NAMES: Boomer and Riley OWNER: MC Schneider HOW THEY MET: Boomer came from a breeder in Westminster and Riley from a breeder in Mount Airy. AGE: Boomer is almost 8, and Riley is 2. HOME: Hampstead BREED: Boomer is a Black American Field Lab and Riley is a Yellow English Lab BEST TRICK: Both dogs bark at my neighbor's deck until she comes out and throws ice cubes to them. I think it is annoying, but the neighbor thinks it's fun. FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Playing with the tennis balls (they're Labs, after all). FAVORITE FOOD: Pupperoni treats and Beggin Strips. Also anything that Mom forgets to move to a safe place, like inside the microwave. FUNNIEST MOMENT: Roughhousing, they sound like seals or walruses. IF BOOMER AND RILEY HAD A MOTTO FOR LIFE, IT WOULD BE: Play hard, especially in the snow, and cuddle with Mom whenever possible -- she is the one that controls the food.
