Zen Boz

Not in a mood for funny yet wishing to provide you with Zen Monday, I'm re-posting a Zen Monday from 2010, including the comments that prompted me to post the second photo. There are quite a lot of them, and room for you to comment at the bottom.

Boz provided us with love, exercise and endless entertainment. We will miss him always.


Welcome to Zen Monday. In case this is your first: Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about. There's no right or wrong. We're here to have fun.I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. Unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box to avoid influencing the discussion, because when I get in there everything goes down hill.
Update: To understand this photo, please read the comments.

Is that a rabbit hole? It could be a rabbit hole. No, I don't think it's a rabbit hole ~ is it?

Pipe dreams!

There is an old sled dog saying here in Minnesota, "Unless you are the lead dog the view never changes." Looks like a California dog has borrowed the saying.

Cute butt.

Boz is contemplating his understanding of Stephen Hawking's explanation of Black Holes and anti-matter.

Boz hesitated at the cave's mouth. It was, he knew, a back entrance to the Mines of Moria, a place swarming with orcs, spiders and dog groomers. But his master, Frodo, had gone that way earlier and needed his help. Boz shrugged off his fears, held his head high, and padded in.

To go in or not to go in. That is the question.

Squirrel!

Contemplating the trifecta of fears: fear of the dark, fear of small spaces and fear that my butt is too big.

Ohhhh please!!! Don't make me spew on my computer again!!!

Is it wrong to mention that if you turn Boz's nether regions upside down, I see a Tiki God face?

Another dark...whole.

two holes are better then one
Bellis said...
AH, now really - what were you doing to notice that? Do you regularly look at your screen while standing on your head? I can't stop laughing.

Could also be a baboon hanging from a tree by his arms...if you look at Boz in AH's upside down kinda way. :>O
Mister Earl said...
Yes, AH, it is. But I see a wolf face!
Susan C said...
AH, That was my first thought too. Strangely enough, it looks like the face of an angry dog with perked up ears.

Rorschach Boz test?

Susan C: You mean like a wolf?

Petrea said...
You asked for it. The post has been updated with a new photo, so you can further obsess over Boz's butt.

I hope he'll forgive me.
Mister Earl said...
Now it's beginning to look like a talking goat.
USelaine said...
I wonder if my butt makes a face...

Nope, nevermind.
J+P said...
Okay, that's it, I'm outta here.
Petrea said...
Elaine. Hilarious.

I'm following J, but just stopping long enough to say I see a satyr.
Petrea said...
Boz's butt takes on mythical proportions.
Margaret said...
Butt for you...

I'm howling after USElaine's comments. Everyone's ponderings have been great to read!

Sometimes it's even more fun coming late to the party. Way. Too. Funny.

P.S. I worry about posting too many photos of Wilson's back end but he is always walking in front of me...
Petrea said...
This is how clueless I am: I didn't even think about it. I thought about Boz staring down that tunnel. But if you look back through the comments, you'll see the Hiker started it.

Behinds like that are one-in-a-million, no matter which way you look at them. Just like the puppy dog they belong to. Take good care, dear Petrea. Hugs from Ella and me.

-K- said...

I don't know anything about it except that there's nothing "Zen" about losing a pet.

I hope this weekend wasn't as tough for you and John as I was imagining it to be.

Adele said...

I love this perfect tribute to the Internet Sensation that was Boz. My thoughts echo Kevin's. Thinking of you.

Petrea Burchard said...

John's doing okay. I'm taking it pretty hard, but we both miss Boz. It does get a little easier every day, but little things throw me off.

TheChieftess said...

I still miss Daisy...Boz will be missed...by all of us...and especially by the two of you...but...I promise...sooner or later...you will be able to look at his picture and smile again...

Bellis said...

It's been hard to post comments today, is it just me? I missed the butt photo thread last time so it's been a laugh. Abby liked Boz's butt - first place she went to when they met. Wonder if his playdate friend misses him?

altadenahiker said...

I remember this!

Petrea Burchard said...

Thanks, Chieftess. I look forward to that, and I know you're right.

Bellis, I haven't heard any other complaints but there aren't many comments today. Maybe people think the ones from 2010 are from today and I've already got more than my share.

I thought you would, Hiker. You were largely responsible for the fun.

Trish said...

Tiki god butt.

Don't we ALL wish we had the butt of a god?

Some of us have butts of Jabba the Hutt.

Boz was no Jabba, right side up or upside down.

Thankfully, you've posted many memories here and I'm sure you and John have many, many more to recall.

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Boz Rorschach test - I saw a wart hog

Petrea Burchard said...

Any kind of god butt is all one can hope for, Trish.

PA, should I worry?

Ms M said...

Fun to remember...

Kalei's Best Friend said...

Boy, I sure missed this repost on the 23rd.... Boz sure had a sexy rear frame... and I also see a face there.. Wished I had come across your blog 3 years ago! I have missed out on a lot... I know we've all learned a lot about ourselves thru your Boz.

Speedway said...

Of course, "all good dogs go to heaven," but do they have to present themselves butt first there, too? And what kind of dog guards the Pearly Gates - and is he in charge of the testing?

Jean Spitzer said...

Thanks for more Boz..

And the laughs.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thanks, everyone. Boz was always sweet and fun. We miss him.

LONDONLULU said...

Boz had the cutest and most fascinating butt. What a sweetie. Thinking of you still.

Petrea Burchard said...

We're missing him still. He was an individual of gentle soul.
