A Guest Post by Maximus

It is me. Maximus. You may know me as The Nemesis, but privately my mom calls me Bubbers, Bubbaloo, Bubber-bears, or Dummy. It just depends on the moment.

I thought it would be a good idea to write about my favorite moment of the day. Oh sure..I love when Dad wrestles with me or when I sit on Mom snuggle by Mom in front of the fire, but this? This is the big one.

Mom comes home, let’s me outside, and I sit. I know what’s coming. Well, I think I do. There are days when I wonder if she’s letting me out in the hopes I just keep walking, but I’m simply too lazy for that.

I think I smell something, but I quickly realize it’s just me. Alright, so “quickly” might be a bit of an exaggeration. Mom says the only thing I do quickly is scarf down a whole birthday cake.

I resume the wait. My buttocks are cold, but if I walk around, I risk missing it. My ears stand on the ready.

Do you see my ears? They’re on the ready. That’s dog talk, by the way.

IMG_6287

Wha..wait. Something’s going on. It’s either them or that mangy cat that beat me up last summer. Don’t make fun. This cat is tough.

Hold…..hold….stay calm…

Here it is! It’s the moment!

Alert! Alert! Danger! Stand down...it’s just a 9-year old neighbor. Whew. Thought it might be the cat.

Love and adore me, kids. I’ve waited all. day. for this.

Thanks for letting me guest post today. Mom keeps saying stuff like “Gotta cook dinner!” and “Why isn’t this house ever clean?” Really wish I could help her with that. As you can see, this blogging thing has worn me out. How does she do it?

Life In The Thrifty Lane said...

The funniest post ever!!! I'm still thinking about the cat!!

Emily @ On the V Side said...

I love that big lug :)

Gotta love him just for the fact that he loves your kids so much!

Jane@Little House of Projects said...

Great post! Makes me think of the neighbor's dog who waited for us after school.

Lettered Cottage said...

I love it!

Must go snuggle my Maximus now!
:-)

I LOVE this! I had to read it aloud to my husband so he understood why I kept giggling. We have two labs and they're too wimpy to let their delicate hineys sit in the snow for anything.

Kara said...

SOOOO sweet! Love this post! The last photo is the best...pillow and blanket? Boy he has the life, doesnt he? :)

Staci K. said...

I love Maximus! When my girls were your kids' age our dog would wait for them by the window and get so excited when the bus pulled up. Thanks for the nice memory. :)

Jen said...

LOVE it!! Maximus seems like such a great dog and he's gorgeous too!

I can't get over how much snow you have on the ground!! Whoa!!! Here in Texas that's just unheard of!!

Birdie said...

So I am not the only one who lets her dog sleep on a pillow! :) Adorable post, he is a stunning dog.

Carmen @ Life with Sprinkles on Top said...

Awwwwww! What a big sweetie! This is a hilarious post!

Lilybird said...

so cute...I love this post, and your blog

Tara said...

This post is too funny! Maximus did a fantastic job!

Richella said...

So funny. That Maximus is one smart dog, for sure. He's actually quite a good writer!

This post really took me bag to our years in Hillsdale. We had a Basset hound at the time. It was hilarious to see how the snow dampened his enthusiasm for nosing around the back yard.

I showed my husband this post, and without even thinking I said, "Lookit, honey."

Some parts of Michigan just seep into your consciousness and stay there! :)

Robyn (Out of Ours) said...

He might be all those things you've called him, but he knows who's important. Thanks for putting a smile on my face :)

Madison said...

Loved it! I think Maximus and my dog could get along great. My dog loves kids, too, so they would have one thing in common. :)

Katherine @ Grass Stains said...

That's just ADORABLE! Love that Maximus guest posted today. :)

Jacki said...

Cute post!! ! Giggling. I have a "Boomer" who gets just as excited when Dad gets home.

Thelittlebrownhouse.us said...

Love it! And it looks like you could be here in the Northwest with all that snow!

The Tiny Homestead said...

I just love your dog and the place he has in your family. Any time you have him guest post is fine by me.

Rachel @ A Tall Drink of Water said...

I just love this post!! Nothing like man's best friend waiting for the kids to come home!! Adorable!

Yours TruLee, Ann Marie said...

That is the cutest thing I have ever seen!!! Great job....I love it!

Valerie Jean said...

This is so cute and so true! It reminds me of my dog Lucy, I think her and Maximus are a match made in heaven:)

AliLilly said...

SOOOOOO SWEET!!! How cute is this! I love this. This made my night!!! :)

Mrs. Reese said...

So stinkin' cute!!

adrienne said...

my dogs sit in the snow as well to wait for the school bus. it's so funny. i do wonder how their butts don't get cold!

Anonymous said...

Great post and I don't even like dogs.

poindextr said...

I love him! Just love him. Makes me so miss my big guy. Thanks for sharing Max today.

Dawn said...

LOL! My old dog used to do this with my kids. Of course, no snow. She'd start whining at the door about 5 min before the bus would roll up. Guess she'd hear it coming. And she'd sit on the front porch in the same stance as Maximus,...waiting, waiting...and then as soon as they got off the buss at the top of the road and started down, she'd take off like a shot!

These Are The Days said...

That is a pretty BOSS lookin' dog! Yeah, I don't normally like (or more specifically want to own) big dogs, but he's making it hard to resist. The name is pretty killer too!!

Bonnie @ the Boatwright Family said...

he is the cutest/dumbest doggie ever. i love him!

kurlypink said...

Love this! Three months ago we lost our beloved cat who, for every single day of my kids' scholastic lives, waited just inside the door for when they came home from school. The funny thing was, she would come down from whatever warm place she was sleeping about 5 minutes before they could even be seen out the window. I don't know how she knew but she did and it was killer the first day my son came home and she wasn't there. Even the day before she died, she was waiting, right inside the door.

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

HOW FUN IS THIS!!! I have two doggies too that are loved like Maximus! Maybe a guest post from them is in order! ;)

Geezees Custom Canvas Art said...

Too funny! Your dog post always crack me up.

CathyB said...

I have to be honest. I don't know if I visit your blog every day to read about your mad decorating skills or Maximus. I LOVE that dog! Thanks for sharing from his POV!!

Beth@The Stories of A2Z said...

You are hilarious. And brilliant. We love Maximus! Just look how many comments he is getting :). I think your Bubbers should have a regular feature on here!

CosmoGirl Carla said...

Awwww!!! Love Maximus! What a sweetie.

Watch out fellow bloggers! hehe

Jenny said...

This is so cute, and having just recently adopted a big black lovable lab, I appreciate it even more. He just LOVES us. No. matter. what.

Toya said...

That is one lucky dog to have two adorable kiddos who love him as much as he loves them.

Thanks for letting Maximus hi-jack your blog.

Lauren @ 31diy said...

That last pic is adorable. Maximus is such a sweetie.

Anonymous said...

I hate to admit this, but I log on with the hopes your blog will be about the dog...sorry. I'm sure your blog is very interesting, but I just love to read about your family and their relationship with Max. You really put a great spin on those types of blogs. Looking forward to the next one.

Dream Mom said...

I think we need more posts by Maximus or his own blog called JAM! (Just a Maximus!)

I'm sorry, I'm going to have to bother you with another comment on this post.

I'm catching up on blog reading & my husband walks in...catches a glimpse of the Maximus guest post & pushes me out of the way to read...

I guess you could call him a fan. LOL

Barb said...

What a fun post. I love you too Bubbers! After each picture, my heart was just pounding and anticipating his every thought. What a great dog for the kids. He is big, loving, loyal and how he loves my grandchildren. Love you Maximus!!!!!

Nancy said...

I. LOVE. Maximus!!! And you have taught him well in the art of blogging...just the right touches of humor with that sweet, tug-at-the-heartstrings moment toward the end when his children get home. Thanks for a great start to my day!!

Violet said...

Ha Ha...you totally had me laughing on this one. He is too cute and looks very lovable! :) And I love the pictures, you are a great photographer!

Rob Caldwell said...

What a great dog! That's how it should be. (It almost reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes when Hobbes would plow over Calvin each day coming home from school. :) )

Rissa said...

D'awww, he's beautiful <3 What a big softie!

Powers Fam said...
