Run free, sweet Max!


My dear friend Max has made his departure. He is running and playing wiff so many loved ones at the Rainbow Bridge. I hope he finds my brudder Benny up there - he can show him all the good places to eat, and which buffets have the best steak, and which fields have the most birdies to sniff...

We will always love you Max. It's been an honor to call you and your sweet mama our friends!

Life is short. Love each other.

and unto joy they all return.

Dear Kathleen
Thank you so much for your beautiful tribute for our Maxdog!
Tonight as I look at your portrait hanging on the wall in our sitting room, it brings me peace because Max is not absent. The light in his eyes which you captured has been immortalised in my home. I still can't thank you enough.
With love from a very sad Maxmom.
