Max is either clueless, curious, creative, or comedic. Whichever is the case, I love him very much, but I often look around the house and find him in some rather strange situations. I look and laugh, then he notices and reflects the joy I express. I never know what is going on in his head in these moments, but appreciate it all the same.
Here are some of my favorites:
How did you even get in that pawsition?!
I guess it’s just a dog-hug-coffee-table kind of world now…
Should he stay or should he go now?
Is he pawndering the art or retrieving some distant memory?
Whatever is going on here, Max certainly chewses his own style and path.
Max, are you comfurtable enough?
Max, are you comfurtable at all?
Max…how is that comfutable?!
I see, I see, you’re a yoga mutt…clever.
Now that is a real downward dog…
Whatever is going on, Max certainly does his own thing. Maybe he is all four – curious, clueless, creative, and comedic, or maybe he’s just a cool, confusing canine. Regardless, I am sure he has also looked over to me at times and wondered, “What is going on with him?” I know I too have my clueless, curious, creative, and comedic moments too, intentional or not. And I’m grateful that Max still sees the best in me anyway.
So thank you Max for being yourself and bringing some (confusing) joy to my life. You do you and I’ll keep wondering.
