Hi! My name is Maximus but mommy likes to call me Maxi doodle or Massimiliano, because she thinks Maximus sounds to tough(Dad was on a bit of a kick from just watching gladiator when they rescued me). I just turned 4 November 17th and had a big party with steak and even a cake! I love to hike all over with my mom and dad. We live in the Adirondacks in upstate NY, so there are plenty of mountains to clomp all over. I am allregic to bees though. One time mommy and I were playing in the yard and I got stung by a bee, I feel asleep for awhile and mom rushed me to the vet. Now I have to carry bendryl in my little doggie back pack. I love to go swimming and will just swim and swim in circles for hours, I'll jump off the dock to get the tennis ball but can't really be bothered to bring it back. I love to go camping but at night all the strange noises scare me and I shake all night. One time I got so scared that and was shaking so bad Mom let me sit in her chair by the fire and wrapped a towel around me, that helped a bunch. Guess I'm a city dog living in the country! To get to my fav spot to hike and swim, Sugar Island, we have to cross this scary metal bridge, I get to scared to cross it because its so high so Dad always has to carry me across. I am a bit spolied, but always work hard to please. I am split between high energy hell raiser and super lazy cat. I sleep every chance I get, sometimes mom lets me come in lay and on her nice memory foam mattress, but never alone since I dug a hole in the center of the mattress the first week we got it. I shiver alot with my short hair during these north country winters so Mom got me a really cool winter coat and a snuggie for when the house is chilly. My fav spot to snooze is in front of the fire or Dad's recliner. The second he gets up I sneak onto his spot. My fav toy is a Jolly Tug ball (which is currently stuck in a tree, thanks mom) and my biongo ball which used to be really loud but dad took out the plastic in the middle because I kept chewing on it. I also love the squeaky octopus my mom knitted for me, it's the only soft toy I have never ripped up! I am a fun and loving boy and everyone who meets me always says how cute and well behaved I am. People always stop us on walks to admire my shiny brindle coat! Pitbulls get a bad rap, as do their owners for some reason, but if you don't like me then thats fine, just please don't ban me! I heard mommy crying the other day because Steve our super cool landlord told her the insurance company sent him a notice that they will not insure the house if a pitbull type dog is living there, Steve being super awesome in every way (and my best friend Rocky's, Dad) told mom that he would switch insurance companies because he loves me! He knows I am a good boy and also knows how well my parents take care of me. In the two years we have lived in the house no one has had one bad thing to say about me! Mom even takes me around in nice weather to hand out the homemade dog biscuits she makes for me (I am also allergic to grains so she makes me special yummy dog treats) so other doggies can get treats and people can admire my awesomeness. Everyone should be so lucky as to know the love of a pitbull! I am a lover and a snuggler not a fighter.
