Just over 12 months ago (Sept 2010) we were lucky enough to adopt Max. If I remember rightly he came in with his brother Monty.
It is with the deepest sadness that I am writing to let you know he passed away 10 days ago very suddenly. He was great the evening before and enjoyed his walk as usual, but passed away that night with no prior signs of illness. He was such an amazing little man, who played for hours with our little boy. He will be so so sadly missed.
We have arranged for a private cremation and intend on scattering his ashes on one of his favourite walks, I hope this is OK with you. The vets suspect that it was a heart attack or stroke. I am truly heartbroken that we lost him so soon, I thought we would have had many more happy years together.
I suppose at times like this, we have to be grateful for small mercies, he went peacefully in his sleep and was at home with us. I fairly sure the last 12 months of his life were his happiest and he certainly brought a smile to our faces with his funny little ways.
I'm sure you can understand that now is not the right time for us to adopt another dog, but when the grief has settled, should we decide to adopt again, rest assured we be in touch.
