2 weeks ago, when mom was in Shanghai, she found out from the ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ that Badger a English bull terrier in Singapore needs to find a home quickly because his owner is moving to Germany for work and that Bullies are banned there. What is wrong with the Germans? Can’t they get along with the English?
The request came from a bull terrier breeder down in Australia and mom made contact with her. Mom was given the owner’s name and she promised to call when she returns home. She did and was told Badger has found a new home. Badger’s new owners love bullies and have one of their own too, called Toro. She provided the feedback to the breeder and since then has been hoping that Badger did indeed find himself a good home and that he will be loved. I can tell, she has been thinking of Badger heaps.
Then this morning something amazing happen………..….
…. Herbie’s and Helios’ mom called and told her that there are 2 bull terriers at the park (you see, it is quite a rare sight to see bull terriers anywhere, so when they are spotted, guess who get calls).
It was then 9am and poor me got ‘DRAAAAAG’ out of bed to go to the park and meet my kind.
Snoooooooooooooooooooooozing with my toy. Pleeeeeeeease don't wake me
It is not easy to drag me out from my beauty sleep. So in between that time, mom made several request of Auntie Sharon, 1) to ask the owner to wait so ‘we’ (I wished it was just ‘I’ not we) can rush to the park. Mom also has Auntie Sharon find out 2) if one of them is Badger (she said deep down inside, she has a very storng feeling that one of the bull terrier is Badger…… I think humans call this feeling - intuition).
Biiiiingo she was right, it is Badger. So, the more she want to go and meet him.
She drove like a crazy woman to the park - HEY, I didn't have a seat belt on.
Well, we met at the park, humans exchange numbers, and pictures were taken and the ‘you know who and who with which bull terrier and the you know how stubborn these bulls are, etc etc…
Toro, Moi and Badger
Pardon the 'space out' look Hey I not only look sleepy, I am sleepy. But I got loads of hugs from Badger’s new owner so I guess that made me a happy boy.
When we got back, I was given a treat for being a Good Boy and mom went to upload the pictures and send it to the breeder down in Australia and Badger’s owner.
Guess everyone is happy. I am particularly proud of my mom for following up. Bravo to her.
Now I can add 2 more bullies to my list of friends.
I am so glad Badger has found a loving home.
(I overheard my mom telling all my Aunties that now she has found a Bull Terrier breeder, she may consider having a puppy. I shall blame Helios)
