^ This was his story starting out. I've seen the occasional post or two refer to it, so I decided to show off the handsome fella he has blossomed into. We can NEVER go back to a kibble fed dog; the three most basic things, the lack of stink and poop, beautiful coat is ENOUGH for us :)

He's SUCH a handsome boy!!!!  We had boxers for years!  I miss that goofy, wiggle butt every morning, although my two have their own style of this!  You must adore your boy!  He's just magnificent!

Thank you everyone! :)

It makes me just a little bit sad, he truly is a big boy now; I can barely lift him up when I force him up to cuddle me on couch (he doesn't like cuddling anymore-unless it's on his terms lol :( )

Thank you everyone! :)

I know what you mean. Iorveth turned two in November... I've cried on both birthdays because it's another year gone. Granted, Iorveth only got 60 lbs and, for a dog his size, is very compact and portable but he and Max are DOGS now... They aren't puppies anymore (physically, anyways)  :(

 

As far as the cuddling, you know what I've noticed with both my younger boys? They were cuddly puppies. Iorveth used to seek me out and, if I was sitting on the floor, he would curl up in my lap for a nap. He was happiest in my lap. Then, when they hit about 6 months to a year, they just became super independent and really wanted nothing to do with cuddling (unless it was cold out, then Iorveth wanted me for my body heat). They acted like I was smothering them when I would try to cuddle. When Buck hit about 2.5 years old, he suddenly started seeking out affection. He is definitely DH's dog and Buck is happiest with his face buried in DH's chest. Iorveth, in the last month or so, has also suddenly gone back to seeking out affection. He has turned into a velcro dog. If I'm on the couch, he no longer wants to sit on "his" cushion on the other side. He wants to be in the middle seat pressed up against me. When I extend the legs, he wants to be in between my knees, curled up in a ball. If I'm on the bed, he wants to be draped over my legs or curled up against my side (like he is right now). He is constantly putting his head in my lap in an attempt to get me to scratch him and he is constantly pressing his cheek to my lips to get me to kiss all over him (one of his favorite things). The turnaround both boys did was really interesting and happened not long after they turned two.

Maybe Max will do the same thing.

Heehee that's hilarious! I don't lie about these kinds of things when I say them: he is a complete drama queen. He is certainly a velcro dog (only with me, I don't work as much as my husband, so that probably had a huge impact,and when we're both him he always has an eye on me if he's not following me around) but when he goes off on his own around his bedtime, he does NOT like to be messed around with (like I usually do to him because that's when he LOOKS the most cuddliest..in a tight little puppy ball lol) :D

When Iorveth doesn't want to be messed with, I get a big, LOUD, long groan of annoyance. Not a growl, by any means, but an "Oh, you've got to be KIDDING me!" type of groan. Iorveth is very much my dog and, like Max, if he's not following me around the house, he does keep one eye on me.
