Max, the Dog Stamp

My friend Kelly said I need to start blogging again. I'm not sure people read blogs but she's pretty smart so I will get on board with this again! In trying to decide what to write about I thought I'd address one of my most often asked questions. What is the dog stamp's name?

Well, lets start at the beginning. Meet Jack. Jack is not the dog stamp but he is our dog who was once very content at being the "only child." He is a cock-a-poo, a very large cock-a-poo. He is always mistaken for a doodle but no, he is not a doodle, he was supposed to be my sweet little lap dog. And that's exactly how he was a lap dog. And then he grew, and grew and grew. Someone probably neglected to tell us that one of the parents was most likely a standard poodle.

As I said, he was very content and then one day, Father's Day to be exact, Max came to us. Yes, my son brought Max over that day and said he was a stray and needed a home. And oh yeah, he eats phones. Max is some sort of terrier, high strung and high energy. He isn't that cute but he's sweet, to me that is. My husband calls him a mosquito because he's well, annoying and doesn't leave you alone. I think I'm the only person who likes Max. He is very sweet, always minds and is always happy. Jack doesn't much like Max and pretty much ignores him. When Max is getting attention, Jack will come push him out of the way and hog all the attention for himself. And Max tries to get back in on the pets and hugs, his tail wagging the whole time. He can be pushed, have his treats stolen and his tail still wags!

Max loves going to dog beach in Huntington Beach and then going to breakfast at The Park Bench because he gets scrambled eggs and bacon off the dog menu. He loves getting the mail, growls at most people, hates the wiener dog next door and loves freshly cooked bacon. And that my friends is who the dog stamp is named after.

Max, he's not all that cute and it's hard to get a good picture because he moves too much!
