Extremely photo intensive post!

I decided to make a Beastiesbox to keep all the memories of Beasties in, so I stayed up one of the nights last week and went through everything I own and found every picture I have of Beast and her things (bill of sale, scrap of paper we wrote all prospective names on, etc) her clothes and put them in a little box. I'm going to get a nicer box and decorate it with bostons from my page a day calender. I compiled and uploaded all these pictures, for anyone who wants to see Beasties lifetime (and mine too!)


Before Beasties, when I was about 9, I was given a 2 year old boston from the breeders named Lady, and she was my first boston. I adored her and she adored me, but sadly she wasn't good with children other than me, and bit 2 of my friends in the face (they were staring at her, to be fair) and she had to go live with an elderly couple.

After Lady was gone, I started doing more showing with the breeders...

Beasties playing with my brother's pug, Pumbaa. Pumbaa went on to the rainbow bridge about 2 years ahead of beasties, so she'll have some company.

Rista helped me clean my room a lot, a good chunk of the pictures I have of her are her helping me clean my room.

Look at how young she is!

Age 2, Beasties is a mummy! Notice my arm holding her down, cause she didn't want to be a mummy, she always wanted to be the baby. She had 2 boys and 2 girls and 2 went on to become am/can champions and the bruiser with the white head was a pet and the 4th went to be trained as an epilepsy assistance dog.

This was about grade 9, so Beasties would be 4 or 5

And some shots of the famous snuggli. Beasties was always lazy, and I devised the snuggli (formerly used for me) as a way to take her on my bike. Rista went everywhere in the snuggli, the mall, the bus, grocery shopping, she loved and it and slept a lot in it.

I used to make these things all the time, all different. I made a larger one of a boston dressed in a tuxedo dancing with a top hat and cane and it was so popular they asked me to make them as prizes for the boston terrier specialty that year.

I don't expect anyone to read the whole thing, but it helped me a lot to compile the whole thing and look back on Beastie's life and realize just really how old she was and that it was time for her to move on.
