Arrival Story:
coming....Bobby is actually our goddog, we are his dog-mother and dog-father and get to have him in our family when his mommy travels.

Bobby just had his ACL rebuilt, and is recovering like only a Jack Russell can. He is a rough coated, cute as a button, CALM, loving, loves to sleep on the bed or couch. He is the calmest Jack we have ever met. Bobby loves to ride in the car, preferrably in the backseat where he can supervise. Bobby is full of personality--one of our dogs was bullying Bobby and he got irritated, so at the next meal he peed in her bowl. Now that is funny. Bobby was given to a rescue group when his first owner didn't want him anymore. Good for all of us, because he is one of a kind and we don't know what we would do without him. Did we mention how cute he is? Oh and Bobby has a new t-shirt he wears while he is on duty in San Francisco--SECURITY--check out his picture. Yep, he's always on patrol. Oh, and Bobby is so good lookin' that he also gets to model for magazines--he was in Real Simple!

Bobby's Recovery Diary

Sweet Michael, my hero is gone.

Michael James Keenan, who risked his life once before to save a stranger from drowning in the bay, died Monday at St. Francis Memorial Hospital from burns he suffered while rescuing a friend's dog from a fire.

Mr. Keenan turned 44 in March while being treated at San Francisco General Hospital. He was moved to St. Francis for continuing care of burns he had sustained over 80 percent of his body in the Feb. 6 house fire on Russian Hill.

An artist and sometime carpenter and fashion designer, Mr. Keenan grew up in Maine but spent most of the past 20 years on the West Coast. He started a hip clothing line with friends that honored his home state, called Maine-iacs, featuring durable designs and vibrant colors.

"He was the kind of guy who would walk into any pub and walk out with 15 friends," said Owen Kelly, who knew Mr. Keenan since childhood.

In 2001, Mr. Keenan saw a car drive into the bay near the St. Francis Yacht Club. He jumped into the water, broke out a window with a heavy wrench and managed to pull a woman to safety. Her husband drowned.

"He will always be my hero for life," the rescued woman, Heather Rosnow-Laarif, said Monday.

Mr. Keenan had been house sitting for a friend on Bonita Street, waiting for renovations to be completed on his own apartment, when the early morning blaze broke out. He made it out of the townhouse safely before realizing the dog was still inside.

Mr. Keenan was a lifelong dog lover. He later told a longtime friend, Frank Hsieh, that he had thought he could get the dog quickly, but found he had to search a while before finding the 10-year-old Jack Russell terrier, Bobby, cowering under a bed.

The dog survived after treatment at a local animal hospital.

For several weeks, friends and family said they were optimistic about Mr. Keenan's chances. But he suffered an infection recently that set back his progress, and he had a stroke Sunday night, Kelly said. BAGQUQHIC512.DTL

Bobby is pretty much fully recovered, and was the guest of honor at the blessing of the animals at this year's North Beach Festival:

Annual Animal Blessing: And lastly, the St. Francis Animal Blessings will take place inside the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi (610 Columbus Street) at 2 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. This wonderful tradition will also be honored by the presence of Bobby, a Jack Russell Terrier who survived a house fire in February 2007 and is proof of how much animals/pets are cherished.

We are so pleased that so many people care about Bobby and all the other furry creatures in San Francisco.


I'm home I'm home!!

I am home with my beloved Janette today! I am so happy to be home even though I still have a long road to recovery. Thanks everyone for your notes and well wishes, and especially thanks to everyone at Pet's Unlimited. I received the best care, and alot of love from every person on staff.

Please remember Michael, as he still has very long, long recovery ahead of him.
