Bozo appeared unannounced on our doorstep on a very hot August day in 2006. He was a small puppy, very timid, and peed every time we tried to pet him. Bozo was wearing a collar (without a tag), so we were sure that he belonged to someone in the near vicinity. We placed ads in the newspaper, at the local shelter, and even on the radio, and kept him in the front yard for weeks in the hope of reuniting him with his family. No one ever came for him. Eventually, after it became apparent that no one was looking for him, we tried to find a home for Bozo. Efforts to place him with friends at work failed. Unable to bear the thought of turning him over to the shelter, we formally proclaimed Bozo part of the family. It's hard to imagine life without him.
Bozo experienced an injury to his right shoulder after a fall. He limped severely for several months, and lost a great deal of muscle mass and function in his right front leg. Bozo has recuperated well following steroid treatment and the introduction of a brother to play with (Herschel the Beagle) and now enjoys nearly normal function. He sometimes shows a slight limp.
As of January 2008, Bozo has relocated and become a Canadian citizen!
