Dear Mark,

On the second night of Passover we lost our Yellow Lab mix, Bailey. She had been w/ us since before all our kids were born. As a matter of fact, she knew we were pregnant before we did. I (Brian) had hoped to have more time w/o out a pet. However, I knew I was in trouble when my wife, Roberta, started looking at pet adoption websites. Well, she found a dog at the Henderson County shelter. She then asked each of the kids if they wanted a dog. I was out voted 4-1. We went and got Pancake, who we renamed Sandy. She is a year old Yellow Lab mix and we think maybe some chocolate added in. Our timing could not have been more perfect. The shelter is not a no-kill and had we not rescued her, she would have been euthanized the next day. I should let you know that Sarah is my 8 year old and wanted me to write this. Sorry I don’t have any pictures.

Thank you for all you do.

Brian from NC
