A Boy’s Best Friend

Hi, this is Rebecca (one of the authors who writes under the pen name Ronesa Aveela).

Today, we’re hosting Paulette Mahurin, a fantastic author and a dear person who cares about our furry friends. The proceeds from her books go to save the lives of dogs.

Animals are special pets, and are more than that to many people. I grew up with one sister and three brothers. Actually, four brothers, only one of them was my mother’s “furry baby.” He was every bit a part of our family as her human babies. My mother even got him to say, “Mama.”

What made him even more special is that he was born around the same time as my youngest brother. This puppy was the runt and had somehow gotten into a cocoa can, and his mother wouldn’t take him back. My mother put him in the crib with my baby brother and they grew up together, almost like twins. My mother had lost my brother’s natural twin early in her pregnancy. I like to think that the soul of this child made its way into the puppy.

We called the puppy Bozo, after Bozo the clown. He was part collie and part beagle.

Here’s a picture showing him off to the side, along with me, one of my older brothers, and Bozo’s mother, Queenie.

Yes, we had lots of snow back then. I often thought it was just because we were little that it seemed so high.

It was a sad day when he died of old age.

If you’ve ever had a furry family member, you’ll understand. That’s why what Paulette does is so important. She saves the lives of these dogs, who have not had the love that our Bozo and many other dogs have had.
