When we went to pick out a rescue dog in 2006 I asked for an “older, sweet dog who’s struggling here”. They brought out Bounder. At 3 or 4 years old, “Boog” was just that, a sweetie who just wanted to be somebody’s dog. He stuck to me like glue and remained that way until the end (maybe a little less ‘stuck’, but definitely within eyesight.) Bounder was a bit of a loner when it came to other dogs and preferred to stick around us humans. He could sense even the slightest shift of emotion in both me and Mike and knew exactly when to offer comfort. Mike says that Bounder helped teach him so much about love. It doesn’t feel real that he is gone. We miss his fuzzy face, but know that he is now forever bounding in the sun. We love you baby boy.
