Buck the Dog isn’t letting fame go to his head. Star of the recent book, Buck’s New Home, this Boston Terrier would rather cuddle up under a blanket on the sofa than walk the red carpet and sign autographs.

Especially now that Halloween is over and the holiday commercials with the cute silly dogs wearing sweaters are on the TV, I can hear her exclaim, “How cute!” Then she looks over at me and asks, “Buck, don’t you want to wear a sweater and wook handsome?”
