I had the pleasure of meeting this little munchkin and her human mama at last weekend’s dog parade in J.P. One of the many delights of doing this blog, is that I get to regularly hear love stories about humans and their dogs. But I find myself particularly touched by this human-dog pair.
About this J.P.Dog:
Baci is a rescued 13 year old Mini Pomeranian. “Baci was 10 years old when I rescued her. Being an older dog with considerable digestive and dental issues, her chances for finding a forever home weren’t good. When I looked at her, all I saw was perfection. I did not adopt her out of pity. I simply just fell in love with her on the spot.”(Continue for more photos)
About this J.P. dog’s human:
Baci lives with her human, Belinda, and her feline sister, Cookie, “a 13 year old rescued Persian Cat who looks like her twin.” The three of them live near Centre Street where Belinda has lived for the last eight years.
Because of Baci’s digestive issues, Belinda was inspired to create special Baci-safe treats. Baci and other dogs loved the treats so much that Belinda started her own business, Baci Naturals, a holistic / organic dog product company. They make innovative grain free edibles from local sustainable sources, and other eco-friendly products for dogs.
Does your J.P. Dog have any funny quirks, odd behaviors, or defining characteristics?
Baci is the friendliest dog I have ever known. She literally goes over to strangers, adults and kids alike, and kisses/licks them. Hence the name “Baci” which means “ many kisses” in Italian.
What do you love most about your J.P. Dog?
I love her open heart, her love of nature and her love of life in general. Plus the fact she has never displayed any anger or hostility towards anyone…just sweetness and love.
Your J.P. Dog’s favorite outdoor spots in J.P.?
Hmmm that’s tough but I would say anywhere there is an open sprawling grassy area where she can run free like a lil’ psycho!
Anything else you’d like to share about your J.P. Dog?
Baci is a miracle in my life and it’s a priceless gift to have her love and trust and to share a life with her. Everyday with her is a blessing.
