When it was time to wean baby Phoenix this year, we needed a friend for him to go out with, so, we gave him Max.  At the time, Max was a 2 year old and very laid back, so we figured it would be a good match.

Max was accepting right away.  The Baby Phoenix spent most of the first two weeks looking underneath Max for the milk machine.  Needless to say Phoenix was very disappointed and would even get mad at Max.  Max took it all in stride and now they are best buds.  They have been very good for each other, Max doesn’t care much about anything but eating and the baby is able to get him to play.  On the otherhand, nothing much phases Max, so he has been good for stability.
