Farewell, sweet boy

Note:  I wrote this almost 2 months ago to the day that Boomer was in the ER vet and I didn’t think he’d come home.  I’m very grateful for the 2 additional months we had together. It is very sad to share that Boomer crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. 

Ten years ago Boomer claimed me as his human. There were very few times over the past decade that I wasn’t under the watchful eye of Mr. B.  He was my constant companion.

Boomer touched many lives and made a lot of people smile during our nine years of therapy dog work. Oh, how he loved our visits to schools, libraries and CHOA to see the kids!  He was always ready to hop in the car and ride – just to be with his people.  He loved Chick-Fil-A nuggets and puppy sundaes from Brusters.  Nothing made him happier than being able to go back to bed after breakfast whenever I was off for school breaks.  He loved petting in all forms and wouldn’t hesitate to use the power of the paw to get what he wanted.

Boomer – you were such a great dog and a joy to have in the short time I was your chosen human.  Bye, Boomer!  Mommy loves you!
