    Default Max, you will be missed!

    Max was 15-years old but just a pup at heart. We spent the morning at the Vet and had to make the call. First time for us and just about the hardest thing we have ever done. My wife is devastated. She held him close as he slipped away. I hugged him and gave him a kiss on the nose and it was over quickly for him. I guess in time it gets better but not sure how one can just go right out and bring home another pup. Maybe that would be best. Either way, it's just gonna take some time no doubt.

    He was our Perfect Dog ...

    Sorry for your loss...it is quite hard to lose someone that close to the family. 15 years - with the pictures I have seen...he must have had the life.

    He could not swim, no joke but he loved the boat and that was his favorite thing to do

    Sorry for your loss. 15 years is quite a long life, and I am certain that your dog had a happy "dog life" with you and your family. But it's pretty tough to let them go. I had to do the same a couple of years ago, and my wife was in pretty bad shape for a while (she still cries every now and then when thinking about the old dog). But it was much easier on us to get another dog right away. It takes your mind away from the one you let go, at least part of the time, and also reminds you of the old dog as you laugh about the differences between the two.

    He was a great guard/camp dog but never bit anyone. He always appreciated the slightest bit of attention, even a glance.

    Funny how his hearing was fading and how he would use that to his advantage to extend his exploration a little further into the countryside as he watched you call him from the corner from his eye.

    :O)

    Thanks Ray, yes, I might just surprise my wife with a puppy. Our friends back in Oregon have a couple of "Mastiff/Akita/Black Lab mix" pups. Just getting them here would be tough. We will see. Thanks again!
