Jeff Adams of Festus said his late dog, Boomer, was easygoing, but he kept watch over his family.
“He was a typical basset hound-beagle mix,” said Adams, a sales rep for the Leader. “He loved to lay around the house.
“He knew all the family members. He was very protective of us.”
However, if Boomer decided a visitor was OK, he would quickly warm up to the person.
“If he knew you were a dog lover, he’d walk up to you and be friends with you automatically,” Adams said. “Boomer loved my dad, who’d visit us now and then.”
Boomer died a few years ago, at age 11.
He loved to hang out on the back porch, lying in his favorite chair – an outdoor patio loveseat, Adams said.
“That was his spot,” Adams said. “Whenever we were outside, he wanted to be with us.”
Boomer is missed, Adams said.
“We enjoyed Boomer.”
