Mark Sternberg Jerry,
There is nothing worse than loosing a friend like this. I feel for you and your loss. There is nothing like a dog as a companion.

There is a well known eulogy about a Dog named "Old Drum". His owner was George Graham. Back in 1870 there was a trial about the shooting of “Old Drum” by a neighbor. This eulogy was read at the trail and George won his case against the neighbor.

Gentlemen of the jury, a man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he can be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies. And when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.

Max quit eating almost three weeks ago. The vet said that even if they knew the reason at his age and with his condition there was little they could do. So we said goodbye and laid him to rest. I will miss you Max, ------I will miss you. Goodbye "little bitty tiny guy", my little "puppy boy"


We all feel your pain....
