Poll about Adult Boston Terriers

Hey guys. I almost never post here but I love reading about all your dogs. I've been waiting for a slow day so I could have time to create this Boston poll. I'm very curious about your dog's behaviors. I wanted it to be more than 15 questions- but that's the limit! Later I may do another poll. Hopefully you'll have fun with this! The only thing is please DON'T vote in the poll if your Boston is still a puppy. I'm trying to figure out the nature of adult Bostons that are over a year old. Also, please DO vote in the poll even if your adult Boston has passed over the rainbow bridge. If you have more than one adult Boston do the poll for each dog (if it will let you and you have time).

THANKS AND HAVE FUN!!!
