Happy Wednesday! This week, we’re excited to share the sweet story of Mindy Magaña and her perfect pup, Bartholomew JoJo Simpson Magaña (Bart for short).
While Mindy didn’t think that she was a “dog person”, everything changed when her mom got a Belgian Shepherd a few years ago. Mindy fell in love and finally got a taste of what it’s like to have a pet. She got a cat to fill the void, but was soon looking for something more friendly and cuddly - enter Bart!
The second Mindy saw a picture of Bart on the Wags and Walks website, she knew he was the one. She was taken by his little ‘hooves’ - as she calls his paws - because they reminded her of the Grinch’s assistant, Max. At their meet and greet, Bart immediately let Mindy hold him and she knew he was going to be her little guy forever.
While potty training has had it’s challenges - Bart is a boy, so he likes to mark his territory - this is nothing in comparison to the love and joy he brings Mindy. Her favorite thing is the way Bart greets her after a long day; he stands on his hind legs, rubs his front two paws together, and wags his tail incessantly. Both of them are happiest in each other’s arms.
Bart has grown under the care of Mindy, too. While he used to be a little “growly” with other dogs, he’s become so much more social and friendly. Mindy is even making new friends around the neighborhood because everybody wants to stop to say hi to Bart!
The special bond Mindy and Bart share is irreplaceable. Her friends tease her for being obsessed, but she doesn’t care - he’s her best friend!
