Mastiffs have rules, they lay anywhere or on any furniture they choose. They are not hunters or gatherers. But Bo was special as he truly loved adventure even if it meant going for a walk to track a deer or to gather wild mushrooms with his best buddy. Bo’s rules included loving his family members unconditionally. Bo was friendly but a noble guardian of his house, friends and family. He would greet all visitors with stance and slobber, and then kindly let them in to our home. Bo earned the nickname “Bubbs” as his antics kept us on our toes. We had to make sure that the refrigerator door was locked at all times or else Bo would enjoy a snack or our dinner. We were never alone. When you sat down, he sat next to you (sometimes on top of you); bedtime was his favorite time to be by your side as he conquered the bed for the night. He was my “sunshine even when skies were grey.” He always made us laugh, and was a devoted friend and true companion.
Bo, your STAR will always shine in our hearts forever (July 2009 – April 2020).
