(journal #23:) Bagel (or Binky)
I love with all my heart a dog named Bagel (by me), Binky (by my mother), a beagle. He used to come and play with Sailor. We never knew his owner, but we knew he treated his dog badly, because every night, Bagel howled between about 12:00 and 12:30. We often had to let him in for the night. One day he developed a terrible eye infection. We had to take care of him. We rinsed his very swollen red and green eyes. One night we heard a man calling, "Bob", which happens to be my father's name! We figured out he must have been calling Bagel. We heard a cut off yelp from him. We saw him a little after that, but then he disappeared. He must have been taken to the dog pound.
