Living up to the name

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

We got Boinks from the shelter while we were doing dog fostering. Here’s an excerpt on how she came to be called Boinka from back then:

9 pm: The Saint is so weak and unsteady on her feet that she has been falling on her big, sweet face all day. It reminds me of a bloopers show with the “Boink” sound effect, so I’ve been following her all day ridiculously saying, “Boink.” It’s starting to stick, so we’ve named her Boinka.

It’s a bit bittersweet now to see her unsteady on her feet once again, and hard  to hold back the urge to say “Boink” when she faceplants into the carpet or grass. Ok, mom’s getting teary now.

Here’s the story of her first few days with us.

    I love that story, thanks, we were wondering how that came about.

    After my amputation, when I was learning the ropes I got the nickname “Mister Stumbles.” It was a good way for my pawrents to shed some humor on the situation. I really didn’t mind at all!
