Cristopher Irsfeld's tribute to his aging golden retriever, Angus, ("Tribute to a loyal friend", Oct. 6) brought pools of tears to my eyes.

Sitting in my living room surrounded by my three collies of various ages, I can truly feel his angst. I too have a furry friend that probably won't see the daffodils next spring. But the joy and companionship they bring throughout their too short lives compares to no other love or friendship we can experience.

It's just simply a unique thing. Mr. Irsfeld, enjoy every moment with your beloved dog, as will I. CHRISTINE JORDAN
