“Rex” in Army, But Don’t Write Him

“Rex,” the 16-month-old Chesapeake belonging to Patty and David Schneider, who has gone into Dogs for Defense, has been sent to Camp Robinson, Neb., for basic training. Patty and David are the children of Mr. and Mrs. Paul A. Schneider.

And again, the poor dog! The Schneiders have been requested not to write to “Rex” because the trainers wouldn’t have time to keep up with answering all their K-9 mail.
