As soon as we saw you we knew we had to have you. We stayed at the pet store and bonded with you for 4 hours. Then we took you home, you adjusted so well and became part of our family. You greeted everyone with a sniff (we won't say where)and adjusted to each new grandchild as they appeared into our family. You went to work with dad everyday at first, you so loved to ride in the truck and then it tappered off and you were able to stay home and rest. Then along came Maddie Lynn, she just appeared at Dad's work all thin and hungry so we brought her home, rescued her just like we did you. You welcomed her into your home with open paws. Now you had company and a little sister. The two of you were never far behind each other. You taught her how to let us know when she needed to go out or needed anything. The two of you grew old together, now Maddie just walks around in a daze she misses you so much. We so miss you and your little ways of telling me you are hungry or the way you would go into the garage and stand by my car telling me you wanted to go for a ride around the lake. We miss you playing with your soft Raider football and throwing it in the air to get our attention and play. We miss you taking the wet bath towel from the bathroom and washing your face with it spreading it out just right so that you can wash your face. You taught Maddie to do the very same thing with a towel. Maxxi you were so smart, I knew what you needed or wanted just by you looking at me. The bond will never be broken and I can't wait to see you again some day. You got so sick so fast that we could not see you suffer any longer. I was with you till the end and held you in my arms so very tight as not to let you go. There is an empty space in our hearts and our hearts are still so very wet. Run and play our beloved Maxx continue to wash your face and we will see you someday again.|
Love Mom and Dad Maddie Girl
Hello again my Gentle Giant, it's only been a few days since I entered you on Rainbows Bridge and already you have many moms and dads signing your guest book from all over. Dad and I miss you so much and Maddie girl is just not herself she will not even eat out of your bowl any more since you have been gone, I had to buy her a new one and she still refuses to eat in the same place your bowl was, I have to put it on the floor by her bed. Remember when she would eat right along with you in the same bowl, that was so cute and being the gentle giant you are you did not even care, if you did not get enough food you would just let me know. I miss you Maxx so much, I miss getting up early with you and make sure you ate, even though I had to give you 9 pills in the morning and 9 more in the afternoon and then 5 in the evening I knew they were just keeping your little heart going and somewhat comfortable, you had good days and bad I miss them all. I know you are feeling great now and waiting for us to cross the bridge so that all the furbabies can come to greet us. Oh by the way Maxxi it's that time of year for the watermelon eat all you want now. We love you our Gentle Giant Maxx.
Love Mommy XO
Hello Maxxi dog mommy misses you and I'm sorry I have not come to visit you for 3 days. Yesterday I went with sissy and the kids to Santa Cruz to play on the beach. It was relaxing and Austin and Serena, Henacee and RJ had a blast. I still feel so empty without you but when I came home Maddie girl had not even eaten, but she sure did as soon as I held the bowl for her. Daddy stayed home with her but he could not get her to eat. Please send your love to her and let her know it is okay and all will be fine. We may go in the big truck (motorhome) that you loved so much to the lake and just relax and sit in the sun. We will think of you and how you would lay in front of the camp and keep us all safe. You would stand there like a Gentle Giant just looking around and watching people go by and other dogs too. You were such a good Boy, no barking just looking around. It will not be the same without you Maxx, We love you and miss you very much. Mommy isn't feeling very well today I think I got too much sun. Love and kisses to my Maxxi dog and to all your friends.
Hi my sweet boy, how are you today? Mommy and Daddy are just getting along as good as we can. We miss you so very much but you know that and I feel your presence sometimes so please give us strength to get through every day. Father's day came and went we had sissy and the kids over and even Rosemary and Alexis brought Kali over for Maddy Girl to play with but neither of them played it was hot and too many people around. You were missed Maxxwell we so wish you were here. Well, tomarrow is the 22nd and you have been gone from us for 2 months and it seems like you were here yesterday. We are going to try to go see Dr.MacKie VCA in Sacramento your great Dr. and give him a gift that Daddy made in your honor. You know how he likes to make those ceramic fire hydrant lamps and he completed your urn it is so beautiful you will love it Maxx. We are just not ready to move you to it yet. We also will donate a fire hydrant cookie jar so the staff can put treats in it for all the dogs who come to visit the Dr's. We will also leave a fire hydrant urn in case someone might need it if they can't afford one. VCA, Dr. MacKie and all the staff were so good to you and us they are just great. This will be the last time we will visit them in your honor Maxx. I love you Maxxwell and wish you were here but I know you are feeling great and having lots of fun so until later all my love XO
Mom and dad

Hi my Maxxi dog, it has been 8 days since I wrote and I'm so sorry. we had somewhat of a good time at the lake. Maddie Girl is sick and we will take her to the vet on Saturday and see if we can help her cope with the loss of you a little better. I'm babysitting the kids while sissy is away and she will come home on Saturday so I can go home. I miss Maddie and Daddy very much. I think of you every day Maxx in hopes I get some sign of you or just a smell of your popcorn paws that I miss so much a long with your kisses. I miss giving you your so loved massages that would put you to sleep right on my lap on the floor. Even as sick as you were you never stopped giving me such joy and love, Maxx I miss you so much!! it hurts so bad however I know you are happy and playing and have no more pain and for that I'm so grateful and I know you feel the love everyday that I send your way...XOXO love you Maxxwell and I will visit you soon later.
Love Mom xoxo
Hello my Maxxi dog, I love you and miss you so much. I hope you are eating lots of watermelon and having a great time. Maddie Lynn is doing better with the meds the Dr gave her for her allergy. The 4th was not the same without you, we just stayed in the house with the TV loud so that Maddie would not be scared. We are staying home this week and not going in the big truck to the lake just to make sure Maddie Girl recovers enough before we go anywhere. Daddy is doing okay, still has not put you in the fire hydrant urn he made just for you it is very nice. When we are ready we will move you. When I was at sissy's house Derber stayed very close to me and would not leave my side. He knew I was sad and missing you. He tried to keep me busy all the time throwing the yellow fire hydrant toy we got him for Christmas. Oh, Maxx I know you are at home now in peace and pain free, and I'm so glad I miss you so much I send all my love to you and all the kisses,massages,hugs,paw rubs to you whenever you want them. I love you our Gentle Giant Maxxwell till later XOXOX
Love Mom and Dad Maddie Lynn

Today I will take her for a ride around the lake, just like you loved to do so much. Oh how I wish you could come with us, but you will be there with us in your form and we will feel your presence and love. Daddy does not say much but I catch him with tears in his eyes and know what he is thinking and missing. We love you baby boy please feel our love.

Mommy and Maddie Girl xo
Hi Maxxwell, I love you baby boy and I still miss you so much. I took Maddie Girl for a ride today to get the mail, she loved it just like you did. I have you on my mind today all day like everyday but today I was cleaning and Maddie started barking for no reason, just looking around and barking, I hope you were sending us a sign, telling her it was okay. You know she did not bark until you did then she would join in and bark with you. Now she is all brave and starting to bark loud by herself. I love you Maxxi and miss you so much I can hardly stand it. I know you are having fun and feeling great, I'm so grateful for that but can't help missing you so much and wishing you were here with me. Goodnight for now my baby boy and I will come back to visit soon.
Love Mommy xoxoxox
Hi my sweet boy, it has been 3 months today that you crossed over to the bridge and our hearts are still very wet, we think of you everyday all day. The cute things you did like dumping over your basket of toys so that you and Maddie could play. That basket has not been moved and Maddie will not play with the toys..yet I hope she will soon. I even gave her your Raider football to play with but she won't even touch it so I put it away for later. I really miss you washing your face with the wash cloth, that was so cute. I miss all the time we spent together Maxxwell you are my best friend and I love you so much. I miss seeing you laying in the grass with the sun shinning on you and your coat shines so black it looks blue, oh how beautiful you are Maxx, Daddy and I are okay, we miss you but understand you are having a wonderful time with all the other fur angels you have met. And we can't wait till we meet again and I can kiss your face. You touched our hearts in a way that we will never forget and you came into our life when we needed you the most. Well, my fur baby until I visit again play hard rest well and eat good and remember how loved you are and feel the love we send to you everyday.
Love Mom and Dad Maddie Lynn XOXO
Hi baby boy, does it ever get easier? I miss you so much it still hurts so bad. Maddie Girl is doing much better these days. We took her to the lake this past week and just got home yesterday. We took you with us too. We took Maddie girl on lots of long walks and to all the places you liked and then she led the way. I remember when we would stop at the store you would hop up in the drivers seat of the motorhome and Maddie would get in my seat it looked like you were ready to drive so big and proud sitting up there. Things are not the same without you Maxx we miss you so much. We saw lots of dogs but Maddie couldn't care less none of them were her bubby. I'm so sad I love you so much Maxxi dog and miss you till it hurts each and everyday. I can't wait till it is my time to cross the bridge and have you running up to greet me...along with Max Sr. I know he is there with you and having fun running and playing. Well Bubby, it's time for me to go now, I will come visit later and feel the love I send you everyday all day and all the kisses on your kissing spots on each side of your face...love you till it hurts

I know you have met many friends and playing hard these days..hope you are enjoying all that watermelon you love so much. Maddie Lynn is doing much better these days, today is the first day she picked up her pink sqeaky puppy and made all kinds of noise with it...this is a good sign and she has stopped licking her paws..so they are healing. Sorry bubba it has taken 12 days to talk to you Mommy has not been feeling well but I'm okay now. And having PC problems with sending e mail so some of the wonderful people who signed your guest book and said such beautiful things about you I can't get the e mails to send yet..but I will soon. Maxxwell so many thoughtful and kind people read your story and send Mommy and Daddy nice cards and say such nice things and many of them are going through the same thing we are, they also lost a loved one so Maxxi all those new friends you are pawing it up with!! I'm talking to their Moms and Dads how cool is that? So remember how much we love you baby boy and play and run with all your new friends and I will talk to you later I love you Maxxwell xoxox
Hello again my Maxxi dog, I love you Mommy's boy. I miss you so much, I have been sick and so wished you were by my side like you always were when I was not feeling well. I'm much better now and I know you are just kicking up your big popcorn paws running and having all kinds of fun. Maddie Lynn is all better now too she still sleeps a lot but she is getting older and slower. On Monday the 22nd you crossed the bridge 4 months ago and it seems like it was just today...the pain..oh the pain still goes on and on. The 22nd is also sissy Toni's birthday, she will be 34 wow...that went by fast too seems like I just had her..Daddy is doing okay, trying to keep busy. We just miss you so Maxxi I don't think we will recover..Well my boy I will close for now I need to go to the store, I love you Maxx and can't wait until we are together again..
Love Mommy,Daddy,Maddie Lynn XOXO
Hello my baby boy RIP today it has been 4 months since you crossed over the bridge we miss you so much. Yesterday for the first time since you have been gone Maddie Girl washed her face on a wet towel from the bathroom, she has not done this since you left. Did you tell her it was okay?? Something changed with her she is a little more spunky.. I'm sure she feels your presence and touch. I love you Maxx, miss you, and pray everyday I get more strength to get through the days. I will close for now, Maxxi dog and will talk to you soon...Love you much xoxoxoxox
Mommy kisses XOXOXO
Hello my angel Maxxi dog, it has been a week since I wrote, I'm feeling much better and getting over whatever I had. How are you my sweet fur angel? having a great time I know, no pain no more pills to take,and Mommy not begging you to eat or putting scrambled egg on your paw so that you would lick it off. But I do remember you always liked those pears and apples in the jar you would eat those right up and loved the juice too. I miss you Maxxwell.. Your sister is doing just fine she does need a bath so as soon as I'm up to it I will bath her. I miss bathing you Maxx you were so good and just stood there and all I had to say was "lift" and you would lift each paw so that I could wash them and you loved the warm water and I would massage your back when I put the conditioner on. I never got your face wet, I washed it with a wash cloth and cleaned your ears with baby shampoo, you did not like the water in your face.After you were bathed you were so soft and beautiful, your fur shined so black it looked blue.Well I need to close for now its time for bed, run, play, have lots of fun Maxxi and until we meet again I love you and miss you so much it still hurts not to have you by my side, but I know you are very happy where you are and you have no pain and that is what I am most relieved about you will never have any more pain..the pain that I have is just not having you by my side, I know you are still by my side in a different way. So my Gentle Giant, I send much love to you XO and kisses and hugs Daddy and Maddie Girl send their love too. Love Mommy XO
Happy Birthday my baby boy I love you RIP Maxxwell xo
Hi my baby boy,I have to share with you that a really nice person who visited your guest book sent me the most beautiful poem from you with her help and I read it everyday. It helps me get through the days. Well summer is almost over for us but I know for you and all your fur friends you will continue to romp in the sunlight and play all day with no change how wonderful is that. I wish nothing better for you than to continue to play and have a great time you deserve it Maxxi dog. You were so good to us for so many years and we continue to miss you so. I guess I'm being a little selfish, because I want you by my side but I know you are having too much fun where you are and that is a good thing, a very good thing. Your sister Maddie is just fine now she still sleeps a lot but I think she is bored but she is good. Oh and before I forget, You will be remembered at Best Friends Angels of Rest on Sept 29th you and thousands of other fur angels will be remembered and I sent a picture of you on a tribute card its like a prayer flag and Maxx listen for the thousand wind chimes saying I love you always and forever. All tribute flags are hung and many visitors and volunteers, caregivers will say a prayer for each one. To have you was the best thing ever and I will always remember you Maxx and never break the bond or say good-bye. Well Maxx I love you so much and miss you feel the love we send everyday and we send lots of it...until we meet again I love you XOXO

Hi Maxxi Dog, its Mommy checking in to say Hi and that I love you so much and miss you. Remembering today when so much life was lost 10 years ago and how you and I sat on the couch and watched all the devistation on the TV and that night you stayed right by my side as I cried all night. We have come a long way in 10 years and again watching it on TV is still so sad and you are not by my side is even harder, you are with me just not in the same way. Auntie Vicki was over this weekend and it was nice to see her and we took Maddie to pet extreme to bath her she was getting stinky so she needed a bath she was okay with it and she looks so pretty.
