Likes:
Giving Kisses - to anyone - any time! Running the "Zooms" (Running around the house), outside walks any time and any attention he can get from anyone - at any time! He will reward them by licking anything he can reach!

Pet-Peeves:
No table scraps! (he is on a food allergy diet - Duck and Potatoe),Loud noises, and not getting enough attention. Also when his mini-tennis balls end up under the microwave cart and he can't get to them - very frustrating! He will "moan" by the cart!

Favorite Toy:
mini-tennis balls, his football, the frog, Birthday brown bear. the kitty, oh and anything you will throw for his to go get and bring back to you - but not give back to you!

Favorite Food:
Treats (thank goodness they make Duck and Potatoe treats)

Favorite Walk:
Outside, anywhere! Mostly at Grandpa Ed and Nancy's house when Grandma Nancy takes him out by the lake

Best Tricks:
Singing/talking (kinda a mini-howl), Dance-dance, Spin (in a circle) rollover, Hi-Five, shake, "bed" where he goes to his bed and stays until I release him with the command; or "Sleep" where he lays down and puts his head down on his front paws

Arrival Story:
I was not planning on purchasing a dog right yet and certainly not thru a pet store! I was researching the Papillon breed and went to get dog food with a friend for her dog and there he was - my Mighty Max One in a Million! He jumped up on the window when I walked by so I got him out to play. Good thing I came back for him 8 hours later because he was really sick with a chest infection. The 1st 14 days I had him, he was at the vet 8 times - thanks to Dr. Andy - Mighty Max is well and happy now.

Bio:
Mighty Max is a purebred Papillon but he is on the bigger size, outside of show range for sure - so that is why he ended up in the pet store. I love all 14 pounds of him!

Mighty Max's Mumblings on Life


OH No - Another Surgery?

----------Mighty Max's Version---------------
Yep, Another surgery - looks like it. Momma took me to the vet again and dropped me off and left me there! All day and boy was it a busy weird day. But I got lots of attention so that was not so bad. And I had VIP service this time - I had my very own vet tech with me ALL day! That was pretty cool. So they gave me this stuff that made me sleepy, and that nice lady doc was there, and then they brought me back to my travel bed and I napped, and and then Mom came and got me and I couldn't get comfortable all night. I was really hungry, I just wanted to be around mom and kept making these weird noises, I don't know why, and didn't want to sit, didn't want to lay down, didn't want to sleep long, I didn't want to go out and WHY did I feel so weird???.....

-----------Mom's version--------------------
Mighty Max's eye mass regrew again and it was time for another dental so the vet combined the two to save me money thank goodness. Because of his reactions to shots and food allergies etc, he was assigned a vet tech to be with him the whole day and watch him closely, which I loved of course. He actually had 2 eye masses removed and lost no teeth - yay! He was very groggy and whiny from the anesthesia and milking the fact that he knew something had gone on and he didn't know why he didn't feel right, but overall he did just fine! he hated the cone-head look but only really had to wear it when I went to work or couldn't watch him.

A dog's Purpose Email was a good one

My mom got this email and it was pretty cool so we thought I would add it to my page -

A Dog's Purpose (from a 6-year-old) -


Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a

ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron,

his wife, Lisa, And their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to

Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.



I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I

told the Family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered

to perform The euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their

home.



As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they

thought it would Be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the

procedure. They felt As though Shane might learn something from the

experience



The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat

as Belker's Family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting

the old dog for The last time, that I wondered if he understood what

was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.



The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition

without any Difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while

after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal

lives are Shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been

listening quietly, Piped up, "I know why."



Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his

mouth next Stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting

explanation.



He said, "People are born so that they can learn how

to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice,

right?" The Six-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how

to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."



Live simply.

Love generously.

Care deeply.

Speak kindly.



Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn

things like:



When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.


Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.


Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your
face to be pure Ecstasy.


Take naps.


Stretch before rising.


Run, romp, and play daily.


Thrive on attention and let people touch you.


Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.


On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.


On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady
tree.


When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire
body.


Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.


Be loyal.


Never pretend to be something you're not.


If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.


When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close
by and nuzzle them gently.


ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
