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.

Thanks for sharing your story with everyone Max! You are one lucky doggie- even if you have to share mommy with all those cats!
