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.”

I miss you Maxwell, im empty without you. You were my boobers, my constant friend and companion. Im lost without you. I love you so much my peach 


My loss of my best friend

When you look at me,you'll see sorrow
it's been this way for awhile,
you'll never see any happiness
and you'll never see me smile.

Because just a short time ago
a loves life came to end,
and i have'nt been able to cope
with the loss of my best friend.

We used to spend all our time together
you were never left alone,
and i will always remember how
you would wrestle for your bone.

And how you were so excited
when we went for walks everyday,
you made me so happy
and that was taken away.

To our bond,our friendship
nothing could compare,
to the way i feel now
knowing you're no longer here.

Hi my angel Maxwell I love you and I miss you. I hope you can hear me when I speak to you. I hope and have faith that you do. I still think somehow you'll come back to me. I hate referring to you in the past tense. I hate that I'm writing on here to you. I just mean I wish you were here with me and I could say how much I love you right to you while hugging and squeezing you I'm hoping, praying and keeping faith that I will get the chance to do that again with you and that time it will be for all eternity. Please remember to guide me to you when my time comes so our eternity will be together. I love you so much and I miss you. I can't believe youre gone

image I Stood Beside your Bed Last Night

I stood beside your bed last night, I came to have a peep. 
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep. 
I whined to you so softly as you brushed away a tear, 
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here." 

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, 
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me. 

I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore. 
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more. 

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care. 
I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there. 

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. 
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me." 

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. 
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there. 

It's possible for me to be so near you everyday 

To say to you with certainty, "I never went away." 

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ... 
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you. 

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning 
And say "goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning." 

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, 
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side. 

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. 
Be patient, live your journey out ... then come home to be with me.

Hi my Maxwell, I love you so much, I miss you so much. I keep looking all over this house in your usual spots, hoping to catch a glimpse of you. I want so much to look over and see you sleeping next to me on the couch. I want to prop you back up when you start slipping over the edge while you dream. I spoke to another vet clinic today about you and what happened. I guess somehow I think if I get another opinion, another answer, somehow you'll come back to me. I know in my head that this cannot happen but I wish so much for it in my heart. Like somehow that will be the magic that wakes me up from this nightmare. It still feels like a nightmare. It's still so unreal. I write and write and build your memorial hoping again that somehow that will be what it takes to have you back. Again I know, it cannot happen, but I still need to wish. I know I've asked you this already but please forgive me for not spending more time with you that horrible day. I wanted to, please know that. But I had to make sure we could get you help. I wanted more than anything to lay there with you and hold you but I could never have forgiven myself if I didn't try to do everything I could. I wanted that car ride together to last forever I wanted to freeze that time forever. At the same time, I wanted to get you to the surgeon so fast. You made me so happy Maxwell. I always knew you were so perfect for me, I always knew I needed you more than anything. I never thought I'd lose you like this. I miss you with all my heart. I love you with all of me. I hope you are with me, staying close as you always did. I need you now more than ever. Such a cruel thing isn't it? I believe you are here, I'll always believe that until I'm there with you at the Bridge and we cross it together, and we spend eternity together. I love you my Peach, my Maxwell with the big cheeks I love you

I explained it to St. Peter,
I'd rather stay here
Outside the pearly gate.
I won't be a nuisance,
I won't even bark, I'll be very patient and wait,
I'll be here, chewing on a celestial bone,
No matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone,
It wouldn't be heaven for me.

Maxwell I can't believe you're gone. Each day since I lost you feels like it didn't happen. Time stopped it seems, when I lost you. I walk through this house not knowing what to do with myself. It was always you and me. I went to Giant Eagletonight, the lady asked where the dog food was. Every night I worked they knew I'd be stopping in to get your treats and my treats. We both were so easy to please, you just wanted love and some busy bones, I just wanted love and a glass of wine. We were a perfect fit, you and I. After our nightly walk We'd sit on the floor together, me with a glass and you with your bone, and I'd pet you or comb you, and there we'd be til bedtime. We just wanted love and warmth. We found it in each other, from the beginning. I keep trying to remind myself that you are here in spirit as I hold your ashes in my lap. I can't believe I will never see that beautiful face, that sweet, loving face again. I know I won't here on earth, but like right now I have to keep reminding myself, it's just for now, I'll see your face and hold you when I pass on and we are together crossing the bridge to eternity, never to part again. I love you so much Maxwell, I just can't believe I lost you. It was so unexpected, so quick. a nightmare. I still think ill wake up and somehow this has just been an extremely long nightmare. I keep hoping.  I'll keep hoping until we are together again. God, I love you Boobers

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

Hi my dear, sweet Maxwell, my Boobers. I miss you so much, I love you so much. Nothing seems the same without you. It's so empty and lonely here without you. I wish so badly you were here with me right now. If it were are usual night tonight, I'd be getting home from work soon and we would go for our nightly walk and then I'd cozy up on the floor next to you while you had your nightly busy bones and I would pet your back. We'd watch tv and then we'd do our nightly dance of moving from the couch to the floor, wherever you were comfortable. Then when it was time to go to bed, we'd get all snuggled up and I'd fall asleep next to you. I miss you, I miss your face, your way of looking at me with such love, I miss the sound of you coming to find me wherever I was. A part of me has left with you, my heart is with you. I hope so much to see you again when it is my time. I want so much to feel your presence until that time. I love you my Maxwell, my Boobers
