Maxine: 1994-2010



Yesterday morning she couldn't walk anymore.

I had to have her litter mate, Ursa, euthanized two years ago. It was harder this time.

So sorry about your pup. They are *never8 with us long enough, no matter how long we have them.

Thank you, Bruce, for stopping by so we could give our beloved Maxine one last hug. She'll be forever a part of our joy.

I posted this when Ursa left us and do so again, with tears.

"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan."

Oh Bruce....I am so so sorry. I too have had to euthanize my beloved little angels and it is the most heartbreaking - yet loving - thing you can do. She was very very lucky to have you !

I am so sorry Bruce. We went through this recently with our elder dog and it was more painful than words can express. My sincere condolences.
