It’s not quite a year yet, but as I blog on a cold winter morning with a sweet black-brown Lab mix dog cuddling by my side, I am remembering the very special January day that Bailey joined our family. After years of willing and praying a dog into our lives, Bridget’s dream of bringing a puppy home came true in a big, fun way a year ago this month.
The day we arrived at the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, NJ with hope of adopting a Lab/Spaniel mix puppy was the same day The Today Show arrived to film a segment on pet adoption. The stars aligned, Bridget and our family were featured, and we were able to take home the pup Bridget lovingly picked out long before the cameras started rolling. It was a good day, and it’s been a great year. We all love Bailey.
