I just found out that my friend Natala's dog, Cuba, died from surgical complications last week. I had the pleasure of meeting and playing with her a year ago when I stayed with Natala in Seattle. During that stay, I captured Cuba and her dog friend Toby engaged in some serious frolicking. Although Toby impressed with the spin move, Cuba ultimately kicked his ass.

R.I.P. Cuba and {{{hugz}}} to Natala. I know what it's like to lose a friend.
