Wife with wandering husband must track down legal advice

Dear Abby: I’m nearly 100 percent sure my husband is cheating on me. I tracked him a couple of times using the GPS on his phone and saw he wasn’t where he told me he would be. I know he has a female acquaintance who lives in the general area of where he was, so I did a little investigating. Sure enough, she lives exactly where he was. I don’t know whether to confront him now, or wait to try to catch him at her house so there will be no denying it.

Dani the corgi needs a loving home

If your idea of a perfect companion is quiet, cute and covered in fur, Dani is your girl. Waiting for you at PAWS of Grays Harbor, she’s 12 years old and the sweetest, quietest dog you’ll meet. She’ll stay by your side, but she won’t alert you to any danger with a loud bark. Little Dani has been surgically debarked. What she lacks in voice, she makes up for with heart. Corgis are the queen’s dog of choice and Dani deserves to be treated like royalty. She won’t require a lot of exercise, merely a daily walk. Dani would appreciate a place on the cushiest corner of your sofa. If the perfect match for Dani step forward, the great folks at PAWS have decided to waive her adoption fee. She’ll need a companion or a family who is willing to take on the responsibilities that come with adopting a senior, barkless dog. You’ll be rewarded with soft, cuddly hugs and Dani’s lifelong gratitude.

Dear Abby — Forward thinking can help parents deal with cancer

Dear Abby: I’m writing in response to “Not Talking About the Future” (March 24), whose wife has breast cancer, was told she has only a few years to live, and feels sad when her kids talk about their futures. My dad was diagnosed with stage four multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer, in 2006. He was told that even the most aggressive treatment would buy him only two or three more years. Well, he’s now working on year nine.
