Good afternoon Max

Good afternoon

Are you getting excited for Easter?

I am, my Mum keeps hiding colourful eggs for me to fetch.

Are you sure they’re for fetching?

Of course, just like the shoes and socks. People leave them all over the house for me to bring back to them. I like to help.

That is very kind of you. Are you sure they don’t mind?

Absolutely. Mummy sometimes puts her socks in the spinning machine, so I am constantly having to fetch them out and put them back. She would be lost without my help.

I am sure she would. Is Mummy your best friend?

She is!

That’s lovely. How would you describe your perfect day? 

I love every day. I am happy as long as there is some eating, some sleeping and plenty of playing.

Me too, Max. What is your favourite game to play?

I love chasing a ball best.

Fantastic! Is the ball your favourite toy?

Nope, my favourite toy is my blanket. I nibble it and chew it all up and it’s so much fun.

It sounds like it! Okay, what sort of treats and snacks do you like best?

I love whatever you give me!

Well, it’s wonderful to meet someone who is so easy to please. 

I just want to be friends.

We can definitely be friends. Right, I have one last very important question for you Max.


Are you a good boy?

Mummy says I am a very good boy, but only when I am not taking socks and shoes…
