most of you know our dog maxie. she used to rule the roost.....then those shrieking lil' varmints came along. she has always been a sweet, mild natured dog but has always been a bit nervous. now that the house has been taken over by miniature sized hooligans, maxie pretty much follows me around the house from room to room, consistently under foot. poor thing hardly gets to go on walks anymore, so it was nice to see her in the back yard with us one day, just hanging out & relaxing.
