Today is July 4th. The nation is celebrating Independence Day, but this day is doubly special to us since it’s also BOBO’S BIRTHDAY! Not only is it Bo’s birthday, but today he is celebrating a huge milestone – he is 10 years old!
I adopted Bobo in 2001 when he was a year old from a shelter in Greensboro, NC. He has moved with me 7 times and has endured the adoption of his obnoxious sibling, Bean. Bobo was the man in my life before I even met Tim. He will forever remain the only pet I have ever had all on my own. All dogs before him were family pets, and any dog from this point forward will be our pet. Bobo used to be mine and mine alone, when I had no one else.
Bobo is in great shape, but he has slowed down over the years. He has some sore joints and a lot of white fur, but he’s still spunky when he gets excited and still fiercely protective and loyal to us. My hope is that Bean will keep him young and that he will live his remaining years as happy as a dog can possibly be.
A tribute to my Bobo: here are pictures of him (in order) from 2001 – today:
