  1. We love reading good news and are glad to hear it. Keep defying those odds (because we canines like to defy the humans whenever we can). Oh, and by the way, don’t ignore Spicoli because we understand that kind of baked can be helpful with those owtcheosarkoma treatments.

  2. Oh! Dennis! I’m so glad you are still doing okay. Although, I admit you made Boomer and I cry some, well, lots really. I know seeing your friends again will be good, but crossing that bridge will be hard on those of us who love you. Anyway, you keep on keeping on…you have a huge fan base. Linda and Boomer

  3. It sure sounds like you are rolling with the punches, D. Ditto your mom and dada and the Vietnamese guys. Great update! Keep on keeping on. If anybody is meant to defy the odds (never tell me the odds), it’s YOU! #toughcookie OK. Bye.

    Love and licks,

  7. Dennis, we are so glad that you are able to keep up with your responsibilities as King of California. Responsibilities help keep us all happy that we can meet them and help keep us feel important so we can stay strong and meet those obligations. All Hail to King Dennis! May he live long and prosper.

  8. I’ll let you run with Tucker and me when you come… I guess you were Tucker’s friend first, but we are like twinsies there. The Spirit of Maggie the Vizsla
