I'm staying with my boys until tomorrow. I'm trying to toughen Maxwell up and have gone to great lengths to work on improving his toughness - he can be a bit of a drama queen at times. Mother says The Man "enables" this behavior too, whatever that means.
Anywag - this afternoon, The Man took Maxwell and I to the back yard so we could play Frisbee. I don't actually like to catch the Frisbee, I prefer to run interference (is that the right term...I don't know my sports that well). I like to run at Maxwell who is running towards the Frisbee. So, while he is focused on catching the Frisbee, I'm trying to body block him to keep him from catching it. I'm pretty good at it You wouldn't guess it based on my size, but I can push Maxwell around pretty well.
So, after the third toss, I was running at Maxwell and I *may* have *possibly* touched his paw in a rather (allegedly) aggressive manner. Maxwell yipped like a baby. Have you ever seen those soccer/football players who are BARELY touched and then collapse on the ground as if they had been shot? Yeah. That was Maxwell. What. A. Baby. The Man, of course, fell for it and made sure Maxwell was okay - he was fiiiiiine! I ran inside, trying to get away from the sissy boy as fast as possible. Maxwell came limping in a few minutes later. You will be interested to know that his limp mysteriously disappeared when The Man wasn't looking. What a faker!!
Eventually, I tried to make nice and apologize to Maxwell for him being such a baby. While he was napping on the bed, I gave him an Izzy Kissy, letting him know I was (somewhat) sorry. Ya know what... he totally dissed me and walked away! What?!?
So, I tried to be nice and play with Maxwell and what do I get?!? Rejection from my apology.
Boys are silly.

Sorry you are getting dissed. That is not fun. I'm sure tomorrow, everything will be forgotten! You did good by playing nice!
Since Maxwell apparently rejected your apology why not step on another of his paws? You need to show him who is boss.
well Im sure by tomorrow he will have forgotten what he was mad at you for..
He was probably just embarrased or...he was continuing his attention seeking behavior to get the man's sympathy for a while longer.
Cool story Izzy! Sowee to hear Maxwell dissed you. That wasn't very nice of him espawcially since you tried to apologize. I like Coco's suggestion. BOL maybe he will cowboy up next time. :)
