Darrell, Sandy and entire Klanchar family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will pray for your strength to get through this horrific time and for healing in the future. Mandy was such a good 1st mom to our Chi Ti (Webbie's sister). I still continue to tell people that Mandy is responsible for our Chi Ti being such a good dog. She did have her way with these dogs. Blessings, Karen (Melissa's mom)
