I wanted to take a second to talk about Max. My good friend Natasha (over at Breathing & Butter) lost her best friend yesterday. I lived with Natasha, and her two dogs Max and Pazzo, for the first two years I was in Boston. They were both great pups, and really helped me know I wanted to get Sadie once I got my own place. Max has been through a lot with Natasha (including her double lung transplant six years ago), and he was always right by her side. He has been a part of her life for 14 years, and even though he lived a long life in dog years, it still feels like he was taken from this world way too soon. My heart aches for Natasha, as I know what it feels like to love a furkid and have one love you back with every fiber of their being. We love you, Max. Rest in Peace.

 My favorite picture of Max and Natasha.
And one of Max and Pazzo enjoying the snow in Boston.


  1. I am soooo sorry to hear of you and your friend's loss of Max. I know how much it hurts as so many of my fur-friends have gone ahead of me. I will be praying for you all... even Pazzo as I know that they miss their companions, too. OC was very depressed for quite a while after her Mom, our sweet Mist, passed.

    You about scared me to death when I read the title of this post as I thought that you were talking about another special Max that so many blogging Doggies have been praying for now for several months...

  2. I am sooo sorry to hear about the loss. I know how much it hurts to lose a fur baby.

  3. Max looked so cute next to your friend; I'm sorry for his passing :(

    they become part of our family, so it is hard when they pass on


  4. That has to be so hard :( RIP Max.

  5. Thank you for all your kind words. I know this must be so hard on Natasha.

  6. Awww, this made me cry! I love that first picture. Thank you for writing this and everyone's nice comments :)

  7. This is the hardest part about being a dog owner. Their lives are too short. :( So sorry about Max :(
