Smile

Either Max is a naturally happy dog, or he has an uncanny ability to smile for the camera. I find his goofy smiles pretty infectious, and I hope you do to.

Of course, Max has the golden standard of smiles.

He’s no rock-weiler, but he charms all the fans with that (s)waggin’ smile.

Sweet dreams are made of…cheese!

But sometimes, his smiles are pawsitively creepy…

Clap along if you feel like a room without a ruff ruff!

Sometimes, his smile is a little too fur-rocious,

But he’s never hesitant to turn that frown upside down.

…mutt as well have a good time!

Must. Max-imize. Smiles.

And at the end of the day, he’s always looking quite fetching.

Thank you Max for your smiles – they brighten my day. I hope you keep smiling and bringing more and more joy to this world, at least until the day we can all smile as authentically as you.

P.S. This also pairs nicely with Jay-Z’s “Smile”, for those who have Tidal or other access to it.

Max’s All You Need To Know Guide To Prepping That Beach Bod

Spring is here, and that means it’s time for Max’s all you need to know guide for preparing to rock that beach bod. I know a quarter of the country was snowed in last week, but we live in Texas and its already 90 degrees here. So, shed that winter garb and follow these simple steps to start looking as hott as Max.

First, let’s all stretch those mutt-scles back out after a long winters nap.

You may want to take up hairy yoga too. It’s like hot yoga only you get an extra layer of hair all over anytime you hit the mat. Plus, I hear downward dog provides a refreshing face lick.

Once you’re good and limber it’s time to PUP IT UP!

Summer is coming.

You may be tired, but this is no time to paws. Remember: Do or do not, there is no try.

Also, ball is life.

Don’t overdo it, though. Dog tired is a thing. And it is fur real. It’s a fur real thing.

And get plenty of Vitamin D (it stands for dog).

By this point, you’ve probably worked up quite a pant. It may be time to really wash behind those ears.

Finally, it’s all about the golden vibe and accessories. They make looking good look good.

IMG_3614

But all in all, while Max is for healthy living, he has definitely taught me that first and foremost you should know you are inherently beautiful.

Thank you Max, for your foolproof guide to the perfect beach bod. But thank you most for reminding me that any bod is a beach bod – it just has to be on the beach. And even if a body is not on the beach, it is still beautiful.

Happy Halloween or A Dog of Many Hats

Max is a dog of many hats…at least on Halloween!

IMG_1978

Alright grasshopper, wax on…wax off.

IMG_1979

Here I come to save the day!!!!!

IMG_1986

It’s elementary…

IMG_1983

Trick arrrrrrrrrrr treat!

IMG_1987

Git along little dogies.

IMG_1984

No sweat!

Alright, enough of your shenanigans!

And through all those different personas, Max is still Max – a goofy, fun dog. He has taught me that no matter how many hats I may find myself wearing, I can still be me – a goofy, fun human. And as fun as the hats are, they don’t give him any more meaning. That meaning is intrinsic and flows out of him through all the different roles.

So thank you Max for making Halloween even more fun and enjoyable. And thank you for teaching me that no matter what array of hats we may find ourselves wearing, we are still intrinsically valuable.
