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.
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
