Boddington: The adventure continues...
Angus Holly Boddington: A short history - A.H. Boddington or "Boddington" as he prefers was born on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. He was born on the same date as the famous Scottish Bard Robert Burns (January 25th). He is a Highland cow that comes from a small pasture in Minginish.
Never one to be content with chewing cud or talking politics with the other bovine, Boddington decided to make a name for himself by being the first Highland Cow to ever make a world tour. So with his mind made up; quick as a bug, he hopped into a box bound for America and ended up in a small store called "The Scottish Country Shop" where he sat on a shelf and was eventually donated to charity. He was placed into a cute basket with some candies and treats.
Although this was nice for a time, it was never what Boddington longed for, which was the open road. Luck would have it that Boddington met Mike (bagpypr) and Toni at the auction and they took him home. Boddington has a love for bagpipes, so it was fate when he met up with this chap named Mike. Mike is a member of the Portland Police Highland Guard, in Portland Oregon. Mike took Boddington for a ride in his Solstice and let's just say the rest is history. Boddington went for many rides in Bagpypr's GXP.
Bagpypr has a dog named Holly. Boddington and Holly got along famously. Boddington took "Holly" for his middle name. This was mainly due to Holly, being a German Sheperd, was too big to ride in the Solstice, so as homage to Holly, he took the middle name of "Holly" so that in a way, Holly would get to go wherever Boddington went.
