What makes Buoy such a lucky dog? First of all, he’s a true island dog, born here on the Isle of Palms.
His mother is Isla Ross and lives just a few blocks away, along with a number of siblings.
He has often run into some of his siblings when out and about on trips to Capers or early morning walks on our beach.
Buoy gets a lot of beach time; almost every morning he gets to play with all his friends – too many to name. When he’s not romping on the beach, there’s a good chance he might be at the Bark Park meeting new friends. Oh, did we mention he has his own boat? That’s right: Buoy’s Boat. Look for us on the waterway, as long as it’s not too “ruff” out. All kidding aside, we are the lucky ones to have such a wonderful pet who brings us such joy and that ever-present unconditional love. Buoy is truly a lucky dog, and we are truly lucky to have him.
