It's been one year since we adopted MSIR alum Bongo! We couldn't be happier with him, he's brought so much joy to us. I'll never forget the first day I saw him, he was such a little chub! He's since then slimmed down and has turned into a happy, active, Shiba! Bongo loves to cuddle, and isn't happy if he's not being petted. He will absolutely let you know when he wants you to give him a belly rub, he gets quite huffy!
He loves to lay by the window and watch the world go by, but I'm sure he's keeping an eye out for all those squirrels he loves to chase! Traveling is another favorite thing of his, once he gets in the car he knows he's going somewhere exciting! Bongo enjoys spending time at Joey's parent's house the most, since he knows he'll get lots of treats there! He's such a friendly dog, and it's been amazing to see how he's bonded to us over the past year. Sometimes he can be a little too friendly though, and it makes for long walks when he tries to greet everyone he sees! If only he felt that way about other dogs!
I can't being to thank you all enough for your amazing organization, if it hadn't been for us stumbling across the MSIR website one day we would've never found this amazing little guy who I can't imagine a life without now. And an even bigger thanks to his foster momma, Shirley for allowing him to be a part of our family! We look forward to many, many long, happy years with Bongo. He's our first Shiba and definitely not our last!
Thank you to Emily and Joey for giving Bongo such a great home, helping him get in shape, and for sharing your story! Thank you to Bongo for being so dang cute!
