Meet Max Gunner

I just wanted to formally introduce our new addition Max. He is a field retriever from Ambertrail in Ontario. A little ball of energy with a big personality and attitude. I specifically wanted the most energetic, dominant, male pup out of the 2 litters - 11 male pups in all. Mike Ducross the breeder, described him as a 'wildman' and a week and a half in, I see nothing to suggest he was incorrect in that assessment. Max is a character and I am hoping to get him to follow in Ax's paw prints and become a disc dog. Whether or not I'm successful remains to be seen, but at least he should mature into a dog with the physicality and drive necessary to do so. Time will tell...

RIP AWESOME Axl, you took part of me with you when you left. ALWAYS missed, NEVER forgotten. You were a ROCK STAR and the best friend I ever had.

YEAH! Max has his own thread :-) I did not know you had a cat! Especially love the sleeping Max picture and Max in the sock picture.

Here's to new adventures!

Max has attitude! SO happy he has his own thread. Got a kick out of him "ignoring" the cat!

Yeah, I have a cat too. Had her since before even Axl. She'll be turning 10 next month. She is a very kind docile girl, quite dog like, and she puts up with a lot of nonsense from Puffy, Jax, and now little Max. She will hiss and swat with her claws in when they get too annoying.

Funniest was her relationship with Ax. He NEVER bothered or even took much notice of her existence at all. She loved him and was always looking to get his attention, but he remained completely aloof as though she was beneath him. She would wait until he was asleep and come snuggle with him. He'd open one eye, you didn't slip anything by his acute senses, and grudgingly tolerate it most times.

The pic where Max is sleeping was taken the first night we had him. He tends to expend his energy in frantic bursts and when he passes out, that's it until he recharges again. My daughters arranged the 'stocking stuffer' pic.


RIP AWESOME Axl, you took part of me with you when you left. ALWAYS missed, NEVER forgotten. You were a ROCK STAR and the best friend I ever had.

It's about time Max got his own thread. It'll be fascinating to see how your little wildman grows up. As it is, his personality shines with every post you write. Keep up the pictures, please!
