Today's a special day here at our house. We're celebrating our Max' 9th birthday.
We weren't there when he arrived. There weren't any breeders assisting the birth. His file said he was found with his six siblings and one-year-old mother near Tulare, California. They were all rescued and brought down here to San Diego when he was just a few days old.
My son and I were looking for a new puppy and took a drive up to the Helen Woodward center when Max was about 8 weeks old. We walked by a few very cute puppies and then we saw our Max. He came right out to greet us to let us know we were the right family he deserved. It didn't take us long to know he was going to be part of our family ~ The good staff at the animal center requested to meet with Max' new dad before he could leave. It didn't take my husband long either to fall for this little guy.
He's definitely our protector, although we must accompany him outside at all times. He's a careful guardian of our home, unless it's windy ~ then he hides in our closets. He helps us all maintain our waistlines by sharing our snacks. But he never shares his own with us. What's ours is his and what's his is his.
Max is definitely one of the smartest dogs I've ever seen. And yes, I would say that even if he wasn't my Max. He creates ways to make us laugh all on his own. We can ask him to retrieve about a hundred items by name and he doesn't miss. As you can see, he can be found checking out the Trevo website when left open:
Last winter we took Max up to Mammoth to see the mountains and some snow. He loved it, and enjoyed the coat immensely.
Always a trusty assistant in the kitchen, Max is either helping at the stove or resting precisely where we need to step. Always. And we have learned he does not want any avocados ~ ever.
So what is this tribute doing on the Trevo Time blog? It's as simple as this. Max was a shelter dog. A mix of Corgi and German Shepherd as best we can determine. He could easily have been left to fend for himself in the woods near Tulare never knowing love, a family or that the chicken treats from Costco are his favorite thing in the world.
