Just like I enjoy predicting who the TV show Bachelor will choose out of all the prospects, sometimes I like to guess if our fosters will end up with anyone we know. He did remind me so much of a certain dog crush from our SociaBulls walks, but I wasn't sure if they were looking for another pup...
Here is Boris's--now Radar's--story of how they met the perfect match:
Our perfect match: adult, easy-going, well-adjusted, connected and eager to please male. A dog who would be happy to join us on adventures, but with a good off switch for lounging about the house. He would be a playmate and companion for Maria, but respectful of her both on account of her age and her queen of the universe tendencies. Happy, silly and a good snuggler with bonus points for cute.
Enter Bachelor Boris.

Maria would love a look-alike brother, wouldn’t she?

He looks adorable. We could let him meet up with Roo [Maria’s nickname] sometime and see where it goes. ;) If we were to adopt him, maybe we could make him some ear extensions?
(Maria is perplexed by Radar's 'bat ears')We asked a lot of questions about Boris during that Sunday’s Sociabulls walk. After the walk we introduced the two potential life mates. Everyone was smitten.

Hi A! Thanks for visiting yesterday; it was great to see you both. Just wanted to let you know that we talked it over and think Boris would be a great fit.
His goofy, sweet nature is the other half to Maria’s sassy personality. He continues to charm us with his silly antics and makes friends wherever he goes. Most importantly, he fulfills all the major points on the perfect-for-us list and adds a whole lotta happy to our house. We are so glad to make Boris, now Radar, a part of our family.

Maria and their family. And the best part is, we will still get to see him on SociaBulls walks!
PS. Our favorite memory with Boris
