Marx (3/28/00 - 9/12/12)


Recommended Posts

I never thought this day would come :( Marx chose us to be his forever home in 2003 and there was no looking back after that! We knew he would be perfect with us and able to tolerate a very sassy/bossy female greyhound Lily. Lily had to leave us a few years ago at the age of 12 and Marx adjusted to being an only dog beautifully, I actually think he preferred it, except on walkies when he would look for Lily as a sense of comfort to walk beside. If a dog could be described as a perfect dog, Marx was it! No doubt! I could go on and on about him as all greyhound/animal lovers can about their pets.


Marx today our hearts are broken, but we knew you were ready to go to the Rainbow Bridge, your job here on earth was done. You were needed elsewhere and without hesitation daddy and me did right by you sweety. Life will never be the same, but we will go on. You will always be in our hearts and soul, there will be tears and laughter, that's ok, but in the end we were blessed you choose us to be your family. Thank you Marx, you meant the world to us. I am doing ok, but your daddy is beyond heartbroken and I wish I could make the hurt stop for him, the bond the two of you shared was amazing. Every night when it was time for bed, daddy would say "Marx wanna go nite nite?", on cue you would go to the bottom of the stairs and wait for your human chariot to lift you up and take you to your king size sleep # throne! (Marx was a #55 btw :) )


Run like the wind handsome boy....Lily, Bobby, Dewy, Mr. Murph, Baily and of course Java were all there to greet you at the bridge, give them smooches for us Doodles. Send us a rainbow when you can sweet boy. We love you and will miss you.

Praying for all the missing greys!

It's clear that you loved him deeply and understand how blessed you were that he was a part of your life. Those wonderful memories help to ease the pain a bit, even when your heart is breaking.

I'm so sorry you lost your perfect boy, Marx.

I saw your post on FB but we had not connected there so I couldn't post my condolences. I always thought of Lily and Marx as almost one. Every time I saw Lily's name I automatically would think Marx. I was so sad when Lily passed and now Marx. The two are together again. I'm so very sorry that you have lost your sweet, beautiful boy. Godspeed Marx, you will be missed.

What a sweet tribute. Run free Marx and deepest sympathy to those he left behind. You are missed. f_yellow

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.
