Dear Mark:
I was told that you read every letter sent to this forum for Dogs. I have a best friend of 15 years, she is a black lab named Dixie who is reaching the end of her life, I’m not sure I can do what I need to do, I do everything I can to prolong it, but as I watch her I know it will be soon. I don’t know if I should read “Rescuing Sprite” before or after, it will be hard to focus on the book through my tears should I wait till after. If I could cash in 15 years of my life to have her for another 15 years I would in a heartbeat!

I hope you don’t mind if I also sneak this in… My father was a WWII Navy veteran who served in Guadalcanal, along with his two brothers. Unfortunately I spent my teen years in the early 70’s surrounded by liberal friends who keep me from continuing the Navy honor with there mind wash of that era.

On Fridays when you play the music from all the services I hear the Navy “Anchors Away” song and I become proud of my father but disappointed in myself that I didn’t serve this country in the tradition of my father. If there were no age limit I would sigh up today.

Thank you for what you do and what you say

Gary from UT
