My sweet baby is 1 years old today. I am going to tell the story of Hogerton for all of you that are interested. There will be lots of pics in this story as well.
It all started when my then boyfriend and now husband was moving. He moved into his boss's old house. There was a backyard and everything. I was like yay!! We can finally get our own boston. My parents own Tink & Rebel. I figured we would be able to have a dog since the last guy who worked for his boss and lived in the house had a big dog.
I would look online at the newspapers in our area daily. Boston Terriers are very hard to find out there in CA where we were living.
One day I found boston puppies for sale I called the lady: http://www.bostonterriermansion.com/
I told her I only wanted a boy. (I have read and learned from experience that males tend to be more loving than the females) I also told her I am looking for a boy with an all white head.
She said the boy was already reserved for someone else but she had another boston with "buns in the oven." She said she would call me when the dog gave birth. My husband then found out we would not be able to have a dog :(
The guy who lived there last let his dog chew up the house and ruin the back yard. I sobbed and sobbed. I wanted a little boston sooo bad. So I gave up and prayed to god that the dog in eureka would not give birth to a boy. I also prayed the lady would forget to even call me.
I knew the puppies were supposed to be born around the 10th of October. It was the 12th and she still hadn't called. Then the next day or so she called. She said she had lost my number but thankfully found it because the mom (Mellow ) only had one boy. Guess what? Not only was he the only boy. He also had an all white head too. I knew this was a sign and he was meant to be mine.
We decided to sneak the little puppy to and from his house. My mom said she would watch him during the day so he never had to be left alone at my husband's house. That weekend we made the 5 hour drive to see our little baby and put a deposit down on him
I named him Hogwarts because I love Harry Potter. My husband only agreed to this name because he loved the name Hog and that is what we mainly call him. So here are pics from the first time we saw Hog. He is 1 week old in these pics:
We loved our little baby so much. I dont think my husband and I have ever been so excited in our lives. It was so hard waiting for him to be ours. My dad wanted to see little baby Hogerton so my dad and I drove up there the next week. This time Hoggie was 2 weeks old.
I figured puppy eyes are like baby eyes and change colors. So I had no idea that they were going to stay blue like this.
We got to pick up our baby the day he turned 6 weeks old. My husband and I were flipppppppppppping out for the 5 hours we had to drive there. We were going crazy we were soooo excited.
This is when we stopped on the way home to let him pee.
This is right when we got home and took him to see my mom
We got Hog right before Thanksgiving so it was so fun to bring him to our dinner and introduce him to all the family. He was wearing his little red sweater at the time
We picked Hog on saturday, that monday I had a job for Glamour Magazine so I took him with me. The photographer loved him so he got to be in the shoot too!
us at the shoot:
He loved his purse and rode around in it everywhere. We even took him to restaurants and no one would even know he was there hahaha
At Christmas he got his picture taken with Santa
My husband would get sooo jealous because he would sleep on my head/neck every night. He loveeeed mommy :)
He loved torturing poor Tink & Rebel
But really did love them
He is very spoiled and got to go everywhere with us
Then came the time where mommy and daddy got married and had to move to FL. Hog loved Tink & Rebel so much we knew we had to get him a little sister
Once we got to Fl we introduced him to his new sister Lulu Belle. Who no he did not like at first
but now loves dearly.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOGERTON I LOVE YOUUUUUUU!!!!!!!
Some of the nicknames Hog has gotten in this year are: Hogerton, Hogsmeade, Hoggie, Hoogie Burger, Mother, Toggle, Hoggle old man, and Froggles.
Maybe there will be some more next year?
