I'm sad

Sign in to follow this  


Max died this morning.

She was our golden retriever. Shelly and I bought her as a puppy about two months into our marriage. She turned 14 years old in March.

Max was our first baby. She was a constant fixture throughout our marriage. She was always affectionate and happy and eager to please and never got tired of being petted and was always ready to cheer you up when you were feeling rotten.

She'd been in declining health over the past couple of years, and over the past few months didn't do much other than sleep and keep a vigil at the kitchen watching for dropped food (which you have plenty of when you've got a 3 year-old).

I'm gonna miss her a lot.

I used to walk a golden retriever when I was in high school; along with my springer spaniel.

My spaniel just turned 10 this year and we've been noticing that she's slowing down a lot lately :(

I'm so sorry to hear about Max. I remember her as a puppy and a full grown dog. She was great!

John- you might want to tell the story about her full registered name. She's known to several people who never met her through that story. It's a great one.

Very sad to hear of your loss, we've got two golden retrievers, and it's impossible not to treat them like members of the family.
