People can fail you. Computers, religions, employers,
philosophies, governments - they can all let you down....
Our canine companions
are constant, as they have been for tens of thousands of years. They know us,

They are the essence of non-judgemental love, whatever your nature may be.
Any creature is to be valued. Any that you establish a relationship with is a treasure. Any that, of their own free will, establish a bond with you -
make life worthwhile.
This is our attempt to tell the world what Boomer and
Alinak have brought into our life. In the grand scheme of things, these pages
will have no impact on anyone. Certainly there are other things that we might be
working to accomplish, yes? Maybe. Simply put though, it is something we have to

Alinak's personal data sheet
Nicknames: Al, Nakkers, Banana, WhooWhooMan & more.
Rescued: August 3rd, 1995 from the Winnemucca, Nevada animal shelter
(Hi Sherry & Pam). He was approximately one-year-old at that
time. We think that Al knew he was going to be our dog. We had
stopped by the animal shelter about one week before we actually
decided to get him. At that time, he was quiet, and just smiled at
us, while all of the other dogs were going crazy barking. When we
decided to get him, he seemed to recognise us, and came to the front
of the pen. Might be my imagination, but I think he knew he
was going with us.
Sign: We're guessing that he is a Leo (although he thinks he is an Aries,
with all of his head-butting).

Boomer's personal data sheet
Name: Boomer Von Garner
Nicknames: Boomer, Boom-Boom, Boomie, Boombox & Sir Harfs-A-Lot.
Rescued: December 1995, from the Winnemucca, Nevada animal
shelter. He kind of thought he was on vacation at the time. Was
happy enough to eat our Christmas treats and slurp some eggnog from an
unguarded cup on the coffee table; But after a while, it was
basically: "Well, thanks guys, you're nice people, and I've had fun,
now it's time to head back home. See ya!" Took us a while to track
him down. He had made his way back to his old home, which was was
about 5 miles away, through industrial and railroad yards, and the
trackless, barren wastes of (oh, wait, I'm thinking of some of the
casinos in Winnemucca, sorry)... Anyway, he did manage to find his way
home, but nobody was there. When they came home, there he was,
patiently waiting, covered in icicles.
Even then, we didn't get him back for a while, because shortly
after getting back to his old home he took off and started gallivanting
about the countryside with his doggie friends, and he wasn't seen
again for two days.
