And once some one challenged me about not loving Boba because of his origins - he was a stray puppy born at the door steps of a friend. He might have been born in lowly strata but he is no doubt the best amongst any pedigree in Miri.
My family and I cannot sing enough praises of him ...and each day the list grows longer. I suppose you cannot say that of many humans you know.
How loveable is Boba?
As I look into Boba's eyes I know he will protect my children and I.
Boba is a "clean dog" because he does not get dirty and come home with dirty paws (as you know from many movies).. So we have been saved a lot of house cleaning because when he enters the house he is always clean. no paw marks. thanks. Only a few hairs here and there but not much.
Bobba is a silent listener. He sits and watches TV with us and sometimes we talk to him like an adult. There is no doggy language between him and us. He will always cock his ear and listen to us in that very humble way. And of course he will never "but" us which is a real comfort in these days.
He is born to be a great hunting dog.....and has terrorised the neighbourhood furry and feathered beings to our surprise and fun. He often catches rats which dare to cross his path in our vicinity which is made up of a little cluster of four houses. Here he is chasing a porcupine which losts its way in Kampong Lusut during one of our evening walks. He has won many battles against cobras and pythons and even a few porcupines. He only could not bring home the anteaters.
