NFT: Just want to show off my senior adopted dog Boomer

Jints in Carolina : 4/18/2017 2:42 pm
I recently adopted a lab/mix named Boomer who is 10 years old. They were going to put him down and I just could not allow that.

I have had him for a week and I just love this dude to death.

Here are some pics.

saw these on facebook, terrific. Reminds me of my pal Elvis who passed away October of 2015. Miss him like crazy but he lived a great life and passed at 15 years old

A collective beer on us from everyone here on BBI. What a handsome looking dog and good egg as his new owner!
Good for you!

We also have a rescue dog named Boomer. That was his name when we adopted.

Our oldest dog was at the point where they were going to put him to sleep when we rescued him. He was four at the time and he's been the best dog a person could want. He's 14 now and I know he's near the end of his life cycle. It'll be a sad day at our house when he goes.
change his name to...

Toomer. He won't notice.

Boomer was his name as well so no use changing it now. I really hope to have 4 good years with him. He is in excellent shape per the vet at his last checkup.
He looks like a good boy.

You have my.....

admiration and respect. What people do for animals says a lot about them in my opinion. And this says a lot about you!
I was just looking at meet Sean landeta.  
scouser : 4/18/2017 4:45 pm : link
Meeting Boomer is so much better. Good looking dog and congrats to you. What a great thing to do.
I have a lab as well...  
GuzzaBlue : 4/18/2017 4:46 pm : link
White English Lab.

Good for you and awesome looking dog! Glad to hear you took the pup rather than him being put down.

Mine if my first lab and he is a great dog. I take him everywhere with me (fishing, hiking, you name it).

you got it Paul!
I'll congratulate you on this great thing and raise you two...  
EdS56 : 4/18/2017 10:29 pm : link
as we have three rescues. It's strange at first, but after time you'll get a serious bond going. Then, you will want to get him a younger friend that will first piss him off, then will have as a great friend.

Rescues.... God bless the people who do this!

Awesome Jints - nothing better than a pup no matter the age. Good on you man.
He's a handsome rascal.

Some border collie (or similar herder) in the mix, maybe? Here's wishing you years of health and happiness together. And blessings on your head for a wonderful deed.
Bless you!
