Bo lives with us. We found her in a shelter nearby, which we visited after a picture we saw from Bibi. You can already make a guess what happened, as we decided to adopt the two dogs. Because while walking through the shelter, we started at the row of boxes of the senior dogs. And there she was, Bo-Matilde. A big black bear, looking to us with sad eyes. We knew right away that we would bring her home. Her age? Thirteen years old, comparable with about 85 human years. She spent ten years of her life in the shelter. Even more reasons for us to adopt her.

I decided to share her story through Facebook, as her life deserves to be told.
