||My Name is Buddy "Franklin" Oliver, but I have several nicknames depending on who is talking to me; Frankie, Big Guy, Good-Boy, Bud, Big Buddy, Frankenstein & Frank-man. Frankiboy, Mr Green Jeans, Captain Grey Beard.
|Birth Day, Month and Year:
||more than 100 lbs.
||Franklin did go through clicker Obedience training school and he passed!!
A very special thing about him is when he came to live with us at age 5 weeks, we already had a dog. Baby, a 8 year old mutt. She did not like him at all at first, but now she does. She is also now a diabetic and has gone blind. She has to get two shots a day. If she cries when she gets her shot, he sort of crowds us a little with his body to get closer to her, if she doesn't cry he will wag his tail. He watches over her at the park and will go to where she is so she can hear him if she is going in the wrong direction and that helps her get back on the right path. If she looses her toy he will retrieve it for her and either go drop it in front of her or bring it to us so we can give it back to her. He will not load-up in our truck to go home until she is in there first.
And we adopted another black lab, Kasidee, from the SPCA,
one year ago. She has seperation anxiety and he really tries to comfort her when they are not able to be where we are.
Baby, 15925 and Kasidee, 15927 both have pages on the dog channel, too.
|My pet peeves:
||I don't like it when I want to sit by my family and something or someone is in the space I want to be in.
||I do love to swim and chase a retrieving toy on land as well as fetch it in the water.
|My favorite hang out spot?
||In our garage where it is cool and I can watch the front yard and anything our neighbors might be doing. In the house the rest of the time with Kasidee  and CandySugar.
|My favorite grub:
||Well, I'm on a diet, so right now it's R/D prescribed low call dog food made by Science Diet and all the green beans I want!
|My favorite treat:
||I love cow ears and low fat yogurt for a treat.
|My favorite tricks:
||Ask me if I am your friend, and I will try to shake your hand with both paws while smiling at you!!I can sing and dance!! I also will go through a routine of sitting down, then laying down, and I end with singing. I will stop at every stop sign while we are out walking him and wait until I hear, 'it's good,' before I move again.I retrieve the newspaper for my people,too, and oh my sometimes I try to tear it up first!
|What I love about my owner:
||They treat me like I am one of them! If it's cold, they get me another blanket to lay on. If it's hot they put a fan near me. No matter my need they meet it.
