My husband and I lost our beloved pug, Maximus, on Monday, November 25th.  As you can imagine, this has been the most difficult 36 hours of our lives since our sweet boy was a daily part of our life for nearly 17 years.  We knew this was coming but had no idea how much it would hurt.  

I have been lost, broken, and unsure of how to cope with this loss--until I came to this site.  I continue to read the stories of loss, heartache and unsurpassed love of pets and am comforted at the responses.  I have never seen such a collection of support among human beings for their beloved pets and each other and feel an overwhelming sense of assurance and comfort.  

I am certain I will open up more about my loss, but I want everyone here to know how much your kind words to each other and sharing the stories of your amazing pets is helping me to cope with this devastating point in in my life.  

To my baby boy:  I love you, Max, and will miss you terribly.  I will think of you everyday and try very hard to replace the recent memory of your loss with the happiest memories of how you changed our lives forever.  Be well, my love...
