This past weekend we celebrated my mom's 80th birthday. She is an amazing, talented and energetic person. Her energy and drive is something we all should strive for, no matter our age. But it was a bittersweet visit, I said goodbye to Max, who's been with my mom for 17 years. He was a happy, loving, sweet pup. I and we are truly going to miss him. He went to doggie heaven yesterday. Bye Max.
