Fur-Kid Friday: Meet Mr Jason Grant’s Boston Terrier, Sophia

I’m a huge fan of pets and I truly believe that they make our lives – and our homes – infinitely better.

For those of us who don’t have kids (and even those of us that do, actually), a four-legged friend is our child. We feed them, we clean them, we fret and worry over them and we spend truckloads on them when they get sick. And sometimes spend loads on them just because.

These little treasures are our fur-kids. And in a new weekly segment on the blog, Fur-Kid Friday, you’re going to meet the gorgeous pets of some popular creatives – and hear the story of how pet and human met.

This week, meet Mr Jason Gran’t gorgeous Boston Terrier, Sophia.

The Story of Jason and Sophia

Meeting Sophia was a picture perfect moment.

“We got out of the car and she ran to us. It was like a movie; love at first sight”.

We found Sophia in an ad saying a regretful sale.

“It turned out the lady who rescued Sophia couldn’t keep her on her farm as she was not getting along with some of the other dogs she had rescued, so we drove 9 hours to collect Sophia from Sale in Victoria”.

Rescuing a dog instead of buying from a breeder seemed like the right thing to do.

“After being in the USA and being confronted by the amount of rescue dogs there it raised my awareness. I was always wanting a Boston Terrier but I never thought it would be possible to rescue one”.

We missed out on the puppy phase.

“We’ve had Sophia for just over a year. She is 7 and we’ve loved her from the start – we think she is perfect!”.

She can be naughty, but we love her.

“She sneaks into our bed as soon as we are asleep, but after a tough day she always makes us smile and she keeps us active; she loves a walk at the park or a swim at the beach”.

A warning to people looking to buy a Boston.

“To be honest they fart and snore but love to cuddle – Sophia thinks she’s a person not a dog!

If Sophia could talk…

“We imagine this all the time! She would be vey cute and cheeky. She has a very upbeat happy personality”.

    Little Sophia is gorgeous isnt she? We have always had golden retrievers but after losing our last one recently we decided to rescue a dog, as there are so many needing good homes. We researched the right dog for us and found out that greyhounds make perfect pets after racing. Believe it or not they don’t need much exercise, are fine in a small backyard, don’t bark and don’t shed hair like other dogs. There are so many that need homes after their racing days are over. Like Jason’s little fur kid they come house trained and out of the puppy stage, so they are perfect. We now have two and I love them dearly, they are so affectionate believe it or not. They love comfy couches and beds and they pinch all my throws and cushions but I don’t care, they are so worth it!
