On Friday, I got a call from my very good friend John who was in a bit of a bind. He was about to take his family to Kentucky for the weekend, but ran into a little problem. Every kennel in town was booked for the Labor Day Holiday weekend.

John knows that I am a major dog lover. He asked me if I would dog-sit his dog Max for the weekend. Take a look at this photo of Max and tell me what you would say. Of course, we took care of Max. He is a real lovable dog and a pleasure to have around. He reminds me of my old dog Sam, so how could I say no?
