Bosco's weekend retreat

So Katie and I went to Toronto this past weekend (thurs-mon) and Bosco got to spend all that time at a doggy daycare here in Halifax. I am sure he had a lot of play time and sleep time. He loves vacations I am sure. I have to admit I enjoyed the break from walks etc but I did miss the big chocolate guy. I picked him up last night and I am sure he was hyper on the inside but he had no energy to even move haha. We went home and he went right for the chair pretty much and slept all night. Even now I took him for a walk and he did not seem that into it today. Good job doggy daycare of tiring out the dog I thought you could not tire out. Anyways here is a pic of him last night in the chair. Hope everything is well with everyone.

Chocolate news

Wednesday, April 12, 2006
Well it has been a few days since I have posted on the life that is Bosco so here is all the latest. I took Bosco down the street on Monday to see if he passed mustard on getting into a daycare. Katie and I are off to Toronto next weekend and the big Chocolate bar needs a place to stay. Good news, he passed and has been checked into the Canine Casbah next weekend. Lots of other dogs to play with and I am kind of hoping he sheds some pounds in all the playing haha. Mercy and Bosco teamed up yesterday to open up a bag of garbage and they found some chicken scraps! Bad animals! At least they worked as a team and not as mortal enemies like most of the day. The weather is getting better and that means more walks and runs for Bosco so he is happy about that. I am very pleased at how well Katie and Boss are getting along and how much they enjoy each other. anyways that is all for now, work is taking its toll on blog time so please be patient.

A day of firsts for Bosco

So today I finally got around to making Bosco an official Halifax resident! We went to the vet and got him his city tag and had a quick weigh in. Back up to 95 lbs but whatever because as I mentioned before those scales vary I believe. Tomorrow I could go in and he is 92 again. Anyways we got him registered with the city and now he is a member of the community! To celebrate we took a spontaneous walk instead of the usual park trip with the chuck it. I am sorry I did not have my camera but as I said it was not planned. I will being my camera next time on a much sunnier day. We walked around the Arm and back (see map) and found some water for Bosco to swim in. Yes he has now taken a dip in east coast water. He was very happy to chase sticks and think about going after some sea gulls. It was a long walk and now we are both home and tired and ready to have a lazy Thursday afternoon. I hope you are all doing the same.......the life of a dog is the way to go

a look back

Was looking through some old pics and thought I would share some. These are from Toronto Island two summers ago. Man Bosco loves the water!

Bosco in Amsterdam?

Tuesday, April 04, 2006
A fellow blogger posted a message today saying they came across the site and that they also had a chocolate. I took a look and their chocolate looks a lot like Bosco. So please give this site a look. It is called Brown Dog Sleeping and has some great pictures.

So how did Bosco do?

prediction- game 1: George Mason vs. Florida. Florida 75-62 actual- Florida 73-58 prediction-game 2: LSU vs. UCLA. LSU 67-61 actual- UCLA 59-45 prediction-Finals: LSU vs. Florida. LSU 74-70 (OT) actual- Florida 73-57 not great predicting on Bosco's behalf but that first game was pretty good. I think he needs to do more studying and research for next year.
