Buster Among the Ferns

Fellow Campers:

Ms. Bailey Blue, Pond Princess and Dock Diva, reporting.

I have come to the most disturbing conclusion that Buster, endowed with little more than his diminutive, testosterone-soaked brain, nevertheless garners far more than his legitimate share of attention.

Regard this hapless specimen! What unseen force could create the impression of general affability and sweetness? Yet HE gets to accompany his human slaves on almost ALL the walks...

He gets MOST of the boat rides. And he's a sloppy mariner at that!

He is always being swept up and cuddled by some human! One would think he possessed some ineffable aura of appeal; I do not understand what they see in him.

Observe the casual insouciance with which he navigates the Chemin de Fougères!

And what do I, Supreme Princess of the Pond, get?

Buster's rather ample tail!

Well, I confess, it IS a somewhat attractive tail, as far as that part of the anatomy goes...

There remains but one creature on the Pond with a greater quotient of arrogant self-assurance in contrast to his rather gawky appearance.

You guessed it: Big Bird, our Great Blue Heron!

Buster and Big Bird get along wonderfully. They must share some bizarre impulse to make the world laugh.

I'll have more to report later, but it is time to chase small animals.

Your faithful correspondent,

Ms Bailey Blue
Doyenne of the Dock

It's only fitting that the Great Blue Heron is YOUR Great Blue Heron. We just hope he is a respectful one.
The one here scares the piddle out of us when we cross his footbridge and he flies out - at dusk.

Your pals,
Jake and Miss Fergi

You know what they say about the squeaky wheel. In our house Fudge gets way too much attention, because he is the bad boy.

What does you mom do about those wet beards. It seems like this summer our beards are always wet and she doesn't like us to rest them in her lap when she's wearing shorts.

Bisous, Faya

Well Buster certainly is the golden furchild in your household hehe. Must be a male thing. I guess I'm a little spoilt too.
That lake sure looks peaceful. What is the lake called btw? We must google it. D is a geography head and likes to know where place are. We know it's in New Hampshire.

So far Leura is Swine Flu free. Though nearly everyone we know has had a flu lately. D has been affected by 2 colds so far this winter.
