There are moments in life, when at the time they seem so simple you’d never know it would change your life.

One of those moments happened about 15 years ago. My family found a breeder of yorkies, we went over to check out the new puppies. We all remember the breeder opening the garage door and about 12 dogs spilling out. Then seeing this one little puppy who was struggling to get over the doorstep. We took that little pup home, and our lives were changed forever.

Max was quite the dog. He was a little loud, a little feisty, but he loved his people more than anything. Max showed us what unconditional love looked like. No matter what was happening, his family came first. 15 years later, our little pup has passed away. Max will hold a huge spot in our hearts forever. Thank you for all the messages, texts and calls about Max. It means a lot to our family. Our hearts are broken to see him go.

Rest in Peace Max Februay 2000 – April 2015. We miss you already Max!

I’ll see you at the Rainbow Bridge Max.

    🙁 I'm sorry Rachel! Losing a pet is always so hard. They are such a loved part of the family. And boy was he cute! Love that photo of him with the little soccer ball!
