Thank you. All of your empathy and experience is the reason
I'm posting here. I know most of the people on the list understand.
I do plan to hold him as he goes. I'm holding him as
often as he'll let me today. I just can't imagine his last moments being without
someone who loves him.

There is simply no way to tell you, many of us
know the pain of letting them go. There are so many loving hearts waiting to
greet your Max. And when you cross over, he will run to you and jump into your
arms. They wait for us too. And, you are right, he will be able to see and
hear and walk and run. He will no longer have to suffer being incontinent and
his shiny fur will be clean again and he will give you kisses. The worst is to
have to be the person who makes this decision. The best you can do for him is
to hold him and talk quietly to him as he passes over. It is the most loving
act we have to give them at the end.
Prayers are going ahead of him for Max and for your family. He will feel
the love when he arrives. Deb
