The Life of a Gypsy Part II

In early September, we shared a special blog about a dog named Gypsy who is close to our hearts. Gypsy's life and health has been a roller coaster from the very beginning. You can read Gypsy's story at The Life of a Gypsy Part I.

Today, we share with you a Happy Ending story that rivals all others. Below is a message we received from Gypsy's adoptive parents.

When I was a Humane Officer, my advice to people who just had a beloved pet die for one reason or another, was to get another pet, as this helped the grieving process. When we lost our beloved Hillary, we were both devestated, but I was determined to find another Boston as soon as possible. Checking several Boston Terrier rescue sites on the web, I came across BTRNC. Posted on the site and available for adopton was a picture of GYPSY. When I saw that sweet little face, I could already tell this was one very special and very sweet little Boston girl. Luckily for us, our application was processed without due, and we were informed that we could adopt Gypsy, if we still wanted her. There was no doubt that this was the one we wanted.

Gypsy came home with us on August 30th and it has been "Happy Endings", ever since.
When she got here she was the sweet and meek little girl. Never had we met a dog with such a loving heart. Over time she has lost her meekness, but never her sweet and loving heart. It has been such a joy to watch her personality blossom and come into her own. Everyone that has met her wants to take her home with them. We took her to Ohio in October to meet her big Sister and her children, both 2 legged and 4 legged, and she was an instant hit.

Gypsy has slept in our bed since that first night and now she thinks she owns it. She has the most curious habit of shoving her head under my pillow and sleeping that way. At first her brother, Charlie the Chihuahua, just tolerated having her around and knew that she was not his former sissy, but over time he has accepted her and they get along great.

Gypsy, is one awesome Boston and we can't get over how fortunate we were to find BTRNC, and the fact that she was available for adoption. Never will we be able to thank you enough.

And they lived happily ever after.

You are very lucky to have Gypsy. We adopted Maximilian at the end of August but had requested Gypsy for our home. Seeing as how we have a small chidd we didn't know how she would do with him. She is such a beautiful girl. I am so glad that she has a forever home with you.
