Life with Maximus
I always tell my little guy to “never leave me,” knowing that one day he will and I will have to tell him it is ok to do that. When they say dogs come into your life sometimes when you need them the most, they are not kidding. The hardest few years of my life were my first few years I had Max. I felt the most lonely, the most scared, the most unsure about my life path and I probably cried the most in those few years than I have my whole life… times 10. This dog was meant to join me as my little baby and create a mini support system that I desperately needed in my home on an everyday kind of basis.
I didn’t buy him, I didn’t adopt him, I kind of inherited him from a very short and unsuccessful relationship. I entered in to being his caretaker and his Mommy sort of unknowingly but it’s one of the best things that has ever happened to me. A dog can get you out of bed when you don’t want to and make you go outside and be a part of the world because he needs his exercise, bathroom breaks, and to be fed. Having a dog really helps with getting the fuck over yourself as well. We all get caught up and sometimes wallow in our own petty crap for far too long, but just like having a kid puts things in to perspective for some, having a dog can do that as well. I 🖤 doggies! I love Maximus!
