am already famous amongst all her facebook friends!

Lots of love,

Buddy (AKA Cudda)
