Melvin is SO HAPPY!! The article about his herd and his life came out and it’s awesome…Lois Lane did a tremendous job writing the article! And just for the record…they still love her better than me…they ran right past me, AGAIN…….So without further ado…here it is! OOPS…One ” Ado”…If you would like to say hi to Melvin and Bob, I’m going to tell him where all of you Bob lovers are from..so feel free to say Howdy!

I just wanted you all to meet “Bob’s” Dad…Melvin.
I went to visit Melvin today and I took him his copy of the book about
his horse “Bob”..
It was a good moment and a sad moment…He told me pretty quickly that
his beloved cat “foot” had disappeared. Sadly, he is pretty sure that a friend
hit the cat and tried to hide the fact…so now he has lost his friend and “foot”.
I sat there with him and tried to hide the fact that I was crying…he’s almost
eighty-five and “foot” went everywhere with him…He waited for Melvin to
climb into his golf cart…then he would jump in too…he would ride to the barn
with Melvin, sit on a bale of hay to watch Melvin feed Bob and the rest
of the herd, and then ride back to the house in the golf cart with Melvin.
It was really hard to hear him talk about looking for “foot”…he had nursed him
back to health one winter when the cat almost died.
I’m glad that I went to visit him and I’ll try to get back to see him more often..
