Memories of Maxx Renaud
As you know Maxx, Symba your best friend took the journey to Rainbow Bridge on February 24, 2016. We did what we could but the cancer was widespread. She must have been thrilled to see you, as I will be someday. We take comfort in the fact that Symba Sym was able to be with us for the short but happy few years that she was. She learned that not all humans were mean and you taught her how to be a dog again. She absolutely loved the family, grandchildren especially. We all miss you both terribly and I think of you both often. I was very lonely and rescued a puppy named Karma from Texas. She was born in a shelter and needed a home right away or she would be sent to the Rainbow Bridge way too soon. She is a handful but I love her anyway. If you were here when Karma came I know that you would have helped to teach her the rules of the house. She will be a good dog too like you both were. Things are going well at the old house. I go to work and come home to take care of Karma. I miss and love you both very much and will see you again someday. Be happy and warm together until I come to get you. P.S. I changed our song to the one I sang to you the night before you left.
All my love, hugs and kisses, Mummy.

Maxx was a beautiful Blue Great Dane. He was stately and proud. He was silly and goofy doing his Zoomies around his yard. He kept his Mummy warm in bed every night. I will think of him every day and every night until we meet again. And that will be a wonderful day. I miss him so. I feel so lost and alone without my baby dog. Everything I did was for him and his comfort.

Dear Baby Mina,
I know that you sent your love to me at 8:45 pm last night while I looked for you in the stars. I felt so much better when I knew you were there. I wanted to tell you that I will take good care of your Symba-Sym until it is time for her to join you. She has been looking for you in the yard and has been scared and sad. She will be okay, with time, as I will. We will be brave together and will go on together until we can see you again because we love you so. Until then, enjoy the sun you always loved to lay in and have fun with your friends, old and new. I know that Harley the Million Mile Truck dog is there with you too. Don't let him get you into trouble as we know that Harley was rather crazy and wild. But he was a good boy too. He protected Mummy on the road as you did at home.
With great love, hugs and kisses,
Mummy and Symba.

Good morning Mummy's boy,
I went to Dr. M's on Wednesday to bring you home. You will sit on my desk in my room until we are buried together. I will be so happy to see you again. You were a one in a million and Mummy was so glad to have you with her. Your picture still sits on my desk at work and will stay there until I don't work anymore. That will be a long time. I go to work and come home, as usual. I think about you every day and am thankful, in one way, that you are in a good place. Mummy has been trying to deal with the mortgage company to save our little house in the woods and the big yard that you used to play in but don't know if I can succeed. It would have broken my heart to take you away from here to go to an apartment. It was one of my biggest fears but now you are okay at Rainbow Bridge. And if Symba and I have to go to live elsewhere, we will be okay too. It has been a rough year but we will continue on until we see you again. I miss petting your silky fur and holding your face in my hands and feeling your teeth chatter in excitement because I was home. It was the highlight of my day to come home to my baby dog. Everyone who met you thought that you were so beautiful and gentle. You are missed by many. Always remember that you are the Love of your Mummy's Life and that she prays for you every night.
With great love, hugs and kisses,
Mummy and Symba.

Good morning Mummy's baby dog,
I have some good news. Mummy's boss gave her a raise! It was greatly appreciated and will help with the mortgage. I want you to be able to continue coming to your warm room in this little house. I think of you every day and wish I could have done more for your comfort. You survived two forms of cancer and were able to stay with us for additional years but I guess it was time for you to rest and enjoy your new life, pain free. I will be forever grateful for the wonderful years that we had together. Your Symba Sym is doing okay. She sleeps in the bed with me but always leaves room for you. Sometimes she stares at the spot in the bed between her and I and the bed seems warmer. It is then that I know you are with us. I can't wait for the day when I can hug and hold you again my precious baby dog. Well, we have very cold weather coming and your brother and I have to bring in the cordwood. Remember how you used to stand in between Mummy and the wood furnace when she was lighting it? And Mummy would tell you to move so she could light the stove to keep your skinny butt warm? Those were good days. I love you my beautiful baby and pray for you every night.
With great love, hugs and kisses,
Mummy and Symba.


Dear Mummy's baby,
I miss you so much. I feel so alone. Sissy said that you were "my other half" and that is true. No person or dog will ever give to me what you did. Sometimes I just don't want to go on but Sissy says that I have to so that I can see you again. That is all that keeps me going now. I hope that you are warm and happy. I always worried about you and your comfort. I will continue on because that is what I have to do to be able to see you and hold you again. You gave me such comfort in what can be such a cold and cruel existence. You were always there to make me feel better and to make me laugh. You left twenty days ago and it seems like an eternity. I love you more than life itself my baby Mina. Be happy and warm until we meet again. I can't wait to see my little boy.
With great love, hugs and kisses,
Mummy and Symba

Hello my baby dog,
Today marks one month since you made your journey to the Rainbow Bridge. I have thought of you every day and night and miss you so. I pray that you are warm and happy because you always deserved the best my baby dog. You brought so much joy and comfort to Mummy. I think of all the wonderful days we had together and am thankful that we had them. You hid the pain far too long my baby dog. I so wish that I would have taken you to Dr. M. sooner so that you would have had some relief. I will always regret it. I was so wrapped up in trying to make sure that we had a warm place to live and food to eat that I couldn't see how much pain you endured. You were always so strong and brave, even at the end. On that day, a month ago, you lifted your head out of my lap when Dr. M. came into our room. You looked at him and put your head back down and it was then that I knew that you were ready to go to a better place.
You just need to remember that you were and always will be the love of your Mummy's life. She will continue to think of you every day and will look forward to see and hold you again when that time comes. Then she will never, never let you go again. We will be together, warm and happy and free of pain and the all the stupid things that humans worry about. I love you more than life itself my precious baby Mina. Stay warm and have fun with your friends in the warm and sunny place that you call home now. I will come to to you and hold you close again and that will be a wonderful day.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Happy Valentines Day to the Love of My Life.

Mummy will hold you dear in her heart forever my beautiful boy. I imagine you running and playing like you used to do in the yard. You would run like a racehorse, throwing large tufts of grass into the air. And jump around with ears, paws and lips flying. And I would laugh and laugh. Then you would trot over and lean on Mummy and she would wrap her arm around your neck. We had a wonderful life together, you and I. And you taught Symba that she would be happy living with us. Mummy will come to you some day. Be happy and warm my love.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Hello Mummy's Boy,
Today marks two months since you took your journey to Rainbow Bridge. I have been looking at photos of you this morning, remembering days when we were young and strong. Days when you patrolled your yard, laid in the sun and on the sofa. Days when you were ill and we were all by your side trying to make you comfortable. The last photo was of your huge pawprints in the snow from your last patrol of your yard. That snow has melted, pawprints have faded, but our love for you and the memories you gave us will never fade. Springtime is finally on it's way so Mummy sent daffodils for you. I remember, in past Springtimes, you walking about the yard sniffing the new flower blooms. You always seemed to enjoy them as much as Mummy did. We had such a special bond, you and I. It will never be broken my baby dog. You were and always will be the love of your Mummy's life. Be warm and happy my special little boy. We will all come to you someday.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Happy Easter Mummy's Boy,
Mummy loves you,misses you,and thinks of you every day. I have been working extra hours which is good. Symba and I went to Sissy's early this morning and left a basket of goodies on her step. I am happy that warmer weather is here. The yard is a mess from all the storms knocking down branches. I can't help but think that when the neighbors start walking and riding their horses by the house, they will be wondering where that big blue dog is that guarded his yard so fiercely. You had quite the reputation with the other inhabitants of the neighborhood. You were respected and admired, big blue dog standing in your yard, fur shining in the sun. They didn't see when you would lay on Mummy's bed with your big paws up in the air waiting for her to rub your belly. Be warm and happy til Mummy sees you again my baby dog.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.
P.S. Thank you for sending the song.

Hi my baby dog,
I have been thinking of you all day today. It was three months ago today that you took your journey to the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you so much. I don't think the pain of losing you will ever go away. Sometimes when I leave work I see a big blue dog walking with her Mummy and I cry all the way home. Sissy says that it is time that they have their journey together like we had ours. I just hope that the blue dog's family loves her like we loved you. I know that there is a terrible illness in that family right now and I imagine that the blue dog is a great comfort to her Mummy during this time. You always made me feel better when things were tough. I love you my baby dog and think of you every day. Stay warm and happy til Mummy sees you again.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Happy Birthday my dear baby dog,
It has been four months since you took your journey. I love and miss you very much but believe that you are in a good place, waiting for me. I will be very happy to see you again my special boy. You would have been twelve years old this month. (Mummy has the date wrong on your stone. She will try to fix it.) Symba is doing well and misses you, like we all do. I think of you every day and pray for you every night and take comfort that I will see you again. You are the love of your Mummy's life baby dog.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Good morning Mummy's boy,
Mummy misses you terribly bad today. Tomorrow will be five months since you have gone. I was looking on rescue websites and saw a boy like you looking for a home. He was terribly skinny. I don't understand how someone could treat a dog like that, it breaks my heart. He should have all the love that you do and I hope he finds a good Mummy. There are so many that need Mummy's. I wish I could help them all but can only take care of your Symba Sym right now. She still looks for you in the yard. All is well here except for you not being here. It still hurts so much my baby boy. I will be okay. I hope that you are having fun with Harley and your new friends. I hope that you are happy and comfortable. Mummy always tried to make sure that you were happy and comfortable. You brought so much love and happiness to me. I will be so happy to see you again my baby dog.
With the greatest of love, hugs, and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Hello Mummy's boy,
Today it has been six months since you have been at Rainbow Bridge. Mummy and Sym think of you every day and still miss you very much. I look for you running in the clouds and think of the day that we meet again. I miss your paw hugs and your grizzle bear noises. We love you very much and wanted you to know that we will always hold our memories together in our hearts.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Hello Mummy's boy,
It has been eight months today since you have been at Rainbow Bridge. Mummy and Sym miss you and Mummy thinks of you every day. I miss you very much. Your hugs were the best and you could always make Mummy smile. You are so special to her. I wish that you could have stayed with me forever. Someday we will be together again and it will be forever then and Mummy so looks forward to seeing you again. But until then, stay warm in the sun and have fun doing zoomies in fields of flowers while Mummy does what she has to do here. And remember that we will think of you and love you everyday until then my baby dog.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Hello Mummy's boy,
It is Christmas Eve and I wanted to give you a little Christmas tree. I think of you and miss you every day but I know that you are waiting for me. I pray for you every night and take comfort that I will see you again. You are the love of Mummy's life my baby dog and Christmas will be lonely without you. Remember how you would take all of the Christmas toys and hide them in the yard so that the other dogs wouldn't bark? You would bury them all, never to be found again you crazy boy. We will be thinking of you tomorrow, you will be missed on this first Christmas that we are not celebrating together. But somehow I know that you will be here my little boy. Mummy loves you so much. Stay warm and happy until we meet again my baby Mina. Merry Christmas Maxx.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Hello Mummy's boy,
Today, at noontime, marks one year since you took your journey to Rainbow Bridge. Mummy survived the year, she thought it would be impossible to go on without you, but here we are. I had a lot of support from your human sister and brothers and from Symba Sym too. We all love and miss you, especially me. I know that you still walk beside me in my life as I move closer to seeing you again. That is the day that I live for, to see and hold you close again my little baby dog. I will never let you go. We will be together for Eternity, nice and warm, healthy again. Until then, my baby dog, stay warm in the sunshine and have fun with the other residents of the Bridge. You are so special and beautiful, such a good boy. You are the Love of Mummy's Life.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Happy Valentines Day to the Love of Mummy's Life,
It is hard to believe that you went to the Bridge a little over a year ago. Mummy has missed you and thought of you every one of those days. Your picture is still on my desk at work and I talk to it every day. At least you are warm, healthy and pain free there which gives me comfort. It has been a very cold and snowy winter but we are okay. I think of you when I light the woodstove, how you would stand in between me and that box of fire. You loved to be warm, just like Mummy. We would snuggle under the blanket and you would put your head on your pillow and and we would look into each others eyes while Mummy rubbed your chest. I miss being close to you but carry you with me in my heart always, every where I go. You are my precious Valentine, such a good boy. Mummy loves you and will be so happy to see you someday. Take care and have fun with your friends. Tell Harley I said hello. I will pray for you every night my love. You made me so happy all the years that we were together. I was blessed to have you as a companion my special little boy. Be warm and wait for me, I will come to you someday. Happy Valentines Day my Maxx.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Hello Mummy's boy,
I was thinking of how I hadn't come here to visit for quite a while. When I got home from work tonight, I had received a nice email from someone who came here to see you. So I had to come visit you. I'm sure that you know that I have thought of you and missed you every day of the past twenty months my baby dog. I will love you forever my Maxx. We had wonderful times together, I remember them all.
We are all doing okay and will be preparing for winter soon. I have been working overtime which is good because I have to buy cordwood.You remember how we would sit by the woodstove and look out the window at all the snow that you loved to eat. Symba is doing fine and growing old with me. I take her up the hill to the store for peanut butter bones like I used to do with you. That's about all the excitement that she will deal with. You know how afraid of everything she can be. She is getting better but still won't go for a walk like we did to the big fields. But that's okay.
I have thanked God for bringing you to me and am blessed to have had those memorable years with you. We had some wonderful times, my special little boy. You were always there for me, doing your zoomies when I was happy and comforting me when I was sad. I will be so thrilled to see you again my Mina. Remember, I will think of you, miss you and love you every day until we meet again. Be warm and have fun in the sun with your friends until I come to you.
With hugs and kisses and all our love,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Merry Christmas Mummy's boy,
I am thinking of you today, as I do every day. It has been almost two years since I have been visiting you here. I miss you and love you. Symba does too. But we will see you again someday. I wanted you to have a Christmas tree for the holiday season. The family was here tonight and you were mentioned as always. We all loved you very much. Merry Christmas my Mina.
With the greatest of love, hugs and kisses,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Happy Easter Mummy's boy,
Mummy is thinking of you today, like every day. Your picture is still on my desk at work and I miss not seeing you when I get home. But, we will meet again someday my Mina. We talk about you often, everyone misses you. Symba is doing well but is slowing down like Mummy. We are getting older but still pitter patter around. I sent you some Easter Lilies because I remember how you used to appreciate the smell of flowers. I used to buy them for my mom every year but she is in Heaven and you and I will see her someday. I love you and miss you my special boy.
With hugs and kisses and all our love on this Easter,
Your Mummy and Symba Sym.

Hello Mummy's boy,
Two months from today you will have been at Rainbow Bridge, with Harley, for three years. I think of you and miss you everyday. I know that you think of us too "as we head down this unfamiliar road". Your picture is still at my desk and will be so until I don't go to work there anymore. Things have been a little easier for us lately and we may stay in this little house for a while more. Symba is doing pretty good. Needs to go for a check up. She loved you like the rest of us did. You showed her how to be a family dog. She watched everything you did. You are very special to us all and we miss you every, every day Mina. Be warm and have fun until we see you again.
With hugs, kisses and all our love,
Mummy and Symba Sym and your family in the woods.
PS. I miss you most of all my Maxx.
