In case anybody was wondering, here's Bune. He is every bit as ridiculous as he seems to be.
And actually, he is everything I ever hoped for in a dog. For better or worse, he is my fluffy white shadow. At the moment, he is on my foot.
His interactions with the kids are remarkably different. The Big Guy? Yeah, Bune is pretty sure he is another puppy. Babykid? Bune says, "Whatever you say, Little Boss." Good stuff. I love this guy.
This happened. Oh my gosh. I can't tell you how much I have wanted--no, needed--a dog in my life. He was born on April 22, 2013. He is a golden doodle. He is as close to perfect as any dog I have had.
Why "Bune"? Well. The Big Guy is a fearless phonetic speller, and an avid lover of bunny rabbits. This year at school, he and the Babykid would join me in my classroom in the mornings before it was time for them to go to school and mostly draw. One of the favorite things to draw, of course, was bunnies. All of the captions said "bune." You know--bu, ne. Bunny. Brilliant. Well, several months later, the Babykid began to draw pictures of bunnies and she too began to caption them "bunes," and it occurred to me that of course, Bune is the name of our future dog. So it is. We love him.
