Max.

You... were the cutest, runtiest puppy with hilarious bulging eyeballs.
You... almost ended up with the name Hercules, but lucky for you, I was shut down.
You... lived with us through four temporary homes, until we moved into our home.
You... suddenly sprouted all your beautiful fur, and had the most gorgeous beard & tail.
You... put up with Rusty better than all of us do, and were always so patient with him.
You... liked nothing better than curling up on the washing, but only the clean stuff.
You... gave awesome kisses, despite your breath.
You... used to love your Liony, and would spend hours kneading him with your paws.
You... were possibly the most spoiled dog in all of Australia.
You... waited for me to come home and spend some time with you before you left us - and for that I'm grateful. Miss you already, kiddo.

Sorry about your loss - Max had 12 solid years of life and in dog terms, that's awesome. And I'm sure he's lived a really great life.

Awww, what a cutie-pye. I'm sorry you had to lose him. Isn't it hard to love our "babies" when we know their life is so short? At least he had 12 nice long years with a loving family. But, it's never long enough, is it? *Hugs!*
