My dad & I both have a love of dogs. The standard data we always share back & forth: name, age, weight. Weight is always an important one as we love big dogs.
One summer he spent a week in New York for work. He met a beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog walking along the street. Of course he stopped to pet the dog, found out a little info, and learned the dog's name was Gucci. A few days later, in a different neighborhood, he saw Gucci again! Definitely a coincidence among 8 million people to run into the same dog twice. He yelled "Gucci," and of course the dog turned around, and Dad swears he recognized him.
Well....fast forward a few months later. I am in New York. I'm walking around & see a beautiful Bernese Mountain Dog. I walk up to pet it and ask the owner the dog's name. By now you can guess.......Gucci!!! It was so exciting, the poor owner was caught off guard when I explained "my dad knows your dog!" The owner of course had no idea who my dad was and thought I was a little nuts.

I always say when coincidences like this happen, it is a sign (from above, from God, from the universe, from positive energy-whatever you believe in) that you are exactly where you're supposed to be right now. Thankful for coincidences like Gucci!
