I just finished reading your wonderful ode to Sprite. My dog Sadie looks so much like your Sprite. Like Sprite, Sadie was found wandering the streets malnourished but she had good manners. She followed me home from school one day and since then has always been my close companion. I have moved away from my family home and I miss her so much! She’s showing signs of old age but she’s a happy and loving dog. I just felt moved by your memoir of Sprite and wanted to thank you for your insights into the relationships of people and their pets.

Wishing you and your family the best of health.
