Lena has a boyfriend, a buddy, called Buddy.
She has taken to visiting Buddy as often as possible, either at his house in Bowral, or at his Mum's shop in Robertson, where Buddy hangs out frequently.
Buddy is quite a bit older than Lena, and he is normally pretty staid and he sleeps a lot. But when Lena turns up, Buddy gets quite "young" again.

and wagging her tail.
They wrestle, they tease eachother by playing with various "rope" toys, and mostly Buddy just tries to nip Lena near her mouth and ears, and around her neck, and on her legs, and just about everywhere.
She loves it, and constantly comes back for more.
She spends most of these "fights" lying on her side or back, because Lena is about twice Buddy's size.

Because Buddy lives in a house, when he tries something a bit more "interesting", he gets scolded, till he stops that idea. Sometimes it is Lena who does the scolding, and sometimes it is his people who shout at him. Either way, he gets the idea, and forgets his other plan.
Above all, they are really good friends, and like eachother's company enormously.
Lena is tired, now!
Buddy has an issue with storms. He hates thunder and lightning, which is why there is only one photo here of Buddy. What?
Well, Buddy thinks camera flashes are lightning, and therefore, one flash means there is a Thunderstorm coming. Right?
So, as soon as a camera is produced, Buddy heads for his bed, climbs under the blanket, and hides there till everything is calm again. Poor Buddy. It is a shame, as he is actually quite photogenic, but he is ridiculously "camera shy" - because of the "lightning machine".
That's why there is only one photo of Buddy here. If you look, Buddy is checking out the evil "Lightning machine" (camera), prior to making for his bed.
