Bobby Humprey is a bodybuilder from Boonsboro, Maryland. He mostly spends his time at the gym and laying hardwood floors. He’s big and all manly. He finds small dogs to be feminine of some sort; he made fun of some friends who walk their girlfriends’ small dogs. Some may call him a “Big Dog Guy.”
Bobby and his wife owned three Rottweilers throughout the years of their 17-year-long marriage. They loved how intimidating Rottweilers look.
Bobby said that all the guys have egos, and they’re all insecure at heart. They tend to measure their masculinity with the competition of manliness. So even with dogs, he tends to prefer the big dogs over those cute little ones. He thought that small ones do not exude enough masculinity.
I have to say that it takes courage to be able to express that, so honest and vulnerable. I admire the man’s honesty.
Last 2016 on New Year’s Eve, he got his heart broken when his wife ended things between them. And after a week, he got his shoulders injured at the gym that led him to undergo reconstructive surgery. Due to painful circumstances, Bobby experienced depression.
He said that he was sensitive as a person, and his wife was his world. To remedy the situation, he started drinking. As time went on, he recovered from the injury, but his heart needs more recovery because depression is still there. He felt lost until he received an unexpected phone call that saved him from the darkness.
His friend named Constance Rogers requested him to take Lady (her dog) to stay with him for a while. He knew about Lady; it was a tiny Chihuahua who did not interest him.
As much as he wants to decline his friend’s request, he owed Constance for helping him during his darkest days. He agreed to watch the dog.
One day, while watching the dog, he saw Lady peering from her kennel. He decided to take her out of it, and when his friend came back, she was amazed that Lady was sitting on Bobby’s lap.
He fell in love with Lady; she made him feel alive. Lady saved him from misery. But he knew he still has to return Lady to her friend, so Bobby contemplated adopting a dog, but this time, he’d get himself a little dog.
He adopted one dog after the other; he saw the need to rescue the dogs that experience abuse and neglect. Before he knew it, he started a rescue with 37 dogs with him. His rescue grew so much that he realized this passion within him; he never knew existed.
Videos like this are so important because they show the different sides of dogs personalities as well as really showing how important certain members of the family are. Loki is normally standoffish and very timid around the larger members of the island. When they are outside in the Littles are free to play amongst themselves, awesome things happen. Notice who gets him out of his shell too. None other than my one man welcoming committee, Thor. His job is just more than greeting members when they first get here. He’s also in charge of the happiness for many of them if not all, both big and small. Especially for the Littles, he entices them to play where they normally wouldn’t feel comfortable. #bigguylittlesworld #myislandofmisfits #sanctuarysquad #tinygodofmischief #tinygodofthunder
