Bloopy The Red and White Boston
by Robert Hudson
Bloopy is an eight year old female red and white Boston Terrier, belonging to Evette who has a Facebook page for Bloopy fans!
The most common colors are black and white. Reds are not recognized in the show circuit for conformation, and you do not often see a red and white combination. As you can see in the photo, Bloopy has two different colored eyes!
“Originally the name was going to be Bluepy because of her blue eye.
Since she has only one blue eye, we thought she was a Blooper. Her full AKC call name is Little Bloopy Snowball,” Evette told me.
Bloopy the red and white Boston may not participate in the show arena, but she was a star in agility.
“I hate to have to say this. Bloopy has a hemi-vertebrae in her back. She is doing ok.
We had to retire Bloopy from Dog Agility due to this”.
“Bloopy is very well trained, she rarely gets in trouble. Bloopy and I did a lot of training together and it shows.”
Playtime For Bloopy The Red and White Boston
Bloopy knows how to have fun! “Bloopy loves to go hiking, swimming, sun bathing on the beach and fishing. She loves Fast Cat- that is her passion. Over all, Bloopy loves the sun rays that feel good on her back.” Boston Terriers generally do not like to swim, but do not tell Bloopy that!
According to Evette, Bloopy knows very well she is cute. “She always has been a Princess since a baby. I started Bloopy on Facebook when she was 5 1/2 months old and it took off.
I love everything about Bloopy. She is very very special. Her and I have so many achievements together. She will always be my special little girl.”
