This is our dog- "Max". Short for Maximilian... or Maxwell... or maybe Maximus.. or Maximum Doggage... He came to us already named Max, so the only creative input we get is to speculate what it's short for. Max was a cute puppy. Really cute...like... PUPPY CALENDAR-cute! But as he grew, he became more like a bad drawing of a dog. Like a drawing someone might do who had never studied animal anatomy or appealing proportion. His body elongated like a balloon animal... his head stopped growing early in the game while the rest of him continued without design or reason... His tail and ears sprouted to Dr. Seussian proportions, while his improbable tongue took on a life of its own.... He's like "The Ugly Duckling" in reverse. A friend, upon seeing him for the first time, said "He looks like a Pokemon!" He was right! "Maximander- I choose YOU!"
