We are so sorry to hear about Max. We too had a lovely Dobermann, Prince, who ran over the Rainbow Bridge three years ago aged 12.

We still miss him very much, but have now got a Shepherd/Lab. cross to help fill the tremendous gap in our lives that he left.

Hope it is of some comfort to know that many of us are thinking of you.

So sorry to hear of your sad loss, remember all of the many good times you had together

Animals are such agreeable friends, they don`t ask questions and they never criticise

Thanks to all who have replied to my post. I feel proud that we became his forever home. Whilst we are fit enough to exercise a dog properly, we will have another one. The house is just so empty, and walking alone is just not the same. I really need to get out every day - my job is pretty sedentary - and a dog gives the motivation required. Besides all the other benefits that having a dog brings. I hope to get another rescue dog, but might wait until our summer travels are over, then we can focus on settling a new dog in. The question is can I wait that long???

So very sorry to hear of your loss. It is a dreadful time when you lose your best friend. Remember all of the good times and how lucky you were to have had him and loved him. Run free at the bridge Max. Tell Henry I still miss him every day.
My advice would be go rescue another dog he won't be Max but he will have his own character and you will love him too.

Thanks folks, it's such a comfort to know that others share my sorrow. We have all been blessed to have had Rosie, Pippin, Prince, Henry and Max in our lives. One of my all time favourite books is Alan Cohen's 'Are you as happy as your dog'? Dogs are. They don't care about your skin colour, you sexuality or your religion. Do you treat them right? Yes? Then they will love and adore you. They don't pretend or answer back. If they're happy you see you they wag their tail. Hurt them, and they never forget. They are deeply grateful if you cook chicken for their breakfast when they're feeling unwell. I could go on, but all of you who love your dogs know what I mean. xx

So sorry to hear your sad news cypsygal, Run free Max

I lost a treasured friend today

The little dog who used to lay

Her gentle head upon my knee

And shared her silent thoughts with me.


Shell come no longer to my call

Retrieve no more her favourite ball

A voice far greater than my own

Has called her to his golden throne.


Although my eyes are filled with tears

I thank him for the happy years

He let her spend down here with me

And for her love and loyalty.


When it is time for me to go

And join her there, this much I know

I shall not fear the transient dark

For she will greet me with a bark.

Just returned from a few days away so have just read your news. So sorry about Max. He can't be replaced, but there is another rescue out there who needs to give and receive the love you shared with Max so look forward to another dog. You'll know the time's right when you meet him/her.

Run free at the bridge big boy.
