It’s A Dog’s Life – In My Home Anyway

Standard

For the first time since he came to live with me, just over ten years, Max has fallen asleep on my lap.

It’s just shy of eleven months since we lost both Horatio then Jack. We have both struggled quite badly to live with the loss – for lots of different reasons.

I still miss my boys so much and still instantly tear-up when I think of them. Having them in my life altered the course of my entire being. They enriched my existence by an immeasurable amount.

Max and I still have a ways to go, in trying to have a happy life with just the two of us. But we keep trying.

On the whole, I have found that having my three Boys was healthier than any other relationship (bar one) that I ever had with a human. Humans are not reliable. Dogs are predictable. They are also loyal and loving and gentle.

I have thought about adopting another dog, particularly for Max’s sake – but I’m just too allergic. I’m actually allergic to Max, but we soldier on in a fashion as the allergy isn’t nearly as strong as with most other breeds.

It helps that I love him so much, too.

He woke himself up by snorting!

    • Oh my Max is a Maxwell as well.
      And your Max has just as loving a face as my Max.
      ❤ straight back to you both.
