Dear Freddie,
I know that many of you have pets as cherished family members.  They definitely give us joy and make us laugh every day.
A few agents asked me recently how Ralphie is doing.  She is our little former California stray dog.
We are lucky that even thought she is probably around 11 years old, she is doing pretty well.  As a former street dog, we don't know for sure how old she is.   Every day exactly at her dinner time, she will come to find one of us to let us know it is time to feed her.  You could almost set your watch by her timing!

I'll give photo credit again to our neighbor, Angie, and her great pet photography service, Off-Leash Dog Photography.

Give your pet a hug, and Happy Selling!

Dave Emery
