Thanks for this information, Jan! You know what they say: "If you are having trouble doing something on your computer, ask a child!"

I will stand by and wait for the photos.

My 36yr old granddaughter cannot help as of now.She has to have her dog put down today.She and her 11 year old son are quite upset.Also the mark I described was not entirely correct.Upon Closer scrutiny it is a what looks like a 7 with a 1 with small line under and under that is what appears to be a 2 or a z or possibly a sideways w.We'll send a picture of it along.

Hi Jan,

I'm very sorry to hear about your granddaughter's dog. It's so sad to lose a family member.

Please take all the time you need. No rush.
