What's Wrong with Max?

Giant Malamute Dog
Max the Giant Malamute
As many of you know, I have a Giant Alaskan Malamute named Max. Something very odd has gotten into poor Max recently. At the ripe old age of 2 and 1/2, he is exhibiting some very strange behavior.

He has:

- Stopped prancing on the couch
- Stopped chewing DVDs
- Stopped peeing on the floor
- Stopped eating shoes
- Stopped scratching the carpet
- Stopped eating socks. STOPPED EATING SOCKS!!!
- Stopped destroying things. Anything. Everything. (I'm almost certain I am jinxing myself here.)

Instead he is:

- Taking orders from my 2-year-old. Sometimes even before he takes orders from me.
- Lying around like a very expensive throw rug (see photo above)
- Sniffing things and leaving them alone. Well, except for moose.
- Not eating socks. Come on, our feet don't smell any different....
- Super affectionate "good boy".
- And he doesn't step on my feet. (Too often.)

Like I said, very odd behavior. I'm almost worried. Almost.

I'm not entirely worried because he still steals my popcorn, so I know it's still "him" in that big goofy head of his. He hasn't been abducted by aliens or anything. Whew!

Like our 'whackadoodle,' Zoe, it looks like Max has gone and done the saddest thing a puppy can do — grow up.(Definitely tougher on the humans than the dogs!)
