I just finished Rescuing Sprite and I think you did an awesome job writing this book. It really touched home with me because I had a German Shorthair Pointer named Brandee who had a growth on her neck that turned out to be cancer. We had it removed and they told us it may come back in 5 years and sure enough it did.
The vet told us she was too old to operate on again. At that point is was about 16 yrs old. She got more sick quickly until the tumor burst and sent infection into her system. We had to put her down and it was one of the hardest things my family has ever had to do. I teared up several times reading about Sprite because it brought me back to when we had Brandee. She truely was a part of our family.
It took us 5 years before my husband would say yes to another dog. We now have a very sweet Minature Schnauzer named Callie who is very dear in our heart. She is 6 years old now and we hope we have her around for several years. Thank you so much for your book and all the inspiring emails in the back. No one can truely understand how hard it is to lose one of your best friends until you have to go through it.
God Bless you and your family,
Cindy from OR
