Goodbye Max and Good Thoughts to Mr. Darcy

My sweet pal, Max, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this weekend. We are kind of sad here right now. I'm sure his family would appreciate your good thoughts. Run free, my big friend.

Please also send your healing vibes to Mr. Darcy who is having major surgery.

Oh Mango, we are sorry for your loss! Condolences to Max's family.
At first I thought you were talking about ME, but thank goodness all is well here.
Lots of love and licks to you all

Martha said...

At first we also thought you were talking about Max - as in above. We are really sorry to hear about the loss of Max - we are sorry we didn't know this Max, what a wonderful looking dog - we will visit - also healing vibes to Mr Darcy.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh dear. Another crossing. It seems every morning we learn of another dear furry or fuzzy creature that has left for the Rainbow Bridge. It makes us sad. They give so much love and each and every one is an important part of our lives. Our sincere condolences and sympathy to Max's family and friends. As well, we send healing thoughts and tons of support to Mr. Darcy's family... it is all so hard.

We never get to keep our giant friends long enough. Thor is 8.5 years old, and his humans worry about him a lot. Our sympathy is with the families of Max and Mr. Darcy.

We didn't know Max until this morning when we went to say good bye, how sad. And now we have to go see Mr. Darcy, we didn't know about that either. Hope he is OK.

Thanks for telling us.

Woos, the OP Pack

Mack said...

Oh goodness. We are so sorry to hear about Max's passing

Mr Darcy said...

Thanks Mango!
It is really heartening to know that there are so many positive thoughts for Mr Darcy around the world at the moment! I'm sure it will help the operation go well.
I'm so devastated about Max; he was such a beautiful dog.

love and hugs,
Darcy's Mumma

Oh Mango - we are so sad about Max too! Hsin-Yi was so upset when she saw their post yesterday - she was crying while reading it - then she forwarded it onto Paul at work and he had to stop reading it halfway because all his colleagues were wondering why he was sobbing incontrollably! (Paul is very soft-hearted)

I saw what you said on Max (in SA)'s blog about your Momma being worried coz you're a big dog too - yeah, my humans are like that too - especially as I'm the same type of doggie as Max - and I'm even the same age!!

But anyway, as you say, we feel fine at the moment so long may it continue! :-)

Moose said...

WE were so sad about Max and had a good cry for him this morning. Poor Mr Darcy too. Not a good day for Danes I guess.
We would be delighted to paw it forward with you. If you (the mango) have played perhaps the squirt would like to play instead? Of course I am sure you will share with him so guess it does not matter ;-)
