We found him four years ago on our cabin porch upon our arrival one weekend.. skin and bones, about 3 months old.. a crossbreed that I figured was a combination of the ten most popular breeds of that year. Weighing just about eight pounds at the time, he has since grown and become the most loyal, faithful, smelly breathed 110 lb. dog an owner could hope to find. When people meet Boomer (aka Boom-Boom), they are struck first by his size, then by all his other redeeming qualities. People often ask if he is a bear-cross, and until now I never thought he was ;), but after seeing his love for wild blackberries, I am having second thoughts.
