1993 - 2008

Boomer the Bassett Hound came into our family before our marriage, accepted the arrival of our 2 kids, moved with us through 8 houses, put up with 3 cats and a way too-playful Golden Retriever, shared space with a bunch of rats and ate a lot of pilfered people food. He was a great dog that provided his family with love, loyalty, humor, and goodwill combined with a sense of mischief and carefree misbehaving. Although he was an "old man" for much of his later life, he was ready and able to conquer the dog world as a youngster. He made our lives so much richer.
