Sweet, sweet Max wagged his tail for the last time on Earth yesterday.

We wanted to tell him to Stay so badly.

I miss my dog.

I miss his brown eyes. And his black, soft fur. Especially the part by his ears. I miss his muzzle and his cute feet. And how all the fur there had turned gray with time. I miss the sound of his tail wagging whenever he saw me. I miss his fish breath. Which sounds crazy, but it's true. I miss the sound of him panting at night, keeping me awake. And the noise his crazy nails made as they clicked on the wood floors. I miss his fur getting on our clothes and our sheets and our…everything. I miss the way his kisses made me itch. And the way he would always come check in with me. I miss his ears and the way he sat up whenever I came in the house. I miss the way he would lay on the rug in the morning and just lightly wag his tail, not even lifting his head but saying good morning just the same. He wagged that tail so much that a lot of the fur wasn't even on it anymore. I miss the sense of his heart beating, keeping this house alive.

I miss my dog.

I think about how cool love is. It is such a massive giving from one thing to another. And the swirl of energy that gets all mixed up in the process. Max literally ripped our hearts out of our chests when he left yesterday. And we will never be the same. But we will also never be the same because of all the things he taught us. How to be a good friend. How to love unconditionally. How to forgive. How to welcome people into your home. How to protect the things you love. How to be patient and kind and loyal. How to run and play...even when it isn't the most convenient. How to just show up. How to sit by the ones you love and get them through some really hard times. And some really good ones. At one point in my life, maybe the darkest hour of it yet, that dog would just look at me, and sit by me and lick me and remind me to just breathe. Reassuring me that things would one day be okay again. The Dog of Tears. And I swear it's true that there were times when I was breathing just for him. Just to be with him. Just so I could pet him a little longer.

How to LOVE and BE GOOD.

I have no doubt that he is playing fetch right now. And chasing Bogey. Who is chasing squirrels. Those two dogs are some of the BEST things that this Earth has EVER had to offer. We feel so lucky that we were the ones that got to spend the most time with them.

Forever in our broken little hearts. I miss my dog.
