M is for Max (the Puppy) and Mom

Click to see theme
Max is my brother's brand new puppy. He's now almost three months old, but he was about two months when my brother first got him. My brother had an unexpected trip only two weeks after he got Max, so I agreed to take care of him for 10 days. Well, then he had another unexpected event come up, and he had to bring Max two days early, and he didn't know until the day he had to bring him! I was just setting things up and getting my head around it, but had to deal with having a brand new puppy for 12 days before I was ready.

It was extremely stressful, but I really love the little guy. My cats were scared to death of him, and he would try to chase them when he spotted them. I made a deal with them though, and I never went back on it: I kept them safe from the puppy. My dog Lulu was also very jealous, but they began playing tug-o-war together, and Lulu learned to tolerate him pretty well. I love Max so much, but I was very happy to see him get insanely happy to see his papa yesterday, and to send him home where he's got his own yard, and someone much better equipped to training a baby boy. And I'm a very happy Auntie Krissy!
This is common for Max. He goes crazy, but once he's had enough, he just stops and rests mid-play.
I've also made this gif available on this Tumblr post.
M is also about my #Mom. She doesn't like to share photos of herself online, so I can't gif her. What I can say is that she has become my best friend now that I'm older. We make a great team when we work together, and we have a great time when we hang out for "Girls' Day Out" every three weeks. She's just the best!
I also used to love #MexicanJumpingBeans as a kid:
My M for last year was "#Mama #MissKitty #Madness":


  1. Can't help but love a puppy or a kitten, can you?

    1. Definitely. I love them all! :) Thanks for stopping by again!

  2. I love my daughter but I don't love puppies. I have had to take over the care of many pets as my children lost interest and I find them too much work for the serious lack of reward. At least with kids I can have a conversation. Maybe if I learned to speak dog or cat it would have been better. For some odd reason the darned things like me? I just don't get it.


    1. If you're kind to them they will love you, even if you're not a fan. Pets always have a way of reflecting the treatment you give them, so I'm sure you have done a great job despite your feelings, which is very kind. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. puppies are fun - until you foster three - that sort of takes the fun out of it.
    Love the puppy video though!
    Sharing some A to Z love ~

    1. Thank you, and thanks for stopping by! I'm enjoying your posts as well, but I just don't see any way to comment on them.

  4. Puppies are fun, especially when they're someone elses. I'm a cat lover all the way. My cats would be terrified of dogs too, but this new kitten I have might play with him.
