Brosa's One Year Birthday Party!

This is Brosa, and yesterday was his one year birthday party! Brosa has appeared on the blog before - when I went to a bowling tourament for the SPCA, he was there and I took a few photos of him because he's so beautiful - so he got quite a bit of coverage. As well, he's got some spots on the internet as well, if you want to check him out on Dogster, his profile is at - Brosa - and he's also a star on the Clicker Leash website as well!
He's come a long way - Brosa was born with a cleft lip and a severely cleft palate. He needed to be tube fed and came to Boxer Rescues of Atlantic Canada at 4 days old and was tube fed by Lee Anne Tibbo down in Cape Breton.This is what he looked like when he was that age - not much to look at, eh? So he's come a long way - thank dog for good rescues! Boxer rescue in Atlantic Canada makes it's money by selling collars that are expertly made by Lee Anne - you should check them out at
Soo back to the party - this is Buttercup waiting patiently to get up into her basket yesterday - she had NO interest in playing in mud - we went to the Eddie Leblanc baseball diamond in Lower Sackville for the fun - and it was a mud pit. Bobby was headed toward where the excitement was.
This is some of the owners who had been obligingly herded up into a circle by the dogs - it's good to keep the dogs happy!
This is a foster puppy from border collie rescue, a rescue jack russell named Mick owned by Michelle who does dalmation rescue,Bobby, and Fudge - an actual dalmation!
And this is Fudge the dalmation and his brother Mick - isn't Fudge beautiful? Fudge has been on the blog before with his human brother - we used to see them all the time when we used to go to Seaview Park
This was a cane corso who's name was, guess what - Kano! And a puggle named Harley, and a border collie named Scully, who I guess had a thing for Harley's neck!
This is a ringer for Charlie who's name is Bullet who was going around leaning on humans and I think was trying to sideways hump dogs, but I'm not quite sure what he was trying to do to the dogs! haha!
This white dog and his owner were just walking by, and the dog REALLY wanted to come in and play, so his owner let him in for a minute - and boy did he have fun for the minute he was there - he was SO happy to play!
Brosa's birthday cake from the 3 Dog Bakery
And this was Bobby trying to eat his piece of cake - but other dogs kept coming over and stealing his piece because he's such a delicate eater, and because I had a huge camera and Buttercup in a holster I couldn't protect him well enough, which is funny - because he's horribly food aggressive. Poor Bobby!
Harley and Scully again - I'd say they are great friends, because they were tending to hang out a lot - see next photo -
See what I mean? This was Kano with Marley the boston terrier mix trying to get at a frisbee - and Harley trying to decide if he was going to get in on the action.
This is Lisa - Mom to Brosa - modelling the latest fashions in mud gear - carrying the birthday cake - the dog in the shot's name is Nari.
This is Mick the jack russell again with Brosa being a crazy boxer
This is Marley the boston terrier mix - she's one of those ball crazy dogs who loves the chuck-it.
Nari is another chuck-it lover
This is Nari again with her sister Kya seeming to want to take a chunk out of her thigh
And lastly - we'll finish off with Bobby, parading around being cock of the walk.


  1. Awesome recap - thanks for being a part of the day Joan! :)

  2. Happy Birthday, Brosa!! You won't remember me, but I had the pleasure of your company driving with you as far as Amherst!
    You are a true miracle boy!

    Kudos to your pawsome foster Mom, Lee Anne - and your adoptive Mom, Lisa!

    I've got nothing much to say, simply that I love seeing photos of happy dogs. Makes me happy enough to want to sideways hump, too, lol.

  4. We had the pleasure of watching this lil cutey grow up and now celebrate his 1st birthday. We had a wonderful time and can't wait for the 2nd. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROSA

    Nice to see you there Joan. Glad Buttercup and Bobby brought you along :)

  5. Thanks TDL! You played a big part in his journey too. :)

    P.S. It was Harley the Puggle's 2nd birthday the day before!

  6. Bullet is my sideways humper. He loves to be with other dogs and gets so excited that some body parts want to work but he don't know what to do with them lol
