No French "word" today (in the traditional sense...), just great thanks, or remerciements.
Following the heartfelt responses that my family continues to receive, in response to yesterday's journal entry about our lost dog, I could not bear to leave you hanging on until tomorrow for the rest of the story.
For all of you who have written in asking for an immediate update, here is a big hint: the photo, above, was taken yesterday afternoon. The girl in the photo is our daughter, Jackie, and the paw she is holding issues from a slightly limping leg -- but a leg all the same!
Oh, how we love this leg and its lusty, loitering, Lolita at the other end! Never, dear girl, NEVER put us through this roller-coater lost-dog ride again!

Please check back tomorrow, when I will tell you the rest of the story (as well as give you an update about saviour Sam... or "Sam The Man"! (Oh yes! He is our "man", that Sam!) Meantime, thank you for your touching témoinages. I hope they have touched and given hope to others as they have us.
