Scrapping Maxx Dogg

I have had the chance to scrap so much this month. Today was no exception.. I got some layouts done. I wanted to share this layout though. It's in persuasion for the adopting of animals from the pound.






This layout is very special to me. This is the day that Maxx came home with us when we adopted him from the pound. Maxx has been such a joy in our lives. As some of you know we are having difficulty getting pregnant... and I'm not saying that my doggies fill the void of a child, but they do help me with the motherly love that I want to give. I had never owned a dog before Maxx and my parents never allowed us to have pets. Maxx has changed my parents way of thinking regarding pets. They love him and they love Peanut as well (we got Peanut this past fall). We rescued Maxx from the pound, where they put animals to sleep if they are not adopted within a certain timeframe. Maxx was 1 week away to be put to sleep and let me just say that the thought of him being killed is horrifying. He is such a magnificent dog. He is loving, quiet, playful when we want him to be playful, obidient, fully trained, and extraordinarly smart. He loves us so much and his affection towards us is showen everyday. When we adopted Maxx, we were given a free vet visit. When we took him, the vet said that Maxx will be the best dog we will ever own. I asked why and he said because Maxx knew we rescued him and Maxx will do anything to show his gratitude. My husband and I didn't believe it. Then when Maxx got sick and we took him to another vet, the vet said the exact samething. And up to this date, they both have been absolutely correct. They said whenever a dog is rescued they know. Peanut is a wonderful dog as well. We didn't rescue him from a pound, but we did take him in when his owners were not able to keep him anymore and needed to find a good home for him. That is why my husband and I urge everyone that if you are planning to get a pet, whether it's a dog, cat, or any other type, please check with your pound (or killing animal facility) first. Precious animals like Maxx and Peanut need a home and should not be put to sleep because a puppy is cuter.
