Dear Mark,
Many many many condolences to you &your family. your book was very very good.i had a Golden Retriever put down when he was 14 yrs. he is cremated and i will be mixed w/him when i die &be sprinkled in the pasture.He was one of the 7 Leader Dogs we raised. we got him back for stud reasons. we got to keep him!!!!!!!!! now i have a 14 year ole Cairn Terrier. If you write back please put karen ritter next to the Subject: line or it will get tossed. thankyou and GOD Bless You and your family.
I volunteer at Sanilac County Humane Society. which is a NON KILL SHELTER for cats and Dogs.that is where we adopted 3 of our 4 dogs. 2 ran away one day and 1 came back that had been shot(bow& arrow). the other found dead by our Lab-Shar Pai. some *^*^*^*^ hit him, didn’t report it and stole his new leather collar.the one shot survived and he is doing fine:) now we have an underground fence. thank you, karen ritter :) you are so rite about not having one Dog long enuf in your life.
A friend gave this to me and i give to you.maybe it will help you and others. “I explained to St. Peter, I’d rather stay here, Outside the pearly gate. I won’t be a nuisance, I won’t even bark, I’ll be bery patient and wait. I’ll be here, chewing on a celestial bone, No matter how long you may be. I’d miss you so much, if I went in alone, it woulkn’t be heaven for me.”
Karen from MI
