In fact, there are many dog quotations that are my favorites.
"My goal in life is to be the kind of person my dog thinks I am," is another.
Anyone who has read here for awhile has been introduced to Max, Junior, Bubba Boo Boo, B.J., Boo-Boo, June Bug, Ginger Boo, and Lola Cherry Cola.
Max was our Boxer-Pit Bull mix, and was one of the most gentle, loving dogs I had ever met. He was a rescue dog and lived to be almost 15 years old.
When we realized Max was declining quickly, we found Junior and Bubba. Max loved Bubba. But, since Max and Junior were both Alpha males, they just tolerated each other.
When Junior was 8 years old, he was diagnosed with lymphoma and we lost him just a few months later. In the meantime, June Bug (Junior's daughter) needed a home, so we took her in.
Bubba missed his brother, but June Bug did keep him company. Two years later, Bubba developed a brain tumor, and he went to the Rainbow Bridge to be with Max and Junior to chase rabbits and antagonize all the cats.
B.J. and Boo Boo are Junior and Bubba's boys respectively. (Puppysitter . . .s-h-h-h) They live across the street and come to visit quite often.
Enter . . . Ginger Boo and Lola Cherry Cola. Ginger was Bubba's daughter who needed a home, so we took her in. She had been living in Texas. Lola is our Walmart dog. She was about to go to the pound, so we took her in. Her owner had her on the curb at Walmart with a sign, and we just couldn't resist.
It is suggested that a family never have two female Boxers because most are Alpha Females. Most Boxer adoption facility won't place a female into a home that already has a female Boxer.
That brings us to this photo :
And then, to this photo :
Who says three female Boxers can't get along ?
Well, at least they can sleep together without fighting.
My take on this is that Lola is the buffer. She adds levity to any situation. Even though Ginger and June Bug aren't fond of each other, they just can't help but laugh with Lola Cherry Cola in the mix.
Kind of like three middle-school-aged girls. Two's company. Three's a crowd. There's always one in a group that everyone likes. In this case, that would be Lola.
