In this episode I meet with Peter from Pennsylvania who tells me the story about his dog, Rocco, a Rottweiler with whom he developed a strong bond. They became best friends, but just at 3 years old, Rocco fell ill and they were unable to save him. Peter tells the touching story of their bond, how it developed, and how he has dealt with losing his pal. He discovered cherished emblems, which gave him the opportunity to always remember and keep his buddy with him always.
