The time has come for me to say goodbye to my sweet pug Maximus. My heart is heavy and I am so upset about it. We’ve done everything to get him comfortable and adjusted to his blindness, deafness and diabetes, but there’s been a turn of events and we’ve run into some complications that are causing him a lot of pain. I have always told myself since he was a puppy, that I would do everything I could to keep him healthy and happy as long as his quality of life was still above average and he wasn’t in pain.
Unfortunately he has really deteriorated in the past month and it’s just time. I’m trying to make it to the weekend so we have some more quality time together when I’m not working so much and also get him more comfortable. I have a truly peaceful feeling about our life together. I have been acutely aware that this time was coming and I have been living life to the fullest with him. I just know that it’s never going to be enough time and he has truly been the best thing that has ever happened to me. He’s been the best part of my entire life, responsible for getting me through some very difficult times. My parents divorce, the death of Kidd, the worst heartbreak of my life and just those bad days. He’s also been responsible for some of the best times ever. No one has ever made me laugh harder than him and I am so happy we’ve had 11 years of great memories. It’s going to be a rough weekend. Ugh.
