My Friend Max
11 x 14 Oil on Canvas
Daily walks and talks with my sister's dog, Max have bonded us like never before. He knows I'm a sucker for his big brown eyes and he begs me to walk him each morning. He navigates the yard and fields despite his blindness and arthritis. He continues to fetch a ball (golf balls, no less) using his other senses to find them. May I have the same determination and enthusiasm as my body ages.
