Today is Maxxamillions 11'th birthday. It seems like yesterday that this beautiful loving puppy boy came into our lives. We can't imagine him not being in our lives and around the house. Maxxamillion's surgery a few months ago was a lesson on how to really appreciate your loved ones every moment, for tomorrow is not promised us! Today Maxxamillion was spoiled like always, we made him a special batch of his favorite low-cal oatmeal dog bisquits that we make for him. He got gifts and cards from friends and family. We got him a football shaped pillow and some stuffed toys. He loves the pillow a lot, as for the stuffed animals he did what he does to all stuffed animal toys, pull off the eyes. He continues to recooperate each day and we are very grateful to have him with us today. Happy Birthday Maxxamillion!!!! and many many more.
Love Mom & Pop.

I am happy to say Maxxamillion is doing much better each day. He is still a little stiff on his his hind legs from his arthritis but continues to inprove daily
He continues to get some rehab and short walks around our neighborhood daily. On Saturday he finally went back to his favorite park (Portage Park) which he went to daily for ten years.
We could see the joy in his face and tail wagging high when we pulled up to Portage Park. He got up from his seat with out any hesitation at all. And when we opened the truck door, out came Maxxamillion down his ramp and ready to walk his park again. Oh what happiness we felt to see him in the park again. He marked every spot he could until he had no more. His running days are over but we are so happy he is able to walk around fine. So far he has survived the surgery and the removal of a six pound tumor. We are blessed to have such a wonderful puppy boy. We love You Maxxamillion, Mom & Pop
