On Friday, May 4, 2018, our precious dog, Maxie, passed away in our arms at the age of fourteen. This book is dedicated to her memory. She will retain a special place in our hearts forever. She was a marvelous companion and brought joy to many with her friendly demeanor and a tail that seemed to be constantly wagging.
Maxie was the centerpiece of a number of my writings and poems. This book contains the Maxie’s Magnificent Adventures series. These stories were written over a number of years with our growing grandchildren being the subject of these adventures. The epilogue was written shortly after Maxie’s passing and read to the family at her memorial service. My wish is that you and your family enjoy this book and, through it, keep your memories of your Maxies alive. Sharing this book has helped me through the great pain of her loss. She was so much more to me than just a dog.
