Thoughts and Poems for my Maxwell, my Best Friend
From time to time, people tell me, “lighten up, it’s just a dog,”
or “that’s a lot of money for just a dog.”
They don’t understand the distance travelled, the time spent,
or the costs involved for “just a dog.”
Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a dog.”
Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a dog,”
but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by
“just a dog,” and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch
of “just a dog” gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it’s “just a dog,” then you probably understand
phrases like “just a friend,” “just a sunrise,” or “just a promise.”
“Just a dog” brings into my life the very essence of friendship,
trust, and pure unbridled joy.

“Just a dog” brings out the compassion and patience
that make me a better person.

Because of “just a dog” I will rise early, take long walks and look
longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it’s not “just a dog”
but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
“Just a dog” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts
away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that its’ not “just a dog”
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being
“just a man” or “just a woman.”
So the next time you hear the phrase “just a dog,”
just smile, because they “just don’t understand.”

Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other
That we are still
Call me by my old familiar name
Speak to me in the easy way you always used
Put no difference into your tone
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we always enjoyed together
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was
Let it be spoken without effort
Without the ghost of a shadow in it
Life means all that it ever meant
It is the same as it ever was
There is absolute unbroken continuity
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval
Somewhere very near
Just around the corner
All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost
One brief moment and all will be as it was before
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again

I wish you were beside me right now, Maxwell. I love you, I miss you so much. It's so lonely without you. You were my Sunshine, my only Sunshine. I wish I could have done more to save you. I hope you know that, I need you to know that. Boobers, I love you so much

I wish I could have told you,
in words you'd understand,
I wanted you to stay with me.
This wasn't what I'd planned.

I wish somehow to tell you,
How empty I now feel.
A part of me went with you,
A part that time can't heal.

I wish I'd once more hear you,
as in the morning you would stir,
could hold you on my lap again
and stroke your lovely fur.

I wish that you could make me see
A way through all the pain,
and that I did not let you down
but set you free again.

I wish I had you back with me,
to fill this empty space.
But one day we'll be together
in a far, far better place

image I found this quote today my Maxwell and I think it fits you perfectly. I'll never forget when I saw your beautiful sweet face on Petfinder, I knew you were meant for me. Ultimately though, you chose me. It's one thing I'll never forget. I sat on the floor in the meeting room at the APL and they brought you in, then you walked over to me and sat in my lap. The vet asst there couldn't believe it. He said, and it's even in your chart, that you showed no interest in anyone, even when lured with food, you showed no interest. You chose me. You knew I needed you, and that you needed me. That we were perfect for each other. Like me, you'd rather be alone and wait for that perfect match, then settle for anything else. I love you so much my Maxwell, my Boobers. You are a Blessing to me and I thank God we found each other. You're the best thing that could have ever happened to me. I love you and miss you so much. Please stay close to me always, be with me always. Please guide me to you when I pass on so we can spend together forever in eternity. Please. I love you 

 Here is our quote....

"Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don't even know we have."

Hi my beautiful Maxwell. I missed the candlelighting ceremony tonight online but I held one myself for you right after. I hope you see all the candles burning brightly for you. i will always have them lit for you. More fundraising pages in your name in hopes to be able to honor you and make your memory known to as many as I can. You were so perfect, for me, you are so perfect. I dreamt of you so much last night, I'm sure you know though. I kept seing you lying in the grass at my Aunt Sharon's. I know you never were there and have never met her but I know it was there. Then we were driving in the car, me, you, and my mom. We were driving all over to vets searching for help. I kept thinking and saying in the dream, you weren't ready to leave me. You weren't ready to leave our life. every time I woke up and fell back asleep the dream picked up where it left off. This usually never happens to me. I held you, I hugged you. I just want to do more of that. I just want you here. I want to sing in your ear and see you sitting or laying next to me when I wake up. I could have sworn I heard you drinking water today. I asked my mom, and she said maybe I did, you are still here with us, just in another way. I hope so, so much. I keep changing your water still. I don't know, it just makes me feel you're here. I laid a milk bone on your bed for the same reason. I know you weren't a big fan though, unless there was no other treats. I love you so much Maxwell.  You were and are the best friend I could ever have. My love my soulmate in doggie form. My Boobers please stay close to me always, please walk beside me always. Please guide me to you when I pass on, so we can spend together forever in eternity. I love you so much please come to me in my dreams again tonight. I need to see you there and hold you. I love you

image I miss you Maxwell, I just want you here with me. I hope to God I didn't let you down, I owe you so much. You saved me. You made me feel so loved, so comforted, like I never had before. I would do anything in the world for you. Anything. I wish I could have taken away all your fear that day, all your pain  I wish to God I could have. I kept thinking today that I would get home from work and everything would be ok. I'd take you on our nightly walk and then we would come home and you'd chew your busy bone and I'd sit next to you with a glass of wine and I'd just pet you and hug you and be near you. I had to stop myself so many times today. I just want our life back. We had so much more to do together, so much more love to give each other. I know our love and our bond is everlasting and we will be together again one day, crossing the Rainbow Bridge together, and I wait for that day. I will always love you and adore you, that will do nothing but grow. I will continue to miss you with all of me until we are together again, in eternity. Please guide me to you when I pass Maxwell, so we can spend forever together in eternity. I love you my Boobers

Hi My Maxwell I love you, I miss you. I called Great Lakes again tonight, I spoke with a very nice vet who again told me "I did the right thing". I know nothing short of you letting me know will just not be enough  I hope you know that if I had been given even the smallest bit of hope I would have taken it and run. I would have fought and done whatever I needed to build on that hope. I wanted to take you home with me and lay with you. I wanted to comfort you and hold you. the vet told me agaim tonight, that would not have been possible. I hate hemangiosarcoma, I hate that you had so much life left in you, so much love and all of that was taken from you in one day. I know you wanted it all to go away, I could tell by how you acted that day.  I wanted it all to go away too. you went downhill so fast. I didn't want you to be scared and I hate that you were. I would have done anything to take that fear and pain away. Each day passes and seems to run right into the other. It's just one big nightmare. Nothing seems real since you left. I hope and pray you are watching over me, that you're feeling wonderful and healthy and waiting for me to join you, so we can cross Rainbow Bridge together. I hope you are with Xavier right now and you two are sleeping on a big warm cushy couch waiting for me and my mom. we love you both so much and we miss you both so Much. You brought us all the love and happiness we needed. Blessings you both are. Please please guide us to you both when we pass. I will be contacting a pet communicator soon, I am desperate to hear from you. i love you so much my Boobers, my peach with the big cheeks. So much I love you and miss you

Hi my Maxwell, my angel  I called Dr John today again. He wasn't there but I left a message for him to call me back when he is in. I guess I just want to know what I probably already asked. Is there ANYTHING else I could have done?? I know he already said no but I can't seem to let it go. You were so happy and energetic on Friday night. I can't wrap my head around the fact that you declined so quickly to the point of me losing you. One day??? Just one day later you were gone? I am having such a hard time accepting that. I miss you so much my Maxwell. Carlin and Bailey gave me such a beautiful gift to commemorate you and honor you. the frame is beautiful and it has your picture at the water and your name engraved in it. I just want you. I want you here. Im trying to find all these things I can do to help fight canine cancer in your name   I want eveyone to know what an amazing, loving, strong, sweet, dog and best friend you were. I know all that matters is that you and I had a wonderful life together, and we loved and protected each other. Our bond is unbreakable Maxwell it will go on for eternity. I know I will be with you again. I just miss you now so much. Please guide me to you when I pass so we can spend forever together in eternity. I love you my Boobers
