Comfort

Max is a sneaky little blanket thief. Throughout this past winter, I documented every case I could of his diabolical plans to horde all the blankets in the house. Then, I looked back over the past 5 years to see just how bad it has always been. Here is what I found.

It started way back, when I was much nicer and let Max on the couch, when I didn’t realize just how much he was taking advantage of that bougie life.

“If comfort is an art, call me Claws Maxet. For I will certainly leave my impression in this landscape.”

“A little privacy please. Jeez dad.”

“Heads…

…Or tails. Either way you toss it is a win for me.”

“Don’t hate. If it works, it works. And this right here works.”

Then, I realized his behavior was bleeding over to sleepovers with his friends, and with blankets that were probably not his.

“Hey, I let him have the bones so I could have the blanket! Ok, now I want the bones too.”

Then, we got a new resident at our house, who also was partial to blankets. That shook things up, but not for too long.

“What’s this baby doing on this blanket!?”

“Ok, ok, I will share…for now…”

“Ha ha ha. Victory is mine. I am still king of blankets!”

“And now I extend my reign. You leave dirty clothes and towels on the floor? They are now my blankets.”

“This pillow will make a fine addition to my blanket collection.”

“I know…It’s not a blanket, but I claim it. It is flat and soft and close enough.”

“Leg is the new blanket.”

What can I say? This dog likes blankets. And that doesn’t even count the one I specifically laid out for him in our bedroom that he now uses almost every night, or many others of which I did not get a picture.

Thank you Max for enjoying the comforts of life and for reminding me of the value of a good, trusty blanket.

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!

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.

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.
