going in the car to visit grandma and her poodle Perry

kitties in his bed, pet sitters he has never met before and kitties in every photo of him

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
Blue Buffalo Senior food, pizza crusts and anything else his people drop

Favorite Walk:
Through the woods behind our old condo

Best Tricks:
I have not had to clean up dropped or spilled food since I got Max. He cleans up thoroughly for me every time.

Arrival Story:
My ex decided he wanted a dog. A real man's best friend. He picked Max out at the Humane Society but they wouldn't let him take Max until I came to meet him too. That dog knew from the start who to turn on the charm for. They said that his previous owners had moved away and left him tied in the yard of their apartment for days (in July) until a neighbor took him to the shelter. From the first minute he came home with me he was a real momma's boy. My ex hated that. It was supposed to be his dog, not mine. Max would just sit and watch the driveway for momma to come home any time I left. So when I got divorced, the main condition was that Max came with me. Max has a new Dad that loves him and takes him for walks and speaks kindly to him and never shouts so he loves this Daddy very much.

Max has acquired 3 baby sisters this year. Unfortunately for him they are all kitties. But he has gotten used to their crazy ways and he's a very good boy. He would even share his food bowl but I had to move it so the kitties don't get upset tummies anymore. UPDATE: That's old news, now Max has 6 kitty sisters. Poor Max!! How did he get stuck with the Crazy Cat Lady for a Mom?

I was really REALLY rotten at the vet today. I am a snappy boy so Mommy was trying to get the muzzle on me to protect Dr. Kimm and I snapped at MOMMY!!! I have never done that before and Mommy was very very upset. I am getting worse in my old age. Then I got the muzzle off and a poor tech had to hold me tight while Mommy guarded my face. I was in so much distress that my tongue was turning blue so they decided not to put it back on. All they were doing was giving me a Lyme vaccine and a old guy health check but Mommy asked them to draw my blood and do all the other tests early because she wants to cut me down to only having to go once a year instead of going back in April for my heartworm tests. I caused her so much stress that now she feels all out of s0rts and I ruined her day off. I think we are both in serious need of a nap right now. I did hear something about maybe a Frosty Paws treat though. Mommy told Auntie Karen that she doesn't want to reward me for being bad but that I can have one later.


It's my birthday!!!!

Well, actually since some mean people abandoned me 9 years ago, we don't really know when my birthday is but Mommy picked this day when I came to live with her. Mom just gave me a rawhide to chew on because she is working this morning but I heard a rumor that I may get to go for a ride in the car later (My FAVORITE thing in the whole world) Yay!!
On my birthday, I just want to take the chance to tell people my story. 9 years ago I was living with some people. I barely remember that now and I don't remember what they called me either. One day, those people moved away. They tied me to the tree in the yard and when they packed up the van, I thought they would come back for me. But they didn't and I was so sad, Then a few days later, I was sad and wet and HUNGRY. I was still tied to that tree. That's when the nice neighbor realized what had happened and she took me to the Humane Society. They put me in a cage and I was so scared. I was really hungry and my ribs were showing but I still couldn't eat much because I was so scared. Then one day this man and little girl came and met me. They liked me but the people said that the man's wife would have to come too before they could let me go home. So the man called her and she came home a few days early early from her vacation at the beach because they needed to know right away. When she came, I knew right away that I had to impress her so she couldn't say no. I heard a rumor that she didn't even want a dog. So I sucked up to her bigtime until she just couldn't leave me behind. My new Mom was not a dog person but she sure was a sucker for a sad face. She took me home and they called me Max (and fattened me up) and I have loved her with all my heart ever since. I was a bit scared of the man because he was lound and sometimes mean. Then a few years later, Mom moved out and left that man behind (I don't think she tied him to a tree though) but she TOOK ME WITH HER. I guess she loved me the most. Two years later we met my new Dad and he has been with us for 5 years now. I love my Daddy sooo much and he treats me really nice and gives me love. He was a little scared and shocked when he first met me. He thought that women have small dogs so when he came to visit, he was expecting some yippy little thing but he was greated by a big WOOF from a big dog. It took him a few visits to get used to me. But since then he has helped Mom take care of me and when we lived at the condo he used to walk me all of the time. Now I have my own fenced in yard so I walk myself! I am not so happy sharing my Mom with all the kitties but Mom loves them so I put up with it. She still loves me and I am still her special boy.

I'm so bored. There are just too many kitties in this house and nothing fun for a guy like me. One kitty was one too many and now we have two. That's just crazy. What about me? I was the only child and I liked it. These cats are crazy! Always running around and getting into everything. Sometimes at night they go on the nightstand and drop things on my head. And today when I tried to take a nap, Allie climbed in MY bed AGAIN and joined me. I looked at Mom and begged her to make Allie move but she thought it was funny and she just left her there. She told me that Allie loves me and I should be happy to share. I'm SO NOT HAPPY to share. Bailey kinda leaves me alone but not Allie. She is there every time I turn around. I even try to take naps downstairs in the hallway and next thing I know there she is. Dad even took a picture because he thought it was cute. Ummm...NO! Not cute! Get her away from me! I used to get the whole house and my Mom all to myself (well, except for Dad) but now it's just over-run with kittens. And I overheard Mom saying that she's thinking of a third one for Christmas. We have an A, Allie, and a B, Bailey so now she wants a C. I think Mom needs to stay away from that lady's website who she got the girls from. But when I am feeling really, really neglected I know how to lay a real guilt trip on Mom. I put my chin firmly on her lap and stare at her with my big brown eyes until she stops whatever she is doing and gives me some Max time.
