|Max with his portrait|
Max was right in the middle of all of it! Including a chase around the coffee table. He even took a flying leap over a dog bed!
I got in on the wrestling Match and Max pounced on my back, head butted me and even crouched down with his butt up in the air, front paws on the ground and play snapped and growled at me while he was wagging his tail! His spirits are amazing! I just can't help but smile at him!
One thing I keep finding myself doing is worrying.. a lot! I find myself always looking for signs that could mean something is wrong, or something is getting worse. I know I need to look for these signs but it is really wearing on me and I feel like I've been doing it for years... after talking with someone else who also has a dog dealing with the same stuff.. I realized I have been doing this for a LONG time! At least the last 3-4 years with one dog or cat or another. I feel like I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop.. and as much as I try to think that I need to live in the here and now, like Max is doing, I think I may need some re-training! I think I might be about 4 years out of practice.
I was watching TV the other night, a show on OWN, and someone said something that stood out to me.
