i officially adopted max

as of a few hours ago i own max. he did great on his first night last night. i already caved and let him on furniture. no people food…yet. he has a nice dog bed that he sleeps in at night (his owner turned that in when she turned him in). i took him on a six mile run this morning – or rather he took me – and when we got back he picked up one of his toys and acted like he wanted to play fetch. so much for trying to make him tired! i think i’m going to really enjoy having max. he will definitely keep me active!

max makes himself at home

i discovered stroopwafels at the local natural foods store! (unfortunately stroopwafels are not natural). i decided to splurge on them today. they don't taste quite the same as the ones i had in the netherlands, but they are still rather tasty.
