On Friday evening, Sam's dad took me to a memorial celebration for Dave - one of CCI's most incredible puppy raisers. Sam was going to come too but he was a little tired so I went with Sam's dad.

We saw Jan - Dave's wife - and Eric his son as well as many wonderful puppy raisers and other graduate teams. It was a nice celebration and it was good to meet so many wonderful people who help make CCI the family that it is.

Best of all, I got to see L.A. from the N.E. center. Boy, when I saw L.A., I sat up and was on my BEST responsive behavior. It was great to see you L.A. - and I think it was so nice you came all the way from N.Y. for the memorial service. CCI is indeed a family and I think your coming down showed how much the puppy raisers mean to CCI.

I only wish I had met Dave more often. He seemed like such a great person and I think there are many of us CCI dogs who owe him and Jan a big warm thank you for all they have done for us.
