Boomerang’s parents are going to start a new trend. Dual ownership! Yeah, it’s genius. He has two homes and it’s not because of a break-up followed by a custody battle. One set of owners are musicians and they travel a lot. They didn’t want to give the dog up so they sought out a 2nd owner. A stranger heard the word and thought it a wonderful idea. All have since become the best of friends (so much so that they have a pet sitter when they all travel together :-)).
I can attest to the benefits of this arrangement as “Boomie” (their nickname for him) is very well-rounded, very independent (he takes himself for walks and moves to the shoulder when an unknown car approaches) and an incredibly huggable pup.

Bandit & Kokopelli- 2008 SPCA calendar September June 12, 2007
I met Bandit & Kokopelli at Gemini Springs in Debary for our photo session. It is a beautiful dog park amongst old trees and plenty of brush to play in. They were certainly fun to work with we trekked all along the park munching on grass (well, I didn’t) and searching for lizards (I kind of helped on that one.)
Bandit is a 14 year old Lab/Terrier mix and the alpha dog when it comes to who gets a treat first. She also likes to soak her feet in the water bowl to cool off. Pedicures for everyone! A charming little lady and great companion.
Kokopelli is the younger Lab/Chow mix and critter hunter extraordinaire. When she sets her mind to finding anything reptilian, watch out, she’s unstoppable.
She loves her older sister and always lets her take the treat first. Such manners 🙂
Casey & Baxter- 2008 SPCA calendar June June 7, 2007
Casey is not into toys or balls (and she calls herself half lab- hmph!) and she has such a SWEET personality paired with melty eyes.
She also makes her legs into porkchops when she lies down which I always fancy.
Baxter is the more “mature” of the pair and borrows Casey’s ears once in a while to make sure he’s keeping up on the news. A true sweetheart with a wise soul and enjoys perpeptually circling the yard for whatever reason he did not tell me. 🙂
He also KIND OF looks like Jack Nicholson.
