BOOMER



The phone rang yesterday afternoon, close to supper. I expected it was Fidel calling to see how I was doing since I had been sick the past few days. It was and it wasn't. It was Fidel, but he had sad news. Boomer died that afternoon. It was expected, but still not expected. Is death ever?

I am going to miss him because of what a beautiful creature I got to know him as. But I know Fidel is hurting. It can't be a great feeling ~ death of a friend coupled with a distance that didn't allow for a good bye to a best bud, living companion and SAR Tech partner for neigh 12 years. Boomer had to stay behind with M. when Fidel moved to start his medical studies.

I can't say much to his feats as a SAR Tech, or all that he and Fidel shared. In his early years as a horribly abandoned puppy, left to fend for himself, never could anyone believe that he would make it to almost 17 years of a really full beautiful life, without the saving grace of J&L & finally Fidel... Boomer was beautiful in my eyes.

I stumbled upon your blog and love it! And I too know the sorrow of losing a pet. I am so sorry to hear about your loss.
