Happy Birthday Boogie!
December 11th., three years ago, was Boogie’s adoption day.
Video: This was how we met.
One kiss from that little dog and I was signing away a $350 donation check to Boston Buddies. Rachel said to me: “If it doesn’t work out, it’s ok. Bring him back and we will refund your money. There are many others who are interested in this little guy.” They all said that he was so unusually calm for a boston terrier… dog-friendly, cat-friendly… which made him a popular choice.
In those first few weeks, Boogie’s dad often exclaimed: “This dog is so perfect and well-behaved. There is nothing wrong with him! “
How ironic that this perfect dog would turn out to be so complicated and expensive. And of course, VERY LOVED…as he still is today.
Here is an old favorite photo of Boogie sleeping with his beloved tennis balls.
This year Boogie is getting a Nina Ottoson DOG FIGHTER interactive toy. ($50!!??!!) Like all other Nina Ottosons, this toy is designed to “really make your dog think”. Ha – I can’t wait to see what happens…
Recently I received this book – 101 Dog Tricks – as a christmas present. Last week I took advantage of the Tawzer Dog Videos Black Friday Sale and ordered The Magic Of Shaping (DVD). Am I getting carried away here? Will I ever have enough time to do all these training/gaming challenges with Boogie?
