Marin’s four-legged friends and the
humans who love them.
MONA STEINBERG WITH BUSTER
BREED: MCNAB CIT Y: SAN ANSELMO
WHERE DID YOU MEET? We met at the Marin Humane Society the day after Christmas 2010 when he was two-and-a-half months old. We brought him home
t wo days later. He was one of a litter of seven born in Mendocino. His name was Freddy when we met him. We were told when we adopted him that he
was quite smart and would require a lot of engagement and play time. That remains true to this day. FAVORI TE SNACK? Cheese, steak, the wrist of anyone
he likes — he gently shows his affection by hugging a wrist with his mouth. FAVORI TE PARK/TRAIL? He loves San Quentin Beach. He likes the Elliot Nature
Preserve. He has spent many, many hours at the Mill Valley Dog Park but we have to be careful if there are boxers present. DOES HE SLEEP IN YOUR BED?
I wish. He loves to sleep on beds and couches but only if he has them entirely to himself. His favorite place to sleep other than the couch is his pink beanie
bag on the floor. THE ORIGIN OF HIS NAME. Look at him — he was a rascal when we first brought him home as a puppy and we had no choice but to call him
Buster. SOME THING UNIQUE ABOUT HIM. A few things. He loves to jump up in the air for bubbles and is known as “Buster the Bubble Dog” at some local
parks and from his Good Morning America “Your GMA Moment” appearance. He has always been partial to the color pink and he hates boxers.
