Mark–I bought Rescuing Sprite just days before we had our Airedale, Ginger, put to sleep. I had happened to read just a couple of sentences from your book and got the feeling that you had struggled about making the decision for Sprite, and that your words might have significance for us. It has been two months since Ginger left us; I finally got up the nerve to read your entire book today. Our political views could not be much more different, I believe, but your sadness affected me profoundly. Liberal or Conservative, we are all human, and it is true, dogs are the best.
