I've gotten a lot of terrific letters regarding The Dogs Who Found Me. And then I got this email, which I mistakenly responded to. Now the guy won't leave me alone. If anyone knows a Brian Pederson in Nevada, this is what he spends him time with. And for those who may not have read my book, I actually say that all dogs bite, not that pit bulls don't. UGH:

Subject: you're TOO into dogs!
Ken Foster, I just finished reading The Dogs Who Found Me. Gee, you are SO into dogs. I half expected you to write that you'd rather be a dog than a person so you could have sex with your dog. You gush so much about loving dogs, you celebrate "anniversaries", they sleep in your bed. If you love dogs so much, why don't you marry one????
You wrote that your life would fall apart if you were ever dogless. Seriously?? Get a wife and kids, man, and you'll see how trivial dogs really are!
You wrote that when a pitbull bites a person and tastes human blood, it automatically knows it's doing wrong. Well please explain why a pair of loose pitbulls mauled the ears and face off a little boy who was out riding his new bicycle. Please explain another case of death by pitbulls when the animals KILLED the owner's boy. Apparently the stupid beasts were mating and they attacked the poor boy when he happened to enter the room. Of course, bleeding hearted pitbull saps rallied around the vicious beasts.
All this time you spend being concerned about dogs and wasting money at places like Three Dog Bakery could be spent helping people. You could be a Big Brother to a needy child. You could help kids to read, or teach illiterate adults to read. You could volunteer your time helping your own kind instead of these lower species, ugly dogs. Are you a misanthrope?
Did you know that a dog couldn't care less who its owner is? A trainer told a dog owner who thought the animal would pine away in his absence that the dog would forget he walked the earth in under a week if given sausage and steak by a new owner.
