Boss is enjoying the retired life

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 6 March 2012 | 8 Comments


Boss has been with me for just over 14 months now. He is the most gorgeous, gentle little man you could dream of! I’m so lucky to have him - he is a great companion.


He comes with me to work every now and then and everyone adores him. He just walks around the place, goes into peoples’ offices and says hello (and checks out their rubbish bins), sleeps on the couch in the staff room or under my desk. Just a delight!

He will be 14 this year and his eye sight and hearing are fading a bit, but he is very active and happy and loves his walks morning and night. He still loves his toys and has plenty of them.

The other night when I was doing the ironing, he suddenly decided that the washing basket was a great place to keep an eye on me – here is a picture.

Warm regards

Barbro & Boss

  • We met Boss when he lived with Moira and Will and we loved him. Quite a character. It's great to hear news of him now. Thanks.

  • Barbro - thanks so much for posting an update on Boss. His previous owner in UK was asking for him recently (even though she has Alzheimers) and it was great that my husband was able to pass on your news. I have some photos of Boss in his younger days if you are interested. Many thanks again.
