Bosco on the town

Tuesday, May 30, 2006
Just got back from going on a nice, long dog walk since the weather in Halifax today is amazing. We made our destination the water so Bosco could go for a dip. Of course there was a duck that he had to try and make friends with. First stop was the vet to pick up his drops to fight off all those nasty things a dog can get in the summer. They are good for him but not for the wallet! Check out the pictures of the day of the dog!

Almost there!

MARCH 20: Bosco weighed in at 99lbs. MARCH 29: Bosco weighed in at 92lbs. APRIL 25: Bosco weighed in at 90lbs. MAY 4: Bosco weighed in at 90lbs. (although the scale flirted with 89)keep up the good work Bosco! MAY 19: Bosco weighed 91.8 lbs. Ok it is going the wrong way but still it is not bad! MAY30: Bosco weighed 88.2 lbs! Way to go Bosco, only 3 more to go. The vet would like to see him at 85 lbs.

How has Bosco been you ask?

Sunday, May 28, 2006
Hi everyone, it has been a few days since I last blogged, with work and the nice weather I have not been at the computer a lot. Here is what is in the Bosco news. The backyard is once again a hot spot with Chocolate labs. Bosco likes to lay out there and chill as much as he can. He likes to hang out with local logs and balls and enjoy tasty grass and other things he should not eat. If your dog is like Bosco that backyard is where its at! Not to worry Bosco still likes laying around the house too. Today we went to the Commons for some chuck it action. That plum tuckered out the big boy. He is passed out somewhere in the house as we speak. Here are a bunch of pics of the one and only Bosco. I hope you are all having a super Sunday and thanks again for all the great comments.

Chewy day for B

Bosco had a pretty good Saturday yesterday. The weather was great so we went for a long walk with the chuck it. Throw after throw, Bosco kept running the ball down and coming back. He certainly got tired out for that. After we got home that meant long nap time. Katie and I were out grocery shopping and I picked him up a chewy bone that would certainly make him happy.After giving it too him of course he has it gone in about two hours but oh well he was happy.

He got to hang out a lot in the back yard and chew on his log too.

After a long day in the sun, what better way to end the day with a nap on the couch.

Being a Bosco is sure rough.

Bosco in the news

Saturday, May 20, 2006
Well he is not actually in the news but I figured I should get some recent news up about what the chocolate guy is up to. The Chair: As you may of seen from various pictures we have this huge chair in our living room that Bosco loves to sleep in. Before I moved in that was pretty much Mercy's chair to sleep in. Recently Mercy has started to take back what is his and it is creating some comedy. Both of the guys now want to sleep in the chair and it is almost like they race for it. Last night Mercy was sleeping in it and Bosco kept looking and waiting and trying to think of a way to get in that chair! Finally he tried to get up in the chair as Mercy slept. He stood there, turning, trying to fit his large body in but could not. Mercy was not budging either. Very funny! Finally Bosco settled for the floor until later on when Mercy got up. Tree Hugger: I do not know how it got there but there was this very large log out front of our house and yesterday Bosco noticed it. He of course had to go and get it and drag it to the backyard like he was dragging some person down the driveway. It is now his favorite thing to do, go to the backyard and chew on it. Now only if he could carve something useful out of it.

We went for a long spring walk yesterday and Bosco got in some swimming time. He wanted to jump over the wall as you will see in the pics due to being so excited for going swimming. Here are some shots of the walk. Hope everyone is having a great day and thanks for all the feedback, emails and for those I have swapped links with. It is cool how this community keeps growing and growing. Katie driving the B-Train I will jump if you let me Such a poser Happy as can be, fetching a ball in the water

Chocolate feedback

Check out the write up one of the fans of the Chocolate Dog Blog put on her site. Now – where to begin? With a dog, I think. But not just any dog – this is a chocolate dog (here we are back at food again!). A chocolate lab, to be exact. Bosco. Bosco lives in Nova Scotia, and has his own cat – a recent addition, as Bosco’s owner moved in with the cat’s person and – voila! Blended family. The Chocolate Dog Blog chronicles Bosco’s every move. There’s the Bosco Weight Loss Challenge (evidently the vet thought Bosco was enjoying a little too much of the good life!). There’s ‘Dear Bosco’ where you can ask him anything you like (needless to say he’s much better at critter questions) and my particular favorite – Desperate Housepets; wherein Bosco moves from Toronto to Halifax and discovers Mercy – a cat not easily moved by Bosco’s winning personality. Desperate Housepets chronicles the evolution of that relationship – with all its ups and downs. All in all, The Chocolate Dog Blog is fun, amusing and a great place to escape when you need a break. I highly recommend the visit. Thanks so much, glad to know the site is entertaining people. please go visit The Fat Lady Sings for more entertaining posts.

Bosco and his Booda

Hi everyone, so sorry for the lack of Bosco news this week. With work and such I have not had a lot of blog time. Wanted to report on a new toy in Bosco's mix of play things. Last night at Walmart we picked him up a Booda. It is a fat cow with a long neck that makes a deep mooing noise when you squeeze it. Of course Bosco loves it ahd has been taking it with him every where he goes. This morning I even told him to go get his booda and he came back with the silly cow in his mouth. Other than that things have been pretty normal in the Bosco world. Playing with kids in the park, stealing balls from other dogs and of course sleeping a lot. I am going to get him weighed in at some point this week because I am thinking he is looking pretty trim. Maybe a few more pounds lost? We will see. Hope everyone and their dogs are doing well out there.
