That's Rosey on the right. Unlike usual roses who bud bloom and fall as rose petals to return to the earth, BTRNC's Rosey got a home, a new name, a new fur sibling and a wonderful life.

Quincy's first job was to teach her new brother Kennedy, that LADIES RULE. Once this important rule was learned by all, she and Kennedy have gotten along just fine!

Apparently, Quincy makes a great impression on everyone she meets in her new home town. Lots of people have offered Her Royal Highness as she is called another new home but her family says she is home with them thank you very much. Quincy however wants everyone to know there are plenty of other royalty on our available dogs page waiting for their castle.

Like most bostons, Quincy's favorite part of the day is meal time. She actually performs a dance at each meal to show her joy. After a good meal and evening play time, she and Kennedy are ready to spar for the most bed room, under the covers of course. Alas, this leaves little space for the humans but Quincy just knows that her people will find a way to squeeze in for cuddle time.

BTRNC says thank you for Kennedy and his people for welcoming this beautiful flower into their family. HRH wonders what took so long for her to have the life she deserves - but she's happy that it came late rather than never!

Parker is available for adoption. You will find his profile on the Our Dogs Page. An e-mail from his foster Mom prompted this blog to be written tonight.
She wrote that some nice people had asked to meet Parker. Parker loved the"Dad" but the couple did not feel that he would be a good match for their family. She further wrote that Parker had seemed down in the dumps since their meeting. We respect and applaud the family for making the decision that is best for them. The Boastful Boston now has this visual of poor Parker feeling rejected so it seemed important to allow readers to know more of this sweet little man.

Parker sometimes will "carry" his leg in the air when he runs. It doesn't slow him down and we suspect that he may have developed this habit from an old injury. Our vet has indicated no evidence of an ongoing problem. Parker is between 2 and 3, still very young for a boston but we don't have his past history.

Since coming into foster care, he is getting more confident each day and still retains a passive sweetness. His house training has come a long way as has his crate training. He has learned the crate is a happy place and will now go in on his own. He continues to prefer spending his nights in the bed or on the sofa but will nap in his crate.
Parker has also overcome a bout with pneumonia since being in his foster home. He has been through a lot lately. Maybe this is why he prefers snuggling to toys. That can be a nice thing for Moms and Dads too! His foster Mom brags about Parker's unconditional love for everyone he meets and now he seals it with a kiss. He is definitely not an alpha dog, he attaches easily and will make someone a wonderful companion. There has been no sign of aggression, only the sweetness.

Maybe Parker's forever family is reading this right now! Paws crossed!
