How Sea Lions are Like Boston Terriers.

Or vice versa.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

They yawn.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

Really BIG yawns.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

They scratch.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

And snuggle.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

…when forced.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

They play bitey face.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

But without the big teeth.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

They love a good sun spot.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

Just like BTs.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

They like to swim.

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

Oh…

How Sea Lions are Just Like Puppies

And bounce big rubber balls on their noses.

Sea lions do that, right?

I LOVE it! So cute a post!

Do you know why those funny sea lions are there? I lived there in the Bay area pre 1989 earthquake when those docks were filled with sailboats and the like. After the earthquake, the sea lions came in and took over. The owner of the docks and the boaters were not too happy and were discussing ways to get rid of the sea lions. Before they could do anything about it, however, it was realized that those sea lions were drawing visitors and money back to San Francisco and that they should stay. They’ve been there ever since and have become quite the attraction!

Well, that and seeing the pictures of your fantastic scrapbook room! I’m wondering if it always looks that neat and organized though :)

Love it, you are so right! We have 2 bostons and they really are like seals. We just had a litter of 5, and of course, I can not keep them all, but we are keeping a adorable baby boy, so excited. My father is taking one and so is my daughter. Family get togethers with 5 Bostons under the age of 3, PRICELESS! Enjoy your babies, they are a treat to see on your blog!

Okay our bostie will NOT swim. He will snort his way to shore, and float on a noodle (IF he is wearing his lifejacket)but will not swim or put his paw in the water voluntarily! I just ran across this blog and already love it. Boston’s are the best!

Our Bostons hate the water as well! Have to agree, Boston’s are the best.

Mary Anne October 14, 2010 at 4:18 pm

I love this comparison…very creative. But, one thing I have experienced is that I’ve never had a Boston that liked the water. It amazes me that yours do. In fact, our last one accidentally fell off a 9 ft. dock and went straight down to the bottom! Thankfully, my husband made a heroic rescue and saved him (but our dog was never the same and died 2 months later.) Our new Boston is also petrified of the water and I was told that bulldogs are the only breed that can’t swim due to their muscular makeup. But then I see your Bostons in water and that dispels that truth!
This is my favorite post though! I love those BT’s!

Your Boston’s are adorable.. We have a Boston also [her name is Lola]. Although I am wondering how your little ones came to like water? Our Boston is almost 2yrs old and have tried getting her used to the water. Have even brought her in the pool, and although she does know how to swim, she just wants nothing to do with it. Is this something you guys experienced at all or did they automatically enjoy the water right off the bat?
