That dog is very smart. At the beginning he looks back to make sure he has the cops attention before he takes off. When he gets to the house he stops and looks back at the cop as if to say here it is. That is true communication between man and dog.

It has been ascertained that Buddy started the fire himself maliciously. The depth of the cover up regarding this case is shocking.

If Buddy had started the fire on purpose who would not have to look for help now would he??

I would be proud to have this dog a member of my family, maybe a little brother or something. Maybe even a first cousin.

Hobittual obviously lacks opposable thumbs (I work with guys like him).

Good job Buddy!
AWESOME!

goes to show you, you never know how smart animals really are. makes me think of all of them that are slaughtered for our food. don't get me wrong, I love a good steak as much as the next guy, but as I get older, i find myself just not wanting to eat meat less and less, for this reason. there are people that would find buddy tasty.

we used to have a german shepherd that would jump our fence in the front of the house (nobody knew this, at the time) if we didn't see him around the yard, we'd call him, from the back door. pretty soon, he'd come from around the side of house. then one day, I was at the front window, while my brother was calling him in the back. pretty soon I see him tearing ass up the street, jumps the fence, then nonchalantly walks around to the back like "hey, whats up?" another smart little devil
