Jim tells the story of how Roland joined the family:
“On July 4th, 1993 My son Ron was working in a grocery store in San Jose when someone dropped this little puppy off near the door. When his shift was over, he brought the puppy home, as he was pretty sure it was a black Lab. We named the dog Roland, after the TV fisherman Roland Martin, since Ron was pretty heavy into fishing at the time.”
Jim and Roland: best buds.
“As Roland grew up, it became obvious that he wasn’t all Lab, as his legs stopped growing.”
