by Bosco's Mom
(New Jersey)

We adopted Bosco about 2 years ago and he is a character to say the least! He is very demanding. He wants what he wants when he wants it! To let us know he wants something he walks over to us and barks repeatedly till he gets it. If he doesn't get it, he will take his big fat paw and scratch us. He is sort of a bully.

We have another dog, a lab pitbull mix, and they llooooooove to wrestle. He is so smart! Bosco will stay low and bite at my other dogs feet.

We also have a cat. The 2 of them have a very weird relationship. She constantly rubs herself on him and he lets her. They sleep together, rub noses and even play tag. She will run up to him out of nowhere and smack him on the nose with her paw. He then chases her and shoves her with his nose and runs away. She chases him and this goes on and on for at least 30 minutes.

He loves to be up on the couch and bed with us and if we leave the room for too long he will bark until we return. When we return he gives us the cold shoulder to show us he is mad. You would think he would just jump off the bed or couch and come to us, but no; he will never give up his spot on the soft, comfy couch or bed. We can't even get him off to make room for ourselves. He always has us cracking up and I can't tell if he thinks we are laughing at him or with him but I do know he loves us and we love love love him!

How cool!

Sophia... I LOVE watching The Dog Whisperer! I'd like to see that episode. Glad to hear that your dad and Sadie Jane are now friends. Cesar Millan is amazing. It must have been so much fun to meet him.

Bosco is quite a character...

It sounds like all of your pets have lots of fun together.

SO funny... When my Basset Hound gets mad, he gives the cold shoulder too. For example if my husband goes away on a business trip for a few nights, Hunter gets mad at him. We can tell because when my husband gets home, Hunter completely ignores him (the cold shoulder) instead of running up to him and greeting him. Even if my husband calls him over, he ignores as if he can't hear. It takes him a while to get over it. Eventually when he does, he rolls over for a belly rub as if nothing was ever wrong.

Thanks for sharing.
