Meet Virginia! (Jumping on the re-introduction bandwagon...)  
What a great idea! Now I need to go back and leave comments on all of these great posts about your beautiful Boston babies.

I'm Amy, and my husband and I are owned by Virginia, who turned seven years old earlier this month. Her full name is The Shire's Virginia Lórien, because she shares a birthday with the father of Middle-earth himself, J.R.R. Tolkien. We live in the foothills of North Carolina, where Virginia is the proud winner of Lenoir-Rhyne University's "Cutest Pet" Contest. (Of course a Boston had to win!)

Virginia's favorite things are taking long walks by the lake every morning (especially if she gets to pester bunnies or wild turkeys), napping, playing with her Kong, napping, sunning herself, and napping. She's trained to use dog litter, and she really likes this, especially when it's especially hot or cold outside. Her "turn ons" include apples, peanut butter, and cheese -- but then again, she never met a treat she didn't like.

Here is a photo I took of her earlier this month:


On to more pictures of Virginia!

I love Virginia! She's a big girl, isn't she? That's awesome that you've got her litter trained.

Thanks so much! *g* She is indeed a big girl. The vet says she's just about as tall as Bostons ever come, and she's about 28 pounds. Her mother was a big Boston, too, but her father was a somewhat smaller laddie. ;)

Virginia is so photogenic! I know I've said it before a long time ago but I still love your house.

Aw, thank you so much, on both counts! :)

She looks rather unimpressed by the posing for pics doesn't she =0) And she's from NC and a fan of LOTR too! Woo!

Yes, when the camera comes out, she knows just to bide her time and wait for her bribes treats. LOL. And LOTR and NC = good taste! :)
