Letter From the Heart

Dear friends and fans,

Two years ago today we lost the star of this blog our sweet Badger Boo, we were totally devastated. I couldn't face his pictures and everybodies condolences so decided to take a month off from blogging, one month soon became two and then three and so on and so on, I managed a couple of vague posts but my heart just wasn't in it any more.

Badger Boo was such a character that's for sure, so very, very naughty but not in a bad way. He was always making us and others laugh with his daft antics, these soon became known as this blog "Badger Boo's Daft Adventures" and we made so many wonderful friends.

We still miss him like it was only yesterday, but slowly we're able to remember his adventures with more joy and less tears, sometimes even laughing about the things he got up too.

To catch up on Badger Boo's early life before social media, you may remember he started the mini series within this blog called "Jackanory Stories" the baton has now been passed to Boris to continue the story and the name of this blog has been changed to add Boris, but don't panic the url remains the same, so you can still find us.

Boris is eagerly looking forward to telling you how he's helped us with the loss of Badger Boo and how he's become an important part of my life as my Assistance Dog.

So much has happened in the past two years, so as well as posting Boris's adventures he'll also be posting his own mini series so you can all catch up on what he's been up to whilst we've been away.

As to what Boris's mini series will be called I'm still struggling with a title at the moment, hopefully some of our awesome friends and fans will have some ideas.

Apologies that I've been quiet for so long, but really looking forward to catching up with everybody again.

Amazing Day Yesterday

Late yesterday afternoon mum and I did something truly amazing, it was very exhausting for mum which is why I've not posted until now.

As you know I've been around Sainsbury's several times in the last few weeks with both The Olds and practicing walking nicely by the trolley, trollies can be a scary item to dogs when not used to them. Mum has really struggled to go shopping without dad or somebody with her for many years, she gets very panicky on her own and sometimes can't even go into the shop, a few weeks ago she and I managed a quick walk around Asda in Woking on our own whilst dad waited outside, it might not sound much but was a big thing for her to do. Recently I've been keeping a beady eye on my food tins and starting to worry we'd run out and I'd have to eat just dry food on its on until dad could go shopping at the weekend.

What We've Been Up Too

Gosh where do I start?
Since we lost Badger Boo in August last year, so much has happened.

 I've been doing lots of training. 

Most of it serious stuff.

Practicing Down from a Distance on our walk tonight.

Some of it fun stuff.

Just got back from my Agility taster session, I had great fun once I realised I had to jump over the fences not go under them BOL #SillyPup

Moving Forward - Life After Badger Boo

Hello everpawdy, hope you all had a pawtastic Christmas. 
As you've probably noticed I've made some changes to the blog, a new year equals a new start.

Things have been difficult for The Olds since Badger Boo left us for The Rainbow Bridge in August.

My latest new toy, I found it upstairs in mum's craft room, it's a treasure trove of dog toys up there! Badger Boo kept that a secret from me when I wasn't allowed up those stairs because it was his special place.

 I love it and can't stop carrying it around all day, mum says I'm not supposed to carry it this way, but I don't want to hold it in the middle.

Some Sad News

An awful lot has happened since I last posted but I'll tell you more about that in future posts.
Today I have to tell you the very sad news that Badger Boo crossed The Rainbow Bridge last Wednesday morning.

It was discovered a few weeks ago he was suffering with Pancreatitis and he was quite unwell, but with medication he soon rallied and became more his like his old self again.

Happy 1st Birthday Boris

I'd forgotten how much work puppies were! Boy did you re educate me quickly, with the digging up of my lovely garden, the almost constant removal of slugs and stones from your mouth, the endless trips outside every hour on the hour day and night to potty, it took you weeks to get the hang of toilet training didn't it, where did all that poop come from in one so small?

I'm a Yellow Dog

I'm out and about on very short walks on the lead now, I'm still not allowed to play with other pups, so I wear a yellow ribbon on my harness and lead to inform everypawdy I need some space since my surgery.

There are lots of different reasons why some dogs are Yellow Dogs.
