It is with sadness and anticipation that I am announcing my retirement. Of course, I’ll always be available for my former students to offer a little advice.
My career has been so satisfying and fulfilled my dream of giving back what my first problem dog, SuSu, taught me. I have such fond memories of so many fine students and their wonderful dogs. Each and everyone of you have enriched my life.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 510.326.4597. I hope you will let me know how things are going off and on. I’ll always be interested in getting together – taking a walk, getting coffee – and catching up. I’ll always be happy to talk dog.
And so, I say farewell but not goodbye with a favorite quote.
"Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the sea comes the end of our fellowship in middle-earth.
Go in peace!”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Grey Havens, The Return of the King
