Dearest Boomer, a.k.a. Cowboy Doubledeuce, Boom-Boom, Monkey, Crazy, and Pony, what a beautiful Paint Horse you are! You are gorgeous in all those great photos. And how sweet to see you and your dear lady nuzzling noses there. I'm so sorry you suddenly had to leave for the Rainbow Bridge, but you and she formed a bond of deep love that will last forever. What a life full of adventure and spirit you shared with her! You and she love each other very much, don't you, and you always will. What a delightful love-filled home you have shared!
Congratulations, darling Boomer, on being chosen today's Pet of the Day! We hope you and your dear lady and your brother TJ and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite treats. We know a wonderful party is going on at the Bridge in your honor!

Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.
