I don’t talk about my love of pets and animals all that often of this site, but I absolutely adore animals.
Having a dog as a pet has always been a dream of mine. I couldn’t have one as a child because of my and my brothers allergies, but now that I’m an adult I still long to have a pet dog.
I’m not sure that it will ever happen, but if I were to get a dog I think I might choose a Boston Terrier.
Why? Well for one, Chris is scared of big dogs. He probably won’t admit to that if you asked him, but trust me, he is. I know for a fact that he likes Boston Terriers though. A few of our friends have them, and one of the pet stores that we go to in order to get supplies for our turtles has an in house pet Boston Terrier. Chris always plays with these dogs. They are so cute too with their big eyes.
I want a pet dog bad enough that I’ve even gone so far as to look up the Boston Terrier breed in the Dog Guide. The guide has quite a bit of information about Boston terriers including health issues, skills, personality and their need for attention. Apparently these dogs have a strong need for companionship, are extremely intelligent and playful.
Well I definitely knew about the playful part. The Boston Terriers that a few of our friends have love nothing more than playing a game with their ball or chew toys.
My blogger friend Cynthia has a blog about her dogs and she occasionally writes articles about other dog breeds. She has an excellent Boston Terriers Dog Guide Article. I actually found The Dog Guide through her website when I was surfing the web.
If we ever do get a pet dog, a Boston Terrier perhaps, we’ll probably get a rescue. All of our other pets have been rescues.
Do any of you have a Boston Terrier? I’d love to hear about your experiences with them.
