Reintroduction of Wilbur and his step brother Porkchop

My name is Joanna. I am lucky enough to have Wilbur- a 3 year old Boston Terrier who is the light of my life. When I was younger I worked at a pet store and did mainly the kennel work there. It's part of the reason why I don't support pet stores now! I was exposed to a lot of bad things there but worked there because I needed a job and I loved working in the kennel with the puppies. I always tried to do anything to make them happier. I remember coming into work one day and seeing this tiny thing with a pink nose and these big ears... he was curled up in his food bowl! He was precious. He had just come in that day and was in line to get his vet check. Turns out the poor puppy had a horrible pneumonia. At the time there were no other sick puppies in the store so I took the puppy home with me so keep the other puppies safe. I had every intention of bringing him back as I've never really planned on having a Boston Terrier. But he bonded immediately with my Bichon mix and he was the perfect "fit". He was the BEST puppy and so lovingly sweet. I named him Wilbur and he never went back there. I quit my job and kept the lil pup! 
In addition to Toby the Bichon mix, we now have a "step doggie" Porkchop (my boyfriend's dog) who is a half Boston and half English Bulldog.  Porkchop is definitely everything that is energetic and boisterous! He's a ton of energy and fun!

Here's my little sick boy, how could I not fall in love?!
