Good-bye darling Maxdog of South Africa, you now belong to the Universe

Today we celebrate the life of darling Maxdog of South Africa. If you judge the impact that a life has made while on earth by the tears shed upon its death, then this dog, this Golden Retriever who lived in South Africa, was a hurricane - a tsunami - a tornado - an earthquake of monumental proportion.

Tonight my precious Max, I will stand under the midnight sky and will look for the newest, brightest and biggest star in the heavens. I will reach up and touch you - for the first time.

That was just beyond beautiful...the post and the song. So many hearts are broken but Max will live forever in our hearts. It's just amazing the impact this dog had on so many people...and we've never met him. I feel so honored his mom let us in on their journey.

What a lovely tribute to a Golden that touched so many. We also lost one of our senior Goldens this weekend, so I know all too well what they are feeling. It is never easy, but it does help when there are those that understand.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Your tribute to Max is beautiful and the songs- so beautiful.
The whole world was touched by Max.
And now we must find a way to go on.
It is now dark, and I am going out to climb the highest mountain, and gaze into the sky for the brightest star as it twinkles in the sky.
And I hope I can see it through my tears

YD, sometimes with ♥Samantha and ♥June said...

Try, try again... Thanks for coming over and visiting us in Corgi Country. We thought we would come over and stand with you as with so many others around the world that are trying to step up and support Max's Mom with our love for that is the greatest tribute to his life... that he left so many to love and support his family here when he went ahead.
