Max the Movie - The Joy of Giving Back & a BIG Giveaway!!

"A hero is someone who always tells the truth regardless of the consequences." ~ Max the Movie

A couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to a wonderful family movie called Max, about a precision trained Marine dog who bravely serves on the front lines in Afghanistan alongside his handler, Marine Kyle Wincott. But when military maneuvers go tragically wrong, Max's best friend and handler, Kyle is mortally wounded. Max is traumatized, becomes unable to continue serving and develops PTSD. The military sends Max to live with Kyle's family, and together they start the healing process. To learn more about this incredible movie, you'll have to read my original blog post. This movie is full of adventure. It contains threads of deep friendship, shows how we must all overcome our own challenges, whatever they may be, and shows what it truly means to be a hero. This family friendly movie will show you that there is more than one kind of hero.


Max the Movie highlights some very important topics such as how valuable our military people and military dogs are, how precious family is, and that both people and animals can suffer from PTSD. This movie brings out the patriot in everyone who sees it, and it made me want to do what I could to honor the brave men and women who have served in our military and who, as a result, deal with PTSD. I wanted to celebrate some of those fine men and women who served their country so honorably and unselfishly.

My friends at Warners Bros. wanted to help me, so they sent me a fantastic package of Max Movie items to show my appreciation for their service. I was so excited when everything arrived, I just had to inspect it all. There are Max movie T-Shirts of all sizes for both adults and children, really nice Max movie hats, Max Movie "dog tags" and some very important "duty" bags with their own bone shaped holder for walks that every dog should own.

And let's not forget the most important gift that Warner Bros. sent us to give them...Max the Movie tickets to go see the movie! That's right! What better way to celebrate military dogs, our service men and women and to highlight PTSD than with a wonderful movie like Max??
Mommy and I are sending a BIG care package to a military K9 PTSD service dog group just to say "thank you" for all they've done. It will allow several of our service men and women (and hopefully their PTSD service dogs!) to see the movie, get some cool gear and feel appreciated. We're still setting up all the details, but I promise to announce the final name of the place on my Facebook page and here on my blog in the next 24 hours. So keep checking back. I'll do a special story on them too!

JULY 7, 2015 UPDATE:

Mommy and I are thrilled to announce the recipient of the Pixel Blue Eyes "Max Movie Giving Back" Gift Package....K9s for Warriors!!!
