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. He was so large and the table so small. Mom and dad didn’t know how long he was sitting on that table with his face to the wall. But that was the last time. He moved into the upper part of the house 24/7 and there he stayed to his last breath. Boots was not only intelligent, (he learned quickly) he was a beautiful dog and, he was the most friendly dog ever. He never met a stranger….he would sit next to his dad and greet everybody that came up. The only ones he really didn’t care for was cats, except the one he rescued that became his buddy. Boots loved to go for rides and would visit his fosters at PetSmart every few weeks for loves and hugs and to talk a little with them. He was loved by so many and he loved all of them. Our deepest condolences to his human family. Boots will be so missed by everyone that knew him. Farewell to our sweet Boots a true gentle giant and all around great, loving dog. You rest now, you deserve your rest. You gave your all.
