Max, our loyal, loving, magnificent boy. 16.5 years of pure joy and caring. You were cherished and your absence leaves a hole in our family that cannot be measured. You had the strongest and sweetest heart but your body couldn’t keep up anymore. Letting you go was is heartbreaking but you deserved the same comfort you always provided so selflessly to us.
There is so much to miss we could write a book. Your soft puppy ears (the only part of you that didn’t grey-out), beautiful brown eyes, your FOMO (fear of missing out) that always kept you near all the action, sun-worshiper, a nose that never turned off, the “whoo, whoo, whoo” yodel when playing ball and your epic snore.
Thank you to HAWS (Humane Animal Welfare), Waukesha, WI for moving us to the front of the waiting list so we could adopt this amazing dog. Thank you to Lakeside Animal Hospital, Whitefish Bay, WI for proving wonderful care for 14 years. A very warm thanks and gratitude to West Ballantyne Animal Hospital, Tom Linfante, DVM. Due to your excellence you gave us 2.5 more years with Max. Your support for Max and us during this difficult time is not taken for granted.
