Max is our very, very "cute" dog. Since he is a rescue dog, I have no idea how old he is but the vet tells me he is at least eight or nine. Even though he has lymphoma of the skin, a chronic cocker allergy and dry eyes; he seems happy and such a ham! His orange basketball is the absolute favorite toy and now Santa brought him two new ones. He loves an audience; always prefers a person to sit and watch him toss his ball in the air and nudge it off the bed with his nose, or to listen to the incessant squeaking as he growls and chews on it. If his humans aren't available, he'll perform for the cats although we all know how easily they are to impress. (much sarcasm)

Max is cute when he is fuzzy with long hair and adorable after his buzz cut when he's feeling a bit "nekkid" and at all stages in between. He has stolen my heart with his big brown eyes and while I don't know how long we can keep his cancer at bay, I'll make sure he is happy and spoiled as long as possible. After all, Max is the "Crown Prince" of Cute!

Submission for Moody Monday topic "cute".
Max hasn't been to Friday's Ark for some time and he loves to visit with other dogs at the vet, so why not at the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickey's Musings? (end of post)
