My sweet gentle giant Boomer. I was lucky to rescue him when he was two, and he was my faithful companion over 10 great years, we hardly ever missed a walk. He let me foster other rescue dogs and was a good, patient mentor to the scared or nervous ones. Poor guy let me put funny hats on him and take pictures, so he was also patient with me. He liked to howl with us humans and he loved cheese. I miss him dearly. Thanks you Dr. Kelly Knoll for your compassion during a difficult time. Long may Boomer howl!
