We said goodbye to Mr. Max a few months ago. I haven’t been around here much, so didn’t make a post about it. He was the sweetest little dog I’ve ever had, and his little bed is still in the floor next to my desk. Max was just a few weeks shy of his 17th birthday, and although his decline was steady, he was still…
I am flummoxed at what a pretty boy Mr. Toomey was. I'm sorry you both had to go through everything you went through there at the end, but I'm glad he had such a loving home in his final year.
I’m so sorry, Gina. You’re right, it never gets any easier. We lost our little Max recently, and even though I knew it was coming, it didn’t hurt any less.

Throwing a ton of money at an illness or an injury in a senior pet to extend their life at the detriment of their happiness is not a kindness. I DO however agree with Fluter’s comment above—if you explain your top… Read more
Elote and bbq chicken, and now I’m eating a snickers ice cream cone.
I mean, that’s just being thoughtful!
lol, this is why you’re my favorite
BUY IT. DO IT NOW.
I’ll second the rec for DE. Sadly, our ant problem was beyond fixing this year, but I’ve had luck with DE in summers past. Sprinkle on windowsills and doorways.
Mr Max is officially in his twilight stage. Here he is before and after last week’s haircut, doing what he does all day: sleep in his nest of blankies. His coordination is starting to slip, he’s developed a cataract, and some days he doesn’t have the energy to get out of bed much at all...but he still makes it to the…
