About midday I got a call from the rescue's medical coordinator letting me know she'd heard from the surgeons's office about Max. Despite their best efforts, Max didn't want to eat or drink. They were asking me to come and take him home to try and get him to eat something. Max may have Golden Retriever in his genetic makeup, but he clearly channels his poodle side when it comes to eating. He is as finicky as a cat when it comes to food and treats.
