A New Boston Terrier Blog

If you are a typical Boston Terrier crazy person, you love to look at pictures and read stories about Boston Terriers. You just can not get enough of these wonderful creatures! Right? Well, now there is another place to go to not only look at pictures of Boston Terriers but to have your own Boston's picture posted!

Here is how it all started:

Two years ago, Andrew didn't even know what a Boston Terrier was. "At that time I
was in college, living in a duplex with no yard at all. I'm a major animal lover and I wanted a dog. So, after a little internet research I knew bostons were for me. I loved the mini boxer look, they handle apartment life pretty well, hardly bark (don't believe everything you read online), and they met the 25 lb weight limit. Two years and two boston terriers later I wouldn't trade them for anything. They both have very different personalities. The puppy is definatly the alpha dog. The older one is pretty skiddish of everything, but they're both sweet, loyal, and cute. What more can you ask for?

Bandit, is 9 months and Bo's 2 1/2 years old. For being two dogs of the same breed they have very different personalities. Bandit has been the alpha dog since we brought him home at 9 weeks old. It was funny to see a 2 pound puppy stealing treats and toys from a full grown dog. Bandit is is one of the most playful dogs
I've ever met. His favorite game is fetch. He'll play as long as you'll throw the ball. We played for 2 hours straight last night, and our record must be over four hours.

Bo, is quite a bit more mellow. Bandit has taken over all of the toys except one Frisbee, so Bo doesn't have much to choose from. He mostly likes to sit on the couch and look out the window for people and dogs walking by to bark at. When Bandit finally wears himself out he curls up on your lap to sleep. Bo isn't
really much of a lap dog. He prefers to lay about arms length away so he can have his own space. When Bandit meets new people, he brings them a toy right away. He instantly befriends anybody will throw a ball for him. Bo is little more cautious and it takes him a few minutes to warm up to strangers. The only thing my dogs have in common is that their favorite dog treats are ice cubes. I know it isn't good for their teeth, but they really love them and they're cheap.

My two Bostons are one of the biggest part of my life (after my wife), they make everything more interesting! I know I am not alone in my love for Boston Terriers and that there are a lot of people out there that feel the same way I do about the breed. I decided to start a blog devoted to sharing Boston Terrier pictures and stories. I hope the rest of you Boston lovers out there will stop by and take the time to submit your best photos.
