All About Cats & Dogs!

or should i say...dogs & cats
'cos firstly
it's max's birthday!

happy 2nd birthday max puppy!


my friend elizabeth's dog had 6 puppies
2 white ones and 4 black ones.
i didn't want any of them
'cos i already had a little black dog..ellie.

then one night when her puppies were nearly six weeks old,
i had a dream one night.
i dreamed that one little white puppy was mine to look after.

i went over to elizabeth's house and looked at her puppies again.
i wanted max's sister, i thought she was cute
and i had heard females were better at housetraining etc.

but
that very day, max's little sister got sick.
elizabeth took her to the vet.
there was nothing the vet could do...
and very sadly, she died.

max was the only white puppy left.


as you can see from this photo...
he's not photogenic!!! lol

but he's a loyal dog with a beautiful heart...
he's playful and patient,
forgiving and friendly.

he loves his food a bit too much
and the only thing that gets to him
is hunger...
watch out if he's really hungry
he'll snap at ellie and defend every mouthful!

just like all the other men around here...
watch out if they've got hungry bellies!
they growl!

i love max to bits
and have enjoyed him every day since getting him...
despite his messes
and fur and slobber!

my beautiful 2 year old!

the cats will have to wait 'til tomorrow..hehe..
i didn't think i was going to rave quite so much about the dog...lol

  9. Oh he looks gorgeous, it was obviously meant to be that he came to live with you. Aren't we all nuts about our animals? You should see the attention our two kittens get, they're spoiled rotten!
