In October 2008, my first dog, a black lab named Maxine was hit by a car and killed instantly. To say I was devastated was an understatement. She was my first baby before I had my first human baby. She was my best friend.
The next month, Bonnie ended up with a black lab at the shelter, a senior boy who was found wandering the highway. I had no intentions of getting another dog so soon but just had to meet him. He was lumpy, bumpy and grey faced. I knew I had to take him home :) I called him “Miles”.
He lived for the next two years knowing that he was wanted and loved. It was meant to be!
