Precious Pup of the Day for April 25th

Name: Rocky
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Male Breed: Boston Terrier
Home: St-Jerome, Quebec, Canada
Rocky is a Boston Terrier dog that is owned by Daniel. Like a typical Boston Terrier breed, he is friendly, alert, expressive and playful. He generally doesn’t bark except when necessary. He really likes to play with the balls and toys. He really enjoys going at the park to run fast, to expend energy and to play with balls. Every time we come home from work or anywhere, he is really happy to see us and wants to play.We think he is a very cute black and white Boston Terrier. He really likes to stay with his owners to play and he also likes to play with everyone, even with the cats. He is friendly with all other dogs, too. He likes to go for a walk and explore everything. He loves to go for car rides and going to the drive-in for watching movies. We really love Rocky and he is like our baby. He even inspired us to create a website for Boston Terriers!He is our first Boston Terrier and the first dog we have had. We decided to get him because we were interested in having a dog. We had seen some video and pictures of Boston Terriers and we thought that they were really beautiful and fun dog so we started learning more about the breed. We discovered that we found the perfect dog breed for us. The tricks he have learned so far are to sit, lay down and shake each paw. For his favorite games he likes to play, he likes to play baseball with us. He also likes to fetch sticks and he really likes to chew them. He also like to come camping with us and going for a canoe rides.

Because there is a cold winter season in Quebec, Canada and the Bostons don’t have long fur, we found it is a good thing to protect him from the cold weather by getting him a leather jacket and some hoodies. He fares well in the cold weather, but when it’s too cold he prefer going back inside where it’s warm. He doesn’t like spending too much time outside when it’s cold, but like us he likes the snow and everything else about winter.

Oh, What A Mug! Doggie of the Day for March 9th

Léo, the Dog of the Day
Name: Léo
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male Breed: English Bulldog mix
Home: Québec, Canada
We got Léo a year ago; his previous family did not want him anymore as they didn’t have time for him. Poor Léo was tied all day long in the house and was described as too excited …

But since then, he has made our family life even better than it was. What makes Léo so special? First, the special bond between him and the children. Right away he started sleeping with my five-year-old son and every morning they cuddle each other before waking up. He was there when the now 18-year-old was feeling sad and needed a nonjudgmental presence: they became really attached to each other. We could say he tamed our eight-year-old daughter into loving dogs … and many of our children’s friends since then. There is just something special about him and children; first, his unique features makes them laugh so much! Even after one year, we laugh at the faces he makes, the sounds he does, and his little routine (every morning his finds his ray of sun, sit on his bottom, close a bit his eyes and enjoy the sun for at least half an hour!).

Léo is not good at doing tricks, he does not come all the time when we call him, but he is special because he made our family complete. He has given us memories the children (and we) will cherish all their lives. He gave us much more than what we expected; 100% pure love, a true confidant, a constant presence and filled our house with even more laughter!
