Two Doggies in Love.

I don’t know who made the first move but here we have Max and Lady proving that love knows no distance and having a bit of an online chat. After all, Max lives all the way over in Hawaii, while Lady is a very long plane ride away in Australia.

As much as I love Max, his online shenanigans have made headlines of late:

Lady tells me that Max is a “professor and a gentleman” and that she has styled herself as “Lady of Palm Beach”, even though that’s only where she goes for holidays and in real life, she’s actually more of a “ruff ruff” than a Lady.

Like so many in the online dating scene, Lady was also caught using a bit of hyperbole. Taking a leaf out of Odie’s book (Garfield), I even caught Lady telling Max that she’s read War & Peace.That’s right. Read it. That wasn’t fell asleep against it and used it as a pillow or chewed it up and devoured the first hundred pages. She wrote that she’d actually read and finished War & Peace.

Lying hound!

This is a dog who can’t even sit on command and stares doe-like with those big brown eyes whenever she has to try something new.

Well, I’m not quite sure what to make of this new online romance but I will be more careful about leaving my computer on and unattended when I duck out. I don’t know how much mischief two dogs can get up to online but I’m not about to find out either.

Besides, for all I know, that Max could really be the Old English Sheepdog from round the corner. You know what they say about online dating, you never can be too careful!!

    Sly boots! There I was scrolling along to see who had posted what in the last day or so and I’m thinking, “Hey, that Malt on the screen looks a lot like…hey, wait a minute!”

    Max is humbled and honored to count Lady as inamorata. He points out that the time zone challenge of the relationship is not too daunting. Only 3 hours if one ignores that pesky date line.

    But beware! While he is no cad, Max is a fickle pup and his loyalty can easily be bought with food bribes. A Pomeranian with pepperoni, a Terrier with treats or a Boxer with bones could result in alienation of affection (as well as a alliterative meltdown.)

    In the meantime, Max has dreams of escorting Lady to a pretty little beach side cafe where he hopes to woo her with drinks bearing umbrellas, fine nibbles and nahenahe (gentle) Hawaiian music as they watch a gorgeous sunset together. Then they’ll bark at the moon.

    I can see Lady pilfering my supplies of home-made choc chip cookies to secure Max’s affections. I took a bag of them to scouts yesterday for Clean up Australia Day and I was an instant hit. Think I’ll throw out my copy of “How to Win Friends and Influence People” and give out cookies instead. One of my friends will be having back surgery soon and we agreed. I’ll be dropping round cookies instead of casseroles!!
    The beach side setting sounds fabulous. I can see them becoming the next big celebrity couple. Shame both of them have been “fixed” or our retirement fund might have been looking good!

    Unfortunately, something tells me that it’s going to be short lived but as the saying goes: “better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all!”

    I’ve always wondered what dogs do when we’re not home and now I know – if they’re not reading books they’re finding love online. I don’t blame Lady for chewing War and Peace up a bit – toward the end I had the urge to do that too. They look happy together. Thanks for making me smile!

    You’re welcome. If you didn’t check out Max the Dog’s blog, I recommend it. Max is a great tonic.

    Max is great and I’m now longing to go to Hawaii and check out it’s natural wonders and Hawaiian culture for myself…and of course, meet Max and owner Tom.
