EDITOR:

Bosco, remember me? My name was Bessie when we shared our time at the local Placerville Animal Shelter. It was back in September of 2011. I still do not know why we were there.

Bosco, how are you? I hope you are doing fine Bosco and Bosco, my new name is Lady, and I am doing great. I have always wondered about you and your new home. The kind people at the shelter told us you had found a new family Bosco and that made Master happy for you and for me as well.

Bosco, I met a skunk one night, and Master did not get that mad at me, since I was learning my new name, and the excitement took both of us in stride. Heck, I didn’t smell that bad. I had to get another bath and my family had towels and sheets all over the house. I thought it was neat but I do not think I want to try it again, but time will tell. I also met a couple of foxes Bosco that were trying to raise a new family on the property. Master persuaded them to leave.

I have many toys to play with indoors Bosco, and a lot of them were left over from my Master’s previous friend who he still tells me about on occasion. I think he still misses his friend Buddy. I like to play tug-of-war and the ears on some of the those toys are so fun to chew off, that now Master cuts them off before I eat them. I guess they would not taste that good Bosco.

Well Bosco, I am going to go with Master to check the mail and see what the weather’s like outside. This time of year is so lazy Bosco and I have a sore leg from running too much. Master says I need to stay off it for a few days. Bosco, I miss you, and you can throw some news my way anytime you and your master see fit to do so.

Hope to hear from you Bosco,

Lady (Bessie)

    Henry, you are awesome! I also just lost my best friend, and am searching shelters for a new friend too. I hope Lady sees her old friend again.
