issue marks the one year anniversary of our newsletter.
By far the most popular segment of the newsletter, has
been Isham's Corner (plll...ease don't tell him!) with
the recipe section a close second. We hope that we
can continue to make you laugh, while providing you with
a little bit of Vermont. We would like to thank all of
you for your encouragement and support.

Hi Again Everyone
month, after some humiliating begging, I was
successful in getting permission to publish a
recipe for dogs instead of people. I received
many thanks and letters of congratulations from
my multi-legged friends. That got me thinking.
Many times I've heard the innkeepers (my bosses)
talk about letters they've received from prior
guests, as well as comments in the guest book;
full of praises, appreciation and gratitude. I
wondered why I hadn't, before now, received any
myself, especially since I work as hard as they
do to make everyone happy.
So I began sniffing around the house (something
I'm especially well equipped to do). Lo and
behold, hidden behind a book on cats, where I
wouldn't be expected to look, I found a large
cache of letters all addressed to me.
While modesty precludes my listing all of them,
pride propels me to share at least one of them
Dear Isham and Gizmo,
" I can't tell you the last time that I
have made such instant friends. I usually have
to go through the whole alpha thing, but you
guys were just cool without the whole routine .
I was really touched by the way you treated me
like a guest too! I'll never forget how Isham
wouldn't eat the bone my Dad gave him until I
got one too. (Score for me). Anyway, thank you
for being my friend.
Worf the Dog.The time may be right for my agent to
begin negotiations for a significant pay raise.
Till next month.
So long Leeba wherever you are.
