A Sad Day!

Max
Feb. 2001 - march 2010


It is with a heavy heart that I share this sad news about Max. This afternoon, we had to say goodbye. We had asked the vet to come here in our place and everyone's here with him, also the owner.
Over the past three weeks we know he's in pain but he is still happy to be with us. He follows us everywhere when he can. When i am here at my desk, he often nudges me for pets. He will not go out with the others for his walks without me.
Max... You will always live on in our hearts and memories.




((you can click on all pictures to enlarge if you want))
These were some of his last pictures at his favorite place, at the dyke looking out to see.

Thank you all so much for your visits and all your kind comments with my previous post.

Oh Mylene, i'm so, so sorry about Max.
It's so heartbreaking to loose a pet, we were all in bits for ages when we had to have our dog Flo put to sleep a few years ago, so i know how you all must feel. At least he is at peace now.

Take care

I have tears in my eyes as I write this, Mylene. Max was so lucky to have your family in his life. And you were equally lucky to have him in yours. Remember the special moments: the times he made you laugh, the love you shared, and all the fun times that you had with him. He was a very special friend...
