Dear Editor,

I have a dog named Indy. He’s a poodle shih-tzu mix who weighs 17 pounds. Indy has never met anyone he didn’t like. He doesn’t care what color skin you have, what religion you are, your political affiliation or your gender. He’ll come up to you, his tail furiously wagging above his back and a big doggy smile on his face; seeking only a friendly pat on his head.
