Bobik the Wonder Dog Update!

So, we just got an e-mail update on Bobik (Bobo) the Wonder Dog. He was our beloved doggie that we gave up when we moved to Japan. Luckily, he went back with his original owner. So, Czech Girl told us that Bobik is now suffering from panic attacks, well that's what the vet said. She said that Bobik gets weirded out and then will pace from room to room panting heavily. He is really old now, probably 18 years old in people years and 130 in dog years. We are sad to hear his mental state is declining. She also mentioned that Bobik is suffering from allergies again and requires $25 conditioner. Poor old guy!

We miss him so much. Every time I walk into our apartment, there is no one to greet me. And, when I'm home alone...I'm really alone. I don't have anyone to pet or chase around or talk to, other than my fish...which are pretty useless. Every time we go to the grocery store, Jude wants to buy some doggie food or treats for Pilah (Felix) and Bobo (Bobik), and send it to them in the mail. He, too, misses his pups.

Life is much quieter and calm without the pups, and I don't like it. I miss hearing the dogs racing through the house chasing each other. And, I miss their sweet smiling faces. We miss Bobik's soft fur and Pilah's silly antics. We miss every thing about them. The other day I went to Costco to buy some things. When I was there, I found a plush blanket that felt like Bobik's fur. I bought it. And now when we all sit on the couch, we fight over it. The other day I caught Jude petting the blanket like it was Bobik. It was cute, but sad.

We really miss our dogs!

Here are some new pics of Bobik:

Hi everyone!
Czech Girl here. And yes, my poor Baby-Bobo is having some anxiety problems, which are upsetting us greatly because we want him to be healthy, happy and stick around forever :-) My boyfriend loves him so much that he even thought about having him cloned when he's gone (isn't that sweet) because he is such a good doggie. And as you can see, super cute as well. And silly too, with his fetish of sleeping on dirty clothes, shoes, or my bags(as pictured, that silly goose). And I'm sure he misses his previous mommy, daddy, and little master along with his fellow doggie friend very much too. Bobo and Felix were so cute together; I'm sure he enjoyed his company and he kept him feeling young too. I have pictures of the two of them displayed in my house and every time I look at them, I have to think about how lucky I was to meet you and Husband, and how indebted I am to you for providing such a loving home to my Bobo when I couldn't take him with me. You are wonderful people and great friends. Thank you for everything.

Hey Czech Girl!!

Thank you so much for your kind words. But, we are the lucky one's who got blessed to have Bobo for those 4 or so years. He truly was a great dog! Thanks for trusting us with your beloved baby. We, too, have pictures of the doggies displayed in our apartment and look at them all the time. It makes me feel good to see their smiling faces and wet noses. Thanks for keeping us updated. Hope to hear from you soon!
