Awww Sally, THANK YOU!!!

A couple of tears and a MUCH needed smile this morning.

It's funny to think that just over four years ago the Stink Bomb was visiting the pugapalooza. Barney looked a little fresher then, but Mag still was not impressed.

I second the happy heavenly birthday, Maggie.  How sweet.
