Boots has sadly crossed Rainbow Bridge. His dad said…”He was a once in a lifetime companion.”  10 years ago Boots was adopted from RPACI. He was a big puppy, around 50 pounds at just 7 months. But he had found his forever home. He loved his people and they loved him. Boots was a smart loveable puppy, but an escape artist. Guess he was too smart. He couldn’t be left outside during the day. So, his mom and dad would put him in a large pen in the basement while they went to work. Not having that, Boots decided he would escape. “Yes, that’s it, they left a table in the pen. I will jump on it and get out!!” So, he jumped on the table and oh no….. he was now facing a wall. It wasn’t a way out after all. He couldn’t figure out how to go backwards or turn around to get off.

These pups had the best of life. Woods to play in, warm beds to lay in and so much love and care. They also gave so much to their human families and were so loved by them and the entire community. Our lives were enriched by them.
Their lives were tragically cut short in December. Following is an excerpt from the local news:

Jinx crossed Rainbow Bridge today, February 15, 2021. Rescued 3 years ago, she was so beautiful, loyal, fun, and intelligent. A fabulous athlete. She lent herself to training for agility courses and learned very quickly. She even competed.

Jinx was so happy hiking or going to the lake for a quick dip. A fabulous best friend to Elise. She was an absolute delight and always eager to please. She will be terribly missed by her humans and also her canine family.
