By God, Alien, I think you're right!

Alien said Max looked like he had a lot of Wheaten Terrier in him, and I did some research on the breed. By Jove, I think he's right! Here's a pure-bred Wheaten Terrier:


And here is Max:


Cleaned up and clipped, they'll look like litter mates.

Why is the egg carton wedged next to the dryer?

Unknown, my MIL has chickens and I collect egg cartons for her. I keep them on the shelf above the washer and dryer and they're forever sliding off. I need a better place to keep them.

Stay on good terms with your groomer. In a hot climate Max will appreciate a "short trim" each spring, just short enough to add comfort and still grow out by winter, and so will you. He'll need brushing every couple of days to avoid tangles and matts as his fur gets longer

Max looks good in any pedigree....

Yeah, he's a purebred Wheaten Terrier until you see another breed he looks like next week. You can groom damned near any terrier to look like what you want. Him and Legal Lucy look almost exactly alike and I think she's a Cockapoo. Lisa thinks she's something else.
I thought CGD was a Buhund mix for awhile. Then I had a vet check him out and her best guess was wolf and husky. DNA did show a lot of wolf but was inconclusive on everything else. He might be part chihuahua for all I know. But then again his curly tail suggests his dominant traits are spitz. Who the fuck knows? But more importantly, who the fuck cares? He's CharlieGodammit, the Internet's Most Famous Dog, even more famous than Barkley.
I'm tellin' you, quit while you're ahead. Max might be mixed with 4 or 5 breeds.

I think Max is adorable! No matter what he is...and Ken I have always said Cockapoo...you did not...get it right buddy...: P he also looks a little like my sisters dog and he is a schnowzer...forget spelling it correctly too late at nite to care...and yes I cheated on nite as well...he is a cutie...and if he gets along with you all...there you have it, a happy family. Nice!

To quote Teen Queen when asked what kind of dog Max is:
"He's a Max dog, duh."
