Boomer Will Beat Cancer

Boomer was diagnosed with extremely aggressive oral melanoma a few weeks ago. We are doing everything we can, while also considering quality of life for him. We're hoping we can get another year or two with him, but the initial prognosis was far less than that.

Instead of just paying medical bills, I wanted to try to do something else for him and for me before we lose him.

If you're still reading this, a quick reminder of Boomer's story: I adopted him in 2010. I had lost my first dog two months prior and was devastated. I didn't think I was ready for another dog, but found him on PetFinder at the Tahoe Vista Animal Shelter (since shut down). I called...after 5 minutes talking with the tech there, I knew...

He had been at the shelter for 6 months and no one wanted him. Found as a stray, he had clearly been badly abused.  The second I saw him, I said I wanted him, but I had already decided that.

He has been my constant, faithful, soulful companion ever since. He is MY dog, my baby. I'd like to help other dogs like him find loving care and homes...
