He loves Kraft American Singles (American Cheese)
Strangers, Being Groomed, anyone that tounches his paws
Anything he can rip apart, but he loves stuffed animals!
again american cheese
We used to walk 2 miles around the park every day! He loved that!
Go Night Night (Lays his head on the floor) Leave It
I was 14 years old and I volunteered at Pets N' Pals a local non profit no kill animal shelter! He came in as a puppy, the people that brought him in said he had found his way into their backyard and they had feed him table scraps while trying to locate his family! They couldn't handle a puppy! I had been begging my mom for a puppy for years! I promised I would take care of him and begged her to just come look at him! She said he's adorable but I want to think about it! We went home and got books on cocker spaniels and she said ok if I would take all responsibility for him! I agreed and the next day he was mine! I paid for his adoption fee a whopping $50.00 and then we took him to the vet for a check up and shots I paid for it! And then we bought his collar, leash, food, bowls, etc. I always did follow up on my bargain! He slept with me in my bed, I walked him every day! And I always worked for family members to make money! He was my pride and joy I loved taking care of him! I really believe I am who I am today because of the love and responsibility I shared with Max! I believe a dog is a great introduction and teacher for a child into the real world of love and responsibility!
Max is currently living with my mother in law! They are inseparable...when we (my husband and I) got ready to move out of her house! We decided it would be best to rehome Max as I was pregnant and pretty close to my due date and he can become very jealous and he is unpredictable! He loves his life and is totally spoiled! Bobbie (his new mommy) tells me all the time she is sooooo happy I left him because she lives alone and he is her constant companion! They had just last christmas lost their lab mix Pebbles! And Max had already become part of the family! I still get to see him any time I want, which is great for me! I'm so glad he's got a great life! He's happy healthy and spoiled! I love you Maxie Boy!

Just A dog
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog,"
or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog."
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."
Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."
Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog,"
but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog,"
and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand
phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."
"Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust,
and pure unbridled joy.
"Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a dog", I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away
from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog",
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being
"just a man or woman."
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog"
because they "just don't understand."
