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