The Charlie Bravo Story

Max is gone.

I don’t have it in me to be witty or creative right now, so I’ll cut to the chase:

Max is gone.

Earlier tonight, I thought it odd that he wasn’t glued to my side as he usually is, so I began checking the cars to make sure he hadn’t stowed away; no luck. After checking the house, I looked out the back door and saw a pile of brown fur out in the back yard; it was Max, alive, but just barely. I won’t go into detail, but it was as bad as I’ve ever seen.  Mom had seen the neighbor’s farm dogs, two Pyrenees and a collie, in the yard earlier, and we’re 99% sure that they’re responsible.

The owner lives down a gated road, and either ignored me beating the crap out of his gate or wasn’t home. We called the sheriff who came out to file a report and inspect the body, but what could he really do? I had no choice but to bury Max under by the light of the full moon.

Max was my dog, my only dog, for a long time until Charlie came along. I would be doing him a massive injustice to even attempt to eulogies him, as no words can do him justice.

There are two holes involved here, one in the back yard, and one in my heart;

RIP, Max; you surely deserved better.

  185. Carrie Reid

    Oh how tragic . My heart breaks for your family and sweet Max.

  186. Anna White

    Our sincerest condolences. In many ways I believe this is harder than the loss of a human family member or at least I have found it to be that way. I do hope you are able to identify the culprits and go some way to ensuring there is no repetition.

  187. Carrie Riches

    I don’t even know what to say right now. I can’t imagine the pain you must be feeling, the anger at the neighbor’s lack of care. Max deserved a long life with you, not this end. He wasn’t alone and he was well loved, but that is small comfort at the moment. We don’t need you to be witty, we’re crying along with you and wish we could take away your pain. I’m just so damn sorry. <3

  188. Suzanne Hafer

    Heartbreaking! You were well loved Max!

  189. Aimee Hahn

    So so sorry. There isn’t much to say that will help. Sending hugs.

  325. Janice Mecca

    It’s so hard losing a pet when your pets are part of the family. To lose a pet because of someone’s irresponsibility makes that loss all the harder. The anger you feel is certainly justified but don’t let it consume you. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  326. Margie Webb

    The only thing that I keep thinking was that you were with Max in his final moments. He didn’t die alone, he died surrounded by your love. Which I know doesn’t help at all right now but maybe someday it will bring a little peace to your heart.

  327. Ethel Sleith

    Oh Bret, I’m so, very sorry. My sincere condolences to all at the Casa, animal and human.

  340. Belinda Land

    I’m Still Here

    Family and my friends, please don’t mourn for me
    I’m still here, though you don’t see.
    I’m right by your side each night and day
    and within your heart I long to stay.

    My body is gone but I’m always near.
    I’m everything you feel, see or hear.
    My spirit is free, but I’ll never depart
    as long as you keep me alive in your heart.

    I’ll never wander out of your sight-
    I’m the brightest star on a summer night.
    I’ll never be beyond your reach-
    I’m the warm moist sand when you’re at the beach.

    I’m the colorful leaves when fall comes around
    and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
    I’m the beautiful flowers of which you’re so fond,
    The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

    I’m the first bright blossom you’ll see in the spring,
    The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
    I’m the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
    and you’ll see that the face in the moon is mine.

    When you start thinking there’s no one to love you,
    you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
    I’ll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
    and you’ll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

    I’m the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
    and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
    I’m the smile you see on a baby’s face.
    Just look for me, friend, I’m everyplace!

  341. Lisa Martinez

    There are no words. I am sure he was a beautiful companion as you were an equally good parent. Rest jntil peace Max.

  342. Melody Gryner

Many thoughts of you and your family, a dogs love is such an amazing feeling and they become our family. Rip beautiful Max xo

    Just know that through all these posts, we grieve with you even though yours is deeper. You have let us in and now a little bit of your family seems like part of our family. Sorry and prayers may seem like empty words but if we all were together, your family would know the magnitude of our love, care, and concern we have. I know you are strong and blessed. Through this the questions arise with doubt and regret. We do not know all or why but through it, know we are willing to walk through this with you. You have given so much through your words, I hope you feel the same through how many have responded.
