In honor of “Hump Day,” Buddy the camel was at Xtreme Juice on Wednesday, posing for pictures as guests lined up to get smoothies. Buddy, who is 7, came with Nanny the goat and their handler, Larry Rivera, of Camel Rides International in Clearwater.

The 13-year-old smoothie shop, at 619 S. Dale Mabry Highway, was promoting its Wheatgrass Wednesday special and paying homage to a popular Geico commercial.
