Dear Lucy and Fredericka,
Sorry I have not sent you an update on Dexter. I have been out of town most of the year caring for my father and then he passed away in April. I am still trying to get back to normal and Dexter has been a great help in getting there.
I just want to take a few moments to describe Dexter and what he means to us. I personally have never had a dog that means so much to me. I have fallen in love with him and would be completely devastated if anything ever happened to him. He seems to know when I am feeling sad and will stay by my side all day. If Ethan, our 4 year old, starts to cry Dexter will run over to his side and just sit there until Ethan feels better. He is clumsy and entertains us all with his antics. My neighbors constantly call and ask if Dexter can come over to play. He loves to play soccer with all the kids, however, he thinks the ball is his so the kids are constantly having to chase him to get the ball.
Well, if you haven’t figured it out by now, we are totally in love with Dexter. As far as we are concerned American Mastiff’s are the best.
