Goodbye, Maurice

Maurice was hit by a snow plow on Oxford street last Wednesday. His initial prognosis was negative, but not unmanageable: a broken femur. We were able to spend the weekend comforting him here at home. Today was going to be his surgery. The surgeon found that his shoulder had snapped as well, causing nerve damage and complicating Maurice's prospects for recovery. It made sense to let him go.

We'll miss you, Maurice.

So sad! Just from the posts it looks like you took some great pictures of him. Nate and I both thought he looked like he just fit with you guys!

He looks like he was the sweetest dog. I want to kiss him! I am so sorry you had to let him go. You will be with him again someday. I totally believe that.

This is so sad! Losing pets is so hard. Even though you only had him for a short time I know he was a part of your family. Maurice was a special dog, and though it is not fun at all to think about, I'm sure he is feeling much better now.

We're thinking about you guys.
