Maedche and Rommel

Hi Mark,
Before your book came out, I listened to you every night and heard bits and pieces about the great story of Spritey! Each day I tried to focus more attention on my two Rottweilers, Maedche and Rommel. I think you are an angel, b/c on November 17th, I had to put my sweet baby girl, Maedche to sleep as I found out two days before that she had lymphoma spread throughout her body! As she was being put to sleep, I held her ihead in my arms and thanked her for being such a good dog! As I walked away, I thought that being an adult stinks, b/c prior to Maedche, I had never had to lose an animal as an adult. It was then that I empathized with my father as I remembered all our pets that had died. I am so grateful for those extra minutes I spent with her and credit those minutes to you. Losing maedche was a huge blow to my 5 year old son and me! It saddens me the most when he says he wishes for a huge ladder to go up to heaven and visit her! The week I lost her, I read your book and cried my eyes out! I, like you, was glad that I at least had my other dog Rommel to console me. He is a great big Alpha male and prior to losing Maedche I had never heard him whine. But, that is all he did for days after! Now that it has been almost 4 months, we are looking into adopting another Rottweiler. There are so mony dogs who need a good home, so hopefully we will be able to provide one for one lucky pup! Thank you again Mark for getting me through this most difficult time in my life!!!!!!!!
