Oh to have such a wonderful world...one we all dream of without cancer. No wait! That's squirrel chasing we dream of, although a cancer free world sounds pretty darned good too!

Love, Rowdy and Izzy

In memory of our rotts, Max1, Max2, Missy and Handsome.

Hi Gizmo - I was checking back to see how you are doing. We are all praying for you here in Baltimore. I have an almost 3 year old chocolate lab named Indy Bones and he sends slobbery kisses your way too. I too wish for a world with no cancer of any kind. Maybe one day there will be a cure? Won't that be nice? It will happen - one fine day. Until then we can all just hope and donate what we can so they can find a cure soon.

Take care,

~dt~
