It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. Max passed away yesterday at age 9 years, 7 months. He was a victim of cancer. We joined the GRF a little less than 8 years ago, when Max was just under 2 years old. He was a big boy, at about 135 pounds. Max was truly a force of nature. He became a certified therapy dog--he visited many schools, nursing homes and hospitals. He also met many people in our community, as he accompanied me on my travels around town. He also traveled with us in our RV, where he met many other travelers. As a member of GRF, and as a moderator, I helped organize several meet-ups where Max met some of the members of this forum, although I do not know how many of those people and dogs are still here. I include with this post several pictures of Max. My wife and I already miss our beautiful boy more than words can describe.

Dave I am so very very sorry to hear this.
Max was such a special boy, I always enjoyed seeing pictures of him and hearing about his Therapy visits.

Thinking of you and your family, I know this is a very difficult time for you all.

Runfree Max.

I'm so sorry, Dave. I know you loved Max so very much. I'll always remember him from this meetup in Coto de Caza.

You gave him a big little life, which is all we can do for them. Thanks to you, Max lived bigger even than he was, and he touched many lives. I'm so sorry for your loss.
