Sad news

I'm knocking my regularly scheduled post to tomorrow so I can bring you some very sad news. You may remember my post about LBR foster Boz, who was found without a tongue.We never did learn how it happened, but I don't think he was born with it because he was struggling really hard in his foster home. He could eat, but he had a very hard time drinking and couldn't stay hydrated or cool. Finally, yesterday, his foster parents and LBR management made the very difficult decision to help Boz to the Rainbow Bridge.

We'll miss you so much, Boz, but I'm not sad for you. Boxers are meant to give giant face-slurping kisses, clean up all those crumbs our humans drop, and lick peanut butter out of Kongs. You weren't able to do any of that, and I know it made you so very sad and confused. Now you're free and whole again, and you can do everything a boxer is supposed to. I'm so sorry we couldn't help you here on Earth, but you'll always be part of the Legacy family. We love you, Boz!


  1. That is horrible! Poor Boz! He was really so lovely. If someone did that to him, they should be shot!! That is despicable.

  2. OH NO! We are very very sad about this.



  3. He's whole now - and is giving big, slurpy Boxer kisses in Heaven. I just KNOW it!
    Play bows,

  4. Oh NO, not poor Boz! Dang! I liked him.
    But I knows what you mean, boxers are meant to do them sloppy kissies and he wasn't ables. But he is complete now.

    Run free and slurp likes theres no tomorrow Boz.


  5. God bless Boz he tried so hard to adapt...we expect Ginger the Doxie and April the Crested met Box at the Bridge to welcome him. Run free to all of these brave puppies.
    Hugs Madi

  6. This is so very sad. But you are right. Boz could not have been very happy living like that. Now he never has to worry about things any more - he must be very happy across the Rainbow Bridge with so many of our friends.

  7. As sad as this is, I am sure that Boz is now Happy and enjoying how EASY it is ... on the other side of the bridge.
    Run Free and Fast in PERFECT condition.

  8. Oh, poor Boz. I can't imagine not having a tongue and being able to give kisses and eat cheese. Like you said, I know he is having the BESTEST time over across the Bridge eating and tasting and drinking anything he wants! Run free, Boz! And eat some heavenly cheese for me!

    Gentle wiggles & wags,

  9. Poor baby, sending all good vibes

  10. Our hearts are breakin' now. We are sendin' all of our luvs and boxer puppy prayers to LBR. RIP sweet Boz.

    Blessings and Love,
    Maggie Mae and Max

  11. I'm so sorry to hear the news about Boz. Boz left for the Bridge the same day as my sissy, April.

    If you would like to have Boz included in the April edition of "Our Rainbow Friends", we would need to get your favorite picture and approximate age of Boz. It can be emailed to:

    Again, sending prayers to LBR and you too.
