Hi Mary,

Today is Helga’s 10th birthday. She is in excellent health with no problems whatsoever. I’m so crazy about her. I want to thank you again for making it possible for me to have her. She is still my working service dog and has always slept with me at night.

We are together always (excepting surgeries on me!). When I must be in the hospital I have a close neighbor and friend over to sit with Helga in my house and then they sleep together in my bed. Then Helga comes to see me in the hospital every day. Right now I have recovered from a surgery from seven weeks ago. All is well and calm in our household.

Once again,

Thank you.
