Thank you so much for all you did for us. Since you were too old and arthritic to go for walks you warmed my feet while I typed endless pages. You listened carefully while I read pages out loud to check how they sounded and you never once complained. You shall be missed! So I also say to you…
Goodbye old friend! Patient and kind – funny and playful. You were the best dog ever! Thank you for sharing your life with us. You cleaned up food under high-chairs and only dug under the deck – sparing the rest of the yard. You loved to wrestle, chase and play tug-of-war. When we threw a ball to fetch, you would bring it back once and then look at us like we were dumb! “Hey, I brought it to you once! What’s wrong with you? If you want it back, you go get it! Goofy humans.” You had a great doggie smile and an expressive face. We love you buddy!

I always write from the heart. My characters have pets because my family does too. Thank you Jesse for the inspiration you contributed to my books!
