I dont know were to begin except to say that tonight we are in deep shock.
We took our big Dog Max to the vets for his second booster today and he collapsed in the waiting room and has gone.
We are devatsated

Oh my….. I don't know what to say... How heartbreaking..

Oh Shelley, how awful. Nothing can be said to make things better. Had he been unwell recently?

Thinking of you.


Thank you for your kind words. He was 13 and a big Dog, he seemed fit and well so it was an absolute shock. We dont know what to do with ourselves. We will miss him so much he was a big gentle calming presence in our lives.

I'm so sorry. i'm sure your house feels empty even with the basenjis

Oh no! I'm so sorry to read this. 😞 My thoughts are with you and your family.

Aww Shelley I am so sorry:(

Run free Max xx

He had a good long life with you then and you should at least try to take some comfort from that. You will miss him for a long time but once you get over the shock of today, you can focus on the great times you had with him.


I am very sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you. He is still with you as long as he is in your heart.
