Arrival Story: I grew up with dogs and I couldn't wait to get one when my husband and I bought a house. My husband said we had to wait a year (he'd never owned a pet), I said 6 months. I won. I searched petfinder.com for puppies and we saw Max's picture. We passed the screening process for Rescue Every Dog and went to see him on a Sat. with all of his other brothers (the O Boys litter, we changed his name from Opie to Max). He was the smallest of the litter (he's now ~80 lbs). We brought him home the same day and he's been spoiled every since. He loves spending time with Grandma and Grandpa because they spoil him too.
Mom admits she's been updating my (human) brother's blog more than mine. She said she's sorry, and I get extra treats. This works for me. My human brother is now 6 months old. I think his first word is going to be "Max" or "dog", since there is also a dog at his daycare that's named Max, so he hears my name 24/7. The little guy is starting to pet me, and I love kissing his face. Dad freaks out, but Mom figures it's going to happen since I love the little guy. The little guy doesn't seem to mind too much, and Mom does watches over me closely so I don't get too zealous. Mom has had dogs her entire life versus Dad with me as his first dog. Mom is really proud of how I've been around him, even though he gets more attention than I do. Mom does a great job at giving me attention though.
So, Mom's been busy on the blog for my baby brother and Facebook and ignorning my blog. The nerve. My baby brother turns 4 months tomorrow. We're getting along great. I love to kiss him when he's in his activity center and I'll lay down on the rug in his room when my Mom feeds him. I'm excited for this weekend. I'm going to get spoiled by my uncle and aunt visiting from TN.
Mom has been way too busy to write or check my account, but here's an update. I become a brother to my human brother on April 25th. I've loved having Mom home, while she's on maternity leave. I like the little guy. I barked when he first arrived home, but now I love to kiss him on his feet and hands. The little guy even sleeps through my barking. Mom said it's because he heard my barking when he was in her belly. It's amazing!!! Mom and Dad have made sure I'm still getting my love, so we're one big happy family!!
