Davis high school teacher, Mr. Phongsavath, gets the cutest puppy named Boba T. Phongsavath.
Early August, high school teacher, soccer coach, and father Soulivahn Phongsavath made the decision to let his family get a puppy. This decision was a very rewarding one, but also one that was challenging. It was not a unanimous vote. While most of his family wanted a puppy, Souli wasn’t 100% convinced. After serious consideration and deal-making, they finally agreed and got Boba, the Cavapoo.
“The compromise was that I would be able to pick the name”
There were a couple different options for names for the new family member. Souli wanted anything Taylor Swift or Kanye West related, but since all of the boys’ names in his family start with “B”, they went with Boba.
Souli got Boba because it would be good for the kids, but Boba quickly took a liking to one of the kids specifically, Souli’s daughter. He follows her around everywhere and she takes care of him. They’ve created such an amazing bond with each other that will last a lifetime.
Even though puppies can be hard to train, they are so rewarding and it feels like everything was worth it when you really start to love them. As you get to watch them grow up, you can see all the progress they’ve made and it’s truly amazing.
“Boba’s a part of the family and we love him.”
Though trying at times, puppies teach everyone so much and bring people together as families and friends. Everyone grows to love puppies and puppies love everyone back. Some more than others.
