I started my own human family with the birth of my scrumptious son, Morgan, (if you’re a parent you’ll know that children are truly, truly scrumptious).
I’ve watched him grow and develop – through all the tears and smiles and everything in between into a perfectly perfect child of six years old (so far!). Those years before us have been wonderful, but our family was not quite complete, we needed to expand, to give our love to others and that is when our cute cat Winston came into our lives, for years we continued as a kick-bottom trio.
Though, we still had more room in our hearts, we decided to buy a puppy. Except when it came to our Reginald, it didn’t all quite go to plan, as an eight-week old puppy Reginald picked us as his humans, he allowed us to take him into our home. The next day, Reginald was barely responsive, we rushed to the vets and he nearly lost his life. This awful intestinal disease called Parvovirus had taken hold of his tiny little body, but against all odds, we nursed him back to full health and he made a great recovery.
Our love for Reginald (Winston wasn’t so keen to begin with!) has grown and flourished beyond explanation. The next six months ran without a hitch, we had all those magical moments and warm feelings, but unfortunately in this world, bad things happen sometimes. Reginald got attacked and for the second time in six months, we nearly lost him again. Now, either Reginald is the luckiest pooch in the world, pooch God is looking out for him or the amazing vets combined with unconditional love, got him to pull through and make another miraculous recovery both physically and mentally.
So, there we were, cuddled up on the sofa one day, with the cone of shame poking me in the face. The scary realisation that one day he won’t be around, loomed over me. I couldn’t push the thought that I could have lost him.
Sadly, at some point our greatest loves will have to leave us and nobody knows when that will be and they cannot be replaced. I vowed on that day to make every month (or pooch year) the best month he’s ever had. All of the walks, all of the love and of course, all of the treats and toys I could find. Then this little meow came from behind me and Winston wanted to leap up and join the cuddle, now I couldn’t just leave him out, could I? And why stop there? Every dog and cat should get to have unconditional love, treats and toys too, that’s what Boop & Floof are about, spreading that great Boop & Floof joy!
We hope you will join our Boop & Floof family.
Kirsty, Morgan, Reggie & Winnie.
