Max already had a few years under his belt before I met him. I fell in love with him the first day he came into my family. I had two other dogs Rambo and Teddy and he fit right in! Max was the smartest dog I ever met and did things all the other dogs never did. They had a pool and a backyard to roam around. When it was time to round them up and call them inside you’d always find Max and the weirdest places. He would have jumped up on top of a chair that was next to the grill and then be lying up on the grill. Or inside the house if you are folding laundry and you got up for a second you’d find him inside the laundry basket falling asleep. I had a baby gate up and he jumped it and from that day forward I never kept him out of my bedroom and he slept with me every night. I know people say pets are just pets but he was my true soulmate ❤️❤️❤️ I was walking him less than a week before his passing. I got another year out of him after taking him to the vet and he was diagnosed with collapsing trachea and a heart murmur. He got better with a little hydrocodone and is hacking went away. Almost a year and he started having symptoms again but when I took him this time he had fluid around his heart and I didn’t want to see him suffer. I made the difficult decision that day 7/9/24 to put my baby to rest. I can tell you it hurts like hell I’m a grown 47 year old man and I cry every minute I get and I’m not ashamed to admit that. My love is undying for that dog and it will last beyond eternity if that’s possible. I love you my baby boy may you rest in peace in the hands of God and I’ll see you again someday
