*hugs* You're in my thoughts. I'm so sorry that this happened...

You are in my thoughts and prayers Jess.

Thanks guys :)

& its funny how he went to black to grey in only 10 yrs hehehe.

I use to pull all his white hairs once a week & then they were on his face, chest, leggs tummy & I couldn't keep up, nor did I want to make him bald.

I even bought him shampoo for black dogs & there was a warning on it not to use on light coloured dogs, only black/dark brown.. but NOOOOOO it made the white hairs stand out even more.

Oh, he's so handsome. I'm so sorry that he passed:( If it's ok, I don't want to make you feel even worse, but could I ask how it happened?

Thanks for sharing the pics about Max. Isn't it funny how much they change, yet stay the same as they age?

ramanth tell me about it.
Last summer/spring the vet said Max's muscle tone & his health condition should give him another 5 years min. He said Max's health was the same as a 3-5 year old dog. & if u saw the video with Max fetching the chuck-it, u can see the speed & power he had for an old dog. His temp owners said they have never seen a dog run that fast before & they've had large dogs all their life.

I must have been doing something right. (the vet wanted to know my secret).

Max even kept his puppy face, which was nice :)

Remember...we are all here for you. :) :)

Sweet baby Max
Your face is forever writ onto our hearts
Those eyes, so sweet and dark
Never changed
The love in them stayed steady
And though we lost you far too soon
The love remains for always

Sweet old man Max
The wisdom of 10 dog years
Is plainly enscribed upon your dearly greying face
The innocence of puppyhood gone
But the silliness still ingrained

Sweet Max
Jessica's dog of a lifetime
Forever romp in her heart
And in our imaginations

And as long as there is one dog hair embedded
Somewhere in her belongings
You'll be with Jess
And that, as any Lab-owner knows,
Means forever and a day.

He was so cute as a puppy. What mix is he? I see Lab and something else.........can't pinpoint it. :) I like his grey hairs, they make him look cuter. :D

Max was Lab, Rotti & Pitt Bull. His litter mate brother Max is Lab (same mommy), cocker & BC (diff fathers, cool eh??). But he was put down years ago. The second day they had him he was hit by a car & crushed both front legs. Hes had major probs since & at age 4 the brothers met for the first time since the petstore (good petstore), & he could hardly jog & he walked like a 15 year old dog. His meds wern't working & I think they ended his horrible suffering at age 5-6. Cause I didn't see him around & I didn't have the heart to ask where he was. Poor puppy. & My Max was 3 times larger then his bro heheh, Max was about 20-30 pounds & my Max was 80 pounds. They didn't even look alike, but they had the same attitudes & were both very very smart.
