Life with Buddy is GREAT! Buddy and Mocha are great together - just like a loving sister and brother (good "buddies"). He's a really smart guy. We spent 2 weeks in March in the NC mountains and he found his way around really well. Loves the space and freedom to roam by himself and also together with Mocha, has his routine of making the rounds of "inspecting his territory" each day - comes back when summoned.
