A boy and his dog

Our morning conversation:

Becks- HA! Look mom, Max's toy in his bowl (placed there recently to slow down his eating and inhaling of food which was increasing due to the unknown brain lesions)
Me- Yep, that's his. Silly dog. (choking back tears)

Becks bounces ball across the tile floor.

Becks- Max can hear that.
Me- That's right he can (openly crying). You know, you can tell him you love him out loud any time you want. He will always be able to hear you.

If only every child was blessed with a Max, what a happy place this earth would be.


  1. Awwwww sweet baby!!!!

  2. I am crying with you.
    Max looks so much like my Greicy-Poo (Greighson) that it just kills me. And that American boxer personality is so easy to love - I can't wait to get home tonight to hold my Greicy.
    I am so sad for you and so sorry.

  3. Im sure Max has many balls at the bridge :)


  4. I'm bawling - I'm so sorry for your loss. I cry thinking about the day I have to say goodbye to one of ours and what I'm going to say to my son. Max was so lucky to have your family.

  5. I don't think I've commented before, but I've been crying over your last few posts and the loss of your sweet Max. I am so sorry that you had to say goodbye to him way too early and that your son and he did not have the chance to share more memories together. I hope that when it's time to say goodbye to my beloved dog, I possess the strength and grace you demonstrated when you let Max go. My heart goes out to you.

  6. You just brought tears to my eyes. You tell in the pictures how much they loved each other.

  7. We just discovered Maximus, and now he's gone. We're so very sorry. But we're glad he had a life so filled with love and good care. And we're glad he's left you so many wonderful memories; no one is truly dead as long as there is someone alive who remembers them with love.
