The Best of My Dogs

Ever since I was a little boy, I have always loved my dog’s, I have had many dogs in my lifetime. When I was six years old, I had a chocolate Lab named bow. We gave him the nickname, “Bow Bow.” He was four years old in human years when we got him. As I got older and bigger and he became older, slower, and grumpy. My mom had another child when I was about 8 years old. My little sister was just about 2 years old when bow became a little aggressive so we had to get rid of him. I remember coming home after school and he wasn’t there I remember mom saying for all of us kids to come to the living room and sit. She said we have something to talk about. She told us how he is getting old, more aggressive, and it was time for him to go. She said he was in a good place with a big yard and a safe loving family. I miss him he was an amazing dog, I remember how I used to take his bone and throw it across the yard; he would run after it and bring it back to me over and over again, and I think he was hoping that I would get tired before him but he was always the one running after it and bringing it to me so I just had to sit there and do very little. I would have gotten tired a lot faster than him if sides were flipped and I was running for it and bringing it back to him. He was a great dog, and I wish we still had him.

About two years after we got a new dog Otis, he was white with brown streaks and dots, he was a  Jack Russell Terrier mix. He was a great dog. However, he wasn’t enough for everyone, at the moment we had 7 people in our house and we would always argue about who’s playing with him and when so we decided to get another dog.

Our new dog, Jasmin is a Boston Terrier, she is black with white dots. She is probably one of the most hyper dogs I have ever had in my whole life. She always wants to play she has 3 toys that she is crazy about her squeaky bear, her talking cat and her bone like string toy. She is very well trained. If she needs to use the restroom, she will come to you bark then go to the door to be let outside. If she’s hungry and she wants food she will bring you her bowl, set it next to u, and bark. Over the past few years she has been starting to get slower, less energetic, and she’s calmed down a little bit. It’s like humans when we are young, hyper and continuous; then we get old and are unable to do the things we did back then.
