Dear Friends at New Skete,


We thoroughly enjoyed the "Art of Living with Your Dog" conference.  Thank you for the depth of knowledge and understanding which you made so readily available to us.  Thank you for your gracious hospitality.  We felt entirely welcome and at ease.  Thank you for all the hard work and logistical considerations that resulted in a seamless, well-coordinated conference.  Thank you for the preparation that went into the excellent presentations.  And thank you for feeding us so well!

Your friends in Kentucky
