Day two of our trip to Montana was full of driving from Missoula to Whitefish. Our first stop was The National Bison Range. According to my research it was best to visit in the morning as the animals would be most active during that time. Little did I know that would include Boomer as well!
This is the story of how Boomer and I met.
We all do things we are not proud of. For me, it was dating a guy who I will refer to going forward on this blog as Drama Papa. The name is fitting, he is a dad and he is overly dramatic. We dated for years and deep down I always knew it would never work out. I will not go into the details as to why because I am to blame just as much as he is. I could have walked away but I stayed for years longer than necessary.
As the years went by we drifted more and more apart. I was feeling neglected and under appreciated which is always a fantastic feeling. When you are in a situation where you know things are not going to turn out, sometimes people do crazy things. A common reaction to fixing relationship problems is to have a child to help save the relationship. Or trap the other person, depending on how you want to look at it. It turns out that I am not a fan of having kids so that was not going to be an option. There was something that I knew could help me however. Something that would give me unquestionable love, faithful companionship and would always be there for me. I got on the internet, looked up our local animal shelter and searched for a new friend.
