Time Out: Boo

Yes, it's time to take a mini-break and note that the World's Cutest Dog resides on Facebook. In fact, this dog's presence on Facebook is possibly the best reason to join Facebook if you haven't all ready.  World got you down - go visit Boo.  And if "like" Boo on Facebook, from time to time he will come visit you.

Who is Boo?  Boo is a miniature Pomeranian with a fascinating haircut that makes him look like he's not actually a living dog, but a stuffed toy.  His "humans" are amazing in their photography and their witty twitter-sized status updates.  Just when you think you've seen all the cute Boo pics possible, they come out with this one:

"5 more minutes please," reads the caption on Facebook.
Pomeranians are known to be quite friendly and rather lively, which is pretty good considering they may have originally come from Germany.  According to the American Kennel Club the Pomeranian has been among the more popular dog breeds in the United States, consistently in the top 15 of registered AKC dog breeds over the last 10 years.  It is not known how many Pomeranians have the same barber as Boo, but if they do - the world may be going to hell in a hand basket, but at least it will be cuter.

Cool Boo.
Boo celebrates all the holidays and loves to dress up.  We've seen Trick or Treat Boo, Sleepy Boo,  New Year's Boo,  Cubs Fan Boo, and here, Cool Boo. Boo also has a social conscience and by stepping his little paw on an advertisement for a humanitarian effort, can fill the tip jar in seconds.

Perhaps the United States Congress should consult with Boo for his assistance in restoring the economy.  One Boo can launch a thousand ships, or perhaps in their case, raise a thousand million dollars.
What do we know about Boo?  Well, we know that Chicken, Cheese, Flowers, Grass and dirt are his favorite foods. Running outside, following around big bro, and his squeaky toy are his favorite games, wearing shirts is his favorite pastime, and his favorite color is pink.  He loves Oprah.  He's also a very obedient dog:

Yes, you too can be a friend of Boo.  You don't need to tell anyone (especially your own dog, or in my case, my own cat).  It's very easy - just join Facebook and click here.   Perhaps Boo is what we need for the Anglican Communion.  Imagine that everyone would have shown up in Ireland if Boo had been there.  If Boo joined the Archbishop of Canterbury on his global walk-abouts, Dr. Williams may still have to deal with the Communion travails, but at least people might smile at him.  Maybe Boo could even bring world peace.  
What the world needs is just a little more Boo.

In my youth Boo meant "marijuana". I guess it is now slang for "friend".

In my generation, Boo was a term of endearment, like calling someone honey or sweetie. I think some times children are called Boo (I can think of two right off that bat) and this little Boo seems very much like a beloved child in this household.:)

My dogs are raggedy and shaggy, they need baths, one's a gawky mutt of impenetrable genetic provenance who can look me in the eye when he stands on his hind legs to kiss me on the mouth (which he does whenever I come through the door) and the other is a purebred Russian army dog who tops out at around 110 pounds. they're both much cuter than this little thing (are we sure it's a dog?)

Boo is a SHIBA not a Pomeranian. He looks nothing like a Pom!
