We had to say goodbye to our sweet boy Max yesterday after 15 amazing years. He was there when I graduated high school, college, first job and got married. He was more than a friend to us. To say will miss him would be an understatement. Will try to post more photos as I come across them (15 years is a lot of pictures). Thanks yall  :bawling:

    Sorry for your loss.  Losing a family member is never easy :(
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Pat and I fully understand your grief. Unlike you we have lost 4 of our Westies at the age of 12. Unfortunately while we thought we had 2 more years we lost our last little guy at age 10. 

    As as life goes on we now have Westie #5 who just turned 1 year old in April.

    It is tough, for sure, and 15 years is a fantastic ride.  Enjoy the memories, they will give you joy as time passes.
