    Well last night we got a phone call from a women who saw one of our fliers. She told me she was sorry but she thought our dog had been hit by a car. My heart dropped as soon as it filled..... I asked if he was ok and she told me no the impact had killed him. I told her i would be right there and she said she would try to moce him off the road. When i got there and she showed us the tore up body I knew it was him his collar and tags still on though bent. I broke down right there and i still crying now i mean uncontrolable crying.This is all my fault maybe if i hadent domesticated him so much she would'nt have stayed so close to homes and wondered out into the street! He was never hit in his feral years why now? In his old days the old guy still hadent had his first bath....... We brought him back to the house and buried him our in a clearing in the woods (did'nt seem right to bury him anywhere else). Im just so sorry I should'nt have interfeared with his life he would have been better off.

    Jamie especially is heartbroken over this. I have had the idea of possibly finding someone in the area with a dog Maxis possibly got pregnant and I would like to find a puppy of his and get it for Jamie. We both need it but im sure it won't be easy.

    I just miss him so much and just feel terrible about it all.

    RIP Maxis
    you were special!

    I'm not good with trying to cheer people up, or very good with comforting thoughts...but I'm sorry to hear about Maxis. Hope you all feel better soon.

    OH Pits..please don't be so upset. My heart breaks for you. Just think that you did give him love, and you know he was so happy to know you. accidents just happen, it was nothing you could have avoided..and you certainly didn't add to the cause. you were kind to him, and he appreciated you for it. I'm sending huge (((((HUGS))))). I know you are so sad, but don't blame yourself. Pits...you ARE the best.

    Don't be sad. It wasn't at all your fault! And Maxis is in a nice place now, where nothing bad can happen. He's watching over you and thanking you for all you've done for him. Hope you find that special puppy.

    Pits..i am god awful sorry to hear this..i think tho that you gave him a life, albeit a shorter one, full of love and compassion..you showed him trust and gave him a full belly..and a warm bed. You were the best possible person for him in the whole wide world..i think you know that as well. It was much better to be hit by a car, then to have died by a bullet in the wilds,or an infection that would have had him starve before he died full of fleas and ticks, with no one to shed a tear. I would rather die an early death healthy and loved, then a long one of loneliness full of the desperate need to find food..he could have been poisoned as well. That was the fate he was destined for and i know are aware of this as well.. Hugs gurl i wish i was there tho i don't know what i could do. I am glad you brought him home and buried him as well. You gave him the greatest gift of all, you gave him your love..that was more then anyone else was willing to do for him. You turned the community around and hopefully the next time a dog is scared and desperate, someone might learn from your example, and his as well...to not shun but encourage the act of kindness. Rest in peace dear maxis.

    Oh Pits I am so sorry. I broke down crying when I read what happened. I agree with Smkie, please don't ever regret giving Maxis a loving home. Always keep his memory alive; he will live forever in your heart. I know Maxis is in a good place with all our pets.

    Aw, I'm so sorry to hear such a terrible thing happened. It's not your fault, you have no reason to go blaming yourself. All you did was give him shelter, food, and love--and by God, nothin's wrong with that.

    RIP Maxis...

    I'm very sorry to hear that but you have to cheer up. It comes time for everyone to go, I don't think it's up to us to judge whether someone lived a short or a long life. Don't let the bad memories kill you, let the good memories put a smile on your face.

    R.I.P.

    Awwww, Scarlette. :( You did everything right by that dog. Don't blame yourself. He was happy with you and he had a home. Wouldn't you rather have a short happy life than a long lonely one?

    I'm really sorry that happened. HUGS!!!!!

    I'm so sorry :( But I agree with everyone, it wasn't your fault, and at least he had some time of happiness and love thanks to you.

    I'm sorry to hear what happened. Theres probably not much more I can say that everyone else hasnt. You gave him a great life, and showed him what it means to be happy. Maxis is at rainbow bridge now, running around carefree and playing. Keep him in your heart and remember the good times. That is how he would want to be remembered.

    I think everybody has put it better than I ever could. You gave him warmth, a full belly, trust, and love.

    RIP Maxis.

    That is really sad.. I'm really sorry to hear of your loss, it's never easy losing a loved pet.. :( However, I don't think anyone could say it was your fault. Sometimes accidents just happen, whether we want them to or not, but you can't blame yourself for this. I'm sure you provided a loving home for Maxis, and he would really appreciate you for that.

    RIP Maxis.
