Our sweet Max went to doggie heaven on Sunday, February 28. He was one day away from his 9th birthday. If you've been following along you probably read about his cancer here and here. He was in remission for a few months and doing great. But on February 11 he started declining....very rapidly. And I was taking care of a very sick boy again. So, this is why I've been "extra-strength flakey" lately - and why e-mails and newsletters and blog posts and sewing projects have been delayed. But I'm starting to "come back to life" and get back into my normal routine. And thank you for all the kind messages and prayers and happy thoughts that were sent Max's way - I know he really appreciated them. He was a great guy and will be missed by everyone who knew him.
P.S. I'll have a happier post for you next time!
