In Memory of our Max...

by Kim
(Rockville MD)

My beautiful wheaten terrier Max was diagnosed with acute kidney failure shortly after I returned from vacation last month. His condition worsened rapidly and I was forced to make the decision to put him to sleep. No one can ever be prepared for this! My heart will forever be broken.

He was the love of my life and gave me purpose every day. I miss the way he smells, the way he used to look at me on walks, he followed me everywhere. Now that he's gone, everywhere I go and everything I do makes me think of him. The loss is so great, it seems overwhelming and consuming. I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but I don't see how there can be if Max isn't there. I miss my little guy so much! I just pray he's in a happy place.

Never easy

I too just put my Zoey to sleep. It's a week today but my grief is just becoming more unbearable. Kidney disease and heart failure is a difficult combination to treat and I should've been better educated on how to balance treatment. She could've lived longer. The guilt is consuming me and all I can think is that she wanted me to help her live longer and I let her down. I hope Max and Zoey are waiting for us at the rainbow bridge

Max is with God

You will see him again. He's happy and no longer in pain, and watching you, concerned about your grief. Send him love and light every time you think of him. You will meet again.

I'm sorry for you loss of Max hes passed over the rainbow bridge and out of pain I'm sure. I now how you feel as I have lossed my cat misty to kidney disease on the 28th June 2016 her jaundice was so bad and her being sick that I couldn't allow her to suffer anymore. Like you I feel so alone as had another cat to and its so quiet at home now as they use to meow all the time and follow me its so horrible them not being their.As time goes on time will ease that longing for them and maybe with your feelings about Max. I do believe they are around me and their spirits but its still hard not seeing them and the comfort they bring. I understand your pain from a fellow mourner and pet lover Zoe
