  1. I will pray for Spalding's safe return and, as a fellow handler, can only imagine the fear he and his handler must be feeling. Please let this graduate know he/she's in my prayers and to feel free to contact me via email if interested. I'm not sure if this graduate has my email address or not, but you can feel free to give it to him/her or vice versa; you know how to get in touch with me, so feel free to pass on the message. And please let me know if I can be of any help, even if it means just to listen.

    Wags,
    A&S (Class OR182)
