Mark,I just finished reading Rescuing Sprite and many times I had to stop due to tears. I fear that this will be the last year for my beloved 11 year old beagle, Munroe. He is our third shelter dog. When we met him I held his little face in my hands(he was 6 months old at the time) and looked into his beautiful eyes and knew he was the one. He looks a bit like Sprite with the same coloring and curly spaniel-like hair around his neck. I dread the day we have to say goodbye, I don\’t know how to prepare myself. I know in my heart nothing can prepare me.  You wondered why anyone would care to read your story. It is because as dog lovers, we can relate to the pain you went through. Whether it be in the past or in the future, we all have to come to grips with saying goodbye to our own Sprite. Bless you all and bless Spritey.
