Say hello to Max. I found him a few days ago when I was running. I ran by the parking lot of out favorite bakery and there he was. He was limping on his right rear leg and he was about 10-15 pounds underweight. As I was looking at him I told him, "I'm not finishing my run today, am I?" The answer to that was no.
We don't know what caused his right rear leg problems, but we (me, Mr$. bonddad and the vet) think he was hit by a car. The ball has been shattered. But there is an operation to get him healed up that we're going to do a week from Monday.
But -- here's the problem. We already have three dogs and we just don't have room. Max is about 1 to 1 1/2 years old and is really nice. He is strong, but that's a breed trait. Once you sit him down and start petting him he will lick your face just like a puppy.
So -- for all the bonddad blog readers who are also dog fans -- we could use your help. If you are interested in taking him in, please leave a comment below. We will happily work with you to get him where he needs to go.
Thanks for helping if you can. And spread the word -- max needs a home.

The Bonddad Economic History Project
At the beginning of 2012, I decided to start looking at the actual, statistical history of the US economy starting in 1950. The reason is simple: to find out what really happened. So, when you see title of a post that begins with a year such as 1957, followed by "employment" or "Fed policy: you know what it's for. You can also access the information by typing in BE for Bonddad econ and a year to find information on a particular year.
Here is a link to pages that contain links to all the posts on the years listed.
