Living to the MAX

This here's my buddy, Max. He was my first ever foster brother, and he stayed with us in GooberStan for a couple of weeks on his way to his furrever home. He's a rescue pup like me, he's one cool Dale and he's got the heart of a lion!






That's Max on the left. He is a three-legged wonder! If you want to read his back story you can go here and if you want to know what he's been up to recently you can go here. He had just had one of his back legs amputated just a couple of weeks before he came to stay with us, but you wouldn't know it from the way he wrassled.








Not only is he a goober of the highest order, but he is also a supremely gifted cuddler! That boy was also full of a lot of ATTITUDE! He found his furrever home through Airedale Rescue, and now he works with his new mom as a therapy dog changing lives all over the place. Here I'm preparing him for his future therapy dog work by being extremely annoying. He took it like a pro!





Some of you may have heard of Bissell vacuum cleaner's contest for a new spokespet for their new line of Pet Lover's products. Well, the winner gets $10,000 for their favorite rescue group (among other fab prizes) and my Maxie is one of the finalists! The winners are supposed to be announced later today.



Who in their right mind could say no to this face?


Proud of my Maximus,
Stanley

We heard from Max's mama that Bissell has put off announcing the grand prize winner until sometime next week. We'll keep you posted.

We're crossing our paws that Max wins the contest! Mom read all the posts about him (we're still in bed) and she kept wiping her eyes so she could see the monitor. What a brave boy! What wonderful people along the way! Let us know the results!

Oh MY, Stanley! Max is a heartbreaker! Momma followed your links to read all about his accident and his overcoming of it. We laughed, we cried.... seriously, what a touching story.

We tried to go vote for Max, but it was too late! Whatever happens, he owes a TINY bit of credit to YOU, who I'm sure taught him all about being a goober boy.

Happy Easter to you, your sissy, and your Girl! Oh, can't forget Merv!

Max is such a special boy. Is his mom going to start a blog for him soon? I can't wait to read about how his career as a therapy dog goes. I know he will be very good at the job but its fun to read about it.
