*Interesting Facts about your animal(s): BOO IS FROM SCOTLAND AND WE BROUGHT HIM WITH US WHEN WE IMMIGRATED TO CANADA IN 2003. HE WAS FOUND ON THE FREEWAY AND TERRIFIED OF MEN, WALKING STICKS, ANYONE IN A BALL CAP AND ANY LOUD NOISE. WITH LOTS OF PATIENCE AND TLC BOO BECAME A WONDERFUL, HAPPY PUP AND I COULDNT IMAGINE MY LIFE WITHOUT HIM. HE SLEEPS ON MY FEET, CUDDLES ON THE COUCH LIKE A BABY AND LOVES TO SIT WITH HIS DAD WHEN HE’S DOING CARPENTRY PROJECTS (HE’S THE FOREMAN!) BOO RECOVERED FROM CANCER LAST YEAR AT THE AGE OF 14. VET WASNT SURE HE WANTED TO DO SURGERY UNTIL HE SAW BOO’S BLOOD WORK. BLOOD WORK WAS AWESOME AND BOO CAME OUT THE OTHER END JUST PERFECTLY.  WE ARE CLEO’S FOURTH OWNERS. MAINLY GIVEN UP DUE TO FAMILY HAVING BABIES ETC…SHE HAS A LONG WHIPPY TAIL BUT IS THE MOST LOVING SMART DOG EVER.  IT TOOK A LONG TIME FOR HER TO SHOW HER PERSONALITY, I THINK SHE WAS SCARED TO IN CASE WE GAVE HER UP. SHE’S FUNNY AND LOVING AND AWESOME. SHE WILL ALWAYS BE WITH US. WE LOVE HER SO MUCJ. CLEO IS CURRENTLY RECUPERATING FROM ACL SURGERY IN FEB. LONG LONG AND SLOW. BUT SHE’S AMAZING. SHE WENT FOR HER FIRST 2 BLOCK WALK YESTERDAY!

*Animal(s) Favorite Treat: BOO – CHEESE AND DENTASTIX AND CARROTS. CLEO – PEANUT BUTTER, CHEESE, TOAST AND DENTASTIX

*Animal(s) Favorite Trick: BOO GIVES ‘HIGH FIVE’ AND TALKS A LOT WHEN ASKED TO TELL AS STORY HE WILL…  ALSO, HIS KISSES ‘MUM AND DAD’ ON COMMAND. CLEO WILL DO A ROLLY-POLLY (SEE PHOTOS) ON COMMAND. I CAN GIVE HER ANYTHING AND TELL HER TO TAKE IT TO DAD…AND SHE WILL. FLASHLIGHTS, PLASTIC BOTTLES, SHOE, MILK CARTON ETC….SHE ALSO LIKES TO CARRY THE NEWSPAPER IF WE BUY FROM A LOCAL SHOP ON OUR WAY HOME FROM OUR WALK.

*Perspective on Adopting a Rescue: I WOULD NEVER DO IT ANY OTHER WAY.

*Favorite Quote: “in a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog”
