He's Gone

What we had thought (hoped?) was an infection in Max's gums turned out to be the cancer spreading at a ferocious rate so, sadly, the vet agreed with us. Hubby and I stayed with him until the end, just patting him and loving him.
I'm sure you can imagine how sad our little house in the hills is tonight but we're also remembering lots of fun times as well as the funny things that Max did and we're managing to have a gentle laugh too. Thank you for your kind thoughts and words here, in the emails and on facebook. They really do help.

I sat with my good canine mate till the end too... a good friend of mine is a mobile vet and she - well she was gold - sensitive and caring the whole way through.

It broke my heart Mandi - I cried like I hadn't cried in a long long time...

She now sit's under a tree in the front of the house and every now and then - I have a yarn with her.

She was a good mate and I miss her still - so I can understand where you and your family are right now.

My thoughts are with you eh - I hope he's got a nice warm, comfy place to lie now mate...
