Pixie & Bowie: Tale of Two Boisterous Bostons!

Published:

My studio is on the second floor; it’s light and roomy. My two studio Bostons add life and color and so much cheeky energy to this space of creativity and serenity.

 

Pixie and Bowie (Boston terriers and partners in crime) keep me company every day while I think, sketch, and sew. They are cuddle monsters and absolutely not morning dogs. I am usually already up and working when I hear eight little paws slowly come up the stairs. They sleepwalk right into their big “igloo,” where they both fit very comfortably. I usually get a few moments of peace, trying to stay busy, as I know that soon enough, they will be awake and energized as they pop their heads out of the basket, restless, jumpy, and have a look as if to say, “Playtime right now, lady!” The minute I give in and stand up, they get crazy, whine, and jump around in circles.

 

 

That is the sign it’s time for Mr. Squeak, a random red rubber squeaky toy they go catnip for. When I throw it into the backyard, Bowie is off like lightning. Pixie stays behind, keeping a focused eye on Bowie. The second he has it in his mouth, Pixie’s on her way towards him. They fight over it for a while. Pixie, being the Alpha she is, takes it from him and brings it back to me. Same pattern, every time. This is the chemistry, the pecking order between them, and they both seem very happy and content this way.

Soon after moving to Western North Carolina, Pixie moved in with us. She was just a puppy, but she is an old soul and has such a funny grumpy personality, and her love of food is legendary. We felt she needed a companion, and the following year, Bowie joined our family. A Boston as well, but with a very different temperament: skittish and juvenile and quick like a bunny. He has one blue and one brown eye. These two are the ultimate dream team, and it’s quite touching how much they love and care for each other. They are very conscientious watchdogs and put on quite a show when the doorbell rings.

They can definitely be a handful at times, dying for love, play and attention just as I get heavily into a project, but they add so much life and humor to my days, and I never feel alone. Without these two, the studio would be a lot less lively and atmospheric …
