This is Max. A Chocolate Labrador. Soon to be 5 years of age. He came into our lives in the year 2009 and have changed how we look at animals and especially ourselves.. He taught us patience, understanding and the ability to love ourselves even better.
Growing up, he was a walking disaster. Chewing anything in his path but we know this would happened. We took it with more than a pinch of salt because sometimes it was an expensive shoe or a cabinet or a whole chunk of a door. He reminded us, we were once like him as a child.
He is always there when we need him. A lick on the face, a paw on your hand, a snuggle, a silence look that says, “I am here for you’. He never falter or gave up on us and we made him a promise never to do so.
His life span is short. Ours varies. He is a dog. He is family.
He has his bad habits but don’t we all?
