Boo don't listen to the haters,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Boo: The Life of the World's Cutest Dog (Hardcover)
Boo is absolutely adorable! In todays world that is so negative it is nice to watch and follow such a precious little soul. I first heard about Boo when I purchased his calendar through Zazzle for both my Mom and myself. My Mom had a pomeranian who looked just like Boo, and she misses him very much. My dad died a few years ago, leaving my Mom in a financial mess and now she is loosing her home and is having the stress of trying to find a new home and place to live at age 70. She works anywhere from 12-14 hours a day, just to make ends meet. Just seeing Boo has brought such a smile to her face. I fill her in on his latest postings on Facebook and bring my computer over to show her the latest Boo video. I bought this book for my Mom, and she absolutely loved it. To those putting Boo down, saying he is just another Mr. Winkle, makes me sad. Yes Mr. Winkle is cute, but there is something special about Boo. There is room for both of them. I mean in Hollywood, we have more than just one beautiful actress. We ned as many Boos in the world right now that we can get. He is not just another cute dog. He has his own separate soul and adorable personality. I too have my own book out which required a whole lot of very hard work. I will never make the money that Boo will make on his, and I do not begrudge him one penny. I am very proud of him and wish him well and hope he kicks butt! For this little precious dog has brought happiness to someone important to me in this stressful world, and you can't put a price on that. So Boo, you just keep being you and ignore any haters.

Yes, there are many beautiful actresses in the world - AND millions of amazing dogs. That is why it is a crime that the creators of this book found one the exact same color and look as Mr. WInkle and gave it the exact same haircut. There were many other choices, but they chose to essentially copy someone else's original creation. It's disgusting.

Are you jealous of the dog or did his owner dump you or something? Mr. Winkle doesn't make my Mom happy, Boo does. So, we are sticking with Boo.

God bless you and your mom Aimee! Your love for her and for Boo are obviously from your heart, pure and sincere. I too lost my dad last December, just seven months after losing my brother. My mother is 86 and it's just the two of us now (I'm taking care of her and the finances). So I can certainly understand what you and your mother are going through. Your inner love is strong and will carry you and your mother through. Please don't let these negative commenters get you down. They obviously have personal issues to contend with, and are simply venting. Pay them no attention! BTW, I have a 3 1/2 year old Bichon Frise who kind of looks like Boo. He's half angel and half terrorist! He helps make life tolerable for my mother and myself. Hang in there Aimee and God bless you both!
