    Lonnie, I really hope your comment is in jest.

    I'll tell you, nothing is sadder than getting rescue emails about 10- 12 yo dogs that are otherwise healthy whose owners have died and no one wants to adopt them due to fear of vet costs. I don't want my faithful companions ending up being PTS just because I was inconsiderate in planning for their futures w/o me. Anne

    I personally believe Lonnie is too stubborn to die anytime soon. However if the unthinkable happened there are numerous individuals that would be more than happy to care for his dogs. Myself included in the list.

    Anne,

    I was serious. Trust me, you wont get any emails asking you or anyone else to rescue my dogs. FYI, I dabble in estate planning and I have yet to have a client leave any portion of their respective estate to a pet. So perhaps I'm not alone and presumably among the vast majority of pet owners here in my geographic region. Would love to stay and further explain my religious beliefs and reasons for not including my pets in my will but lucked up and got off work early so I'm headed to the house to train.

    FYI

    If one of my kids behaved in public like one of my "faithful companions" did yesterday, they too would be disinherited. Off to give Jack, my not-so-faithful companion, a little sample of hades.
