Four years ago, on October 4th, my mom had to say goodbye to Bagel. Bagel was mom's first dog and the canine love of her life; her doggy soulmate. She adopted Bagel from a shelter in the city where she went to professional school. Unfortunately, they only had three and a half years together before Bagel succumbed to heart disease.
On a happy note - October 4th is also my grandma's birthday - sending out a heartfelt Happy Birthday shout out to my grandmother Sue! Woof.
