Light a Candle

My dear Max,
It’s only been a few short days since you took your last breath, however it feels like an eternity. I miss hearing your tippy taps, your huffs and puffs and any noise that you made in annoyance when it came to dealing with Gabby and Lucy. Our home feels empty without you. Today was especially hard because everything reminds me of you. Your hair all over the floor,your blankets a mess and paw prints from the outside. I’d do just about anything to bring you back home. I keep finding myself waiting for you to come in when I let the girls out potty and wait for your big gentle steps to make their way in but there’s no one else to wait for only the cold air. I found a piece of fur on my coffee cup (something that would make me roll my eyes before only made me realize how much of a void you left when you passed), you left your favorite bone behind and the girls haven’t touched it... they miss you just as much. My big boy I want to thank you for picking us out of everyone and showing me what a true loving companion looks like. I remember that day almost like yesterday, the only black and brown pup with “eyebrows “ who calmly sat my my side “ready to go home “. Thank you for being such a sweet and gentle boy with a ton of patience when it came to us giving you a little human sister, thank you for being her personal pony and sometimes a pillow. Words can’t describe the sadness in our hearts and the whole you left behind but I know that you’re in a better place with a nice big shady tree waiting for us to meet again someday.
Mama loves you Max , I know that you’re in good hands ❤️❤️❤️

Max I love you buddy. I’m thankful to have had met such a great dog like you. I miss you so much. I miss coming over and you would almost tackle me greeting me. I miss throwing the tennis ball out in the yard. I miss being able to pet you. I miss being able to give you hugs and kisses. I miss hearing you drink water after running outside. I miss everything about you buddy. You never showed your teeth or bit at anyone. You never made someone feel unsafe. You always showed everyone your love and loyalty. I still can’t believe you are gone buddy. You were a gentle giant. I know you aren’t suffering anymore. Thanks for holding on so long and letting me be able to say goodbye to you buddy. I will never ever forget you. You will always be in my mind and heart. Thanks for all the memories you gave me. Especially in the summer time. Thanks for being the dog you were. Thanks for these past 12 years. Rip Maxy Boy. Love your uncle Jake
“I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time? The misery of keeping a dog is his dying so soon. But, to be sure, if he lived for fifty years and then died, what would become of me?”

Losing a pet is the most painful thing that anyone can go through. You’re not only losing a pet you’re losing a friend, a companion, family. I know now that you’re not in pain anymore and that now you’re waiting for us in heaven until the moment we all reunite. Thank you for being such a gentle giant, always obedient and well behaved. I will always remember the first time I saw you and how amazed I was for how big you were but also just how sweet and patient. Thank you for showing what loyalty and love is. Thank you for letting me say goodbye I’ll miss you so much and your mom and dad will miss you always. I love you Max you’ll forever be in my heart. Our family, friend, companion and angel till we meet again sweet boy. Rest in heaven our gentle beast my Maxy boy.Brendaliz Trinidad - January 20, 2020
Even though it’s only been a short amount of time I got to know sweet Maxy, he was such a big goofy love bug. I’m going to miss visiting with him and giving him smooches. He will forever be remembered and in our hearts. ❤️Jordan Koepp - January 20, 2020
Maxy boy, we miss you so much big guy. You were always such a happy boy. Any time I would come over and visit, you were always excited to see me. When we’d pull up to the house for a cookout, we could see you running back and forth on the hill in the backyard, waiting for us to greet you. You could spend hours running around the yard. Whether it was laying by YOUR tree or throwing the tennis ball, if it was summer time, you’d be outside as much as possible. You were always such a sweet boy Max. Always greeting me with kisses wagging your tail when you would see me. Even though you were big guy, you were such a softy. A gentle giant. I have the cutest picture of us where it looks like you have this big cheesy smile on your face. It will be one of my favorites forever. Even though we are ALL missing you, I find relief knowing you are no longer in pain buddy. I have so many fond memories with you and I’ll look back on them with a smile. And until we meet again, I hope you’re at peace, laying in a sunny field with a big tree. Love you maxy boy. Your aunt KaylaKayla Koller - January 20, 2020
