Hi Hi - I KNOW - we haven't been around much. Mom has been busy with her little home business (she is saving for Denny's knee surgery) and has also had some sickies to deal with and my jippy foot has got so bad I have trouble walking much now so we don't get out and about as much as we did - but we are still here and now we have an extra buddy to play with. Meet Max - he is a boxer/mastiff mix and belongs to my human sister Elise (dad's daughter) and her Fiancee Tara. They have moved to Florida and are staying with us until they find an apartment. Now as you can see Max or Maxi-Moo-Moo as his Moms call him (gawoof gawoof) is one BIG boy. The first week he was here we did have some disagreements. I had to tell him I was the oldest dog and therefore the boss - of coarse he thought being bigger made him the boss - but we got it sorted out and now we getting along fine. Denny basically ignores Max and just stays out of his way but he still a little scared of Elise and Tara although the last couple of days he has allowed them them to pat him. We are sorry we haven't been visiting you all - we think of you often and do read your posts we just don't comment much. Hopefully when Denny has his surgery things will be a little easier.
