A little Bodhi history

Bodhi and I spent about an hour at the park. His behavior has really improved over the last year, so it wasn’t as stressful as it used to be.

See, Bodhi is a rescue dog, and he spent a month at the Humane Society and then another three months at the Crossroads Shelter in Buffalo, MN. He was only about six months old when he was picked up (for the third time) by the dog pound. He was, his ex-owners said, “a runner.” He ran away one too many times and they refused to pick him up at the Humane Society.

When I got him, they told me his name was Charlie. When I called him by that name, however, he wouldn’t even look at me, so I changed it. I named him Bodhi for all the enlightenment he would surely bring to my life.

He was so calm when we first brought him home, in fact he spent most of his days sleeping. After about a week, however, his torpor disappeared and he became, frankly, a little nutty.

One of his favorite tricks was to run around crazily jumping on the furniture. You can see a short video of this over under the Flikr widget.
