About Us
Beukeboom, the Pet of the Day
Name: Beukeboom
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Shar-pei
Home: Stamford, Connecticut, USA
   Beukeboom was named after the defense man of the New York Rangers hockey team Jeff Beukeboom. He acquired his name during the exciting year of the playoffs, when the Rangers were really doing well. Jeff Beukeboom was hitting hard that game and we kept yelling his name. Every time my dog heard the name Beukeboom he would jump up as if we were calling him, so it was then that I decided we would call him "Beukeboom."

    Beukeboom has the greatest personality. He thinks he is human sometimes. I think of him as my son and he is a big part of my life. He has many health problems and I have invested a lot of money to keep him healthy, but every dime is worth it.

    His hobbies are going for walks, chasing squirrels and birds and rough housing with our bulldog "Charlie Bubba." He hates strangers coming around the house at night and what he hates the most is to take a bath.
