The dog's name is Buddy. He is a boy because "I don't think a girl dog would let that happen." His youngest owner named him. He is the one who put a towel on Buddy. Buddy is now going up to the parents and saying "get this thing off of me." He is an older dog and he is well trained so even though he is annoyed, he is still sitting for the picture. Buddy got into this situation because he went into the bathroom, grabbed a towel, and ran around with it. The kids saw him and wanted to play superheroes with him. Buddy is just the sidekick because the kids want all the power. The kids names are Tommy and Jack. Tommy is the owner, and Jack is his best friend. They are around the ages of 5 and 6. Now, Buddy is going to the parents and saying "I am an animal not a dog." He will eventually have to take off the cape himself, but it won't be too hard because it is just secured in his collar.
