Arrival Story:
Hey! I'm a senior Bouvier des Flandres. My current family adopted me a few months ago and here's my story. My old family took pretty good care of me; I even learned obedience and heeling, although only on leash. However for some reason they neglected to give me a tattoo or locating chip. Eventually I ended up wandering the streets of southern Mexico City; a story I'd rather not tell, specially now that it's in the past. After a few weeks a kind veterinarian rescued me, which was good because life in the street is hard; my long coat was all matted, I was extremely skinny and malnourished and probably wouldn't have lasted long out there. However, the vet was unable to locate my family and couldn't keep me so she started trying to find someone to adopt me, which is hard considering I'm an older and pretty large dog; not what most dog owners are looking for. Fortunately, my new mom was visiting the vet and took a look at me, fell in love with me (I'm a charmer!) and decided they could help me by adopting me so here I am now! My new family includes two humans, and two dogs, Tallulah and Bela. Bela is older like me so she stays out of the way, but Tallulah is younger and quite a handful. My new owners treat me very well, when I arrived they fed me, made sure I was healthy, took me for a bath and a haircut since most of my hair was unsalvageable; luckily I've grown most of it back. I've adjusted really well to my new family and I'm really glad I found them; I'm thankful to them for taking me in when I was a starving and frightened stray dog, and taking care of me until I was healthy and happy again. In return I love them and protect them fiercely; but hey, who wouldn't protect a family like mine?

"Aullido" is spanish for "Howl". The name was inspired by Allen Ginsberg's poem "Howl". Howl is considered one of the defining works of the Beatnik generation. Aullido passed away unexpectedly December 14th, 2009. The void he leaves in our hearts will remain; We take comfort in knowing that we gave him a second home, and will forever cherish the love and gratitude he gave us in return.

Forums Motto:

A year

My dear boy, a year has past.

Life has not been easy without you by my side. Even the good parts have a dash of bitterness because you're not longer around.
You always showed me strength and sense of responsibility and how you need to care for your family, the ones you love.

I wish I could still hide my face in your wild hair when life gets too hard and I get too sad. Or walk by your side until the sun sets when is celebration time.

I have one regret and only one in my life: not fighting with teeth and all 4 paws to save your life, as I very well know you would have done to save mine. Please forgive me for trusting others instead of you.

You're forever in my heart which -now i know- will always hurt for you.


How to mend a broken heart?

Chamomile, Fireflies, Triple layer chocolate ice-cream, a run and a hike.
Been there, done that.
Nothing seems to help to ease the pain and fill the dark abyss I feel within.

I miss your morning stretch always followed by a lazy yawn. Your gaze searching for me and then, the stump-stump of your feet as you followed me.
Always following me.

I still hurt inside and long for your presence. I wish I could hold you once more and burry my face in your lovely fluffy coat. I wish I could whisper in your ear the love I feel and the happy I was for having you around. I wish we could still struggle with life together.

No other will be like you, now I know.
No matter the amount of time,
I still and always will be missing you.


The Fierce Guardian of My Heart

Determined, stubborn.
Always taking on life head first
A fierce beast by looks, such deceiving looks
but with a charm that melted hearts.

You were great amongst hunters,
as you managed to trap my heart
with just one look.

My fearless guardian:
Watch over me, be vigilant.
You took a huge chunk of my heart with you,
for now, it's yours to keep,
until we meet again and your presence
puts it back in its place.

Guard it as well as you once guarded me.
I love you
and I always will.
