Sooner was one of eight senior dogs we took in from a research facility that was shutting down. He was nine years old and had spent most of his years as a "flavor" tester.
Sooner was -- to say the least -- awfully shy. He was also nervous around other dogs since he'd spent most of his time in a cage by himself. During his time with us, he kept his distance from most other dogs but was gradually coming a little closer.
When Sooner was adopted, his name became Boomer; his new family wondered if he would ever settle in and become friends with their other dog. We were a little worried.
Well this week we received this picture of Boomer and his housemate. That's Boomer at the top of the picture with his head resting on his mate.
All is well.
We needn't have worried.
