Boz Paws


Boz, my quiet muse. 
Boz, our fuzzy bouquet of stink.
Boz, the focus of too many conversations.
Boz, who wouldn't dream of leaving the porch without permission.
Boz, the passive-aggressive non-complainer of the practiced moan.
Boz, whose limits are untested, unfathomable, infinite, or perhaps just infinitesimal.
Boz, the master communicator.
Boz, the despot of routine.
Boz, my honey-pot,
Boz has the prettiest paws.

OK, that's cheating.

Shell Sherree said...

You have such a way with words, Petrea. Boz really does have beautiful paws. They are so well-defined and delicate. Happy weekend to you and your honey-pot.

Trish said...

Oh, such sexy toes. And I'm not much of a toe gal.

Lol on the passive-aggressive moan--it is amazing how well placed they can "happen".

Seems to be sitting so properly for you to take the shot.

He poses so well, but is he a poseur?

You forgot to mention those soulful ojos! Sweet photo!

Susan Campisi said...

Boz, the love of your life. You can have two, right?

Adele said...

Well said. Pet's paws are one of their very best features, and those are paws to write home about, most definitely.

Petrea Burchard said...

I'm not sure why it's cheating, JS, but it was the photo I came across last night that said "post me!"

Today my human honey-pot and I celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. I should have posted something about that but I didn't want to get all sappy. Because if you think I love Boz like crazy, hang on, it gets worse.

Yes, you can have two loves, at least I hope so, otherwise I've got competition for John's heart, in the form of a stinky canine with pretty toes and soulful ojos.

Trish said...

congrats on the anniversary, with both your boys!

Katie said...

Great photo! The paws of course are adorable, but oh that nose is just too cute. And happy 11th anniversary!

He's handsome all over, Petrea.
Beautiful words and photo.
A very Happy Anniversary to two amazing people. You have our permission to go get sappy.

Thanks, all. We just took a walk by the creek north of JPL, an adventure that wore Boz out (and his toes are now filthy). Ice cream and a movie later, maybe, maybe not. No rush to decide these things.

Happy Anniversary to you both. Just been watching the racing at Santa Anita on TV live (Camelot's trainer won one of the big races), and the weather looks brilliant. So you enjoy! PS. As you possibly know, Camelot didn't win in Paris but it turns out he was a tad poorly on that day. Good of him to run anyway no doubt to publicise your forthcoming book :) BTW, I am noticing the lawn that Boz's paws are perfectly placed. Have a good day!

Petrea Burchard said...

As you point out, LOL, Camelot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camelot_%28horse%29) has been kind enough to enter the public eye in time to help with my publicity. I adore him, and I also like his jockey's purple silks.

Happy anniversary!

Bellis said...

Congratulations on your 11th anniversary! Glad you had a happy outing a trois. When are you going to take John to the Lummis House?

Petrea Burchard said...

Thanks, Margaret!

Probably next anniversary, Bellis.

Ms M said...

Love you "Ode to Boz" -- he's such a good boy!

And happy, happy anniversary to you and John!

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, Ms. M. We've had a lovely weekend.

Latino Heritage said...

Oh, he is a charmer. Happy anniversary. May you continue to enjoy your times together.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, Roberta.

Dina said...

This post gives us pause.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, Dina and all.
