Catfish the Boston Terrier
They call me Catfish.
I’m a middle-aged bully breed dog. I’m a Boston Terrier.
My snub-nosed breed is known for being friendly and gentle. We make great family pets.
In fact, this bug-eyed dog has spent a lot of days in the company of schoolchildren under the supervision of my bus drivin’ human (aka Crystal’s aunt Sandy).
I love kids almost as much as I love gemstone-studded collars.
It’s hard to believe that anyone could have a problem with Boston Terriers. But as relatives of other bulldogs, including our much maligned cousins the pit bulls, we do face occasional discrimination.
A few years ago, the New York City Housing Authority tried to ban Boston Terriers.
And until late last year, the Central Missouri Humane Society had a 20-year-old policy against adopting out bully breed dogs, including my kind.
Ain’t that just crazy?
