Our Angel Pawprints
27th May 2000 – 24th December 2009
My first dog. Max was a dog who enjoyed his walks the most. He loved to go seek an imaginary mouse, pouncing like a gazelle through the undergrowth “whats that” or run circuits “round you go”. He loved going on the beach he knew he would get to go “splish splash” and “dig dig dig.”. Max had an amazing character and was incredibly intelligent. A total joy to take out on a walk.
Max will always hold a special place in my heart as he saw me through so much in his lifetime. When my daughter was born he helped her at bath times, making it fun we blew bubbles at him for him to catch. At bedtime Max knew he had the job of being there for our little girl laying by her cot so she could see him. Her first word was “Dats” for Max.
When my beloved brother died it was Max who knew how many tears I shed, as I walked endlessly around the field wondering why life was so cruel? If it hadn’t of been for Max I don’t think I would have made it out the front door. His coat quite often would be sodden from my tears. He knew the pain I was in and he took it all without question.
Bless you Max, my ‘”slightly” neurotic Stripey Boy. I wouldn’t have wanted you any other way.
Have fun at the bridge sweet boy and “ROUND YOU GO” pain free now.

To my childhood dogs…
Kerry aged 10, Lyn aged 13 and Sheena aged 17. All of which were Border Collies. Special little girls all played a big part in my love of animals. Helping me choose the path I have taken in life.
One day I will see you all again xx
