One day we'll get to this again!
I know most of you have already heard/read the news that MaxDog has khrossed but this is our tribute to him!
We'll nevFUR furget all the fun times we had when he did his MaxDog World Tour and stopped to visit us
Mom tells me the day of Max's khrossing happened to have been the 69th birthday of Bob Dylan - and bekhause of that, a few of his lyrikhs went through her head -
with this being the furst one fur it touched on many issues relating to both of our khountries and our world

And she also thought of this one FOREVER YOUNG which is what MaxDog will furever be!

If woo haven't yet seen the furry special post MaxMom khrafted fur him, please be sure to head ovFUR and paw some words of support and thanks fur letting MaxDog go and fur sharing MaxDog with The World

He taught all of us so furry much

Mom just turned on the puter about an hour ago and read the news. Also on Caryl's other sight. She just nsat and cried awhile. For Max, for her kids she has had to help too.
She finally managed to put up a post for Max with a poem for Max and Maxmom-Caryl.
Mom is sorry she was mia during the tour of Max.
The poem I put up is one of my favorites when one has to do what hurts so very bad.
Sad licks today.
Sunny, Scooter & Jamie
ps Mom loves Bob Dylan, and thought they were very good song choices. But she startsleaking(more like a burst pipe) if she listens very much.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Rats! I was hoping for a miracle! Well, Max truly was a miracle; I just wanted a bigger miracle

Unknown said...

That was beautifully written Khyra. it breaks our hearts to see such a beautiful, adorable Dawg go, but he is no longer in pain and is free. though this thought does little to stop the tears....
we too agree with Jake and Just Harry...Bob Dylan is a really good choice.
with love,
Gin n Bud

We are also so sad about Max being gone. But we are glad that he is now "Forever Young" and no longer in pain. We are also glad we met him, and shared those days of grace with him and his family. And, above all, we are glad of his amazing legacy that has brought all of us so much closer.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Maxdog will be missed and was loved by all. Bob Dylan was a perfect choice for the music. Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Dexter said...

Momma could not even watch that movie because she KNEW it would make her eyes leak for sure. It is sad to see Max go, but I think he really enjoyed his days of grace.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Khyra and mom
what a beautiful tribute for Max.
You always have a way to put things into our eyes so we can see them correctly. But sometimes we have so many tears we cannot see.
Your words- the songs tributes- thank you for helping us put our thoughts into words- thank you for leading us to the stars so we can speak to Max.

Our tears are falling.
I hear you.
I hear you whispering,
but I don't know what your saying.
Are you telling us to be brave
and to celebrate life?
How can we do this-
when you are gone?
I try to remember
the words
you taught to all of us.
We all hoped for a miracle-
what are you saying Max?
Help me remember
how you wanted us to carry on
and love one another
and not hate
Help me to remember
to be kind and patinet
and not selfish.
Help us find a silver lining.

Teddy Bear said...

GMTA indeed. look at the cowriter's of Rod Stewart's Forever young. (Being a huge fan of both, I happen to have a Book "Bob Dylan Lyrics 1962-2001. To me he is an amazing talent)
And I also love Rod Stewart's voice too.
