Hi Mary,

I guess this email is long past due, but I wanted to send a picture of me and Murphy. More than anything, I want to thank you. This dog has changed my life for the better. He is the most affectionate, understanding companion imaginable. He is my silent guardian, keeping watch over me when I sleep. Literally, I’ve woken up to find him lying between me and the door, assuming his natural position as protector. When we’re at the park, people coo over what a spectacular animal he is, and they often ask if it was a difficult task training him. Well, even though I devoted much time to his upbringing, I think part of it is his natural disposition as a confident, good dog.

I cannot thank you enough,
