Readers' Pets For Bob
Do you have a big orange, shaggy dog who could be Bob? Then e-mail a gif or jpg of your dog to email@example.com, and we'll add him to our Bob the dog casting board. Please make sure you specify in the subject or body that your picture is for the Bob board on Pinterest.
This is Piper. She is 8 months old, and if she were male, she would be a perfect match for Bob. She loves to chase squirrels, butterflies, leaves, balls, squeaky toys and just about anything else. She loves to eat food off the floor when she's not supposed to. She will chew on just about anything and has eaten bank deposit slips and a cardboard box or two. Even though she is full of energy and quite silly sometimes, she is the best dog ever... despite her oral problems. :-)
This is Jake. He once ate an entire bag of Easter candy (don't worry, no chocolate and the vet said he'd be fine.) The only side effects were an over-energetic dog and some interesting colors in the backyard for the days following. Once he also stole a taco shell that was for dinner. He walked into the living room holding it gently in his mouth, and looking so proud. But like Bob, he’s too adorable to stay mad at him.
This is Diego. He's big, he's red, he eats couches and other questionable objects. He loves running in the park, drinking out of the toilet, sleeping in a bed, and helping his people finish their meals. He hasn't met another animal or person he doesn't love, except for Santa. Santa is scary. So are balloons for that matter. He recently adopted a black kitten named Jinx. Diego cleans Jinx obsessively, like any good Mom.
This is Chloe. She is a 1 year old Poodle/Terrier cross. She may not look like Bob but she embodies his spirit. Although she is less then 10 pounds, she has been known to knock people over in her greeting, she has regurgitated several socks, and the other day ate some Playdoh. This morning she had rainbow poop, now if that isn't Bob-like, what is? We also love the underbite.
This is Tambi. She definitely has the furry part down and we love the St. Bernard like face. Tambi is full of Bob personality. This picture was taken when she decided she wasn't done having fun, wouldn't budge any further, and had to be carried back to the car. Definitely sounds like a Bob move.
Gone, but never forgotten. This is Sedona, the inspiration for Bob. My daughter, Alex, was a Canine Companions for Independence puppy raiser in high school. Sedona had bad hips, and failed out of the program. He had an incredible personality, and we were sad that he wouldn't be a CCI dog, but we were overjoyed to keep him as a part of our family for many, many years.
