I hope to read your books!

Hi Dina!

I hope you get to read my Sparky and Dexter books, too! And you know what? Since we're all stuck in the house and can't go to school or anything, I'll send you some books for free!! Just have your parents e-mail me at rarruzza@optonline.net, and we'll set it all up.

All the best,

Rick

Hey
Hey love love

Hey Cool!!

It sure is a lousy day here in Stamford, CT. All rainy, windy and cold. Dexter is stuck in the house. He'd rather be out in the backyard running around or laying on the porch in the sunshine!

Take care,

Rick

Hi Jim!

Thanks for checking in! Hope you're enjoying your time off from school. Are you doing your homework? I know it can get a little boring at home all the time. I think Dexter is a little bored. He misses visiting the schools and meeting all the kids!

Thanks for writing,

Rick

are you going to make another sparky book.

Hi Cora,

Well, I don't plan to write another book about Sparky. After she passed away, I wrote "Sparky's Wonderful Life," which is a true story about her life, and that was the final Sparky book for me.

However, I do plan to write at least one more book about Dexter, and I might use Sparky as a character in that book.

So, no more "Sparky" books, but Sparky may show up in a future Dexter book!

Thanks for the great question,

Rick

Will you get more dogs?

Hi Alice!

That's a great question! Nobody has ever asked me that before.

But we probably won't get another dog while we have Dexter. One dog is more than enough, especially since we also have to take care of Speedy the Tortoise every day.

We walk Dexter twice a day in his neighborhood, once in the morning and once at night. And I don't think I'd be able to walk two dogs at once! I tried it once when I was taking care of my son David's dog named Kai, and I had to quit even before I got down the driveway! Dexter kept going in one direction, and Kai kept going in the other direction, and their leashes kept getting all tangled up! I ended up having to walk them one at a time. It was crazy!

And don't even get me started about trying to feed two dogs at once! With Kai, he kept trying to eat Dexter's food!!

Thanks again for the great question!

Hi Isabella!

Oreo is a great name for your Japanese chin!! We had a hamster once that we named Oreo for the same reason, it was black and white!

And tell Oreo that Dexter says Hi! (woof, woof!)

who is stronger dexter or sparky

Hi Steven,

Well, both Dexter and Sparky are/were strong dogs, but I think Sparky was a bit stronger. Sparky was more muscular, while Dexter is a bit more lean, with longer legs. And although Sparky was stronger, Dexter is definitely faster than Sparky.

Thanks for the great question!

who would win a lion or a komodo dragon

Hi Steven,

Well, although this is not a Sparky or Dexter question, I really think neither of them would win. I think they would both lose. The komodo would get at least one bite in, and a komodo's bite is fatal because of the bacteria in their saliva. But I think after the komodo bit the lion once, the lion would then fatally maul the komodo. Either way, it's not a good ending for either of them.
