Maximus Decimus Meridias

Named for the victorious general in The Gladiator who fought for his family and for justice for the people, our puppy, while he may not fight for the same causes, will be a symbol to dogs everywhere. Max is growing into a good, strong dog. He's training us to be good parents, as much as we're training him to be a good dog. He's about 4 1/2 months old and is more adorable everyday. I couldn't have asked for a better dog...he's handsome and solid, he comes when he's called, sits when instructed, chews only on his toys, is affectionate yet not overpowering (no kisses on the face!!), and an all around good dog. While he gets excited to see new faces, he responds well to the voice of Mom & Dad and obeys by calming down. He's content as long as he's near us. In fact, he follows Jeremy up and down the yard behind the lawn mower, when J is cutting the grass. He still has some things to learn, but for not being a dog person, I love him a lot. :o) We've been told he may get up to 90 pounds. He's almost 5 months old and is already weighing in at 22 pounds, up 7 pounds from 3 weeks ago! I love his curly tail and half-floppy ears! Here's some pics...
