Saying good bye to Max.

We had to put our dear sweet Golden Retriever, Max, to "sleep."   He was only 3&1/2 years old, but he had cancer.  We had the first lump removed while I was in Colombia, but when the 2nd lump came so quickly, and on one of his nerves in his hip, there was nothing we could do.  He was in pain, and it was heartbreaking to see him suffer.  I have never really liked a dog before, but I REALLY liked Max, {or Maxey boy as I affectionately called him.}  We are sad, but we know and love a few HUMANS who have cancer, and are fighting for their lives right now, so it helps to keep things in perspective. He was the best dog, and will be missed!!

Here are a couple of links to blogs of some families we know who are dealing with cancer, I know they would appreciate your prayers.

Sorry to hear about Max, our chocolate lab died last fall. He was 11, our oldest was heart broken. We found out after our youngest is alergic to dogs and were hopeful to adopt a rescue, but we couldnt be sure of the bread. When your family is ready, e-mail me becasue we fell in LOVE with a lab mix that is just south of you in IN. We all cried when we left because we knew our youngest would be allergic. He is the sweetest thing and we would love for him to find a home!
