Our newest family member

Say "Hello!" to Max, a 9-month-old Border Collie mix we adopted this evening. He's an awesome boy who can sit and shake. He's very patient with The Pea and could care less about the cat. All in all, just the best puppeh ever.

Congratulations! He looks like the best puppeh ever!

Pea looks ready for hours of catch.

And, adopting a dog is the best way to go!

Robin said...

Hello Max and Welcome! Congrats, what a great way to grow your little family.

PS - dogs playing fetch in the snow with snowballs = hours of hilarity

YAY! And hello handsome Mr. Max!

Alex came from a rural shelter down by St. Louis, and for the last three years there hasn't been a single day I haven't thanked the stars we took a chance and drove 4 hours across Missouri to meet him.

Well done Miss!

So exciting, who knew yesterday when we discussed adopting pound puppies that you would find the right one so soon!

Anita Davis said...

Hello, Max!!

Debi said...

Yeah - congratulations! And nice - he matches the cat...(ie black cat, black dog). :)

He is very handsome.

Congrats! Our dog, Buddy, is a rescue pup, part collie, we think, and the best dog ever. So happy and easygoing. Almost like he knows he scored. But we really scored as he is the best. Welcome Max!

I just let out a squeal as I read this - I'm so dog-crazy. Congratulations to you and welcome, Max! He's gorgeous!

I've heard Border Collies are really smart. We already know Max is super cute. Congrats~

My dog is a rescue, too. Bless your heart! Adopting a dog is awesome. I sometimes want to just snuggle my furry friend all day.

Max looks really smart and sweet! Hope all goes smoothly in the transition time!

Nothing better than adopting a needy pet, they are so open to love! Good for the soul!

Kate said...

Oh, he's adorable! What a sweet, handsome boy! I think a dog makes a home complete. I'm so glad he's a rescue -- you did a great thing. How does your ole Black Magic feel about Max?

Raina Cox said...

Susie - Magic is going to need kitteh Xanax, Max keeps trying to "herd" him.

Alexis said...

Welcome Max! We are going to adopt a rescue dog in the next few weeks and I can't wait!
