Recently Maxamillion (Max) crossed the Rainbow Bridge. With the incredible medical support and help of NRGRR, Max had adopted his people less than two years previously, when he was nine years old. He was fresh from being surrendered by the only family he had ever known, and subsequently underwent cataract surgery and jaw surgery with the support of NRGRR. Max also developed laryngeal paralysis and arthritis.
Max rushed into nothing…unless you count finding his way into the hearts of those who knew him. His days had their own rhythm; he slept late, preferred to have freshly cooked chicken and rice with his morning and evening kibble, and padded silently around the house to curl up at his people's feet. He was insistent upon receiving his share of head rubs, using his snout to remove forcefully hands from typing, reading or playing the piano if any of those activities interrupted a rub. Max was most energized at the prospect of a car ride. Whenever he was let out, his first action was to run up to the car door. He preferred lying in the comfortable back seat to looking out the window.
Despite loving emergency care from Swift Creek Animal Hospital, Town and Country Animal Hospital, and the Animal Emergency Clinic of Cary, Max’s laryngeal paralysis eventually got the better of him.
