A Friday Farewell to BOLO

Tom: Today, all of us at The Poupounette would like to bid a sad but very fond farewell to our dear friend, BOLO, the Chinese Shar-Pei.

Bolo was one of the early friends we made on the Blogosphere and we loved his sweetness, zest for life, and love for his family. He was always such a happy (or HAP-PEI!) boy, enjoying a series of "Noseventures" with his Mom, Dad, and his very own Puppy.

Like every good dog, he realized that cuddles were very important:

When his "Puppy" was born, he became #1 buddy and supervisor.

Each year, he used to run the famed "Nosevember" contest which we always enjoyed entering. BOLO, we are really going to miss you. It all happened too quickly and it's just not fair. But we know there are lots of good guys over at the Bridge who are excited at the arrival of someone so very special, and we will see you again one of these days.


  1. Lovely tribute to a special guy.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  2. So very sorry for you loss and that of his family, What a cutie. We're not familiar with that breed of dog at all.

  3. We are sorry to hear you have lost a very good friend - please tell his Mum and Dad we are so sorry.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
