Rest In Peace – Maxxie – December 20, 2012

It was a sad day for me, personally, as I held my long-time pet and companion in my arms as we put him down to sleep forever. Here are a few videos over the years, including one taken yesterday morning with my smartphone. I spent most of Maxxie’s last day with Maxxie, as well as taking many photos and video’s for my private collection and memories.


Our vet said he has an injury on his eye which didn’t heal and now the iris is poking through. The build up of fluids behind his eye is what causes the weeping and the pain and he is in pain. She said it’s going to get a lot worse, no chance of healing. In addition to the pain from his exploding eye, he was having problems walking with a spinal injury and arthritis, deafness and other ailments and it would have been too late to save the eye. We did not want him to suffer during the Holidays, where immediate emergency care may not be available.

    I know that it is especially tough during the holidays when you lose a friend who has been with you for so many years. Treasure the good times always and know during the tough days that you were loved with that special affection that only a dog can provide.

    Hart, my sincerest condolences. Our small fur-babies definitely liven our lives, bringing such joy for such small bundles.

    I’m glad to see you have photos and video.

    Sometimes it is so heartbreaking to do the right thing. No animal could ask for better humans. Fond memories to bring you cheer this holiday season Hart. Thank you for easing the suffering.
