MESSAGES FROM FRIENDS:

What can I say? Thank you for sharing Marvin with us. We are sorry for your loss. --Scrunchy, Mr.T, Tina, & Chris Hammack, California

I'm so sorry to hear about Marvin. This must be a very sad time for you. It is a shame our pets lives are so much shorter then ours. But on the other hand we can love so many of them in one lifetime and that is very special. You are both an inspiration to me and I appreciate what you do. Peace and safe travels -- Dina Hrezik, New York

I hope you are doing well. I am sad to hear about Marvin. When I got last month's newsletter, I was wondering about him and how he was doing. I knew that he could no longer be a "spring chicken", since I met him 10 years ago!
But I searched your site, and didn't see anything about him, so I figured he was still okay. His 16 years was a good, long life, and filled with more adventure than most people ever see! He touched many people, including me, and I'll never forget him. --Ron & Pam Robertson, Arizona

 

We're sad to hear of Marvin's passing. I have fond memories of the short time Mac, Marvin and I sat together on the curb in St Helen's, OR a few years back. A picture on your web site captures the moment. Now, Mac and I have just begun to fulltime in our new (used 02 Dutch Star DP) motor home. We will always be grateful for the inspiration you gave us, including the quiet words Marvin, the road dog must have whispered to Mac, since he seems to know more about living on the road than I do. We just want you to know we're thinking of you. --Mike Fousie and Mac, Oregon

 

He was a wonderful little guy. I'll keep that image in my mind of his grinning face in the wind and I'll always remember his fast little tongue when he had kissing on his mind. Also, I appreciated the various little hiding places that he would find for himself. I'm thinking of one in particular right now: At Mom and Dad's house over by the pool, bougainvillea, and geraniums -- he fashioned a nice shady hole in the dirt there one time and it looked quite comfy. --Diana Sedenquist, California

 

We are so sorry to hear about Marvin. We don't have any dogs since our last ones left us in tears for days after they died. Animals are family, and it's so sad when they go. Marvin became special to all of us who have been following your stories. -- Leigh and Sharon Wilcox, Oregon

 

Thanks so much for the latest info on Marvin the Road Dog. I've loved his inclusion in your stories since the "Beginning". My condolences on your loss and I hope there will be a Marvin,jr to fill the hole he left. --Lynne Wiley, California

 

We are so sorry to read of Marvin's earthly passing. He was a funny and compassionate dog, and we always enjoyed reading of his adventures on the road. It is tough to lose a friend; the furry friends are sometimes missed more than the two-legged kind. We hope - should you decide to welcome another puppy into your lives - that you will see bits of Marvin's personality in your new road companion. I said to Gary that I had asked about Marvin when we spoke to Megan briefly at the AG. I'm glad I did because just asking about Marvin lit Megan's face with a smile. --Gail Skvarenina & Gary Maycroft, Arizona

 

Read with great sadness your note about Marvin tonight. What a wonderful companion he was for you guys. He always made me smile when I saw him or read about him and I'm sure gave you guys great comfort and a sense of family out on the road. --Steve and Liz Kapur, Pennsylvania

 

Please accept my sympathies on the loss of Marvin. I had just asked Megan about him at the Mensa AG about a month ago and it's sad that he has left you and us. I remember him fondly when we visited the Phoenix or the NicoVan. --Bob Abrahams, California
