Dexter

Dexter

August 02, 2018

We adopted Dexter in May, 1999 from the Toronto Humane Society. When my husband and I brought him home, all we knew about him was that he was about 18 months old, his name was “Boo” and we were his third owner. We changed his name because he was so anxious and untrusting at first that it felt wrong to be saying “Boo” to him all the time!

Over the years, Dexter became best friends with our daughters (who came along after him) and loved his days at the cottage, where he could run free and jump in the lake. It was there that he spent his last long weekend when he was almost 15, in August 2012.
