As Bagel was about to step into the road, Davidson stopped and got out to make sure he didn't get hit by oncoming traffic. It came as a complete surprise to Davidson, however, when a woman exited a nearby house to call Bagel back inside an open gate leading to a yard.
The woman tried to brush Davidson away, but she was persistent in asking why the dog was so unhealthy. She recalled the foulness of the yard as though it were yesterday. "It was disgusting, poop everywhere," Davidson told The Dodo. "[Their] food and water bowls were filthy, the water was dirty. It was just horrible, and the poor pups smelled awful."
