"Lincoln is so special to me…I got him January 1, 2010 and that was just a few days after my best friend passed from adrenal cancer. Lincoln belonged to her. She was fighting, fighting it for a long time and toward the end, asked me if I could take care of Lincoln. And I told her that I would…it’s a cuddle fest now and Lincoln, he um, he’s like that gift that you never knew you needed. You know what I mean? He’s brought such great joy to my life and I think that my friend knew that. I really think that she knew that was going to happen…so having him around is definitely, you know, like having my best friend still around…I don’t know, it’s just nice. It’s a life changer for sure, having a dog."
