I decided to give Boomer up, since it was not fair for him to be saddled with me. I’ve never had my own dog before, but I thought it might be interesting to try it. Well, I discovered that I don’t have the required patience/energy/dedication needed to tend to the needs of a young dog. He was a fine fellow, but I failed him as a companion/owner, I must admit. I didn’t have the energy to run with him, play with him, etc.
So, I found a nice fellow whose dad is in the Army and stationed at Fort Knox, south of Louisville. He lost his large canine friend recently and was in need of a good doggie as a replacement. I’m sure Boomer will do well in his new surroundings.
Farewell, good and faithful doggie!
