You came into this world on June 10, 2002; unbeknownst to us. We met you for the first time when you were just a few hours old...you were so tiny, you fit in the palm of your dad's hand. We had no plans to adopt another fur baby that day, but we fell in love with you immediately; and you instantly had our hearts.|
From the beginning you were determined, strong, and affectionate. The perfect son, the perfect brother. You were our defender; always brave.
People always commented on your markings and how handsome you were. But we knew your true beauty was within. You were such a loyal and loving member of our family; a true daddy's boy, our "Pinocchio". If there was ever a dog who wanted to be a real boy, it was you Max. You were always there with your dad, hanging out, helping, chasing lizards. Watching you attack the sprinklers is something we will always look back at with a smile. You brought so many of them to our faces.
Seeing you get sick was one of the hardest things we have experienced. But you fought it, you weren't going to let an illness get the best of you. You were Maximillion Dollar Bill.
We knew you didn't want to go, but your body was too tired to fight anymore; even though your spirit remained strong. When the time came to help you cross the Rainbow Bridge, you held your head up high briefly and kissed your dad. Letting you go was one of the hardest things we've ever had to do.
Your absence has left a hole in all of our hearts; never to be replaced. We were lucky to have held you the day you came into this world, and we were blessed to be holding you the second your physical life on earth ended.
I wish all dogs could know the life you lived. Loved and adored. We would not trade one minute of our time with you. You made us better people.
We will always love you Maximillion Dollar Bill.
"If Tears Could Build A Stairway"
If tears could build a stairway,
No farewell words were spoken,
My heart still aches with sadness,
But now I know you want me
Since you'll never be forgotten,
