This last week he had not seemed well - and was walking more slowly than usual on our morning walks. We had an appointment this morning with our vet and fully expected to be leaving with some medicine to help Max feel better. Unfortunately the vet found a mass in the lower part of Max's stomach. An X ray also showed a large cancerous growth further up in Max's lungs. He had been having a little trouble breathing a few times but it quickly passed. He was a strong dog and gave little sign of what must have been going on inside.
We said goodbye to Max at the vet clinic, in the same room we had seen our beloved Spike pass on over a year ago. It doesn't get any easier losing another member of our furry family - but we will always treasure the memories and the unique characteristics each one brought along with them.
