Mark, I just finished reading Sprite. Thanks for that sweet tribute to a good dog. I too have been a lifelong dog lover and owner. I’ve had to put down 2 of my beloved poodles, one at the ripe age of 16, the other at the tender age of 20 months due to a severe and rapidly moving neurological disorder that took her from a dog of whom the vert said “I don’t see anything wrong” on Friday, to a dog paralysed from the neck down and in severe pain Sunday night. We also lost a dog to theft.

Blessings to you and your family, -Rick
