Chess King on the Hot Dog Boat – by Max

Hi there, Max here! I am just fine thank you! Don writes a lot about what a pain in the butt I am and he’s absolutely correct. If your dog isn’t a big pain in the butt then he’s not doing his job. Just think, if you woke up tomorrow and switched places with your […]

Daylight Enslaving Time — by Max

Max here. I am just fine, thank you! Now, I’m not a dog who complains all the time, but it happened again this year. Sometime in early November Don stopped feeding us at the proper time. We three good dogs would get up at the regular breakfast time and wait patiently for breakfast. And wait. […]
