Buddy Bacon is a young Landseer Newfoundland dog rescued from the SPCA in Gatineau, Quebec by Katherine and her husband Doug on December 18th, 2013.  Buddy was adopted to be a companion/brother to their other rescue dog, Nicholas. Nicholas is a Flat-coat Retriever from the SPCA in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

They are very important members of the Bacon household bringing love and laughter every day! Buddy was six months old when he arrived December 18th 2013 and Nicholas was six weeks old upon arrival on Nov 7th, 2012.  Nicholas was the alpha pup of thirteen puppies, he is extremely athletic and even though he’s not half the size as Buddy, he still runs the show!

Buddy arrived at 6pm from his long trip from Quebec.  He jumped out of the car, ran right over to Nicholas and they started playing together!  He came into the house, had his supper, made himself right at home and it was like he lived here his whole life!  Buddy is a very loyal and loving dog.  He just loves to be patted, can do several tricks and his very favorite pastime, bar-none is swimming, swimming, swimming!  At 1 1/2 years old he was 45 inches long (65 inches if you count his tail, 29 inches high, 44 inches around the girth and 145 pounds. Now at 4 years old he is currently 158 pounds.  Buddy’s neck and Nicholas’ waist line are the same size at 27 inches!  His first vet in New Brunswick was George Whittle at Saint John Animal Hospital who worked with all the Bacon pets through his long and caring career.  Once George retired Buddy moved to the valley to be closer to home in his excellent choice of vets with Dr. Kelley at Kennebecasis Valley Animal Hospital.  For the past 6 months Buddy has also been treated with Dr Kelley’s consent by renowned naturopathic, Bogdan Ciolanescu at Fairvale Animal Hospital owned and operated by Dr. Cathy Adams.  Dr Bogdan specializes in weight control, arthritis, joint injury, post surgery rehabilitation etc. with the use of water therapy (treadmill & swimming pool), acupuncture, laser treatments and Chinese herbs.  Buddy’s weight has gone from 179 to 158 pounds in the past six months.  Being a Newfoundland dog and a good eater this is something we keep a close eye on.  At one point,  Katherine was considering to offer pony rides but the slimmer Buddy is more much more happy and active!  Watch for him when you are out and about in Southern New Brunswick, he’s always happy to say hello!
