  1. This sounds wonderful! Ty, hero #980 lives on Cape Cod. Unfortunately Vermont is a bit too far for me to come and also carry out my responsibilities. Hate that I will miss it! Julie


  2. Oh I would love to bring our 9yo golden…who recently had a melanoma tumor and affected lymph node removed…he is loving life and sucking the marrow out of each day. Hoping for many more days like these. Goldens are the best.

  3. Hi, Andrea! Did you ever make it to the Jubilee? If so, I am sorry that we did not meet. I would have loved to meet your nine year old!
