A Year Ago, Today
Posted Date: : Dec 11, 2008 8:10 PM
I remember visiting the BostonBuddies website everyday to look at “Willy”‘s picture and to see if there was any new info on him. And then I finally gave in and rang Rachael for a description. This was what Rachael said to me: “Lili, Willy is PERFECT. I want to take him home myself. He is a calm dog… he is perfect.” And then she told me that there were two other people interested in him… did I want to meet him?
I made an appointment… Wes and I drove out to Long Beach …
[did I already call him "Boogie"?? I must've been testing out his new adoption name already :)]
The lady who ran the boarding house – you could tell – was disappointed to let him go. She had bonded with this boy. He was her favorite.
One year later, we are learning that this little dog is by no means a “perfect” dog. He is very naughty. OK, you can blame his parents for spoiling him and especially for introducing him to the concept of receiving food from the human dining table… I will live forever to regret this move :) And think of all those murdered cushions and plush toys and the many times he went through my trash…
Regardless, I love Boogie. I cannot imagine life without him. He puts a smile on my face every morning and gets me out of my chair during the day (…to chase him, ball in mouth, around the apartment). He is a bundle of sweetness and amusement. He is the best little dog in our world. Thank you, Boston Buddies, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOGIE MONSTER!
