Here are Max's puppy pictures when he was only 2 months old - before we knew he would be coming to live with us. Now you see how we fell for him! It was a slow 2 months until we found out we got to bring Max home with us in mid-June (he is 4 months old in the first set of photos below). Oh, and here are Max's parents - at the bottom of the page, see Max as Dark Red Male. Adorable, huh.
Saying bye to Adele - I'll miss her...
My mom and dad say I never sit still... I guess that's true. Even when hanging with my big brother Cisco, I cannot sit completely still for the camera.
Here I am relaxing with a nice stick.
Finally! We got Max to look at the camera long enough
for us to snap the shot!
Max giving big brother Paco kisses. He loooooves Paco and
wants to grow up to be just like him
Look at me laying on big brother Cisco's legs. He pretends to be a big old grump but he is really a sweetie.
Here is a webcam shot of me woo'ing with my brothers. Cisco always starts it, but Paco and I just can't help but join in after a while. I am on the burgundy bed; see Cisco is standing up - he just woke Paco and I up from our naps and started bugging us. (see? I am not the only pest around here!!)
Here are Max and Cisco on a hike a week later.
And a day later... Max, Cisco and Paco at another spot
at Sawmill Reservoir in Breck. Notice Paco is about to
break and make a run for it, while Max finally sits still!
Maybe by the time he is 2 we can get him to actually look
at the camera.
Next... Cisco teaches me how to dig for rodents in the snow! (my head is on the right... buried in the snow). What a great life this is learning from my big brothers!
Now a threesome digging in the snow for rodents! Cisco takes the lead on this one.
Ok here is another fine three-way woo from our webcam. Mom spies on
us when she is at work and always catches us in action. Note: Cisco
started this woo again, not me. You know what it is... he wants to
steal my bed - 2 minutes later he riled me up and got
me off the bed and -- and he took it!
Smart old guy, that Cisco.
This is the cutest picture of our 3 boys seatbelted in the back of the jeep. Max's tail is over Paco's nose and resting against Cisco's back leg. What sweet brothers!
That doesn't mean he doesn't still have his silly moments like
playing with his favorite toy, "Dr Destructo" - he got this toy
for graduating obedience class and he just loves to take it
out the dog door and toss it around in the snow outside. It is
