We said goodnight to a hero yesterday, strong magnificent Max who lived for nearly fourteen months past his bone cancer diagnosis. His stunning blue eyes, his enthusiasm and his stoic pawsonality put smiles on the faces of everyone he met. Max will never, ever be forgotten.
In the spirit of our courageous hero, we want to share these fun clips of him with you.
This movie was taken at our Tripawds get together in Santa Barbara last December. You can see here that not even lung mets could stop this boy from having a good time with the other pups.https://youtube.com/watch?v=KnsEG3uazwE%3Ffeature%3Doembed%22+frameborder%3D%220%22+allow%3D%22accelerometer%3B+autoplay%3B+encrypted-media%3B+gyroscope%3B+picture-in-picture%22+allowfullscreen%3E%3C
Here’s a flashback video starring Max, taken when we met him in February 2008, not long after his amputation and diagnosis.https://youtube.com/watch?v=M07lmRZ6his%3Ffeature%3Doembed%22+frameborder%3D%220%22+allow%3D%22accelerometer%3B+autoplay%3B+encrypted-media%3B+gyroscope%3B+picture-in-picture%22+allowfullscreen%3E%3C
And here’s a few photos of Max will always put smiles on our faces.
Run free Max, go get ’em!

And here's a few photos of Max will always put smiles on our faces.
You are right about that one Jerry. Max had a real zeal for life and both the Santa Barbara and Mill Valley demonstrated that. We will always celebrate the life of such great heroes even now as sorrow overwhelms us. We were truly lucky to have met you Max and all your family.
