Hello all and thank you for letting me join what I am sure is going to be an awesome group!!
My name is Jody and I live with my hubby and two children who are 8 and 9.
We live in Niagara Falls and have been proud parents to an adorable golden retriever w've named Boomer for 2 weeks now. Boomer is also welcomed by our other dog Maddie (2 year old yorkie-poo) and our 3 cats Bella, Mufasa, and Andy. Yes Andy is a wierd name for a cat but after bottle feeding him and his sister Bella for 8 weeks we were positive he was a girl and named him Orphan Anni lol util his first vet visit of course.
We sadly had to send our almost 14 year old matriarch of our family to the Rainbow Bridge 5 weeks ago today. She was a black flatcoat retriever and was my baby who I adopte at 8 weeks of age before I met my hubby and had my kids. She oversaw my wild days, my becoming a wife, and motherhood although she clesrly took on the mothering once the kids got here lol. Boomer was not to replace he, but to bring joy back in to the hose and the hearts of us all. I figure that he will be the childrens dog and hope they will know the love that I had watching him grow. Our Maddie is a lazy designer dog that would rather be carried than walk and looks at you like your nuts when you throw a ball or anything for that matter lol so Im thinking Boomer will give the kids the real dog experience lol
I am looking forward to sharing in Boomer's growth and getting to know all and your dogs as well
