    What else would Bosco be but a Tootsie Roll? He's not crazy about it, but the kids in the neighborhood get a kick out of him.

    Posted 01/26/2012 10:26:52 EST

    Kar - love the Flabrador nickname! Bosco's a big boy - close to 90 lbs. - but he isn't fat at all (his vet says he's perfect, although I already knew that!) but if left to him, he'd certainly munch al more »

  • Forum Post: New Dog Owner- Does this sounds ok for a typical dog day?

    Posted 01/09/2012 05:02:31 EST

    Just because I don't crate Bosco doesn't mean he hasn't made a den for himself. His favorite place to lie (other than on top of me if I'm on the sofa!) is a chair where he can curl up and be cozy: So more »

    teacher - congrats on your new little furbaby. i'm sure you already can't remember life without her! let me echo those here who say that she will let you know how she wants to proceed and you have to more »

    Kinga - I'd love a review. Bosco has his weekly indoor playgroup at his groomers, but I'm always looking for a good indoor place to exercise him during the Winter. BTW, I'm off next week so hopefully more »

    So do I - I'd love for them to meet. Maybe next summer we can find a middle ground to get them together! more »

    Proof yet again that Gracie and Bosco were siblings in a past life (you'll understand the reference if you read "A Dog's Purpose" - if not, I highly recommend it to anyone who has loved a dog). It's u more »

    I swear by Grateful Dog Grooming on School Street in Watertown (not far from Arsenal Mall). Jess and Maureen treat Bosco as if he's their own and he loves his fluff and buff. They are the only ones he more »

  • Forum Post: Have you been to the vet this year?

    Posted 12/01/2011 03:15:55 EST

    Other than getting snipped, Bosco's been (knock on wood) very healthy. He's just had his annual physical with the accompanying shots and that runs about $125 a year. That's peanuts compared to the mon more »

    Posted 10/20/2011 09:21:01 EDT

    Kristi - welcome and let me add my 2 cents in agreeing with Kar that Labs are the best! One thing you'll find about this site - everyone loves their little furbabies and we're all biased for our breed more »

    Kinga - Glad to see you back ... hope your big day and week away was everything you hoped it would be. I love the photo of Stella and look forward to another long walk with her and Bosco. more »

    Kar - Bosco loves going to the beach - it's quite amusing to see him try to catch the small waves. I can't get over how patient Gracie is in posing for your photos. Bosco may be a month older, but Gra more »

    It's his second one - one will usually last a summer with a few duct tape fixes. He gets his swimming in at a local pond, but I use the pool in the backyard for a quick cool off after long summer walk more »

    These are such fun and I love the idea of continuing with all holiday threads. This might not seem like a Fall photo, but it's the official end of summer with the retiring of the Bosco pool until next more »

    Oh, Kar - Gracie's such a beauty. No amount of bribes will get Bosco to sit still and pose. This was his Halloween costume last year - not sure what I'll get him to stand for this year. He's not big o more »

    When I saw the news piece on Hawkeye, I thought of Hachi right away. Hallmark did a TV movie about Hachi a couple of years ago with Richard Gere and Diane Lane - it still comes on every now and then s more »

    Wow, I thought it might be pricey, but not quite that much. Good luck with the recovery - do any friends have an in-ground pool you could grab a half-hour in with her? more »

    Hi Kar - I know there is a FlowDog in Waltham MA where I live that does water therapy for dogs but I found this website which has a listing of places that does canine water therapy. Hopefully one is a more »

    Yep - all fours. It was just once. I never yell at him, just try to talk firmly and repeat commands to teach him but that day he scared me so much that I really did let loose on him. I think it scared more »

    Yoga, that's too funny about the water. I have to lock the bathroom door in the mornings - I learned that lesson after Bosco crashed through the shower curtain and into the tub while I was taking a sh more »

    What won't Bosco eat? If sharks are the perfect eating machine, then Labs must be a close second! Any type of people food goes without saying, but Bosco knows the sound of my home office door. I keep more »

    The antlers are Bosco's absolute favorite - I've been recommending them since I discovered them and have bought them for quite a few of his doggie pals who have loved them as well. If you are in the W more »
