Hi Rick Arruza! I remember you coming with your new dog Dexter at ICCA. I feel sorry that sparky died a few years ago. But whats funny is that sparky died on my birthday Sep. 9, 2011, which is very sad to me as well.

Hi Khemraj!

Thank you for your kind words about Sparky. Did you know that Sparky visited your school? I think she visited way back in 2009. But I'm happy that you got to meet Dexter! As for the Sparky books, I think I might be able to send you a couple of books for free, but you'll have to ask your parents to send me your address so I can mail the books to you. They can contact me at my regular e-mail address, rarruzza@optonline.net.

Hi Rick Arruza! I have never read any of your books. If you can get books for free please tell me. I don’t want my parents knowing I spend money I don’t have!

I love dogs. one day I will get a dog named Sparky

Hi Gianna!

I'm so happy that you love dogs! I've always loved dogs, too. But when I was young like you, I couldn't have a dog because they didn't allow dogs where we lived. I didn't get my first dog, Lucky, until I was 14 years old. I'll never forget that day, that's for sure!!

And maybe you can adopt a dog from a dog pound or an animal rescue agency, like I've done with Sparky and Dexter (and Lucky, too!). But wherever you get your dog, just take good care of them and give them a nice, loving home. And you can name them Sparky, too!!!

Have a fun weekend!

How long have you've been writing for

Hi Shiloh!

Well, I've been "writing" stories since I was in elementary school. I remember in sixth grade I wrote a story about the Little Rascals that my teacher read in front of the class. As for the Sparky books, I started writing them in 2003, so I've been writing about Sparky (and now Dexter, too!) for 16 years. But I've always been using my imagination, and I'm sure you can use your wonderful imagination and write some great stories, too!

Thanks for the great question!

Thank you for coming! Me and my classmates were so excited when we saw Dexter! When my teacher called me out of recess, I thought I was in trouble! But, I got to meet Dexter for the first time!
See You Soon!

Hi Nohelly!

You thought you were in trouble!! That's funny! And so happy that you got to meet Dexter. Tell all your classmates that Dexter says Hi!

Enjoy the weekend!

Hi Nohelly!

So happy that you remember the Sparky books from when I visited when you were in the first grade! Unfortunately, when I visit Friday I'm only seeing the K-3 grades. And I'm bringing my new dog Dexter! Maybe we can stop by your classroom before we leave. I'll find out when I get there tomorrow.

I like your books

Hi Devv!

Yay! I'm so happy that you enjoy the Sparky books. That's great! My favorite one is "No Rest for Sparky." And did you meet my new dog Dexter at your school? I'm writing a book about Dexter, too, called "Mr. Dexter's Neighborhood." Hopefully, it will be done soon, and maybe I can read it the next time I visit your school!

Keep on reading!

hi sparky and rick arruzza and check your e-mail okay sparky and are :typing

Hi Alekhya!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend! Whenever Sparky's paws hit the keyboard, she always typed some funny dog language like - dsf;jpoidsfujsdlk - that I didn't understand! Well, Sparky didn't know the alphabet! And neither does Dexter. So I have to do all the typing!

Bye for now!

im so sorry you died i hope you are having a good time in heven

Hi Jake!

Thank you for your kind words about Sparky. And I'm sure she's having a good time in heaven, eating all the watermelon and popsicles she wants and playing with all of her doggie pals that have passed away, like Max, Macy, Heidi and Jake. However, I'm sure that our two bunnies, Maggie and Molly, still don't want to play with Sparky even though they're in heaven!

Thanks for writing!

Rick
