5 Years with Max

Today, the 19th of July, was our Anniversary of having Maxie in our lives. 5 years ago today THIS happened and we adopted Maxie into our home and our hearts. I can't believe I ever worried about being able to take care of him. I can't believe I worried I wouldn't love him the way he deserved to be loved! This lil 23 pound dog has me wrapped around his paw, and when he is on pain, I am in pain. And when he is super happy, I can't help but grin. He makes everyone in the house happy and is such a blessing. I may have had to wait 25 years to get my first REAL pet (no I am telling you goldfish do NOT count!) but he was well worth the wait.

We took him out after dinner for ice cream, and man did he PIG out! I don't share my ice cream, I am a germaphobe people, but everyone else does, and he prefers the hard stuff. He will eat soft serve if it is what's available but he prefers hard ice cream. So he had some of Mom's vanilla, some of Sandy's mint and a LOT of my Dad's chery vanilla. The dog was biting into that ice cream like you would not believe and it was a big cone!! The dog was in a sugar frenzy when he got home, trying to get a little too friendly with me, me yelling NO MAX!, and finally he is in a happy food coma, snoring zzzzz's. I love this dog!! So Happy Anniversary my lil guy and here are some of my all time fave pics!

P.S. I managed to design my first Grab button, so I hope any of you who collect them on your blogs or Who like to have them, will Grab away!! :p

Happy anniversary Max! :)

What? You didn't buy him his very own cone? Kero always gets his own ice-cream when we have from the ice-cream man (and often gets a little bowl of his own when we have from the freezer too).

The 5 year anniversary of me getting Kero is coming up too.

Awww so adorable! I love the picture with him sticking his tongue out. LOL That makes me smile everytime I see my dog Star do that too. :) Dogs are an amazing family member to have in the house I truly believe that they help people in many ways. :)
