Meet Boomer

This is Boomer, Frank and Nancy's 2 year old Golden. Boomer is already a legend in his neighborhood. I've been wanting to snap a couple of pictures of this handsome boy for some time now, but kept forgetting my camera (I'm usually on my bicycle). He is a very good boy and pretty mellow for a 2 year old. Today I had my camera AND Boomer showed me how he contributed a lot of his dog hair for the mama humming bird below to build her nest (the palm tree is about 3 feet from his right shoulder in the picture above). There are two little bitty eggs in there. It's a miracle I could lift the palm branch and grab her image. Boomer assured her it would be OK. He watches over that hummingbird family like its his own. You gotta admit, he looks pretty serious in this picture!! I think its just his Clint Eastwood squinting in the sun look. "So, you think you're gonna disturb my hummingbird nest?....well, do ya PUNK"?

Boomer is such a handsome fellow and, well, what can we say about the good taste of Ms. Hummingbird to use Boomer's gorgeous hair to line her nest.

Oh my! 2 of my favorite things....meeting new doggies and watching hummers! I have 5 feeders out and I think my pair is nesting in the Pyracantha.
Please keep us posted on this beautiful hummer family!

Boomer is a much better Golden than I am. I would eat the birds (I love to catch and eat them). Mom says it isn't one of my better qualities!

Wags and Kisses,
Wrigley
