    Default Bogey's Role as Comfort Dog

    Well, we arrived in Ct and Bogey is adapting wonderfully to his new surroundings! He has shown to be very flexible and seems to fit in no matter where we take him!
    I had posted last week that our plans for him are to enroll him in an organization that uses dogs for comfort and healing therapy, but not until we get back to Fl in June. I stated that he would get a trial run as a comfort dog when I have surgery the first week of May. Well, his role started earlier than expected, as I had a freak accident (at an ice cream stand of all places!) where I fell and fractured my left hand! I am now in a cast for the next 4 weeks! Bogey has been by my side every minute- he has been so good and gentle, as if he knows! These dogs continue to amaze me! We have also visited our hometown of Newtown, where he brings a smile to anyone he meets in an area that is still so reeling from that traumatic day last December. I expect my healing from my pending surgery, and now this stupid fracture, will be quick and uneventful with him by my side. I am one lucky person to have him in my life! I wish I had a million bulldogs to bring much needed smiles to our crazy, unsettled world we live in. When you look at a bulldog, you have no reason to hate. Bulldogs for peace....has a nice ring to it!

    I don't even know where to begin. I'm so sorry about what happened in Newtown, there's just no words that can express anyone's true .... sadness .... frustration ... disgust .... over what happened there.

    I can't believe you feel and fractured your left hand. I hope you are on the road to recovery and I know your precious boy will be right by your side. They do know when we are hurting and feeling bad. Momo (and my late boxer) would curl up in bed next to me and just lay there for hours. Never asked for a thing, to go out, nothing. They are our babies and know when we need them the most.

    God speed in your recovery and surgery in May also

    Beautiful. Well said. Hope you heal quickly. Hugs to you. And Bogey too for being such a sweetie to his mama!

    So sorry about your hand! I think bulldogs just make people smile. Yesterday with Mabel in my office, everyone just melted when they saw her!

    At some point your life has got to get a little easier. It is really sad when you can't even buy ice cream safely. We are sending our beat wishes for a speedy recovery. Take care!
