you will be missed

My love Maxie left us last Wednesday, she was my best friend, my companion, my everything. She is the first pet I have lost while being old enough to really understand what it means...and it has been one of the most devastating things I have had to go through. I remember getting a chocolate brown leash before going to the pound, knowing that I was going to be picking out a dog. When I first laid eyes on this beautiful chocolate brown puppy, with the sweetest smile and softest ears, I knew that a lifelong love was found in her, and of course that my leash matched her fur perfectly!! We had shared our lives together for the past 13 or so years, I grew up with her, took her everywhere, snuggled her at night, and knew in my heart that I would do anything for her. To have to lose her, and feel like I couldn't 'save' her still haunts me, and I have a feeling will continue to haunt me....I can only dream that she is happy, healthy, pain free, roaming in an open field of wild flowers with her toys and many abundant apple trees....and most of all, I can only hope that she knows how very deeply I loved her and that I will always love her. I just hope she isn't lonely, that is the most heartbreaking feeling of all.
Maxie you will always be in our hearts, we love you forever and always.

:: peace and love ::

Yes, most of all I miss walking in the house and have a smile, wagging tail and lots of love to greet me.
Her paw prints are left on our hearts.

Oh, I'm so sorry! Losing a dog is incredibly difficult - give yourself some time to grieve. It might take a while. When I lost my beloved fox terrier, I cried every time I saw someone with one for the next three years. Luckily, you don't see them too often.

I am so sorry for your loss Katie. It's very hard to lose a beloved animal/family member. You, your family, and your beautiful baby Maxie are in my thoughts.

I love you.
