Someone Had A Birthday Yesterday!!!
My little Buddy Max (short for Max-A-Million because that is approximately how much he has cost us to date)......had a Birthday yesterday and was NINE years old!!! This is pretty amazing since he has almost died on more occasions than I care to remember.....
He has had a plethora of health issues from the time he was just a few weeks old until his latest issue...which is full blown diabetes, requiring 2 insulin shots per day. But he is a trooper. He knows the routine. As soon as he finishes eating his prescription dog food, he knows he gets a dog biscuit.....right after his shot and he will very patiently sit, with his head dropped down so I'll have access to his neck for his shot.
Then he grabs his treat and heads to the living room to savor it!!
He went to the groomers yesterday, not that you can tell by any of these pictures as the first order of business is to roll on the carpet until all coifs are back into a typical "bed head" state!! LOL!!! We are neither fancy nor formal around here....and bed head fur is just fine with me!!
He may be a "geriatric" dog now but he's still got it in the looks department.....all the Ladies at the vet think he is a HOTTIE!!! LOL!!!
Max is what they call a "grinner"....when he sees you he grins....he shows all his teeth, top and bottom and it is a most distinctive GRIN all while his entire back section is doing a very erratic happy wag..
I have YET to catch him still long enough and at just the right moment to catch a full grin....but this is close...it's blurry. It is so funny to see him grin!!!
But all the excitement was enough to cause this little old man to head for his bed early.....(this would be the bed BEFORE he goes to bed)....he slept till our bedtime then it was off to our bed for the rest of the evening.
Now go HERE.
Laura has a little baby named Coal....Max looked just like Coal when he was that little!!
Nothing like the love of a dog!!!!!!!!
