Falkor and 9/11

I remember that morning like it was this morning. We all do. Life changed after that day. For us in America and for the world. It is hard to say exactly how things changed and how the generations born after this date are affected. I was a month young into the dog industry that day.

Calm blue skies, quiet roads, mom and daughter home when I arrived at their westport home. Falkor was my first doggie client. He was named after the famous Falkor from The Neverending Story. Should have known. That was the beginning of this long weird journey.

I remember the conversation we had about war and peace, change and the future. Somehow everyone dug in deep. I guess I dug in deep too. Fifteen years later here I am. Dogs.
