Max, my brother!

I am one of 15 puppies, remember?

Well,  I am still in touch with three of my brothers and sisters.

One of them in particular I see very often. He lives only 15kms away from where I live, so we see each other quite often. His name is Max.

Max is a wonderful boy. He has a long list of women at his paws. But sadly for him, he still has not been allowed to date any of them…. not yet…. 😉

Max is living in a very happy family, and his best friends are the human’s pups… see how great they are too… :

They are Pietro and Simone! They are so good in playing… Max is so lucky… they play so much with him… they play with balls, they play tug-o-war … they are brilliant and Max is always very gentle with them… Max is supposed to be sleeping in his bed… In reality he normally sleeps next to Pietro’s bed!!!!

Yes because Pietro is the trainer… Oh yes, you heard right… they are preparing themselves for obidience competitions… My human said she will take me to see them… but I think it is better if I do not go… or Max will start playing with me instead of paying attention to the commands!!!

Oh yes because we are really good at playing together. We play for hours and the next day we are completely run out of energies.. we sleep all day to recover… Can you see how much slobber we have on each other in the above picture? It means we had lots of fun!!!

Here you can see us in action (it is short, sorry, plus my human still has to learn a lot about videos):

He is a man, but I do not care… I am not scared of him…

I am a fighter …. and he is a gentleman 🙂

I do not know why but Max has a particular interest in my ears. He keeps on licking them 😦 One minute is ok, two minutes I can stand it… but more … oh Max please stop!!!! But there is no way… 😉

So, you know, I would not like to have Max running for my ears instead of doing his competion!!! Here we are together – what do you say – are we alike? We never leave each other when we are together, always near, always playing!!!

But we are also very polite… we never crush anything… we stop (up to now…) before bumping into things or humans… See how we can wait politely while humans are chatting and eating without giving us anything??? (aren’t they cruel to us??? :()

We can even respond to commands… together:

Mum and Dad did a real good job with us, didn’t they? 😛

    CUTE! You and Max are too cute together! That’s great you’ve kept in contact with some of your siblings!
    I’ve kept in close contact with one of Darwin’s brothers and they usually see each other once a week (not now while she’s getting her back fixed up). And for their first birthday I organized a reunion for as many of the puppies as I could contact. It was great!

    Oh Lucille, we love your brother Max. Thunder’s name was Max before he came to live with us. He and Ciara are half siblings, they have the same father. They seem to be so much closer to each other than with Phantom. We think you both look so much alike, except for the markings on the face. We hope you can stay in touch for many years to come.

  3. You and Max look like you have a fantastic time together 🙂 When we play together we get very slobbery as well, hehe!

    This is a reply to your previous post about grooming – don’t worry, having your nails clipped isn’t that bad…we learnt all about them when we were little. I (Jasper) was very naughty when learning about clippers. I would have tantrums, cry as though I was being hurt, struggle, Laura said I was the biggest baby. I thing we might post about nail clipping, I(lexi) love it :p hehe

    Licks and lots of slobber,

  4. Oh wow – Lucille – you and Max could be twins! You look so alike!! Except that you don’t have a white stripe on your face (and of course, you are “prettier” as a girl!) – it is wonderful to see you two playing together. Slobber? Yes, I know all about slobber – ha! ha! Anybody who plays with me always gets COVERED in slobber everywhere…

    My goodness, you play so nice and gently…my human says she wishes I could be more like you…I play RRRRRRRROUGH!!! That is why it is so hard to find playmates for me – because a lot of doggies just can’t handle me – I need a very confident doggie with a similar rough play style, otherwise they get scared of me. I like to jump and wrestle and use my paws a lot – and of course, run around doing zoomies!! 😀

    I thought that video is great! What does your human use to edit your videos? My human uses Windows Movie Maker which comes free with Windows on a PC and it’s really easy to use and has lots of features – all my videos are made with that. She can send your human more info in a email if you like?

    About the Rally-O – you know, you can just set up a course yourself! My human found a website with all the information and sample “signs” which you can print out – I will tell her to email the info to you. And you already have a classmate: Max! Since he is also well-trained, you could try a Rally-O class together! I’m sure you would enjoy it – and who knows, maybe other doggies will hear about it and come and join you then you can have your own little Rally-O class! That garden looks pretty big in your video – you could set up a course there. I think it’s always nice to do some training with your friends, as well as just playing.

    Anyway, I will tell my human to email all these things to you!

      ciao, sono la mamma di max e sono molto felice di vedere il mio bimbo su questo bellissimo blog. io e la mamma di lucille siamo diventate amiche ed è una cosa bellissima perchè sia lei che Mario sono veramente persone speciali.
      il mio alano è, dopo mio marito e i miei figli, la cosa più preziosa che ho, se avessi conosciuto prima l’alano come razza lo avrei sicuramente preso prima. a casa nostra è uno di noi e ci da tutto se stesso tutti i giorni, spero che anche lui sia felice con noi. nicoletta mi ha fatto conoscere Honey e devo dire che a vederla sempbra proprio fantastica.

  5. Oh, I forgot to say – it is wonderful that both you and Max are so well-trained and well-behaved – that is a lovely picture of you two lying nicely while the humans are getting food…it is a testament to the hard work and commitment of your humans! 🙂

    Aw, that ear licking is sometimes meaning that he knows you are the boss dog. I know how you gals are.

    Hey! Momma makes me practice my obedience sometimes while PeeWee runs around all cracker dog. She says it is good for my attentions skills so you go ahead and watch Max in his competition.


  7. Hi Lucille,

    Let me introduce myself to you…my name is Kasha and my friend Honey told me about this lovely young lady Dane from Italy that I should go and say hello to so hello Lucille. I’m from the suburbs of Chicago and I’m 8 years old so I’m a senior dane. Your blog is very nice and you are a beautiful Dane. I can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. My mom says she’s never been to Italy but it sure looks lovely.

    What fun you get to see your fur brother and have play dates with him.

    Max loves to clean your ears, watch out for me, I love to clean my Pug brothers’ ears too, but nobody does it to me, sob! sob!
