Ember be stylin'!! 8)

Does Ember tolerate the clothes? I bought a sweater and some booties for Cody several years ago but he didn't like it. He tried and tried to flick the boots off and shake the sweater off, so I gave up. He looked cute in his outfit, but apparently HE didn't think so! :laugh:

Yes, that's my Mäxi. The cat's name is Cäsar.
Max has become an old fella, he was ten years last fall. So far he's fit as a fiiddle, thank god. He has developped a cyst on his neck, which the vet deemed as harmless, as long as it doesn't get infected. Knock on wood, I hope he'll stay healthy for many years to come.

Oh I hope so too, Chrissi! He's a total cutie! He looks like such a sweet dog. :-*

He has lots of love at your house, I'm certain. I think he'll stick around for a long time to come. :) Please give him a hug for me. And Casar too!

So cute! 

And I'm glad that Cäsar is sticking close to home.  Maybe he got all his wanderlust out of his system.   ;)

Coats, yes.  Boots, no.  Silly hats, kinda -- only long enough to take a quick photo. or two.   :)

Max
2000 - 2011







Last Friday, I had to put my Mäxi down. In the early morning, the world was still intact. He was happy to go for a walk and gobbled down his food with enthusiasm. He was his usual, happy self. In the course of the morning, he deteriorated quickly though and by noon I called my husband to come home. We went to the vet immediately but by the time we arrived, Max was already a dying dog. He had hypothermia and was extremely anemic. I decided to let the vet do all emergency measures and then exams to see what's up. The ultrasound showed he had a huge tumor in his spleen and liver, which probably had broken open in the morning.
It came so quickly, we had no idea. The vet said he can see the dog was well until recently, he wasn't emaciated or anything. The kids didn't even have a chance to say good-bye, when they left for school in the morning, Mäxi was still all right. We all miss him so badly. :'( :'( :'(

Rest in peace, my friend.

I'm so sad for your loss. In the pic he looks like a wize guy, lovely fur. I'm not a dog person, more a cat lover but I know how much animals mean to us. They makes us happy and laughing, makes us relaxed and comforts us when we are sad.
