Family Photos

Several years ago, 
we lost all three of our Boston Bull Terriers within a month.
It was the saddest time for us.
The last one died the day before they figured out
that the dog food we'd been giving them was poison.
Our hearts were broken. 

Coming home after being gone all week working was difficult.
There was no one to greet me.
So we searched and found our sweet Newton.

Isn't he a doll?
Caring friends who knew of our unfortunate loss
also wanted to help.
We were okay with one baby,
but then this one came to our attention:

Meet Chelsea

We call her a Bo-Chi
Her family couldn't find a home for her. 
All the chihuahua looking puppies found homes
but this one that looked more like a Boston was left.
Well, we couldn't have that.
So she came home with us.

My daughter decided she wanted a dog for companionship.

This is Autumn.
She's a rescue and so lovely.
I can't explain it, but we have a unique bond.
Love, love, love her.
I am so fortunate that right now she is on an extended stay with us.

Of course, you can never have too many furries, right?
So my son adopted Jiggs

 He's an older fellow, with the best disposition.
He needed a home where he could have more attention.
He picked well. 

So there you have it,
my family.
Aren't they just too cute?


  1. Awwwwwwwwwwwwww I am saddened that the food was killing your previous babies!!! But I am loving the newest members of your family! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. Oh gosh, I'm so sorry about your 3 Bostons! My parents had Bostons before I was born and they loved them! And one of my publishers has 3 Bostons, 2 of which are rescues.

    Dogs are such great companions, and those cuties who have found their way into your home and heart are clearly very lucky!

  3. Too cute for their own good! I love the happy animal home you have created! My parents have lost their chocolate lab boy to lymphoma. He is missed dearly. My mom is ready for another dog to help her pain heal. My dad is not. So, they enjoy the company, for now, of my little Olive (Frenchie), and my sister's Boston, Zoe. Grandpuppies are the tops! :)

  4. Yes! They are all adorable. What a lovely family. How wonderful of you to make a home for them all. Look forward to more pics!


Thank you for stopping by. I treasure each and every word, so please leave one or two.
