to an old friend. His name was Max. He was our 14 yr old greyhound. The time had come to ease his pain. I remember when we got Max almost 9 years ago. It was New Years Eve day and we took our mutt Sadie to Companion Greyhounds in Marietta, Georgia to see if her and Max could get along. They brought Max out in the yard and he and Sadie started to chase each other and check each other out. After all was said and done they got along famously. We loaded up Max for the ride to his new forever home. Max had been returned previously because he was skittish. The truth was he was done right scared of just about everything. But we worked through it all and he got to be a rather confident dog. I remember the first time I heard him bark, it was this deep bellowing sound that caught me by surprise. He didn't do it much, but when he did it got your attention. Max was there to welcome our 2nd grey Vogue, our IG Higgins, and our 3rd Grey Egypt. He has always been a great ambassador for the greyhound breed. He was a sweet and gentle boy. When guest would be at the house he would come in and greet everyone then return to the bedroom and sleep. You only had to tell him "no" once and he would not what ever it was again. He was a great dog and will be missed by us all.

 

We love you, Max

Ahhhh Max, I am so sorry you had to leave your family so soon. But there will be wonderful playmates for you waiting at the bridge. Run free!

Missing my sweet girl Scout. My snuggler, my chow-hound, my kissy girl.
It never thunders at the Bridge, and your food bowl is ALWAYS filled.

So strange not living in Atty World. I was a love struck handmaiden to your every whim.
