My Maxx

I don't check my mail very often, because I don't have many bills, and I mostly receive my mail at my office.

When I checked today I found a lovely condolence card from my vet clinic. This was the verse:
If we measure lives not in time but in grace,
in the joy with which they lived, and in the love
they leave behind, the we have much
to learn from our pets.

God bless you, my dear.

What GWPDA said.

I don't feel clever enough to come up with anything more appropriate.

That was lovely of the vet to do, 4legs. When my dear Orion passed on, the vet sent a small donation to the local veterinary college in his memory, and the university sent me a card. (I cried and cried.)

He was your lovely boy, and he touched so many hearts. Thank you for sharing him with us.

It's nice to know our Maxx was being cared for by a very special vet.

Yeah, it made me all teary and I went to look at his photo album. My, he was a lovely fella! And so patient, with the flashy-thingy and peeps on his head. Mine would've et me alive.

Everyone at the clinic loved him. It was impossible not to.

Heck and they (the vet crew) got to meet him, then there's so many of us who just knew him via the Innertubes, er, Intertubes, um, I mean, Internet (yeah, that's the ticket) - and loved him, too!
Maxx is capable of instilling world peace, whether here or on his comet if enough folks see his pic and hear his story!
Hugs 4LG - and, just think, your new companion/benevolent plushy overlady is to arrive soon! :)

We got a Rainbow Bridge card from the emergency vet after the last little fella left us suddenly. It was a nice gesture.

And Maxx was a very special boy.
