Max is learning some tricks… and by tricks, I mean that you can tell (ask) him to do something, and there's a good chance you'll get a specific action in response! A couple of the latest:
Smiling for the camera… if I point my cell phone at him, he smiles for the camera and then grabs at it to see the picture after it's been taken! He hasn't figured that out for my Nikon yet, but he *looooves* checking himself out on my camera phone!
Because he'll cram his cheeks full of food if allowed, we have to dole meals out in small doses… before we give him another handful of whatever he's eating, we ask him to “show me” that it's all gone! He's totally set to audition for Fear Factor or Survivor and dominate those eating challenges!
