In Memory of Max (Maxamillion Thanksabillion)
My name is Nicole. I am Paige's "Other Mother". Today is a sad day. Paige's cousin, Max, found his place in Puppy Heaven. Max came to my family in 1991 as a very gregarious pup of 12 weeks. The black lab, shepard mix stole our hearts right away. It took us about a week to name him because nothing really suited him, but someone said the name Max and it just worked. We went through a lot with Max but when I look back on it...it was worth it...and I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. Max had been living with my brother Pete and his wife for the majority of his life and he was taken care of very well. So well, that we actually contribute his long life to the care he was given. Unfortunately, Paige and Max never met, but as Julie ("The Ma") said, now Paige has a guardian angel to watch over her. I told her tonight that she had to be extra good until Max finds his place and makes new friends and gets settled in heaven. Max will be missed greatly by our entire family. He was the 24/7 shoulder to cry on, he was always ready for hugs (and fortune cookies). He was loving, trusting, protective, and just all around a WONDERFUL dog. I was proud to be a part of his life.
Love you Max...be a good boy.
May you live in heaven by a waterfall of fortune cookies.
