Most of my friends know that I’ve been anxiously awaiting the newest addition to the family… BooBoo. He is the next in line of Beautiful German Shepherds that have been a special part of mine and Marty’s world. Most have heard the stories of Bear, one of the best dogs I’ve ever owned (possibly the best)! We lost him on Easter weekend last year and decided that we would devote at least one year to his protogee, Yogi. Yogi has proved to be a handful as he suffers from severe epilepsy and requires constant medication, not to mention “me.” I say that because he seems to have seizures more when I’m not here, even though it is blatantly obvious that he is Marty’s dog, a constant shadow of Marty’s once he walks through the door. ;)
Well, as life and seizures seemed to settle we got restless for a little one to become part of the family… and so I rang the breeder. Much to my surprise, and really testing theories of coincidence, she had a litter that had been born 2 days earlier, on the anniversary of Bear’s last day with us. I couldn’t believe it! If there are signs, surely this had to be one!
So, we waited for 8 weeks for the little one to grow and be old enough to leave his furry dog-mother…
Welcome BooBoo, little brother to Yogi and beautiful reminder of Bear… welcome to our family!
It’s so hard to believe how fast one falls in love… but I’m gone. ;)
