Just another shot of my best bud.. Max (shar pei and God knows what else).. resting on his usual area – the landing.. and giving me that – WHAT IS WITH YOU AND THAT CAMERA??? – look.
Course, he didn’t have that attitude when I first saw him at the local kennel. He had been found wandering the streets of a nearby city. No idea how long he had been on the loose but he was very “undog like” for the first few years we had him (no tail wagging, no barking, no kisses, no up on furniture, no upstairs). He still shows some fear but I think that after 6 years, he’s pretty sure we won’t hurt him. Still won’t give kisses but most of his other “ills” have been pretty well cured.. besides.. he’s just a big baby anyway…
At some point during September 2011, he started running into things. Our living arrangements had changed drastically (with the invasion of my son, his 2 kids and a dog) and he was having a hard time. He was used to the peace and quiet that comes with 2 retirees. In October, he went partially blind.. possibly due to a stroke and with that, his fear increased. Once the sun set, he wouldn’t go outside, upstairs or much of anything. There was no quality left in his life and I couldn’t watch him go through this. On 11-25-2011, with a heavy heart, I had to have Max put to sleep. He will always be sorely missed.
