For those of you who follow my blog on a regular basis, I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear that I would most definately count this little bundle of white fluff as 'precious'
As I mentioned in a previous post, Boo isn't actually MINE per se.......in fact,had the decision been mine she would never have become part of the family!
Kirsty had plagued us about having a dog for as long as I can remember, and I always managed to use my excuse of being allergic to many breeds of dog to avoid the issue for many years.....until we moved to Spain, leaving her 'abandoned' in the UK (I hasten to add that she chose to be 'abandoned'). Within a couple of months she had persuaded her dad that she needed a dog for company....though to give her her due, she carried out some research into hypo-allergenic breeds hence the reason she chose a Bichon-Frise/Llhaso Apso cross.
Boo came into Kirsty's life in August of 2008...and Craig and I instantly fell in love with her too!
Just as well, given that six months later Kirsty's job changed and she just wasn't able to look after Boo the way she knew she needed to. After a very tearful phone call, when she thought I would say we would have to re-home Boo, Kirsty was delighted when I told her the solution was for the little ball of fluff to come and stay with us in Spain....and I didn't even once say 'I told you that I would end up looking after a dog'!
That was in March 2009, and I just can't imagine not having Boo with me now. When Kirsty decided to go to Barcelona to study, she thought it would be a good idea to take Boo with her...but I'm glad to say she listened when I reminded her that a student lifestyle wasn't really conducive to looking after a dog! She has always said that when she gets settled, she would have Boo back, but has come to the conclusion that this little bundle of fluff belongs with this mummy!
In saying all that, when she returned fro the dog-sitter this afternoon, she ran straight past me along to Kirsty's room just to check her real mummy wasn't back...then came back to say 'hello' to me!
