Ask Max: An introdogtion

Hi! Hello! Hey! Oh man, oh gosh, I am so excited to meet you! 

My name is Max, and this is my brand-new advice column. Although this advice column is like no other… for I am a dog! Seriously, I am a four-legged, wet-nosed, puppy-eyed dog. Half husky, half cocker spaniel, born in Columbia, and a total Virgo if we’re being real. 

I’m also a total workaholic; I’m a full-time service dog and a part-time columnist at The Medium

That’s enough about me though, I want to know about you! I love cheering people up when they’re feeling sad, anxious, worried, or even just a little confused. I keep it pawsitive when times get ruff. I know that giving good advice can be tough, but it surely can’t be any harder than trying to sit upright in this office chair and typing out this Word document with no thumbs (it has been 6 hours so far)! Helping people is what I do!

However, if I want to give advice… I’m going to need you to send me some questions dog-gone it! So, if you’re ever feeling dowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww– sorry, I saw a squirrel outside and may have blacked out for a moment. 

What was I saying? 

Oh yeah! 

If you’re ever feeling down, make sure you throw me a bone by sending the Editor-in-Chief an email at: — she’ll read me your questions and I’ll lend you a helping paw in the next issue of The Medium. Because sometimes, you just need a chance to look at things from a new perspective. I think things are often much simpler than you humans make them out to be. 

So, until next time, be sure to enjoy some treats, go for a nice walk in the park, and maybe even take the time to bark at a small woodland creature.
