As an older dog, Joe is happy just to sleep in his bed (with the cat snuggled next to him). But as a youngster, he liked to run around … and run around … and run around. Boston owners know that the breed is full of energy. Kind of like the Energizer Bunny, including the hopping around and big ears.*
He still gets a little wind in the sails, if someone new comes to visit the house. And when I say “new,” I mean everyone else except for me. Including The Kid, if she ever travels outside her room
. This said event usually happens once per day, or maybe twice if she needs me to do something for her.
For Joe, it’s like the first time he’s ever met her.
In case you are wondering, that’s her on the other side of the leash. Joe is still relatively the same size as her, though, because she was almost as little as he was back then.
I couldn’t find a good picture in time, but he used to do a back flip whenever he caught a tennis ball. He unfortunately is too sausage-like to do that anymore, though.
What stories do you have about your puppy? (Send me a picture, and I will feature yours in a future newsletter!)
* Joe is missing the drum, though.
