I miss him already.
I got Boomer in 2001. He was a Christmas present from my Aunt Laura. Such a gentle soul! When we first got him, I got him certified as a therapy dog. We visited John Knox nursing home for several years, in fact until the kids came along.
When it got too hard to visit with kids, he was retired to our home.
He loved being inside! Boo was a big boy - 70 pounds at his best. But, if hair had weight, it would have been more! And, he was a true Collie. A baby to the core. Gentle as a flea, but sensitive to everything.
I sure did love this dog. I have cried to the point I will be Chinese in the morning, I'm sure. I wish I had some Preparation H...
Yes, I miss him already.
