A Personal Thank-You to Parents, Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni—F.O.D.s All!

Thank you for visiting Daybook Davidson. This blog post, along with the rest of the Daybook Davidson site, has been archived and no new stories are being added to the site. Please consider visiting the online version of the Davidson Journal to find similar stories about Davidson College, alumni, and members of the campus community.

I am touched and humbled by how many readers—parents in particular, as well as faculty, students, staff and alumni Friends of Dodger—have come up to me in the last two days to express their personal sympathy on the sudden loss in January of my best friend, Dodger the dog. Thank you, old friends I’ve not seen in a long while and new friends I’ve only just met. Thank you.

We keep Dodger’s Wildcat bowl on top of the fridge and use if for all occasional canine visitors to College Communications, hooray!

It’s not yet quite time for me to get my next dog/editorial assistant. (If I’m ever completely out of the running for a “next dog,” just take me on down around back and shoot me.) In the meantime, do keep reading this one alumnus staff writer’s take on the continuing adventures of this fine place, right here on Daybook. You can subscribe by email at right and/or you can like Daybook on Facebook.

Do keep reading, I should say, and viewing and listening and clicking all over the place on our new and improved website homepage and social media hub, as well as the Davidson Journal!

And vive the wide open spirit of Dodger the squirrel-chasing fool dog, and of all the inquiring minds and bodies and hearts and souls—human and canine—that have enlivened and continue to enliven this place.

With deep gratitude and a “Forward!” shout,
