Re: “Dog Days of Summer 2011

Wow. What a wonderful edition. In the essay "For my boy Toby" I fell to pieces. Although I now have a boy called Toby this rang true for my first dog that was my own dog, Max. Max picked me from the breeder and from that time on we were like a married couple for the next 13 years. We loved the beach, he loved muddy ponds, me not so much.

When it came time to help him with his cancer and pain I did just about everything in the story. Took him for his last walk. A walk that usually takes 15 minutes took 2 hours. We missed 2 appointments with the vet. My partner both times coming to check on me and Max. We always went to the pond at the top of the road.

When it came time to go I thought I had gotten strong and was able to do it. Boy was I wrong. We got to the vet and the vet shaved the leg. I just looked at my boy and said I can't do it. He looked up and licked me on the face as if to say "it's ok, I love you and you can go".

It took me 4 tries to get through the whole story and it's taken me a good while to write this. Maybe this is my ode to my Max.
