So Long, Maxie and Mikey

Maxie and Mikey came to our house the very same day. Maxie was 4 months old and Mikey was 3 months old. They have been best friends ever since.

We lost Maxie in July, he succumbed to Osteosarcoma. Mikey left us 3 days ago, I think he died of a broken heart. He lived to the ripe old age of 10 1/2 years old, which is unheard of for a Great Dane.

Such a patient soul!

Now our hearts are broken, but we will always have the memories of all the precious time we had together!

Bye, my bestest buddies!
