Since posting last time Max has been out on a couple of extended breaks with us. He's back in kennels for a couple of days smiley-sad010.gif but will be back with us at the weekend.

Max is such a fun dog - he's not massively into long walks but he adores running around the garden (especially getting chased). When he plays he bounces rather than runs - we think he's a bit like Tigger (see video later). He's beginning to get used to more and more sounds. The dustmen came by the other day banging and crashing (which would normally have caused him a bit of alarm) but this time he didn't react at all. Good job Max! There are still some noises that he's unfamiliar with but he's learning day by day.

He loves trips to the outside cafe at the local garden centre and is impeccably behaved. He doesn't bother you for food and will just lay down and relax while you eat and drink.

I've mentioned it before but Max's fur is soft and glossy. And the secret is revealed.....vitamin D! Max loves the sun, he seeks out its' rays outside and also indoors (see pictures below). Our previous dog never liked laying outside at all but Max will go outside and lay down for 10 minutes, get up and come inside to cool off, and then go back out again.

Oh I think I mentioned it before but Max loves cuddles!!

A few videos for anyone interested in Max. There's one of him bouncing around the garden, one of him drinking from the hosepipe (once he realised he didn't need to attack the water!), and one showing him having his after bath blow dry (as long as you don't blow the hairdryer directly in his face he likes it).

Wonderful write ups, wonderful dog, wonderful photos/videos.....have to say - wonderful garden too - not surprising he looks so happy 0093.gif !! What an adorable, handsome, gorgeous dog Max is - so compact, cheeky, well rounded (personality...not suggesting he is a chubster!) and all round superstar. I love his face and those fantastic ears - utterly gorgeous. Some lucky human is going to strike gold when they find this boy....lets hope it happens soon love4.gif

Max has been enjoying the spell of fine weather with us for the last 10 days or so. When we first brought him out of kennels he seemed quite overwhelmed with the noises of the outside world. As time has gone on he is slowly becoming desensitised to most of them. He still has the odd moment e.g. there were a few claps of thunder last night and they frightened him a bit.

For everything else he has been enjoying some short to medium walks. He doesn't need, or want, long walks and seems to get most enjoyment from a garden where he can sun himself, play with his human friends, bark at / chase away anything from pigeons, squirrels and cats. He likes trips to the garden centre cafe, relaxes really well in the pub garden near my Dad's house, and sits beautifully outside a cafe in a busy High Street.

For his forever home, which we hope comes his way soon, he likes a relaxed and settled routine and to spend time with his human friends. He would suit people who have the time on their hands to spend it with.

I'll add some pictures one at a time. I seem to be having some trouble uploading them in one go (probably my ineptitude)!
