Max is the office dog. He is a proud Lowchen and protects the office from UFO's (unidentified feline objects, but he is OK with our cat) and acts as an unofficial food taster. If it's food it needs tasting. Max's home away from home is the local kennels. He loves going playing with his doggie friends and gets excited when the car is being packed.

Dexter is Max's playmate. He is an English Springer Spaniel and is the (un)official watch dog. He does not like cats. Dexter is not impressed when he goes into kennels when I am away from home for a while. He is a jumper so is often found in other dogs' runs in the mornings. He can't wait to come home after his "holiday".
