Hello BLRR,

Back in 1999 I worked with Nicole Soyster at the Penn State University animal diagnostic lab, at PSU’s main campus. During that time I fostered and very shortly thereafter adopted a black lab through Brookline. Her name at the time was Missy and then changed to Violet when I adopted her. In fact I still have a copy of the adoption paperwork.

She had been my best pal for the last 13 years and we’ve lived and traveled all over the country together. Unfortunately time caught up with her and we said goodby on Saturday (May, 2012). I just wanted to pass along this information as a thank you for all of the wonderful years and joy Violet brought to me and my family
