In Loving MemoryIn Loving Memory

Spike is my sweet, sweet boy! He is a typical Boston Terrier who came to me in a very atypical way. My good friend found him wandering in a local park where he came bounding up to play. She tried to find his family but had no luck. Her boys fell in love so she got his shots and had the vet take some parts but he soon proved to be too much for her already doggy filled home. He would escape from her yard often and would walk down to the neighborhood AA meeting for Spanish speakers! NO KIDDING! She intended to turn him over to a BT rescue group but knew I had been searching for the perfect dog. Needless to say it was a match made in heaven. Spike is a true love bug and is always by my side. He has a funny personality and enjoys being the center of attention. When you meet Spike you love him. I have never heard so many different sounds from a dog, though. He slurps, snorts, glurps, gurgles, groans, moans, sighs, puffs, blows and when he is hot from playing sounds like a car muffler!! His snores shake the bed and his toots can make your eyes water. What he doesn't do is bark unless something is not right, like a new car parked on the side of the road where we take our daily walk or raccoons on the window sill. He loves, loves, loves his squeaky toys, stuffed animals and chew bones. I never had to tell him not to chew on something forbidden as he has always known what toys are his. He loves to go to the dog park and most of all he loves kids. Spike puts up with Levi very well and has stepped aside from being top dog to allow that for Levi. Having Levi has made me realize what an easy going little guy Spike really is. Levi has become the boss and Spike does not seem phased by this in any way only asserting his boundaries when the pestering has gone too far. He is so easy going that I need to offer him special Spike time or he gets left out completely! I have found that I need to assert the boundaries for him sometimes too which helps to keep me in charge as well over Levi. (Not an easy feat) Spike though is my velcro pup as he will follow me anywhere and never lets me out of his site. So much so that he can walk off leash in most circumstances. Spike was diagnosed with heart disease in October 2011 and lived with the assistance of meds until April 2012. Unfortunately the meds could only go so far and eventually I had to make the decision to stop his suffering. Levi and I miss him lots but know that he is happy in heaven.

Levi came to live with Spike and me in November 2008. He is a blue/brindle Boston with a tail about 6 inches long. So he is unique in color and markings. His little personality has filled my home with laughter. He loves toys and he especially adores his big brother Spike and they have become great friends. Spike and Levi spend lots of time wrestling and playing tug with a good old cuddly nap after each play session. Levi is learning fast already sitting and coming on command. He loves a good walk and wants to meet every person who walks by. I am enjoying the puppy phase very much as everything is new and exciting to him like grass, sticks and most recently the deer who come to our window everyday. Update on Levi: He is growing up very well in typical Boston style. He is beginning to mellow a bit but is still very much a puppy. He and Spike are best of buds but Levi has most definitely taken over the alpha dog position. So much so that I have to reassert my dominance daily with him in even the smallest of ways or he will take a mile!! He is also very energetic, athletic and has quick reflexes so I am thinking about agility training for him as a result. This combined with his sweet nature make him quite the little Boston although he is 20 pounds now and all lean muscle!! I have nicknamed "Circus Dog" because he is always walking on his hind legs especially on leash! It is quite the site!
