Guffy’s Story, or more on RTF history week.
Dave Wolfe emailed me this and asked me to start a thread. It is / was in a file that he could not get onto RTF. I also was unable to cut the text out of it so in frustration I simply printed out and copied back in the pages. I know, I know, there had to be a better way but I was furmungled by it. So anyway here is a very cool and inspiring tail of a black lab named Guffy. Enjoy, and like the last time not the best for the telephone RTFers. Go full screen once you are at work.
Their was a great story in D U magazine about 15 or 20 yrs about a dog
named mcGuffy. The dog and his owner were in a wreck, both were hurt.
Vet wanted to put dog down. owner didn't. Dog won a national
championship a year later. Is this story published any where or would DU republish this story
