"In one way or another all of these people contributed to the completion of this book, and I would like to thank them: My parents, Martha and Anthony, for having me and believing in me,
My in-laws, Rose and George, for feeding me while I wrote this, The Walls Family, who kept me chuckling through 5 years of carpooling together, And the following people for laughing with me:
John O'Donnell, Randy Vance, Joe Koziel, Eric Deckers, Susan Nason, Midge Pandoli, Flo, Kelly, Greg, and Rob Mason
and all the participants in Cetlink's dachshund chat, whose puppies provided endless motivation for this book, especially Jessica Young and Therese Fuhrman,
and Dilbert's Scott Adams for answering my email questions about the humor field."
