Most likely last post about Boza…

In the last few months Boza almost died a hundred times. He finally gave up, but he really never suffered, not in a bad way. Physically Boza was still in very good shape. He just suffered from a tumor in the brain and it took his life finally after almost twelve years… It ended up that it was a tumor…

Thank You: Nice E-mails about Boza…

We want to thank those who sent RIP E-mails to Boza and we even got several pictures of their animals they share their home with. One in particular made me smile. Cats and computers are an interesting combination… I personally had a rough day yesterday….but this morning, I feel better. The shock of his passing has tempered and I, after…

Boza taught us about life…

Boza had four good walks yesterday, he had eaten three times and he pranced and danced on his last day on earth… For six months I knew what Sveta, who has only had one doggy in her life, would come and come sooner than we want it to. I warned her, but she never understood, until yesterday what I was…

Boza Passed Away! Rest In Peace good buddy…

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm…

Boza has had really good days lately…

Sometimes I feel like a “Seeing Eye Human”… No not a seeing eye dog, but a human. I guide Boza around and allow him to have a life, a life as free from danger as possible. Life has become a series of commands. Up, down, right, left, stay, stop, no, hold on and many others. Boza has a harness and…

Amazing to watch Boza…

Boza is blind as many of the readers of WtR know. But I do not talk about too much how he has adjusted to blindness… It is amazing to watch him… Dogs have fantastic hearing and smell in the first place, but the levels that Boza has obtained is (again) amazing. He can hear a car over a kilometer away…

Boza had a rough day yesterday, lets have coffee…

Got his eyes under control this morning, but yesterday, we spent all day dealing with eye issues… I can say weather is a major factor in his eye pressure and as the weather changes, his eyes respond and not in a good way… My ribs are mending and I can now just start taking a medium deep breath. It got…

Boza and I are staying another one to two weeks…

Boza and I call the Tiny Russian Village home for a few more weeks… We have to get Sammy the Volga in the shop for one last item to be done. The rear end is being replaced. I messed up and destroyed the rear end and it is howling to beat the band. The rear seal went out on the…
