maxie, maxima, maximillian, maxwell

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog-dog rescue

....having everyone home and a cow ear. In the alternative, a dog park full of snow. Getting pets.

....strange men approaching him and anything to do with citronella. Ribbons taking his food.

Favorite Toy:
Rocky -- his plush squeaky squirrel

Favorite Food:
Currently, Evo. Im the past, Steve's Real Food, Greenies and anything Food Lady or Walk Man are eating.

Favorite Walk: park, dog park, and any place there are squirrels. The dog park has no squirrels. They must be smarter than I thought.

Best Tricks:
"dead dog"-He will sit. He knows "let's go to bed".

Arrival Story:
Food Lady needed a fur fix and went to the humane society. I stared and looked forlorn with my big, big eyes, but I was the only one not barking. She liked that. She came back with Walk Man three days later, after consultation with one another, I went to my new home. I fooled them. I bark. Its a very big low bark for such a little guy.

I was a stray. The pound named me "Clarence". The name didn't fit. Then, they told Food Lady and Walk Man that I was a poodle doxie mix. NO WAY!!! Terrier/Poodle, maybe. They say I have "attitude". I'm long and close to the ground. Food Lady said I might be a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen. At least in part. Doesn't matter. She loves me. I am soft and curly. Groomer thinks I'm a Lhaso-Poo. Food Lady gives me new breeds every week. Check back! I've been a Bichon Frise/Cairn Terrier. Now, I think I've been assigned Wheaton Terrier/ Poodle aka Whoodle. I'm very handsome. Food Lady tells me that so it must be true. Oops, now I'm a Lhasa-Poo. What's next? Westie Poo.

I've Been On Dogster Since:

On December 24, 2012, I had to leave you guys. It was my time. Walk Man was carrying me up and down stairs. Food Lady's food couldn't make me happy anymore. That cancer thing took over. I fought with everything I had. Really. And I know you guys tried. Just two days before, you took me for a special trip to the dog park. I just didn't have any walk left in me. I did like being there but it wasn't comfortable. Rides in cars were tough. Something (this cancer thing) took the happy from my happy life with Walk Man, Food Lady, Ribbons, Oma, and Benji. I was ready. Please be ready, too. I know there is a space in your hearts for me and from me. Just fill it with other joy. There's always room for love and joy. Thank you. Now, will you both sit down and WRITE!!!! Oh, and Food Lady, keep on with food but do some billing while you are at it. I love you all.


I just saw how long it's been....

Lot's has happened to me since my last entry. I got something they call "cancer". I'm not supposed to know, but I do. I got sick in March 2011. Food Lady saw me shaking at times I didn't normally shake. Then, I got all the yucky stuff going...vomit, diarrhea,and funny eating. The shaking got Food Lady and Walk Man upset because my teeth would clatter.

We went to my vet and she found nothing. I had just had blood work in December so she wanted to hold off. Walk Man insisted and they found my calcium levels were too high. Vet knew it was a sign of this "cancer" thing. Next thing I know we head to University of Wisconsin Vet School.

Yup, I got the cancer thing. So I had surgery and they took it away. Then, I had to keep going back for something called "chemo".

I was doing pretty good. I've been playing, eating and getting lots of pets. I was having this "chemo" at home.

On my most recent check up, they found more of this cancer. So, they want me to have more surgery. Food Lady and Walk Man talk a lot about what we should do.

I trust them.


Max here, Ribbons typing.

Ok, so Food Lady and Walkman are away. I can't type, but Ribbons can. So she's helping. I know that Ribbons helping is odd-doo, but I am dictating to her while she's on the big computer at the desk. But we have things to say.

First, I like it here. So does Ribbons. But we want our food bowls always full. ALWAYS. Second, more trips to the dog park. MORE for me. MORE. Third, pets when we want them. ALWAYS. Greenies. ALWAYS. MORE. MORE. We'd like to try chocolate so you better keep it hidden.

I'd like to get more writing in without Ribbons intervening. So Food Lady needs to type. Ribbons wants to get more food without any interference, so leave the fridge open.

That's it for now. Ribbons wants to get off the desk. She said there are no food crumbs there, so eat more when you are at your desk. And leave the Fridge open.
