Hello Everybody and welcome to Monday with Max!
Since I only have one day a week of my own on Maggie's blog, today is a 3 part post so please get comfortable,
I have a lot to say today.
A Get Well Card From Madi and her Mom
Imagine my surprise when my mom said I got a card addressed to me and only me in the mail.
Mom, are you sure this letter is just for me,
after all, Maggie Mae is a judge in Mango Minster 2012 so maybe, dare I say, this letter is for "da Judge" and it contains a bribe for her?
Well I am mistaken, it is for me
and it's from the gorgeous Madi and her sweet Momma C!
Mom, will you please open it for me?
What a nice card!
Mom, look it is personalized just for me AND Madi's sweet mom wrote me a note too!
This is so wonderful mom, I will save this card forever.
Thank you so much Madi and Momma C.
Max vs The Underwater Treadmill
Mom, dad and Maggie Mae continue to take good care of me. I am trying my best not to run, jump or play so my leg will heal itself and I won't have to have surgery.
Anyway, as some of you know, last week I had an appointment to go see Dr. L and "meet" the underwater treadmill.
Well, unfortunately our meeting did not go as well as we had hoped.
(Sorry Mango I am not a water loving dude like you are my friend)
Wait a minute!
You want me to do what when I get in there?
So far not so good!
Well, Dr. L does have some treats in her hand so maybe I will go in there and investigate this strange looking box she is in...
Yummy noms Dr. L, I will go in just a little further...
OK Dr. L, keep feeding me and I will pretend I don't notice the water
RUSHING IN AROUND ME!
Whoa Lady, you turned me around pretty fast, so does this mean it is time to get out of this water tomb?
By the way nice wading boots you got on there...Cabela's?
I AM NOT HAVING FUN HERE!
To add insult to injury mom has posted a short video of me in the water torture chamber!
The bad news is I did not "take to the water" as mom and Dr. L would have liked me to so I am not going to continue with this type of therapy.
The good news is what mom, dad and Maggie Mae have been doing with me and for me the past 4 weeks has helped me a lot!
Dr. L said that I have no swelling in my leg at all anymore AND I am not favoring my leg when I use it. So now I can run a little more (still on leash) AND I can start going up and down stairs and hills(still on leash)to help strengthen my leg.
My anti-inflammatory medicine has been cut back too. I go back to see Dr. B(the surgeon) in two weeks so if he gives me the all clear I am good to go again.
I sure hope he clears me because I miss playing with my sister.
PS I have saved the best for last!
(ooh, I am a little nervous)
The Question For Puddles
My Dear Puddles,
I e-mailed your mom a little while ago and asked her if you had a special someone in your life and she said no, so here goes...
We haven't known each other for very long,
but ever since I laid eyes on you...
I have wanted to tell you this...
and ask you this...
Would you be my girlfriend?
Yours if you will have me,
