Boba was rescued from a bad situation. She was brought into the rescue matted, emaciated, heart worm positive and full of intestinal worms.
She has been in boarding for while. We treated her for heartworms and shaved the matts off of her body, she looks pretty rough, but just needs a loving home where she can build some confidence.
Don't you want a special companion? She deserves to be loved.
Hello! We have had Boba one week. In that time she has started to show her personality. While she follows both my daughter Christina and I around, she appears to be claiming Chris as her human. We have two household pets - Petey (10# dog) and Munchie (13# cat). While Petey and Boba "get along" - Muchie teases her - which gets Boba barking. Boba does stop barking when told "no". She does not seek the cat out.
Boba sleeps through the night with one of her human's in the room and she is house broken. When Boba is outside she explores the backyard. There has been no digging in the yard. She does not stay in the backyard for long because it is to warm for her. (She is quite the fluffy dog!)
Boba enjoys being brushed and her back end scratched. She does very well in the house. Her biggest challenge are the stairs which are wood tread. Going up she is very careful, coming down she is much faster.
We had a friend over this weekend. Boba did well. Once the introduction was made, Boba found another human willing to scratch her and give her attention which she was fine with.

Week 2 with Boba! Goodness, Boba is quite mellow! She spends the day with Christina, who works from home. She comes down stairs at breaks and lunch. Once in a while she comes down just to see what Petey and I are doing. We haven't been able to go out walking with her yet as it is still to hot. Christina works at brushing her out, but she is not amused with it. One or two passes, she is back out in the yard. We are looking to have her groomed this week. At this point - the family has nick named her the "floufinator" or "flouffy". No it is not "Fluffy" LOL. She is a very kind dog, who would really like to make friends with the cat. LOL - the cat still prefers to tease. We have had repairmen at the door and while she barks to let us know there is someone at the door, she wants to be petted by them. Another good week!

WEEK 3 with Boba
Grooming of Boba has taken place! She looks fabulous. The groomer gave her two lavender bows, LOL. (See Pictures) We believe with daily brushing we can keep her beautiful and comfortable. Boba remains attached to my daughter and follows her every where. We have started working on leaving her - so she gets used to us coming and going. So far so good! Boba has started showing us her playfulness. She is curious - LOL - keep your purse closed! (See pixs) There is something that smells really good at the bottom of the purse - LOL. The cat still teases Boba - but she is able to ignore it, sometimes!

WEEK 4 with Boba
CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP - Boba enjoying her ice cube! She enjoys an ice cube when we are outside on the patio! We have discovered she is not thrilled with thunder, however, as long as a human is close by she won't bark. My daughter is good about grooming Boba - but Boba will tell her to "talk to the tail" and walk / run away. LOL Boba is a couch potatoe... She sits with my daughter all day while at work. We have decided she is a cuddle bug. She likes having contact with her humans and wants to be a part of any conversation.

WEEK 5 with Boba
We are in a routine with Boba. She really likes my daughter's work schedule! She knows when she gets a treat, eats her two meals a day, and goes outside. She still sleeps next to or watches my daughter while she works. We have also been out of the house a couple of times - running errands. Although she tries to go out the door with us, she does well while we are gone. She is nosy however, we know to put things up. We saw her gallop this week in the back yard. This is a first, normally it is walking around the yard. Each week brings a little more of her personality out. She would be (and is) a great companion.
WEEK 6 with Boba
Really a quiet week with Boba. You see she stays cool in her human's office/bedroom. If she isn't in front of the fan, she will lay on the cool tile in the bathroom. LOL - she knows what to do! We took a couple of trips, out of the house and she did well. She is more comfortable with our coming and going. LOL - it doesn't mean she tries to come with us - she is at the ready at the garage door! She is a great companion.
WEEK 7 with Boba
Boba has her Holloween costume! She sparkles in her dragon suit. LOL - she really does not want to show her face. "Hey, human I look silly!" We had a new event with Boba - she has started sleeping in my room at night. I now have Petey and Munchie - all snoring away! We think my room is cooler. You will LOVE Boba as a companion. She is so sweet and would be a wonderful companion!
WEEK 8 with Boba
Tomorrow is a visit to the vet to have her dental work done and nails clipped. Our ice maker has been replaced and sounds like someone knocking at the door when it empties. SO you guessed it, the dogs bark at the sound! LOL ... No new photos or video this week. Boba started playing fetch with my daughter. She is a big tease however, she doesn't turn the toy over without making Chris work for it! Who knew!
