Drum Roll Please...

boggie and rosie's stories are entwined...

it was Christmas time and we were with
pony girl and paint girl , and her man for
the holidays.

the girls and i went to an animal rescue...

cowboy made it very clear

NO more animals!!! he he

i fell in love with rosie the minute i saw her.
i thought she was the most beautiful dog.
she had just came in as a surrender.

i wanted her...i had to have her...

pony girl called cowboy to convince him
that this was the perfect dog for us...


NO more animals he said !!! he he

so home we went

i was heartbroken

i wanted this girl...

this is an amazing shelter

paint girl and her man had adopted a cat
a few weeks prior.

we talked the boys into going back to the shelter
cowboy made it very clear before leaving...

NO more animals!!! he he

i could hardly contain my excitement...

i knew he'd fall in love with this

girl if he saw her!

cowboy thought she was pretty...but

NO more animals! he he

cowboy wandered around to the cats...

he zeroed in on a cat named Frank

a "Norwegian Forest" cat

aka ole' blue eyes

he wanted to see him...wanted to hold him...
he fell in love

he wanted to take him home!!! he he

so MY cowboy says...

i suppose if i want this cat

i said

"that's the way it works cowboy!!!

i got my beautiful girl

we decided to take boggie to the beach house

to keep lily company.

You forgot to mention his name is Boggie, short for "Bogart", right? (From one movie star to another! :)
I love this cat, he is such a character. Every time I go to take a shower, he insists on coming in and drinking water from the sink. I think if you lived on a sailboat, he'd be happy. He's a water cat! Although, be careful when playing with him, he's got a quick draw, let me tell ya! xo

Pony Girl, You are right!
Boggie is short for Bogart!

Bogie looks like my cat, Sonja. She is really big, too (about 15 pounds) -- much larger than our male cat. I saw a program on cats on TV recently, and I believe Bogie and Sonja are what they call "Ragdoll" cats -- These Ragdolls are really easy going, they flop around like a limp cloth when you pick them up and like to lay on their backs. Does Bogie have enormous paws???

Dusty Devoe said...

Yes, Boggie's feet are huge!

Hi Dusty, it is so nice to hear a good ending for some lonely pets. I work for the SPCA up here and some of the stories just break your heart. Animals do have a way of sneaking into your heart don't they. they are both very lucky to have found you both. Horses too can become our best friends. I know how you feel about your horses being everything to you.

Boggie is an enormous cat! And very beautiful. I will never forget that day that dad kept saying NO! We barely got him up to the shelter to see Rosie! Now I am sure he is glad he did!

Boggie is so handsome! I've heard of Norweigan Forest cats but I don't really know anything about them.
Our big, blue-eyed cat is Lola (a Ragdoll). She weighs between 15 and 20 lbs.
