Pleasanton couple's dog a winning wiener

"In the seven years they have been together, Patrick Major has seen Sammy Davis transform from a playful pet to one of the fastest dachshund racers in the state. Even though he stands only about 6 inches tall, Sammy can pump his stubby little legs and leap through the air to catch Frisbees nearly as big as he is. And, this pooch was a doggie pinup in the International Disc Dog calendar three years running." Read More Here

Dear Mr Major,

Thank you for your dedication, time, and donation to organizing the trip to Saint Mary’s. The trip was fun, especially the basketball game. The college was really nice, and the campus looked great. It would be great to go back there. I also liked seeing part of the rugby game; it was very amazing. The food was very good, and we are grateful. We are also grateful that you organized the guest speakers to come talk to us. Another great thing was we received the Omar Samhan bobble heads. Thank you Mr. Major for organizing the trip, and spending your time with us. Sincerely, Michael A., Hamilton Meadows Middle School, NovatoAVID

Dear Mr Major, 

Thank you so much for allowing us middle schoolers to come and enjoy Saint Mary’s College. I really enjoyed the site of the campus, our guides were great. They made the walk around the campus even more exciting. Aside from that, I would also like to thank you for the basketball tickets. That experience was absolutely great. The cherry on top was that Saint Mary’s College won. I would also like to thank you for the great pizza. It was delicious. I really appreciate that you took time out of your day to think about the schools in little old Tracy. There are many other schools you could have choosen, but you chose ours. Thank you! Sincerely, Kalh Fields, Tracy AVID

Dear Chris Major,

Thank you for allowing me and my class to come to Saint Mary’s College,  and seeing the basketball game. I really enjoyed myself, I experienced something I never did. Thanks for setting up the entire field trip, I know it took a lot of your time. All the speakers were amazing, and very inspirational. I had never been on a field trip like this before. I also enjoyed the tour, our two ambassadors were nice, and helpful. The building were nice, and I saw a lot of different art pictures. Getting to experience your college changed my thoughts about college. I learned so much. Thank you for taking the time to stay up very late to teach and show us about Saint Mary’s College. I really enjoyed your school, so thank you for having us. Sincerely, Deywaun Vega, Tracy Unified AVID

Dear Chris Major, 

I would like to thank you very much for letting us attend the basketball game. I really enjoyed the game, especially because SMC won the game. The basketball game was very exciting. I liked when the basketball players dunked, and when the cheerleaders would throw shirts into the crowd. Thank you again for the basketball game. Sincerely, Esau, Tracy AVID
