A Happy Note

Almost a year after Zak died, I received a license renewal notice for him from Oakland Animal Control Services. One of the choices on the renewal form is "The dog is deceased or no longer owned by me." I checked that box, circled deceased, and drew a frowny face next to it, as I had been thinking a lot about Zak recently and was really missing him. About a week later I opened my mail to find a very sweet letter of condolence from the licensing manager at Oakland Animal Services. That a public servant working at an overwhelmed city agency took the time to send me a personal note touched me deeply. It is one of the nicest things anyone has done, not mention above and beyond the call of duty, so along with Miles & Jena (and Zak & Bean from beyond the Bridge), I send out big wags to Oakland Animal Contol!
Zak, always in my heart
