PS: We still need money for the narcotic and annual training for our new dog. Keep those pennies and bills coming! They can be dropped off at Circle Bank or Novato Horse and Pet Supply. Checks can also be dropped off at the Police Station on Machin Avenue.

I suggested "Toni" in my submission. Here's hoping you take the suggestion as intended: in honor of your efforts to get the new police dog.
