On June 1, 2013, Higgins walked into to my home and my heart. He was part of the Ark 9 and when I first saw his photo I hoped that he could be mine. My prayers were answered and we had eight wonderful months together. He was an immediate favorite in the neighborhood. Higgins never met a human or a dog he didn’t befriend. Because he was a very laid back dog, we got a lot of kidding about our slow paced walks. Some people walk their dogs, Higgins and I meandered. He was my shadow, my comfort and my joy. I will carry him forever in my heart.
