It’s been a while since my last Share Your Pet post 🙂 Since this is special for guest post, I often find difficulty in finding people who want to share their pets here. Fortunately, Mommy asked her friend, TBM @ 50 Year Project to share a bit about her lovely pets, Miles and Atticus.
This is my first time featuring non-turtle pets 🙂 I am sooooo excited.
Take it away Aunty TBM 🙂
A couple of weeks ago Novroz asked me to introduce my boys on her site.
I’ll begin with Miles. This Boston Terrier has spunk. He was named Miles since he traveled a lot of miles when he was a puppy. He was born in Colorado and moved to Boston when he was twelve weeks old. At the time, no one knew that Miles would then move from Boston to London. He really has traveled far.
I didn’t meet him until he was three. Right away he stole my heart. He has the best smile in the world. And he has tons of energy. Just the other day a woman with a puppy asked how old Miles was as he rolled around on the ground with her puppy. When I said he was ten she was flabbergasted. He does not act like an old dog. And I hope he never does. The woman claimed Miles is not a boring dog. She’s right about that. Each day he brightens my life.
Now for the prince of our family. This is Atticus. I do believe he thinks he’s royalty. In reality, Atticus was a stray. When I still lived in Colorado we had experienced a week of frigid temperatures and a lot of snow. Late one night I was getting into my car and I heard a weird quacking sound. It was a dark night so I couldn’t see what it was making the sound. It turned out to be Atticus. He decided to adopt me that night. I took him home and he’s been with me ever since—eight years now. When he climbed into my car I thought he was a kitten. A few days later I took him to the vet and realized he was over a year old. He was tiny from living on the streets. A few weeks later, he had put some weight on and his fur looked a lot more respectable.
A year later he moved to Boston with me and met Miles. They haven’t become the best of friends, but occasionally I find them cuddling. Usually this is on cold nights. Like Miles, Atticus moved to London with us. Our new flat has tons of windows for him to look out of.
I think both boys are happy to be living in London. And we are happy to share our home with two incredible animals. And we spoil them rotten.
Thank you for sharing about Miles and Atticus, Aunty TBM 🙂
We, 3 turtles and 1 human, all think that both Miles and Atticus are very handsome.
