Introducing our new family member .... BOOMER!

First, I just want to say that our hearts and prayers are with the people of Japan. I can not imagine what they are all going through. The news reports get worse every time I hear them. I am praying, as I am sure we all are, that they avoid a nuclear disaster any larger than has already occurred.

Now, on with our happy news.  Timothy has been shopping for a puppy for a long time, and this past weekend he found the perfect friend. We went to our local animal shelter, which is brand new and very clean and nice, to look at a few puppies they had. One 5 month old lab/retriever mix really stood out as the perfect pet for him and the perfect fit for our family. He is a bundle of energy and full of love. He has only had one accident in the past 24 hours and already is doing pretty well with his crate. He is currently 29 pounds and a lovely shade of black with chocolate highlights.



  1. Well he certainly looks at home on the chair. Enjoy your new doggy.

  2. Awwwe what a sweet addition he is! I pray many blessings on good memories with him. May he be that something to love the CM writes about. Have fun with him. ((HUGS))

    Blessings and ((HUGS))
    In Him<><

  3. Cute dog! I'm more impressed with YOU though! I don't think I could handle a pet. *blush*

  4. LOL, Leslie -- This is Dawn's Mom and each of the children have a pet. That makes the family dog, Lady; Tim's dog, Boomer; plus a fancy rat, Buttercup; a gerbil, Snowflake; and a parakeet, Periwinkle! Blessings to all, Kathleen, Dawn's Mom
