Meet Max!

On the "tail" of the weekend thought, I'd like to introduce the world to the newest member of the Mullis family. This is Max. He is a ten-month-old Catahoula Leopard dog we adopted from the Humane Society last weekend. I used Jake's picture in the last post. We lost him two and a half years ago, and it's taken me this long to finally feel good about getting a new dog.

Max was a stray the humane society picked up. He was adopted by a family who, sadly, lost their home in this tough economic situation and Max was returned to the society. Lucky for us, we found him and have brought him home to become our newest best friend!

The boys are crazy about him, and he seems to be settling in quite well. We were worried when we had to return to the Humane Society with him on Thursday to have his microchip inserted; we were afraid he would think we were returning him. Happily, he got so much attention from all the other dog lovers there as we waited that he was distracted enough that he seemed to suffer no ill effects. We're looking forward to a long happy time together with Max!

Congratulations on your newest addition! He's such a cute puppy. Will he get any bigger? I bet your boys are just loving him!
