Speaker, Author, 80s Pop Culture Guy and Dog Dad to Bodhi
Thanks to Wonder Paws Rescue, last year on August 9th, this totally awesome knucklehead, Bodhi came into my life. The work that they did to save him is just incredible. He was named Austin, but I renamed him Bodhi after Patrick Swayze’s character from the movie Point Break. Also, not a coincidence that Bodhi means awakening, referring to perfect wisdom in Buddhism. He was likely a day away from dying as he laid there on the Miami streets longing for someone to save him. He was malnourished, couldn’t walk, covered in bugs, couldn’t go to the bathroom and covered in wounds all over his body yet his will to live prevailed. A couple of Miami police officers found him and turned him into Wonder Paws who basically brought Bodhi back to life through extensive medical care and surgeries.
