Since this blog is fairly new, I thought it might be nice to introduce you to Max. (Why not introduce you to my wonderful husband first? Well, because Max is a more willing participant.)
Max is the super intelligent, sometimes poorly behaved beast we rescued from the local shelter back in 2002. When we found him, he was 2 or 3 years old. He'd been abandoned by his owner, and was the quietest dog at the shelter. He impressed us by shaking hands and giving us a "high five" when we were introduced. Someone, at some time must have loved this dog, because he came to us knowing a bunch of commands...Sit, Lay Down, Come, Sit Pretty, Speak....and in the few years we've had him, he's happily learned more...Head Down, Roll Over, Open the Door, Go Lay Down, Hurry Up!. I am very proud of him.
This is him staring at me, begging for a treat. Food is his number one love.
Max (aka Maximus Rex)
