maximus turned 4 years old on november 13th, and we helped him celebrate with a walk with harper and a cake after she went to bed. yes, we do get him a cake for his birthday. he was our practice "baby" before our harper was born. and with the arrival of the little attention getter, maximus hasn't had nearly as many walks or scratches behind the ear. i'm certain the day will soon come when harper gives maximus lots of attention in the form of tail pulling and climbing.
