I read your blog. I have an interesting favor for your blog - if you are willing. A friend of mine's dear friend passed away last week in Maine - apparently she died alone with her dog in the house and was discovered after her mail carrier called the police to let them know she hadn't picked up her mail a couple of days. So sad. The dog's name is Max - he is a six year-old field lab, black. Very good dog according to my friend - the poor pup!
He is currently at the humane society in or near Rockport, ME. I know you have a lot of readers and maybe one of them is not too far from ME and has been wanting a dog? Would you possibly be able to post something about this on your blog? My friend says people can email her for information - I'm sort of the messenger trying to help her out during this difficult time. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If this is too much to ask, I completely understand, but I thought I'd put it out there to help an animal who could use some love in a good home. Many thanks.
