Dobby Says Happy Holidays!

"I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH (first, for all the wonderful
wonderful and good work you all do) and for my DOBBY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He is JUST THE LIGHT OF MY LIFE. You cannot believe HOW MUCH happier I am
since he moved in with me. He is 'a piece of work' - flipping and flopping,
playing all the time - THE CUTEST ANIMAL IN THE WORLD.

He is such a doll. And soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo lovable. He is
just a 'love bug'. Last night (as he does every night when I go to bed), he
came up in bed with me, but, last night, instead of coming up to my face
right away and lying down beside me - he went to the foot of the bed and lay
across my feet. I could hear and feel him purring all the way up the bed.

Yesterday, I was holding him in front of the kitchen window (where he loves
to look out at the birds and trees) and I had the window a little open on
the bottom to get some fresh air (but, don't worry, OF COURSE, I have a full
screen on all the windows all the time, as well), but I was holding him and
we were both looking out the window and the cold air came through the bottom
and all I could think was - he could be out in this frigid cold and hungry
and huddled somewhere trying to keep himself warm - I started to cry. It
nearly broke my heart - to think that MY BABY could have been out there -
alone, hungry, cold - it truly nearly broke my heart.

I love him soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much. I (honestly) cannot
thank you folks enough for him. He has total control of my heart - that
little guy.

Anyway - take a look at the photos I took the other day - I put a Santa hat
on him just long enough to take these photos - he was NOT having it for any
longer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to wish you and your families and ALL THE GOOD FOLKS at
The Humane Society a wonderful holiday and THE BEST for 2011."

For Chance - In his Memory....

Nov. 15, 2009

Dear friends at the Humane Society,

I am writing this sad letter to let you know that our beloved Chance died on September 19th from pneumonia (which he caught at Tufts University whilst undergoing treatment there).
Although we still have our other two lovely dogs (one also from your shelter - Murray). Chance held a special place in our hearts as one of the best friends we have ever had.

I was told a sad tale by his handler and trainer, the day we picked him up, nine years ago, and have often thought over those years of your patience and kindness which enabled him to give such happiness & love to all who knew him. Although taken from us in middle age, he enjoyed the country life to the full, especially since he was part hound who loved the scent of the forest which we hiked every day together.

He filled our house with his unique and special spirit and he is sorely missed. Thank you all for enabling us to spend those wonderful years together & pleas accept this donation on his behalf.

Kind regards
H & E

p.s. I am sorry it has taken me so long to let you know about this but I have been too upset to write about it. Also at this time as my other two dogs Carver (formerly Murray) & Malfi are an elderly married couple I think it would be unfair to bring another dog into the mix, but as soon as that changes I will be coming to see you.
Thank you all
