Maxie was an AKC salt & pepper Miniature Schnauzer. She had a really cute cropped tail and intact, floppy ears. I'm so glad the kennel never cut them. She could bark in such a high pitch that it was down right painful to the ear drums! When she got really excited her bark sounded like a 'squeak'. That always made me giggle. She could also jump flat footed over a 3 foot fence. She didn't look it but she was a tough little character.

Because she was exercised frequently, she was in marvelous shape and had been blessed with a healthy constitution except for a minor, recurring ear problem. She was prone to ear infections. And, boy howdy, that dog could run! Before the crushing illness laid her low, I clocked her in one of her sprints at about 25 mph.

Maxie was a good traveler. She was always friendly to strangers and children. She had the sweetest personality. Since we could hardly stand to be apart she was my almost constant companion. She filled many a lonely hour with love, happiness and total devotion. She was My Little Maxie Girl!

I had dubbed her affectionately with some nicknames: Stumpy (because of her tail), Squeaky, Angel Puppy (when she's good), Little Bad Dawg (when she's not), and Maxiedammit (she hid at this name)!! (lol) :o))

As of early 2013, Maxie was sleeping too much, drinking excessive amounts of water, then having trouble holding her urine, lost her voice, panting, pacing, her skin was loose. She was just all around not her normal self. The Vet diagnosed her with "Cushings Disease". Thankfully, she never completely lost her fur, it only thinned out considerably but she did become so sensitive to touch that holding her was impossible. Her last days where quite miserable for her. On the last day, I held her gently, letting her sniff my hands, while the drugs where administered by our kindly Vet. She went peacefully to the Rainbow Bridge at 7:08 pm this date. She now lays next to our other fur babies on our property under a majestic oak and ancient cedar tree.

My heart is forever broken and I will always miss my little furry buddy but I'm thankful I had her for as long as I did. In my heart Maxie is still a part of the family; she is just apart from the family.

A short video of Maxie at YouTube playing with her ball.

I thought of you today
but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too.
I think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake
from which I'll never part.
God has you in His arms,
and I have you in my heart.

The moment that you died my heart was torn in two.
One side filled with heartache the other died with you.
I often lie awake at night when the world is fast asleep,
and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my check.
Remembering you is easy, I do it every day.
But missing you is heartache that never goes away.
I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain.
Until that joyous day arrives that we will meet again.
--- I love and miss you so!

A great big *^*Thank You*^* to all who leave a virtual flower for Maxie. She was really special.
