Lucy's best friend was Bogart the Boxer. He is a huge brindle boxer. Since she passed away last year, he still looks for her when he comes to the house. They did lots of stuff together and we called them the "odd couple". Bogart is 11. He had a near fatal episode of heart failure in Aug. His Mum and Dad took him to a Cardiac Vet who placed him on medication, is doing better now. Boxer's like basset have average life expectancy of 12 years.
