Jesse James was rescued by a local couple that found a litter of puppies in a ditch while bike riding. Ben and I were dating at the time, but they asked if we wanted a puppy, and Ben did. When he went to pick out which one he wanted, he stomped his foot really loud on the concrete. All of the puppies ran away from him except for one little male that marched right up to his foot. :) He was the one. I named him Jesse James, and he has been with us for about 8 or 9 years now. He has been the best dog and best guard dog! When I was home alone, he would never leave the back door. We have SUCH great memories of him, and I'm glad that he was a part of our family for so long! We affectionately called him "Boogars" or Boogs." :) Here are some of my favorite photos of him!
We will miss you, Boogs!!!
