Jack & Lucy

Dear Mr. Levin
Hello! How are you this New Year? I had to tell you your book was one of the sweetest things I have ever read! My husband bought me your book for Christmas. I also have rescue animals all 8 of them. About 4 years ago I fell and fractured my skull in 2 places. The doctors said I was lucky to be alive. Needless to say I had a long hard road to follow. My husband and children are the most wonderfull people God ever Created, But I had this fear and unease that I could not shake.

Well to make a long story short I started to foster for a Lab rescue here in Dayton. One day the Lady who runs the rescue called and asked me if I could possible take another dog for her, his owners were going to destroy him. He had went through a screen and was out of controll. (at this time I had 5 Lab puppies to care for) I was sick that people wolud kill an animal over a screen so I said not a problem, bring him home. Little did I relize he was comeing home for good. Well the man brought Jack to my store and dropped him off. As soon as I saw this big lug I fell in love, he just walked over and sat down next to me and looked up at me with those big brown eyes as if to say where have you been for the last 2 years. It might sound crazy to some people and maybe I am ,but this dog makes me feel safe. My fear and unease have all but left me.

I just wanted to tell you I understand how much you and your family love Sprite. I am not sure who needed who more- Jack or me. He comes to work every day with me and my husband . So does our 12 year old Beagle Lucy. He is the best friend I could have no matter how hard things get he loves me.
