If there’s a special dog in your life, Boomer U wants to hear about it

Baby boomers, has a dog changed your life? Bringing companionship to an empty nest, keeping you active, providing laughter and friendship just when you needed it most?

Or perhaps you have a service dog who helps you through the day, or gives you a chance to help and comfort others. The Spokesman-Review would like to publish a few short stories about what dogs mean in the lives of Boomer U readers.

Send us up to 250 words paying tribute to your canine friend. If you’d like, attach a photo. Email your tribute to dogstories@spokesman.com. The submission deadline is April 30.

Include your full name, mailing address and daytime phone number so we can reach you. We’ll publish the best stories in Boomer U, on May 20. We reserve the right to edit.
