This is Buster.
Buster is a VERY good dog. He turned 9 on July 30th this year and has a few grey hairs in his muzzle and on his back.
Scott inherited Buster as a two-year-old. His previous owners could no longer take care of him and Scott was fortunate enough to have the right connections to take him in.
I met Buster when I arrived in Key West last year. He accepted me very readily and it was easy to teach him that although he had been trained to chase cats up until this point, the NEW cats are "babies", which translates into "something not to mess with."
He is very respectful and knows that when we are eating dinner he needs to be in another part of the house and not beg.
Buster is the picture of loyalty. If Scott or I even joke about chasing one of the cats, Buster gets between us and the cat and barks. It's far worse if we even joke attack each other - he gets up on his hind legs and boxes us.
He will never look the cats in the eye, he knows not to intimidate them. On the other hand, he will also let the Hamster sit on his head.
He is known as Buster, Duster Boggie, Buddy, and Brown Thing.
I am officially a member of the Boxer party.
