A Day with Max--a Tall Tails Classic Pet Bed Giveaway and #TallTailsAdventures


By on 5/09/2014 12:31:00 PM

Our dog,  Max, is the baby of the family—even though one of the cats is now officially the youngest.  Max is my constant, daily companion—and is a frequent focus of our Wordless Wednesday posts.  We try to include Max in as many of our daily adventures as possible—even if my Wordless Wednesday posts make it seem like he’s always asleep!  He is a really important, and active, part of our family!  We were recently offered the opportunity to give away a Tall Tails Classic Pet Bed to one lucky reader and thought it would be the perfect time to share a little more of our "baby", Max!   Take a closer look at our blog's top dog--and enter to win a Tall Tails Classic Pet Bed for your own favorite pup via the Rafflecopter entry at the end of the post!


We didn't really plan to adopt a hound dog.  We went to an animal shelter in Southern Ohio a few months after Bear, our 16 year old Pomeranian, was put down.  The area had been hit with a pretty severe economic downturn and the shelter was overflowing.  We went to adopt a puppy who would grow up with our girls.  There were some absolutely adorable yellow and black lab puppies available.  We were going to adopt one.   Uh.  We were.  Then--we met Max.  The second he gave me his wrinkled, hound dog face--framed by those ears--he had me hooked.  I couldn't leave without him.  It helped also that the yellow lab puppies tried to bite my husband and the black lab puppies ate his shoe.  Literally.  While we didn't plan to adopt a hound dog--I don't think my home will ever be complete without one now.  Max is just the best dog ever.



You can take a hound dog to the city....but...


Max loves to hang out inside with the family--but, he also loves to explore the outdoors.  He is at his happiest when running along a wooded trail or plunging through a shallow creek.  


He loves to run and chase the girls or anything else that catches his eye.  He is guided by his snout--and there is literally not a mud puddle, creek or trail that he doesn't love to sniff.  


As much as he loves to sniff--he does love to sleep or lounge around.  I may not entirely exaggerate when I say that he may sleep 18 hours a day...some days.  If there isn't somewhere to go or something to do--he finds a spot to rest up for the next adventure.


Sometimes (most of the time) in bed....on my pillow...




Sometimes on his Tall Tails Classic Bed



Sometimes with his favorite toy....


Or with his favorite partners in crime...


  Or even on Grandpa's bed when he's visiting Grandma & Grandpa...


We love to keep him healthy, happy and ready for adventure.  Sniffing, running, and miles of outdoor adventures take a lot out of a dog.  We always try to make sure that Max is up to date on his vet visits, eats quality food (although he could probably use a few more hikes and a few less treats these days), and has quality bedding and pet products.  I love that Max loves his Tall Tails pet bed--and I love even more that it is easy to clean (machine washable and dryable), lightweight enough to pack along for stays at Grandma's house or the kennel--and that the bed seems durable enough to stand up to Max's lounging!   


We love Max wholeheartedly--and cannot imagine life without him!  It's not ALL sleeping around here--there are a few fun and games too along the way!

  2. It depends on the weather. If it's hot they go lay in their kennel on the cool floor, if it's cold they are usually up on the couch!!

  9. Our dog loves sleeping in his dog beds in different rooms around the house. At night he sleeps in his large kennel (he is a medium size do) and has room to stretch out in his "lair." On hot days he may just sprawl out on the hardwood floor.
