May 11th, 2016 had been a very, very sad day for my beloved spouse, John and I. (*tears*)
Our dearest, darling and beloved pet, Maxi had gone to heaven, a better place where there’s no more pain and suffering. He had been sick for about 2 months with a weak heart and lungs, worsening as time progressed with water retention in his lungs.
It had been an ordeal seeing him suffering. R.I.P our lovable and adorable boy!
A poem by unknown author in tribute to our darling Maxi, a miniature pinscher….
“You no longer greet me,
As I walk through the door.
You’re not there to make me smile,
To make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you,
You were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend
. . . a loving soul I’ll never forget.
It will take time to heal –
For the silence to go away.
I still listen for you,
And miss you every day.
You were such a great companion,
Constant, loyal and true.
My heart will always wear,
the pawprints left by you.”
Another shot of him taken this morning. He was embraced by our Loving Father into heaven at about 3 o’clock in the afternoon.
Thank you so much, darling Maxi for giving us so much laughter, joy and happiness for ten and a half years.
For dog years, it’ll be equivalent to 73½ years with us, that is, 10.5 multiply by 7.
And, we praise and thank God too for the gift of Maxi in our golden years.
We miss you so very much, our beloved and adorable boy!!
