Dear Dr. Carol, How in the WORLD do you have time to hand-write such a lovely note of sympathy, you big Sweetheart? To even think of sending it is what goes to my heart! What a special person you are, dear Carol — and how FORTUNATE all of us, four-legged and upright alike, to have you care for us and about us . . . THANK YOU, Dr. Carol, our Hero.
Losing our Presley is still so hard on us that our mourning seems to go on and on, though, of course, Time lessens the weight of the pain. But Hell, I wish we could just snap our fingers and bring that Baby General Presley back here right now! Everyone must feel exactly as we do. Poor Benny, our other Mastiff, mourned in his own way, for about two or three days — and then he regressed and became the happiest, little 250-lb. puppy you have ever seen, Carol. I kid you not! He is still acting somewhat “young” and silly-cute. Whether he has adopted Presley’s habits or he has gone back to experience a childhood he never got to have (we rescued him from a horrid home!), I don’t know. Whatever it is, he is ever so darling!!!
We all send you love and many, many happy wishes! XXXX OOOO
Cheryl, Benny, and Family
