The Boon is Back!

It's been a while, dog.  When we lost our Kudzu a couple of years ago, it kind of zapped our creative writing abilities.  So much has changed since then; so I've decided to make a come-back!

Do you remember me?  Boondocks?  I was a gift to mom for Mother's Day a few years ago.  I live with her, Dad, four human children, three cats, four other Golden Retrievers, a dog with a heart of gold but not quite a golden retriever, and a Sheltie named Ace.  We live at The Love Shack.  

Here's a picture of us from way back then:

The little one in the wagon?  Yep, that's me then.
And here's part of the family now:
See the big one in the middle.  Yep, that's me now!
Along with Scarlet, Cosmo, and Rose Bud (pictured in top photo) we have added to the pack  - Angel (my annoying lil sister), Krypto (a rescue pup we bottled raised), and now Ace (the Sheltie).  

I have lots, lots more to share, but for today, I just wanted wanted to say "hi".  I hope all my doggie friends are still around.  I look forward to getting to sniff you all soon!!

My, my!  How time flies when you're having fun!

Yep, my beautiful Boonie boy turns three today.

I remember the rapid snowball effect that took place on the day we brought him home like it was yesterday.  I leashed up my sons dog to go for a walk when my son stopped me to inform me that Cosmo was his and to be walked by him only.  (He was eight at the time.  I let the sass slide.)  So it was made known to me that I needed a dog of my own.  

I wouldn't settle for just any dog though.  Naturally I had to have a Golden Retriever, but I really wanted a light, light, light cream colored one.  I quickly googled Golden Retrievers not really expecting to find anything, but lo and behold, it was a Golden Miracle.

No, seriously!  Golden Miracles had one precious, creamy, bundle of perfection left.  We left the house within a half hour of the time my google search began.  Two hours later, he was all mine.

And three years later... he would quickly tell you that I am all his.  Boondocks is very possessive of his mommy.  If I hug a child, he slips between us and nudges them away.  If one of our other dogs attempt to come near me, they are met with a growl.  He stops when scolded but still makes his contempt well known.  And how dare the cat lay in my lap.  She is nosed off until she slaps him silly and brings him back down to earth.

He will test soon for TDI.  In the meantime, he brings me all the personal therapy I could ever need.  I love my Boondocks!!!    Happy Birthday, Good Boy!!
