Memories of MAX
IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER DAY WHEN MAX STOLE OUR HEARTS. LEFT IN A BOX ON A SIDEWALK IN NYC WITH 2 OTHER LITTERMATES IN THE BROILING SUN, MATT TOOK HIM AND 2 OTHER CONSTRUCTION WORKERS TOOK THE OTHERS. OUR BABY WAS SO SICK, HE HAD A BAD CASE OF MANGE, EARMITES AND WORMS. WHEN WE TOOK HIM TO THE VET HE WAS ONLY 2LBS AND APPROX. 5 WEEKS OLD. THE DR DIDN'T EXPECT HIM TO MAKE IT. HE STARTED HIM ON SOME TREATMENTS BUT TOLD US TO TAKE HIM HOME,GIVE HIM PLENTY OF LOVE AND HOPE FOR THE BEST. NEEDLESS TO SAY MAX PULLED THROUGH. HE WAS A REAL FIGHTER.

OVER THE YEARS HE BROUGHT SO MUCH JOY AND LOVE INTO OUR HOME AND HEARTS. HE TAUGHT US ABOUT "UNCONDITIONAL LOVE". HE ENTERTAINED US WITH HIS ANTICS AND SILLY BEAGLE WAYS. THE YEARS FLEW BY TOO QUICKLY. AS TIME WOULD HAVE IT MAX GREW OLD, HE GOT SICK MORE OFTEN AND HIS ARTHRITIS GOT MUCH WORSE. FOR THE PAST YEAR WE WOULD CARRY HIM UP AND DOWN THE STAIRS SO HE COULD STILL GO OUT. HE ENJOYED SITTING IN THE GRASS WATCHING THE WORLD GO BY. OUR GOAL WAS TO KEEP HIM AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE WITH DIFFERENT MEDS SO THAT HE COULD HAVE QUALITY TIME WITH US AND WE WITH HIM. WE ALL AGREED THAT WHEN THE MEDS COULDN'T HELP HIM ANYMORE WE WOULD HAVE TO MAKE THAT DREADED DESCISION. HE HAD BEEN HAVING A PROBLEM GETTING UP ON HIS OWN AND WALKING, WE KNEW HE WAS IN PAIN BECAUSE HE WOULD PANT SO MUCH. OFF TO THE VET WE WENT WITH HEAVY HEARTS BUT THE VET SUGGESTED TRYING SOME STERIODS TO HELP WITH THE INFLAMATION AND GIVE US EXTRA TIME WITH HIM. IT HELPED FOR ABOUT 10 DAYS,HE WAS GETTING UP ON HIS OWN AND WALKING WITHOUT PANTING. BUT THEN IT STARTED AGAIN. AS MUCH AS WE DIDN'T WANT TO LET GO WE KNEW WE HAD TO. IT WOULD BE SELFISH TO LET HIM SUFFER JUST SO WE COULD STILL HAVE HIM WITH US.

THAT FATEFUL NIGHT WILL ALWAYS BURN IN MY MEMORY, IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO BUT ALSO THE HARDEST AND MOST PAINFUL. ALL OF US WERE WITH HIM WHEN HE SLIPPED PEACEFULLY AWAY. I CAN'T DESCRIBE THE PAIN AND HURTING I FEEL, IT'S SO BAD BUT I TRY TO BE STRONG. I'M THANKFUL THAT WE HAD HIM AS LONG AS WE DID.

I THINK OF HIM EVERY DAY AND TALK TO HIM EVERY NIGHT IN MY PRAYERS. SOMETIMES I CAN FEEL HIS PRESENCE WITH ME SAYING "STOP CRYING MOM, I'M FINE". I KNOW HE'S IN A BETTER PLACE WHERE HE'S YOUNG AND PAINFREE AND WHEN MY TIME COMES HE'LL BE WAITING FOR ME BY THE RAINBOW BRIDGE AND WE WILL WALK OVER TOGETHER.

UNTIL WE'RE TOGETHER AGAIN REST IN PEACE MY SPECIAL BABY, YOU WILL FOREVER BE IN MY HEART - I MISS YOU SO MUCH AND WILL LOVE YOU ALWAYS.

11/27/2014 - TODAY WAS OUR 1ST THANKSGIVING WITHOUT YOU. OH GOD IT WAS SO HARD. I MISSED YOU "HELPING ME COOK" I KEPT LOOKING DOWN EXPECTING TO SEE YOU THERE WAGGING YOUR TAIL, GETTING ALL EXCITED AND "WILLING" SOMETHING TO DROP SO YOU COULD SNATCH IT UP. I EVEN MISSED YOU BEGGING FOR TURKEY AND HOW YOU WOULD SWAT AT US AND HOWL IF WE DIDN'T GIVE IT TO YOU. I MISS YOU SO MUCH LITTLE MOO I DON'T KNOW HOW I'M GONNA GET THROUGH XMAS WITHOUT YOU.

01/03/2015 - WELL MOO WE MADE IT THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS WITH HEAVY HEARTS. I FELT YOUR SPIRIT WITH ME MORE THAN ONCE WHICH WAS COMFORTING BUT THEN I MISSED YOU ALL THE MORE. I REMEMBERED HOW LAST CHRISTMAS MORNING WE RUSHED YOU TO THE ANIMAL HOSPITAL BECAUSE YOU HAD AN ABCESSED TOOTH. WE CAME HOME WITH ANTIBIOTICS AND PAINKILLERS AND YOU SPENT MOST OF THE DAY AND NIGHT SLEEPING. YOU DIDN'T GET TO ENJOY YOUR PRESENTS UNTIL A FEW DAYS LATER WHEN YOU STARTED TO FEEL BETTER. YOU NEVER GOT TO HAVE YOUR CHRISTMAS PANCAKES WITH US EITHER. I HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT CHRISTMAS AT THE BRIDGE WITH ALL YOUR NEW FRIENDS AND BAGOO AND POPPI. AND WE HOPE THAT YOUR PLAYING NICE WITH CHAMP AND DEE JAY. LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH LITTLE MOO MOO COW. TILL WE MEET AGAIN - LOVE YOU ALWAYS
MOM
08/27/2015 - HI MOO, IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE A WHOLE YEAR HAS PASSED SINCE YOU LEFT US. I REMEMBER THAT NIGHT LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY AND IT HURTS JUST AS MUCH. THE ONLY THING THAT EASES MY PAIN IS KNOWING YOU'RE NOT IN PAIN ANYMORE. YOU'RE RUNNING AND PLAYING WITH ALL YOUR NEW FRIENDS AT THE BRIDGE. ALSO THIS YEAR APPOLLO AND TYSON JOINED YOU THERE. I WISH I COULD OF KEPT YOU HERE LONGER BUT THAT WOULD OF BEEN SO SELFISH OF ME. YOU WERE READY. I CAN STILL SEE YOUR EYES THAT NIGHT, YOU WERE LETTING ME KNOW HOW TIRED YOU WERE JUST LIKE WHEN YOU WOULD BE SICK - YOU ALWAYS CAME TO ME JUST LIKE A CHILD WHO LOOKS FOR THEIR MOM WHEN THEY ARE SICK OR HURTING. THAT WAS THE HARDEST DECISION I HAD TO MAKE BUT IT WAS THE KINDEST FOR YOU. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN MOO MOMMY LOVES AND MISSES YOU SO MUCH. ONE DAY WE WILL WALK OVER THAT BRIDGE TOGETHER
