Max's puppy pic

Gone four years now but never forgotten, Maxwell, the Wonder Cowdog, a Border McNabX. Always a gentleman around people, hellaciously good on "eat your lunch" cows & bulls, gentle and guarding of babies & ol folks... 

Max waiting for the next go...

His ashes are on Sun Mountain in Oregon, along with the Cowman's. I'm sure they are together doing what they loved best, working cattle...

The view from Max and the Cowman's


  1. Good friends never really die. We just carry them around in our hearts.

  2. Followed the link to the post from 2010, and it choked me up big time. What an amazing tribute you paid a very worthy dog.

    I'm sorry for your loss.

  3. MURPHY'S LAW: Ever so true.

    JENNY: I miss Max, he was a once in a life time dog. Wish I had pics of him working cattle, cow skiing, setting in the wading pool with me and Maude...

  4. I am learning how a dog can work its way right into your heart. Maybe I should have allowed Buffy to hide in my case last week! ;)

  5. Love, love, love my doggy. Know how you miss you Maxwell.

  6. Those really special ones never leave us. Good to know he and Cowman are together.

  7. What a good dog!

    You know, I didn't know that dogs worked cattle until I went to Texas. Sheep, yes, but not cattle. Sadly ignorant...

    God bless.

  8. Dogs lives are shorter than ours because they don't need as much time to become perfect in God's eyes.

    Blessed memory.

  9. GRANNYMAR: It would be wonderful if you had a dog.

    GRANNY ANNIE: Callie is such a character, I enjoy reading of your adventures together.

    ARKANSAS PATTI: I'm sure you understand. Mighty was a great little guy.

    LSP: A good working dog is worth more than diamonds.

    EURIPIDES: Max had more class than some people I've known.

  10. My dog is Slim. You got me mixed us with Arkansas Patti and that is a good thing. Her dog is Callie:) lol We both love our dogs like you loved Maxwell.

  11. Blessings to Max the Wonder Dog!!!

  12. GRANNY ANNIE: Thanks for setting me straight, blondes are so easily confused...

    CINDEE: Hope Jack is doing well.
