My Boo

Look at that face! Who couldn't love that? Well, evidently several families. You ever have a dog that has touched you in a special way? I think they all do, but this guy is special. He had been returned not just once, not twice, but three times! The first and second time were legitimate. Well, as much as they can be. His owner was single and had been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. She just couldn't care for him. The second time, the dad in the family became ill and los this job. They had children to raise, so they opted to give up Bluto. They were devastated. But the third time, ugh, they just didn't have time for him.
Bluto had been at my house many times during his life with the third family. I dog sat for him while they were away on vacations and one time when we had a horrible ice storm and most of us were without power. So when they said, come get him, now...he came to my house. I wanted to keep him so bad, but it just wasn't in the cards. He developed a problem where his toes kept dislocating. After much consideration, we just fostered him for a while. Bluto got adopted and is now living with a lady and he is the center of all of her attention.
Buddy and I will be attending a meet & greet in Owensboro this Saturday and I jokingly said I would love to see him. Well, low and behold, the person running the greet has him at her house!!! WHAT? I must put my hands on this boy and give him some lovin'. His new owner broke her wrist, so he is on vacation at a friend's house. To say this is the highlight of my week would be an understatement. I absolutely cannot wait to see him. To see if he remembers me. I know I will probably be a blubbering mess, but look out Bluto, here I come!!!


  1. Of course he will remember you!

    We had a foster here, Missy, and she was a little pistol. She and her brother were adopted together by a couple who couldn't handle them and returned her. She was an angel at my house, but everywhere else, she was known as a wild child. We went to the reunion that year and she darned near knocked me down, she was that excited to see me!

    I hope Bluto is that glad to see you, but doesn't knock you down!

  2. How lovely to have a chance at a reunion. I'm sure he'll be thrilled to see you again. ♥

  3. Love those eyes! Can't keep my own off of them. Don't worry he will remember. They always remember love.

  4. Hi! We just started our own blog recently, and we're going around trying to meet other bloggy pets. Thats a sad story about all of the families who had to give Bluto back. We are sure he'll remember you when he sees you, though!

  5. He's really good looking. Love those eyes!

  6. What a gorgeous dog! I'm glad you're going to see him, and I hope and pray that the new owner doesn't give him up, too. He needs his forever home.
