12/26/2005 - 11/20/2016Dearest Maxx:

If words could only describe how much you are missed. The tears, pain and feelings of emptiness serve as a testament to the impact you had in our lives. You were far more than a pet. You were a family member, our protector, our strength and our closest friend. You made our house a home and you filled our hearts with joy and happiness. You were so handsome, brave, your strength immeasurable and you were so graceful in your actions. The love you gave is so sorely missed along with having you by our side.

It will take time to heal - for the silence to go away. We still listen for you and miss you every minute of every day. The house is so quiet without you. We miss hearing your toes click on the floor, watching you nudge your food bowl with your nose, the sound of you crunching on your kibbles and that intent stare as you begged for us to share our dinner. We miss taking you for walks, our midnight trips to the beach, watching you from the window as we pulled away in the car and hearing your excited bark when we arrived home. We miss staring into those soulful eyes, your compassionate kisses and waking up in the morning to pet you, talk to you and tell you how much we love you. We miss drinking our coffee on the porch together, watching you lay in the sun to later discover you resting comfortably, curled up on our bed pillows.

You are forever in our hearts and will never be forgotten. You made us better people. We never wanted this day to come. We would do anything for you and to have you back. We still and forever will look to you for strength, guidance and more than anything to know that you are once again healthy, safe, comfortable and happy!!! We are blessed to have had you in our lives and to have shared this journey together - thank you! We love you to the moon and back!!!

May you forever live in our hearts and memories. Until we meet again buddy, our greatest of love!!!

I will miss Maxx waiting at the gate for his treat. His tail wagging and a smile on his face. And, of course the doughnuts we shared. He brought so much joy into our lives. He was the epitome of why we love animals. Maxx was not only your companion, he was everyones friend. Loyal and loving. We will hold him to our heart and always smile in remembrance. Love you Maxx, see you on the other side.Lonnie Speck - November 27, 2016
