    I know all Bostons are different with health issues and life span, and when we got Casey at 7 weeks old she was considered the “runt of the litter” and they charged a bit less. She is the smartest dog I have ever seen…we taught her lots of tricks and she could grab a toy when you specifically named it. Casey is now 11 years old and is hard of hearing…for about a year, the ear cleaner worked, but now the vet suggests to put her under and dig in there to clean the ears, but I have read that… Read more »
    I am writing through days of tears, after just losing my 11 year old best friend Baxter. He was the absolute best dog a person could ask for. He was strong and healthy and happy, with an appetite for any food crumb he could find and an undying love for me, his mama!! I had noticed a decline in his body over the last several months and thought it was him just getting older. He lost no appetite or ability to go potty, everything seemed the same, just a bit slower. I took him to the vet 1 month ago… Read more »

    I’m so sorry for your loss I too lost my sweet boston just this past Sunday 1/21/18. She was 12 yrs 2 months. We just got the same clean bill of health as well, even was told she had a lot of life left in er, only to wake up to absolute quietness. My Tootie passed during the night. She was my baby I miss her so much. Please everyone cherish the time you have with your babies you never know when they’ll be called home. 😢

    So sorry for your loss. Our story is very similar with our 10 year old girl’s unexpected death on 7/25. This boston was the best dog we’ve ever, ever had. We miss her terribly and a day isn’t going by without tears. In the past, we’ve always been ready to ‘get another dog’, but this time it’s going to take a bit longer we think. She was so animated and special. Seeing it happen at home was also traumatic since there wasn’t really any time for goodbyes. Please know you’re not alone, and that others understand. Again, so sorry for… Read more »

    I too just lost my Ella – we rescued her at 2 years and had her for 10.5 She had a set of cluster seizures a month agi then recovered beautifully. I thought we were good to go – but last Thursday -it started at midnight and nothing they could do would stop them. I have gone through so many boxes of kleenex and can barely stand to come through my door because she is not there. She was so part of our family I miss her so very much.


    I have had my Boston for 13 years. We take him to the vet at least twice a year. He is in good shape but right at the top for his weight. No extra treats. Always outside access and plenty of water at his lea sure. He has daily walk visits with his neighborhood doggy friends. Also loves children of ALL. Ages. We play until he decides he is tired and still has all his teeth. I am thankful for my wonderful friend.
