Boomer's world from his own viewpoint,,,,
Hello! My name is Boomer. Well, actually my full name is "Bob's Baby Boomer" but everyone calls me Boomer. It's much easier that way!
I just turned a year old the end of January 2003, and although that sounds young, with my hip problems I feel much older. I live in a household with many loving friends. Besides my owners, Linda and Bob, I have another dog friend, Rama, who is a 14 yr. old cocker spaniel mix. He is fun to play with, but he isn't in such good health so I have to be careful with him. I also have four - yes, count 'em FOUR - felines to harrass. Some of them try to play with me, others just hiss and spit at me. But I really like chasing them thru the house. It's great fun!
My owners are trying their best to get me the surgery I need to survive. I am taking glucosamine (Glyco-flex) and a ligament supplement, Ligaplex, which helps a lot. So far I don't have to take any prescription medicines like Rimadyl, but that may come later. I run in the yard, play Frisbee (but I don't jump!), and chase squirrels and birds - but unfortunately I haven't caught any yet.
My big job is going with my owner Bob to help him with his newspaper delivery. I keep him company, guard him and his van, and I greet his customers and their dogs. I have made a lot of friends that way and I think it's great fun riding around the countryside all night!
Isn't this a great picture? That's me and Rama - in those ridiculous Santa hats. With us is our other owner, Linda, whom you will note does NOT have a ridiculous hat. Anyway, Christmas was a great time - all those packages to tear open and all that paper and debris to strew around the house and play with - even the cats loved it!
