A Tribute to Miniature Schnauzer Max

by Peggy
(Clovis, CA)

Max came to me when I least expected or wanted a new pet. My husband was abusive and had given me Max as a way to make up for something very wrong he had done. I did not want to let him in my heart, but he wiggled his way in anyway. He was the last one to say goodbye to me every morning and the first one to greet me at night. He was my friend in the darkest, hardest days of my life, and I had to let him go too early because of health problems that could not be overcome for him.

Still today, I think of his soft, silvery fur, and his bearded face that laughed at me...his soulful eyes that told me he was there for me.

He was a great dog and I still love him all these years later.

My Mattie was originally my former husband's dog. When we split in 2006,(Mattie was 3) I was amazed to find that he did not want her. At the same time, I was so very glad that we did not fight over her. I believe she came into my life to help me deal with my divorce so I would not be alone. She loved me unconditionally and I loved her unconditionally. She always cuddled with me when I was sad and made me feel loved. When she went to doggie heaven, it was curled up in the crook of my arm, my tears streaming down onto her black nose...like so many times over the years.

Sorry for your loss. I understand your pain.

I wanted to say how sorry I was to read about the loss of your dear companion Max. It sounds like you have had a hard life and that he was your constant light.

I also read that you have a new mini in your life and she too brings you joy. I'm happy to hear that, although I know the pain of losing Max will never really go away.

Hope you make wonderful new memories with Dotti and know that Max will be waiting for you on the other side.

Sassy Pack, that was nice of you to post! Actually, I did get another Miniature Schnauzer, she will be 3 yrs old on the 19th. Her name is Dotti and she is black and silver and lovey all over!! She is taking a nap right next to me as I type this.

Poor Max

We are so sorry for your loss. We hope some day you can find another Schnauzer to fill your heart with joy. He won't take the place of Max, but it sure will help heal your heart much faster, and who knows, you may love him as much as you did Max.
