Woof! Have you noticed that it is gettin’ cooler out? I wuv cooler weather; after all, my great-great-grandfather roamed the mountains of Tibet where there is this white thing called, snow. Now, I haven’t had the chance to meet this snow thing, I understand I might enjoy it. Hey Mom! When can I meet snow? (off in the background, “Mr MaGoo where do you come up with these questions?”) The cooler temps get me paw-thinking about my beloved Betty Boop, she didn’t like the cold.
Do you know about my beloved Betty Boop? Mom and I wrote several chapters about her in our book; Betty Boop inspired us to write and share our bootiful story. Did you ever get a chance to meet Boo, too? Furiends, gather around as I am going to share with you about two angels with paws, Betty Boop and Boo. You see, they both were born with (ummm, go need to “goo”-gle it) hydrocephalus, “water on the brain”. And furiends, together, they are uniting the world and raising awareness for our furiends that have special needs; how those with special needs give back unconditionally and teach humans so much about life and themselves. Excuse me, my eyes are leaking…ok back, had to get the piece of dirt out..yeah, that is my story and I am sticking my kibble on it.
When a pup has hydrocephalus, most of the time, they are born that way. It is a neurological disease in which there is excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the ventricular system of the brain. Both males and females are equally affected. Woofee, I need to go an take a nap after digging around for that. This thing, CSF, bathes, protects, and circulates through parts of the brain and coverings and is then absorbed into the circulatory system. For my sister, CSF was so much, that her skull never closed and she had this soft spot on the top of her head. Mom always protected her little head and I was right there to help, making sure she didn’t bump her head.
Now, you may be paw tapping as to why is this important to know? Because just like Mom, Boo’s Mom, Diane; gave unconditional love, both ensuring all medical needs were met, daily comforts of life were given; and showered with them with love until Rainbow Bridge. Furiends, what is more paw-mazing, Betty Boop and Boo continue to inspire and touch lives, showing the world that when humans open up their hearts and allow love in from all, the pawonderful things happen to the world.
As Mom once told me, “Betty Boop reminds us all that life is a gift and love is our most precious possession.” Do you agree? Has your life been touched by a special angel? Visit Boo’s page on FaceBook; Betty Boop’s Miracle is available on Kindle
Still have dust in my eyes, they are still leaking..off to go and dry my eyes.
