I’ve mentioned my predecessor, BoBo, in a couple of posts. Here he is. I thought you might like to meet him.
Here he is in his bed. We all love beds don’t we? You’d have to have read my last post to fully appreciate this.
Anyway, he was Their first experience with Scotties. And, of course, They’ve been hooked ever since. They actually went to buy a Westie, but found this little thing about four months old in a crate stacked on top of other crates (She peeked through a door opening to see this) in a garage outside of town. The seller wouldn’t show Them where the dogs were kept and was very secretive about everything. As it turns out, BoBo, as he became known, had a malnourished mother. And Lord knows what else happened to him.
So, he came to live with Them and They were thrilled. On the way home from getting him, They stopped off at a Chinese place to pick up dinner (it was a Sunday night) so They could spend the whole night with him instead of going out, which They usually do on the weekends.
Now here’s the funny part. It was about a half hour’s drive from picking him up and picking up dinner. BoBo started to squirm around on Her lap. Looking up at Her. Shifting from leg to leg. She hadn’t had a dog in a long time. He hadn’t either and was busy driving, so, well, They didn’t think much of it. Big mistake.
He parked the car. Well, don’t you know when He came back from picking up dinner, little precious BoBo had relieved himself on Her lap. A nice curled up… well…how shall I say it ?… a curled up smelly brown thing. Right on Her leg. What a hoot! (I’m sure it wasn’t that funny, but I think it’s pretty humorous. Don’t you?)
And that, my friends, was the beginning of life with BoBo.
What You Learned Today:
- A dog tries so hard to send cues. Hunger, fear, danger, and “I gotta go.” Heed these cues or you’ll find yourself like She did. With a smelly brown thing on your lap.
- Some of us are vocal. Some of us aren’t. Pay attention and you’ll soon figure out what we’re trying to say.
