Remembering a special birthday

Today would have been Maxi’s 16th birthday, roughly 112 dog years. I miss her and think of her every day, sometimes I imagine her still standing at the front fence, barking at me as I pull into the driveway. Although some memories bring tears to my eyes it is easier to remember the happy times now and I want to share them you. Happy Birthday my sweet Maxi girl, may you be happy and pain free wherever you are ❀

Our beautiful Maxi girl
Maxi hated selfies
A golden sunrise and a splash in the surf
Maxi’s favourite spot for an early morning run

She loved a good roll
Maxi loved the beach and rolling in smelly things
Running free by the water
Maxi doing her happy dance at dinner time

    We should never under value the importance of memories. Wishing you many more happy ones! It is, after all, what she would have wanted. πŸ™‚

    Maxi was a beauty and I love the picture of her in the waves! She was obviously very loved. I have just started a poetry blog here on WordPress in case you have time to look? Have a good day, Sam πŸ™‚
