Very sad post today, we lost our little Max on Thursday evening having had to make that awful decision that most of us animal lovers have to endure at some point, but we would never have let him suffer and so we had to let him go. I hope he is running free reunited with Perry his partner in crime for many years and who we still also still miss every day! Our little Max was one big character, not a bad bone in his body, and we are so lucky to have had him in our lives. I knew when I rescued him from the dogs home that he was special and and he sure was, fondly known as squidge, squidglet, little bear, baby boy and Maxwell House he melted my heart every day and the gap he has left at the moment is proving difficult for us to cope with.
Lots of you will remember a few years ago when he nearly lost his life when he was attacked by 2 dogs and the support then was unbelievable and made such a difference and so I felt I wanted to share this with you today.........
This is the last picture I took, RIP little bear, love you forever.
One of my fav pics, catching the sun through the window back in May, so chilled out!
The Rainbow BridgeInspired by a Norse legend, a poem by Steve and Diane Bodofsky
By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,
Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.
Where the friends of man and woman do run,
When their time on earth is over and done.
For here, between this world and the next,
Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.
On this golden land, they wait and they play,
Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.
No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.
They romp through the grass, without even a care,
Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.
For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
Together again, both person and pet.
So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
The time of their parting is over at last.
The sadness they felt while they were apart,
Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
They embrace with a love that will last forever,
And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.
Forgive me peeps but I am going to sign of for a few days , I will catch up with you all soon.
Lots a hugs
