More About Bumble Bee

I’ve heard people say they are living, “Their Best Life” and often wondered if this was true. Meeting Bumble Bee will convince you it IS possible, and he will show you how it’s done! Snoozing in the sunshine is one of his favorite things along with romping and puppy zooming in his fenced yard. Licking a loved one’s hand, playing keep away and pretending he’s invisible are also at the top of his list. He is a happy boy and loves his life. These may seem like simple things to you and me, but they are his world. You see, Bumble Bee is a very special boy. When he looks at his loved one, his eyes wonder a little and it appears he is “Star Gazing”. He may be licking a hand and then continue to lick the air. Sometimes, he gets so excited that it makes him sneeze and stumble a bit. Fluttering may be the right word! He spends a lot of time napping because he gets tired easily. Bumble Bee’s life is one of simple pleasures but don’t tell him that!

P.S. Bumble Bee says, “Buzz, Buzz. Am I the perfect boy for you? I’ll be waiting with love in my heart and sunshine on my back.”

UPDATE 5/9/2024: Hey Folks, Bumble Bee here with the latest buzz about me! I’m really loving my life in my foster home. I get to chase my foster siblings, and sometimes I pass on the side, and they don’t even see me glide by. I love to run and jump, do zoomies around the tree, and bounce at my foster mom. I pretend she can’t see me then when I bounce at her she runs away in surprise. It is great fun! I try to bounce at my foster siblings but they’re not sure how to play with me. They treat me very gently.

I’m a simple guy with simple needs. I would love to live in a temperate climate where I can spend lots of time in the great outdoors. I amuse myself by sniffing flowers, watching butterflies and bees flutter by, and snoozing in the sun. I even like to be outside in the gentle rain even though it makes my hair curly! I’m relaxed enough now to allow my foster mom to snuggle me. She’s been wanting to ever since I got here but I wasn’t sure if it would be a good thing. Turns out I like it. She rocks me to sleep, and I tuck in with my nose in between her arm and body.

Do you happen to live in a sunny clime, have a rocking chair and think you would like to earn my trust? Then I would like to get to know you. Foster Mom says that even though my trust is hard to win, when I give it, it’s a gift.

Butterfly kisses,
Bumble Bee

UPDATE 3/5/2024: Bumble Bee here with the latest buzzzzz on me! I have settled into my foster home and really like it here. I am learning my name and am also working on sitting down when my foster mom leashes me up. I get to spend lots of time outside and I love running and doing circles in the yard. I will even run up to foster mom and nudge her leg and play growl. Learning to play is fun and I’m really having a great time. I’ve figured out when it’s time to be fed and get very excited. I bounce with anticipation of a tasty meal and always eat it all. I sleep quietly in my x pen at night and nap frequently during the day. Foster mom says I’m a very sweet boy who dances to the beat of a different drum. Hmmm, I don’t hear any drums!

Now, down to business. I’m looking for a home that understands my special needs and behaviors. I can’t do stairs so would need a lift to go outside. I need to be kept in a safe place where I know my surroundings and won’t get lost, scared or hurt. I don’t like to be cuddled but love for someone to sit on the floor and let me sniff, nuzzle and lick them. Giving me chin and chest skritchies while I lick someone’s hand is one of my favorite things. Think you got what I need? Well, I’ll be waiting right here with lots of licks and zoomies to share.
