Sadly, Ginger recently died from thyroid cancer at the age of 15, leaving Forsberg completely devastated. Suddenly alone, the dog seemed to be constantly searching for his buddy all over the house. He didn't understand the disappearance of his best friend.

Confronted with the emotional turmoil of her pup, Jen Philion couldn't sit back and doing nothing. Seeing that the chagrin wasn't alleviating, she decided to find him a new companion. A few days later, they welcomed Maxwell, a young kitten, into their loving home.

Because they don't understand the disappearance of a loved one, animals often suffer just as much as humans. Learning to live alone after spending years with someone else can be extremely difficult. Sometimes the only remedy is to offer them the opportunity to develop another friendship. The one between Maxwell and Forsberg strengthens every day and has permitted the pooch to regain his joy.
