Today, 1st. October 2008, double celebrations fill the air in our home!
Our darling Maxi is 4 years old and it is also our third wonderful years of loving companionship with him.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, MAXI BOY
MAY GOD BLESS YOU WITH GOOD HEALTH,
HAPPINESS AND JOY EVERYDAY,
AND MANY MORE WONDERFUL YEARS WITH US!
Here is sharing some shots of him taken recently to celebrate the occasion.
Maxi is a cross-bred miniature pinscher, a toy breed weighing about 6 kg with a height of about 30.5cm (12 in) at the highest point of the withers. Hehe…a little overweight as the vet informed us that he should be around 5 kg. If that is all he usually does as seen in the photo collage above (sunbathing, relaxing and laying on his back begging to be stroked), he sure is going to gain more weight! ;)
Charming and playful, Maxi by nature is very inquisitive, agile and so alert.
Any slight noise or movement will spring him into action, especially his ears will ever so often stand upright. Hehe…countless times a day, probably tens of hundreds? :D
A very lovable and adorable pet with boundless energy, Maxi is frequently seen on the move around his kingdom, the backyard garden where he resides, either chasing and barking at any stray cats that come so often prowling behind or any strangers walking by.
This is how he gets his exercises, but of course, all within the fenced area of our backyard. He absolutely detests the cats, and his incessant loud and sharp barks have taught them to walk along the drains beneath, smartly out of his sight. Even birds perched on our fruit trees or plams riles him. So territorial!
Standing on tippy toes is another of his favorite posture! We just love to see him standing tall like this which he usually does when waiting to be fed or expecting something or anything edible.
Haha, he gets a lot of teasing from me in this area. So greedy, seems hungry all the time!
He really warms our hearts and bring sunshine to our days with his cheerful and adoring ways. Such a marvelous playmate and companion in our golden years.
MUCH THANKS, DEAREST BOY! WE LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH!
WE PRAISE AND THANK YOU LORD, FOR THIS WONDERFUL GIFT OF MAXI!
