Congratulations on another fabulous edi- tion. I am enjoying reading it cover to cover. I wanted to introduce you to a Tampa-area animal hero. Valerie operates Home Sweet Home Animal Rescue of

There are no words for how much I LOVE Colleen Thompson’s painting of Mr. Spot. How wonderful that Colleen has had so many requests for portraits.

The whole thing has gone to Mr. Spot’s head more than I could have imagined. He has done several ‘guest appearances’ and it was clear he felt he was top dog. During his appearance at the Canine Cotillion he was more than tolerant of other dogs. I am told that the Westin Fort Lauderdale posted the cover and article on their Facebook page. There was also a nice article in the Pompano Pelican with the cover of The New Barker in the article. Sally Potter, Deerfield Beach, FL


We support dog friendly businesses, and it’s great to see them in The New Barker. It looks like most of Fisherman’s Village in Punta Gorda allows dogs in their stores and galleries (although dogs with happy tails might want to avoid the glass shops). I recently dined at Harpoon Harry’s, there with my husband, Dan and our three-year-old Greyhound, Stig (pic- tured far right). The food is great and the staff is very attentive to its canine clien- tele. I met Robin Bayne and Bou Bou, her 14-year-old toy Poodle there (pictured above). They have been coming to the restaurant since Bou Bou was a pup. He will be 15 in September. Sharon Tondreau, Masaryktown, FL

Congratulations on the latest issue. Lots of information and very visually appeal- ing. I did want to point out a couple of errors:


On page 81, you captioned the pic-


ture in the middle as “Buddy, the Dandie Dinmont Terrier.” This dog is not a Dandie Dinmont Terrier, but is a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (PBGV) which is in the Hound Group. On page 82, the picture captioned as


a Border Terrier is really a Norwich Terrier (Norwich has prick ears, Norfolk has drop ears). On that same page, the first picture in the set on the bottom is a Wirehaired


Dan and Stig in Punta Gorda. d

Fox Terrier, not a Wirehaired Terrier. (Fox Terriers come in Smooth and Wirehaired varieties in the Terrier Group as well as a Toy Fox Terrier in the Toy group (which is a smooth coated breed). The New Barker continues to


improve with each issue and I always look forward to reading it. Thanks for your dedication to dogs, owners, rescuers and everyone who just loves dogs. Norine E. Noonan, Live Oak Poodles
