I realized that in yesterday’s post, I failed to show you John’s excellent 4th of July outfit….
… or Maxwell’s afternoon “Good Ship Maxwell” imitation …
(Um. Where are his legs?)
… or how good a dog he was during the parade.
I should say this: Max almost never barks intentionally. We hear him yipping in his dreams now and again, and once while awake he barked at a noise in the middle of the night, and once he barked excitedly at some horses – and that’s it. Two intentional barks in his whole 3.5 year life with us. So it’s clear that horses are rated very high in his excitability index, and we were a little nervous about taking him to a parade full of horses – but he was quiet and calm the entire 2 hours, horses, sirens, kids and all. Good dog, Maxwell!
