Abandoned Puppy Grows Up To Save Life of His Rescuer
DEAR ABBY: Re the flap about the “compassionate” farmer who promptly shot the mother beagle and her pup to put them out of their misery when they appeared at his door, hungry and half-dead from thirst and hunger:
Many years ago, my aunt trudged through the wind and snow one morning to her rural mailbox Upon opening it, she found a little black and white mongrel pup — sick and nearly frozen stiff. She took the little guy into her home, named him Tony, and nursed him back to health. Everyone thought she was crazy.
Twenty years later, on another cold, snowy winter night, old Tony, arthritic and hard of hearing, roused my aunt from a second story
bedroom and guided her to safety while her house burned down around them
When the firemen finally arrived, all that remained was the fireplace with its two story chimney, Tony and my aunt!
How s that for gratitude?
MARION BAYNE, LAS VEGAS, NEV
DEAR MARION: Beautiful! And it will please you and other readers to learn that the according to my most recent reader mail, the numbers have shifted dramatically in favor of attempting to nurse the dogs back to health as opposed to putting them out of their misers with a shotgun.
DEAR ABBY: Why is it that so many retirees (especially colonels) sign their names “John Jones, Col., Ret ”? What’s so great about being a retired colonel that this unimpor taut fact must be made known to all of us ordinary retirees?
JANE DOE, PH IX, RETIRED
DEAR JANE DOE: The fact that Mr. Jones is a retired colonel may he unimportant to you, but it's not unimportant to him. Rank is not easy to come by, and if he’s earned a chicken on his shoulder, let him crow — and take the chip off yours.
