I am so pleased to be able to let you know that the Vested Interest K-9s now have the funds to sponsor a K-9 Vest from the donations in memory of Ivan.
Here is what we need to do next:
1) Pick the dog to sponsor. Before Sandy left town this week, she let me know that there is a Massachusetts dog waiting that she has in mind. I expect to hear from her on Monday with the specifics about that dog
along with any others that you might want to consider for the sponsorship. She likes to move quickly, so is email the best way for me to be in touch, or would you like me to give you a call, or would you like to speak
to Sandy directly? Please let me know what you prefer.
2) In the meantime, I would like to confirm what you would like embroidered on the Vest…… One suggestion is: “In Memory of Alta-Tollhaus Ivan”
Up to two lines are allowed.
3) Can I get your address for both VIK-9’s and The Cape and Islands K-9 Relief Fund. I have asked them to please send acknowledgements for the donations directly to you….of course, as long as that is ok by you.
At the Relief Fund, I have been speaking with Joe Ambrossini over the last couple of months, and I just informed him that I am ready to send a donation that the friends and family of Alta-Tollhaus German Shepherds have contributed for the Relief Fund in Memory of Ivan.
I really wish I had a better flair for words, because I know this news must be very bittersweet. Ivan will never be forgotten, and he is dearly missed.
