Monday Listicles

What a week!

May I quickly say thank you for all the love, wonderful comments and making us feel very special indeed. I never intended for this to happen and it has been both nice and odd. In the wake of all this attention boys have been receiving I decided to write today’s listicle about them. As you may remember I suggested we write 10 CHAPTERS IN MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Instead I will write ten from Big M’s point of view. Just guessing of course, he is a dog after all. So it is more of a biography…

Next week let’s do a list about TOP 10 WAYS TO SPEND 30 MINUTES .

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

    Just noticed that Max hasn’t any gray. How lucky he is. Such a pretty black coat.

    That is one big dog! I love your take on this because it’s not just his memoir, but your family’s memoir as well!

    Oh Stasha, these were wonderful! That dog just makes me want to hug him. Well, except when he’s wet. And slobbery. But I LOVED the pics of him with the horses!

    It always warms my heart when I see your pictures! We have a lab/pitt mix who is a rescue dog and to see your love for your 4 legged friend is awesome! The pictures create memories of him looking like a cuddler, lover, superhero, character, funny guy and best friend! Can’t wait to see what more adventures you all get into. Take care. :) <3

    I absolutely LOVE your top 10 list from the dog’s point of view. I am a HUGE dog lover, and your pics just melt my heart. What a handsome young pup your dog was – and looks like an extremely soft and protective companion for your boy. Really cool about the news shoutout that your photos received!
