Boomer is my lifeline. He's the reason I must get out of bed every morning, no matter all else. He needs to eliminate, he needs to be fed, he needs my attention regardless of all the reasons a human being wants to stay in bed.
Rain or shine. Hot or cold. Heartbroken or happy. Healthy or unhealthy. Boomer depends on me to live. I depend on Boomer to give me a reason to live. Simple as that.
What else do Boomer and I do for one another? Find out in When In Doubt, Pet the Dog, a column or blog feature or periodic memoir thingy on my author blog, Randy Boyd's Blocks:
