Mr. Bones

We're using our blog today to tell our friends about a distinguished older gentleman named Mr. Bones. Bones has lived at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary since he was just a pup when he arrived from Puerto Rico...he was born in 1994. He has spent his life at the Sanctuary waiting for the perfect home and it's finally found him over a decade later. You can follow his journey home that starts tomorrow on his blog at

If anyone is a fan of Dogtown on National Geographic you'll remember Mr. Bones from last season. Mom was lucky enough to spend some time with him when she was at BF in March and immediately fell in love. (What's new, right?) We think he's a pretty cool dude though and we hope he lives to be 100 in his new home, he deserves it.
Old dogs RULE.

Old dogs do rule! We would have a extended care facility for elderly dogs if we had the space. We will be looking for Mr. Bone's blog.

what a nice ending. I know the dogs home is full of lovely people but nothing beats a loving home.I only did a 6 month stint in care, bones sure has some stamina, I'll drop by and see his blog.

The Girl said...

Yay for Mr. Bones' new furever home! We love a happy ending, and he sure waited a long time for his.

We're going to look at his blog tomorrow!

Like Moco, The Girl wants to have a retirement home for old dogs. Me, I think that I like being an only dog. The Min Pins don't count, cuz they're Roomie's. And I'm not too keen on sharing The Girl with them, either.

Oops, when did this comment become about me? We're also heading over to see what Best Friends Animal Sanctuary is all about. I bet The Girl will really like it!

Brown dog kisses,
