Maximus had to be put to sleep Friday.  He was 14.  His health had fallen off badly in the past couple of weeks--Mom thinks it was possible he had a stroke.  He was a good dog.  There have been a lot more tears the past couple of days than I'd have thought.  Given my work schedule, and the fact I live in an apartment, I don't have a dog.  Max was my folks' dog.  But, I thought of him as mine, too.

He grew up in a time of camera phone.  I have hundreds of pictures of him.  He was a photogenic cuss.

He was a good dog.

I've looked at the last one in line here, or some version of it, a couple dozen times in the past couple of days, and it makes me wan to cry every time.

Max was my buddy.  I'm gonna miss him.

The Stew-man is a black pug of 14. He is slowing down badly. But he is still Mr Mann.

See a photo with his runnin' buddy; a 7 pound micro-Doxie at my blog:

Sorry to hear of you and your parent's loss.

We had to put our "old man" down two months ago. Our oldest still talks about him and asks about him.
