I had no idea that the video I recorded & posted Friday morning of my old man puppy Maximus breathing would be the last....
My fur baby since February 2010..... Maximus went into mild convulsions at 8:34am during which he stopped breathing. At 8:40am, his strong puppy heart gradually slowed down and stopped beating.
I am so grateful for this companion of mine. Terverun Belgian Sheephounds have an expected lifetime of 14 years or less. Maximus Maximillian Puffington Esquire made it to 14 years and 5 months. While I hoped to have his companionship for another 14 years, he was letting me know the past couple months that his time was coming. Maximus was a beautiful model of a healthy puppy with a very strong will to live right up to his final breaths.
I am even more grateful for my puppy girl Jophiel who instinctively knew to let mommie and Maximus hog the bed to themselves the last two nights and who now is a source of great love and compassion as we both grieve.....
Here's to being blessed with a best friend who has shared an infinite number of kisses, licks, adventures, and now memories💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😘🐶🙏🏾
Rest in Peace Pascha Maximus Maximillian Puffington Esquire at your Sniffness
