Bucky on Thursday
How old is too old to be called a baby? Bucky has to be with mom when she's around. If she gets up in the morning and wants a cup of tea before the day starts, he barks at the top of the stairs until someone brings him down. If she carries a big basket of laundry upstairs, he cries at the bottom of the stairs until she gets a free hand and come fetch the 25 lb pug belly. The bathroom habit is the worst. When mom takes a shower, Bucky waits outside the bathroom door. If no one else is in the house, he cries at the door. To save on the ear plugs, mom brings Bucky's pillow into the bathroom and let him supervise her shower. Sometimes she has to chase him down or lure him in with a toy, that just makes him happier. Sometimes Bucky gets hot from all the steam, mom opens the window to give him some air, even though she rather likes the steam herself. Bucky is twelve years old.
