In April of 2020 my yellow lab, Bella (named after my active duty interpreter in 2005), passed away after 14 years. It was hard and we thought we wouldn't get another. In May of 2021, my wife came across a kennel that had a black lab puppy with a white star on its chest for sale. I don't remember the reason; but, my wife took the white star as a sign from Bella that we needed to buy this dog. We did. We named him Baxter and he has been the best dog we've ever had.
