On a site whose by-line is “Love One Another,”
I can’t forget to remind you to be sure to
return the unconditional love
given to us by our “True Friends,” our pets!
Our Boston terrier is a real love
At eight and a half she thinks
She still is two.
We have had about eight Bostons
During our 57 years together.
They provide relief!
Relief from the seriousness
Of life on this planet –
They make you laugh.
If you’re a pet lover,
I don’t have to tell you –
They are True Friends!
Here is our TazE. What a blessing she is!
Let’s get acquainted!
“Play” is TazE’s middle name!
She loves to romp on the grass
and chase her favorite toy, the ball.
But any stick will do!
TazE is a bringle and white Boston.
See the touches of brown in her black body?
She started showing a little gray
around her eyes at about 6 years old.
By eight and a half, she has quite a bit of gray.
She loves to go for rides in the car or ATV with us.
Her bed and blankey MUST go along with her!
Boston Terrier Origins
Bostons are a USA registered breed: “The American Gentleman” (or Lady)
bred by combining an English Bulldog and a white English Terrier.
In the 1800s, a breeder in Boston, Massachusetts named Robert Hooper
acquired a dog of this mix named Judge.
Judge is the founding dog of the Boston Terrier breed.
Bostons have a similar body and pushed in nose as this darling pug.

What to Look For:
Like this cute little Boston puppy, it’s wise to choose one who has black hair around both its eyes. We had a Boston once with white hair around one of his eyes;
that eye was much more susceptible to infections,
very sensitive to light, and eventually after a
battle with a cat’s claws, the eye had to be removed.
That was Buster, our first Boston.
He was a love…. but
we learned to look for the black markings around both eyes
like this little puppy.
When tey are young, their ears flop like this.
Usually it takes about 6 weeks for the ears to stand up straight.
