      I hope no one minds if I put a brief eulogy to my birth mom’s dog, whom we lost this last weekend.

      I received an email from my birth mother’s cousin yesterday. Some of you may remember that I had posted awhile back that the dog, a cocker spaniel named Max, was in the last stages of heart disease and that it would probably not be long before he passed, most likely in his sleep.

      Sadly, he was having trouble breathing this last week and she had been having to rush him to the vet quite a few times. She was urged to euthanize him, but could not bring herself to do this. It looks like on Saturday (if I’m reading the mail right) she was driving him in because he was unable to breathe and apparently the vet had closed up early, (whether on purpose or not, I don’t know-she did not like this vet but had little choice of care for this dog in the town she lives in and due to restricted finances), so he must’ve passed away in the car. Having gone through something like this myself, I can only imagine her horror. She had to bring him back home and I guess my birth mom’s cousin happened to call last night and heard the story. Apparently my birth mom is in quite a state. I can’t blame her, I would be too.

      I have not heard from her directly but my guess is she is too distraught. Max was her only companion since the death of her mom some years ago (from cancer) and we often referred to him as my “furry little brother.” I do not have a current picture of him, and no idea where the older pix of him that I do have are, but he was your basic buff cocker spaniel, with a lot of attitude and definitely had been someone who kept my birth mom going.

      Even though I never got to truly know him, I will miss him, as I would miss any dear companion animal who suddenly crosses the Rainbow Bridge, and leaves us feeling lost and empty, but for the knowledge that this beloved one is now in a better place, free from pain and distress, and that perhaps we shall meet again.

      Goodbye, Maxie. Be a good boy, okay? I know you’ll still be watching over mom, like you always have.

      Oh no! I’m sorry to hear this! I will keep your mother in my thoughts. That is a difficult thing to go thru.

      Sorry to hear about the loss of Max. It’s so hard to lose a pet because they are really the best of friends. What other friend asks nothing more than to be loved. {{{{Hugs to your Mom}}}}}

      Oh, I am so sorry to hear about your birth mom’s dog, Max.

      Bye Bye Maxie – hopefully enjoying whatever  the otherside has to offer – I like to think of lots of kongs, compfy cloud beds, and plenty of walkies!   

      Hugs and healing vibes for your B-mom.

      Wow you telling him to be a good boy, ok? made me cry. I will go cuddle with my dog now… it’s so sad that they live for such a short amount of time.

      Thank you all for your caring thoughts. Yes Sibley, I think it’s sad too, but then we have opportunity to give and receive love from so many if we choose. However I think my mom’s not likely to get another dog, it just isn’t something she can handle again at her age.
      I love the post somewhere here in Support that I think Bigsis left for us called You Chose Tears. It is a wonderful tribute and I may copy it to send to my mom.
