in which the "no third dog rule" is happily thrown away: introducing boomer!

This handsome boy is Boomer, the newest addition to our family. I saw him a couple of times outside the library, scrounging food. He was quiet and meek, friendly but very cautious. A library regular -- the person who used to have Cookie -- told me folks have been calling him Boomer. Allan and I couldn't agree on a different name, so Boomer he is. He's less than a year old. I'm guestimating seven to nine months; we'll know more after his first visit to the vet in a few days. It's likely that...

Well, blah, blah, blah. Lots of reasons for doing little photography. The view from my window looking down below. I...
