Or should I say Bo’s nose?
No, not related to this cultural tagpoint.
But today IS National Puppy Day. And it’s hard to celebrate such day without an actual puppy.
Luckily, we’re good on that count!
As of last Friday, we’re the proud owners of a 7 week old puppy. He’s part Poodle, part Wheaten Terrier and part Sheepdog.
And he goes by the name Bojangles Hawthorne.
It’s a long story where Bojangles comes from, but it’s not the chicken restaurant found in the South.
Could also stand for BoBo or Bocephus, too, I guess. But, formally, it’s Bojangles.
Hawthorne just popped into my head. It seems to fit.
We call him Bo for short.
Pitch black, fuzzy, sharp little teeth, big paws.
After years of our household being on autopilot (for the most part), it’s like having a baby again.
Teaching. Training. Housebreaking.
Getting our older dog, Roxie, to appreciate and understand him.
It’s been awhile since we’ve had a puppy in the house (over 10 years) but it’s all coming back to us.
And now that the weather is getting nicer, hopefully we’ll be able to spend a lot of time outside with him. He seems, so far, to like being outside.
I promise not to inundate you with too many puppy photos though.
Because Bo knows you wouldn’t appreciate that.
