“My boyfriend and I had been discussing getting a dog and I took his kids into a store at Columbus Circle to buy him a Father’s Day present.
While we were shopping, he found the North Shore Animal League Adoption Truck.
He called me and said, you need to come out here as soon as you’re done because I want to show you something.
That something was Lola.
We all walked into the truck and there was lots of encouragement from the kids to get a dog.
It was a fairly impulsive buy.
That was a year ago, Father’s Day.”
