He didn't have any that I can remember. He was VERY laid back!
He wasn't a huge fan of toys. He was too busy laying around.
He did love to roam in the woods behind the property we live on.
His best trick was changing my mom into a dog lover. Because of the love of this wonderful dog, she now knows the joy of "doggie love"!
We were at the flea market and this little boy was walking around with the cutest puppy. I asked if I could pet him, and it was then that I noticed the boy was crying. I asked him what was wrong and he said his mom wouldn't let him keep the puppy. I looked back at my mom, begging silently. She had never let us have a dog before...had actually forbade it. But, for some reason, that puppy softened her heart. She just nodded at me. The boy tearfully handed him over, and I promised to take care of him. That's how we got our Boo-Butt!
He was the most laid back dog in the world! Loved laying around...we actually started calling him "The Boo Rug" b/c we had to step over him on the floor so much! Very sweet and loyal. When I worked at the vet's office, I could take him to work and he would lay back there behind the reception's desk with me and just chill. Everyone that came in loved him and thought he was so beautiful. And the whole neighborhood loved him. He used to go visit my cousin next door. He loved telling the story of how Tabu would come to his door and scratch to be let in, and then after he let him in, he'd climb on the couch and take a nap. He was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at an early age, so I was already saving up for the hip replacement I knew would come one day. But, the day after Christmas 1997, a car came speeding down our road and took our precious Boo out of this world w/out even slowing down. I will always love him and never forget what a wonderful best friend he was.

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying. You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today. Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "Good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.

I don't even know where to begin. It has been almost 9 years since we lost you, but I still feel the pain in my heart. I will NEVER forget you, my Boo. So beautiful and such a wonderful companion. You were so sweet and gentle, despite your size. I know you remember Sebastian & Nicki, the kittens I rescued. They were only a week old and so tiny. You took care of them like they were your own. Licked them until they were sopping wet! They looked for you for a long time after you were taken from us. The pain of your death still feels fresh when I look at your picture or think about you for too long. I thought I would go insane the night you died. It was way too soon. We only got to be with you for 2 years. How unfair and cruel! The only consolation is knowing that those bad ole hips aren't hurting you where you are now. I love you, my Boo-Butt. Don't you worry, you will NEVER be forgotten!!!! You were, and still are, so loved! I hope you and Frisco are beyond the bridge running and playing, and waiting for me. I'll see you again one day. All my love forever and always...Mommy
