“I came home from medical school and in some sort of twisted way, having Dipper in this pitiful situation, took me out of the misery that I was experiencing in school.
I refocused on family and the things that made me happier before my med school misery.
Then of course, Dipper made a miraculous recovery.
He was able to put med school in perspective, and stick around afterwards.
Now is not a good time for me to get a dog, but I hope my parents choose to get another dog once Dipper is gone.”
