Saying goodbye to my companion for the last 7 years. Last week I said goodbye to my dog, Maya - my companion and a lady. Maya was 14 years of age, a respectable age for a dog. The last year was not an easy one for her, getting old and all the difficulties and discomforts coming with it.

Last week I said goodbye to my dog, Maya – my companion and a lady. Maya was 14 years of age, a respectable age for a dog. The last year was not an easy one for her, getting old and all the difficulties and discomforts coming with it.

Maya came to me 7 years ago. She was already 6 years old, from a guy I rented a house from who was taking care of her for his brother, a junkie who went to kick-off in Thailand and decided to stay there. The guy was not really enthusiastic about becoming a full time dog owner, and since I really liked Maya from the first moment, I decided to adopt her.

Since then, we went through a lot together – moving houses, friends coming and going, good times and less good times…
And now we say goodbye.

Wherever you are now, I hope there are tons of balls there, and someone to throw them for you…

    I know how you feel. I lost my first dog just before my 21st bday. She was about to turn 15. I don't think I had ever loved something so much. I'm sorry for your loss.

    thank you very much guys. I sent this in a year ago, and thought it will never be published... so, now it is just in time for a year memorial. It is great to see Maya again, and great to get your lomolove people! thank you.

    Your story brings tears in my eyes. I fully understand your sorrow because our beloved dog ChouChou passed last August. Although it's been almost a year, he still often visit me in my dreams. Well, we have to face it and hope the best for your Maya and my ChouChou...
