I just found your forum and started looking around, enjoying the comments from other Golden fans.

I lost Maximilian in September, 2008, at age 14. As is almost expected with Goldens, he had a magnetic personality, while being a fetch master and hydrophile. The fetch and his love of water combined into a unique art that Max mastered in his life - high dive retrieving.

So, I thought I'd share a few highlights of his 14 years with folks that understand how exceptional Golden Retrievers can be...




























Best regards,
Jose

Welcome!!

So sorry about the loss of Max...the pictures are stunning as was Max!!!

We lost one of our retrievers in March, 2009...he too was a big diver. Unfortunately, he didn't have quite the cliffs to dive from....

I am so sorry for the loss of your amazing Max. The shots of him diving are just amazing. He had no fear and looks like he is flying. I think he is now teaching all of our goldens how to cliff dive at the rainbow bridge. Such a handsome and regal looking boy he was especially when he got his sugar face. Thank you for sharing him with all of us. I hope you will stick around and share some stories and more pictures.

Jose, that boy of yours sure did have some fun, didn't he? I lost my boy at a bit over 14, and I know that they longer you have them, the more in love you fall. Max is likely showing all the other angels how to high dive at the Bridge. I'm sorry for your loss.

Now that is one fearless and amazing dog!
How did his diving begin Jose? I am beyond impressed.

I'm sorry you lost Max. When I saw the pictures of him diving and watching a human dive my first thought was that this was a dog that lived life...large! Hats off to you Max.

I'm sorry about your loss, but it looks like he found the perfect owner and had the ability to fly. He was beautiful.
