For anyone who doesn’t know.. this is Max.. a rescue. We got him in 2004 from the local Kennel. He had been found wandering around a nearby city. He did have a collar but no tags.
As I have gotten to know Max, it just blows my mind how anyone could throw him out, let him go.. or lose him. If he came up missing from THIS house, we would be searching everywhere until he was found. He’s an amazing dog and deserves every minute of love and joy we’ve given him.
After 7 years of “Maxie hugs” and assorted other ways of him showing love to us.. he appeared to have suffered a stroke in October 2011. By November he was almost totally blind. The decision was made and he was put to sleep on 11-25-11…. he died with my scent and touch being the last experiences of his life. What amazed me was that he NEVER gave us any trouble or worry. A being like that comes along rarely and it would be unfair to keep him alive just because we didn’t want to let go, I felt so privileged to have shared even one minute of his life and love..
