The Bakers accepted Maximilian into their clan this past summer. He has since made quite the impression on each member of his family. What better way to celebrate this joyous holiday that with a happy ending update from his new family.

We adopted Max at the end of August. He joins his BT brother Butterbean, Mom, Dad, and human brother, Ethan. He was a little pushy at first with both brothers, but has since calmed down nicely with Ethan. He rules Butterbean, poor guy. Max is so much smaller than Butterbean but can push him around-no problem! They have a blast running the BT 500 in our backyard... This little dog of ours has 3 passions, in this particular order: 1. Food 2. Squirrels 3. A warm body to curl up next to. I guess the most surprising thing that has come out of our adopting Max is the close connection between him and Ethan. They are kindred spirits those two. Where you see one, you see the other. They get into loads of trouble together! When I pick Ethan up from daycare he calls for "Mack". Every day I have to explain that Max is at home. Once inside, Ethan runs for Max's kennel and gets kisses through the door. We got Max as a companion for Butterbean, but it ended up that Ethan has dog that he adores and that he can grow up with. It doesn't get any better than this.

He's such a little scamp... He is such a clown! This will be his first Christmas with us. St. Nicholas will be bringing him many treats for Christmas this year.
