“As the end was getting closer, I gave in and agreed to pick up Diego.
I changed my mind because my sister found a home for her other 2 dogs, pugs. My wife really wanted Diego, so I agreed to it.
I went up to Rochester before she went into hospice to say goodbye and I rented a car, got a crate and wanted to get out of there so quickly, that I got a speeding ticket.
Meanwhile, Diego didn’t know what was going on and started hyperventilating in the back. I would stop along the way to walk him, but nothing helped.”
