And look at those faces, they are ready for a new year of running and playing with treats and long walks with Mom and Dad. What a life these two spoiled little puppies have. Isn't it great to have pets in your life? Max is getting older (he's the schnauzer) and sometimes when he jumps up onto the ottoman, he misses. It hurts his feelings so bad that he'll hide under the kitchen table until we go get him and pick him up. He won't try to jump again for a few hours. It's really sad to see him getting older. Gus, on the other hand, is only a year old and he flies through the air.
