Hi Nancy,
In the 6/15 N/L, Margaret from Tulsa submitted a link for Bacon Bites for Dogs. I was not able to access that page, and it appears it is from the 4/17/07 N/L. Would there be any way for you to reprint it in a current N/L?

I am certain Cassie, my Shih-Tzu and I would be most grateful.

Thanks and slurps from Cassie, Artemis in NYC
