I had to put our cocker spaniel, Snuggles, down on October 1, 2007. That was the worst day of my life and the hardest thing I ever had to do. Snuggles was 13 1/2 years old and has been with us since he was 3 months old. He got his name because he liked to snuggle. He had two knee operations. He had two mouth operations. The first was not too bad; the second was tough. We knew if the growth came back a third time there would not be anything else we could do for him. Sure enough nine weeks after the second operation he developed a tumor the size of a golf ball in his gland which also was attached to the inside of his mouth. I knew when I took him back to the vet that it was the end of a great friendship and love we shared with him. I still have my moments when I just start crying and we miss him very much. There are alot of good memories also which I try to focus on them. I know someday we will see him again. I heard about your book coming out a few days after we put him to sleep and I am looking forward to reading it . Hopefully it will help me get through this time of grief. Will write back as soon as I read the book.

Thank you,
