Teddy, the little black dog who asks for a home until his master, Lee Moore, Ph. M. 3/c, returns after the war, finds himself a very popular doggie. All kinds of answers have come from town and country, from near and far. One little boy whose dog was poisoned and whose father lost his life in France begn for the dog and here in part is another request for Teddy from Pella: "Dear Mr. Moore,
We, my mother, brother and myself would be happy to care for your dog if you would let us. We have two dogs now. I've had a dog ever since way back when.-----
My husband is in service and I'll have plenty of" time to care for your dog. Our dogs get plenty of good food and all tho companionship they need. Please, won't you let us keep your dog for you until you come home? Things wouldn't be so lonesome for me then, either. Please, Mr. Moore, let me have your dog. I'll writo you about him every week and we'll try to make him happy.
P. S.-The boys in our neigh-
borhood aren't mean to dogs.
No one is. They all like them,
Miss Marcella Griffin, aunt of Teddy's master, is grateful for the more than 35 responses she has had from the plea for a home for Teddy.-- t --""
