Our Bonnie Lass


The first time I met Bonnie, I was seventeen and Peter and I had known each other only a few weeks.

Although we weren’t yet dating, Peter introduced me to his parents and his special pup during Parents’ Weekend at our school. I still remember the moment Bonnie ran to Peter, her new Amherst College collar jingling as she wiggled herself into his arms.


There’s a lot that’s been said and written about the bond between person and dog, but as with anything that can only be felt with the heart, this bond is unfathomable until you are privileged to witness it.



Bonnie, we miss you.
