Max is enjoying a small dose of fame.

You see, aside from some folks who are harvesting “likes” with stock photos of Maltese puppies, Max has been the near sole contributor using WordPress’ “Maltese dogs” tag.

Finally, WordPress elected to use a picture of our hero as the header photo for the category.

Here it is:

Yup, that’s the whole image. Of hundreds of pictures on his blog, this was the chosen one.

Wouldn’t have recognized it without the photo credit on the corner.

Congratulations, Max, I think. Enjoy your fame

Oh, and they changed the photo already. Sick transit, Gloria

  1. And which fartarse ‘creative’ thought this was clever? Probably from the same stable as the one that thought hiding ‘images’ in its ‘block’ sector would encourage the user to try any of the utter bollocks you have to hunt through in order to find what you want.

    Still, Max has had recognition…his fifteen minutes of fame. Time to party…let milk bones be unconfined.

    • Yesterday he was busted for sneaking into the AJF’S purse and purloining a whole baggie full of mini milk bones. He got about 20 of them ( fortunately they’re tiny) and he got a major scolding from DogMom. He told me it was worth it.

  2. Just talking to someone who knows Max makes me somehow feel superior to others now. It’s like Buddy seeing Santa and yelling that he knows him! I’ve seen him in all sorts of ensembles. I remember when he had paw troubles. I remember when he lived in Hawaii. This is his time to shine. The Spoiler of Beef should prepare him a feast in the presence of his enemies.

  3. Way to go Max! You were born a winner. Murphy is so proud of you and she says you should milk your 15 minutes of fame for all it’s worth!

    And pay no attention to Tom. You’re not conceited. You’re well assured of your power and worth.

    Think positive. Test negative.

    • Good to see ya! Not even you could do anything with that photo. Maybe just title it “Furry Malt Chest.” I have to assume there’s a WordPress bot that randomly plucks photos from the tag category and crops them to fit irrespective of content. At least, I hope that’s the explanation. Oh well, it’s not like The Furball doesn’t have enough pics circulating on WP. Look forward to seeing your posts and all the best in what so far seem like 2020 Part Deux.

  5. Hmmm…
    Did they ask permission for the pic?
    If not, the US legal system can be beneficial here.
    ‘Hurt feelings,’ ‘Copyright,’ ‘intrusion,’ ‘Privacy breech,’ ‘Family breakdown,’ and ‘abuse of dog’ by cutting off head.
    All in all I expect Max to make around $5 million from this.
    (15% to me for advice)

    • Too late! The offending photo disappeared within minutes and I can’t prove my copy hasn’t been photoshopped. WP is mum on the dog abuse. I threatened them with never posting again in the silly blog but they were thrilled to hear that and asked if I would swear to it. Humph. The Maltese is miffed.

  6. Andy Warhol had a younger brother who created pictures of vegetarian baked bean cans instead of soup. His pictures are in the same museum as Book Toby. Toby wants to know if Max would like to join him at the museum for some unsupervised noshing and late night toots.

    • Well, there are only about 300 photos of Max on his silly blog so Nox can fangirl all she wants. Max would, of course, be honored to date Nox provided she understands a long term future that includes puppies is not a possibility. (“Thanks a lot, DogDad.”)

      • Nox likes funny dogs, so all the funny pictures that make Max look silly or funny, makes Nox howl. πŸ˜„

        Sine Nox would not be able to have puppies, even if Max could sire puppies, she understands that a long term future wouldn’t include puppies. (Thanks to Dog Mom and Dog Dad and the veterinarian.)

        She still thinks Max would be fun to date as he is so cute and funny.
