Dog: Buster, a 6-year-old Golden Retriever
Owner: Steve Schmidt, Roseland
When he’s not taking long walks on the beach or on nature paths, Buster is busy loving his favorite toy to pieces—literally: What used to be a red stuffed animal is now just a ball of fluff, but he enjoys it just the same, reports owner Steve. Some of Buster’s other choice pastimes include making new friends (he prefers humans over other pooches, Steve says), taking mid-day snoozes and anxiously awaiting his owner’s return at the end of each day. Oh, and if you really want to get in good with him, just offer a belly rub, a lap to sleep on and lots of love.
