Today marks another year around the sun for me!  I may not be flawless, but I’m grateful for the blessings that come my way

For the angels, today is a unique celebration. The beloved golden retriever Max is ecstatic when Emily, his owner, arranges a birthday celebration for him. Not only is today Max’s birthday, but it also honours his deceased twin brother.

Max, who is tucked up in a charming country house, charms everyone he comes into contact with. Emily sets up the house with colorful balloons and streamers to make Max’s special day feel festive because she considers him more than just a pet but a beloved family member.

Emily, though, is carrying a bittersweet feeling as they remember Max’s twin brother, who was with them on their travels but is now much missed. Stories of Max’s antics and unending love fill the air as friends and neighbors get together to celebrate his happy presence, bringing both laughter and tears.

In a moving moment of contemplation, Emily remembers their deceased brother by lighting a candle next to a picture of the two dogs. As he senses the range of feelings, Max gives reassuring nuzzles that reinforce their lasting relationship.

Singing “Happy Birthday” together, they celebrate the love and memories that bind them together. Emily thanks Max as the day draws to an end because she knows their relationship is timeless and not limited by geography. Even if their twin sister is no longer with us, their memories of them endure.

There’s a moving sense of thanksgiving in the air as Max becomes one year old, honoring the angels who have touched their lives both here and gone. I hope their spirits never fade and never cease to remind us of the deep love that exists between a human and their devoted dog friend.
