Maggie and I are choosing to be happy this evening because of the kindness shown to us by the city’s dog license department. While sorting through files, I discovered Maggie’s dog license renewal form from 2012 which was never paid. I emailed the city and it was confirmed that her license had not been renewed for the past four years. I downloaded and filled out the form. After work I went to City Hall with my checkbook and rabies certificate expecting to pay a heavy fine. The manager took my circumstances into consideration and only charged the fee for the next two years when Maggie is due for her next rabies shot. Truly a reason to be happy!
