The Boz Dog

This was one of our family dogs. She was a “free to good home” puppy, a mutt beyond all mutti-ness and a nut beyond all nuttiness. Seriously, this dog was nuts. She looked like a Jim Henson creation and all she wanted to do was run. I named her Boz (though she had several nick names) because I was going through a Dickens phase when we got her.  As nutty as this dog was, she was very affectionate, kind, gentle, loving, full of joy, had a good sense of humor and was very,very patient. I think she actually liked it when we dressed her up…I was so happy when I found this photo this week! She’s wearing my Great Grandmother’s glasses. I hope she didn’t get a headache…..Sorry if you did, Whacko-Dog (nick name)…I miss you!

    Boz has the absolute perfect face for those glasses and babushka. He looks like a little old woman from an Eastern European country on her way to the fish market.

    Another wonderful thing about this photo is what’s going on on Boz’s left side, that discoloration on the wood paneling that to me kind of looks like Mr. Clean from the middle of his head down to his waist, and the way that it has made the neck, upper back and head of Boz appear to belong to a completely other dog than the lower part of his body.

    She was a great dog and yeah,she does look like the Lithuanian side of my famliy, so the babushka look really does work for her…….she was so lanky..a born runner, but otherwise lazy as can be lover-dog!

    That discoloration looks like a giant Hershey’s Kiss or rather a ghost thereof….This photo is pretty old. I think something must have been stuck to it….don’t think it was the film itself, but if it was, I could submit it to one of those ghost hunters….what I would give to be haunted by chocolate kisses….
