Quick Bio:
-purebred

Birthday:
April 23rd 2000

Likes:
Punk rock music. A good belly rub. Just relaxing on the deck. Kisses. Squeaky toys. Mom. Walks.

Pet-Peeves:
Not being *the* center of attention. Hyper neighbor puppies (who happen to be larger than me) jumping all over me.

Favorite Toy:
Noisy squeaky hot dog. It has replaced the Daily Growl and Yellow Squeaky Bone, which have been chewed to smithereens.

Favorite Food:
Well, my *real* food is Science Diet small bites. But I really adore popcorn, tater tots, anything dropped from the dinner table.

Favorite Walk:
Quail Ridge Park is now my new favorite - lots to sniff there!!

Best Tricks:
I attack & pop soap bubbles with abandon, and I rock at playing fetch!

Arrival Story:
Bo was in a loving family, but the bulldog the family owned didn't love him so much. Bo and the bulldog would get into fights so violent, the owners couldn't bear it. They had to make the painful decision to give one away to a loving home, and they chose to give Bo away. So, I was blessed to have him given to me and I've spoiled him rotten ever since!

Bio:
I've heard that Boston Terriers are described as the "American Gentleman," and now I know firsthand just why. Bo has always been a perfect gentleman, despite the situation of being uprooted from his first family, and plopped right into a new home. I was really worried about how he would adjust to living in our family, but he has never looked back. He treats us like he's lived with us forever. He's very loving, cuddly, and loves to sleep with the boys, like a little guardian. He has absolutely stolen our hearts, and now we couldn't imagine life without him!

So I go to Petsmart with my Mom on Tuesday night, right? Well, she put this ridiculous costume on me that made me look like a dog skeleton. She then proceeded to call me "doggie bones" all night. Real funny.

Anyway, we get in there, and all these humans are cooing over me, saying how cute I am and everything (I know, right?). They put me up on this table, and took my picture! In that silly getup!! Oh brother.

There were other dogs there who looked even goofier than I did. One of them had on a feathery hat and looked oh-so-silly. I was glad not to be her. She looked pretty embarrassed as she passed by, wouldn't even look me in the eye!

Anyway, we all gathered into this big circle, and apparently, I won 2nd prize in the dog costume contest. This gets me a free grooming session. I've got to admit, that's pretty cool. I love getting cleaned up because it means Mom will cuddle up with me more.

Hope you all have a great Halloween, full of your favorite treats.

Snorts -n- Spooky Skeletons,
Bo

 

Down, boy, down!!

So it's been a while since I brought you all up to speed on my school experience.

I endured the first couple weeks of talking about housetraining. And crate training. Booooooring. Of course, I'm cool - no potty training needed for the Bo-man!

Then the next week, on to the "sit" command. No problem! I am quite seasoned in the art of "sit." What a time to show off my skills and snag a few treats in the process!

I finally hit a tough spot: The "down" command. Oh boy, that was a new one for me. Mom has been working with me all week to go from sitting to laying down. I know she got frustrated with me, but I couldn't help but lift my butt up off the floor when she started putting that treat down by my paws. I thought Mom was about to give up on me. I didn't want that to happen.

Last night, I finally got it! And I have to say - now that I figured it out, I am GOOD at it! I can't wait to show up those puppies tomorrow night.

Yep, I'm living proof that you can indeed teach an old dog new tricks.

Snorts -n- SO good at my new tricks,
Bo

 

Gettin' skooled!

I went to my first dog school class last week, and tonight is my second one. I was a little surprised to see that I was the ONLY 5 year old dog in a class full of annoying puppies! When I looked up at her with my big, buggy eyes, Mom said something about "socialization." Whatever. Those puppies didn't scare me. I was pretty relaxed by the end of class, and didn't even care that there were other dogs in the room with me. Hm, that'll show Mom!

Wonder what we're going to do tonight? I guess I'm kind of excited about class now - believe me, the treats were flowin'!

Snorts -n- Stoked on School,
Bo
