Maxey was 12 and had been with us for 3 1/2 years.
I tell people I fell in love with Maxey the instant Karen brought him thru the doors at Petco, Dubuque, IA, and that is a fact. I immediately took his leash from her, barely allowed people to pet him and snuck a few pictures of him home. Needless to say, my husband was not impressed, but I convinced him to "foster" him with the intent to adopt him once we got to know him. We learned within hours we would no longer be able to have toys in the house because he would guard and stalk anything that walked by him. Other than that he was a sweet boy, and he was Alex's constant companion and shadow the last couple of years.
Maxey was my "hound boy" with his long face and markings and I will miss him terribly.
