Ah, Max, the unsung hero of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Max is seriously amazing if you think about it. He's a good dog, obviously good with people, and yet he loves his owner, this extremely grouchy Grinch. He stays by his side and takes care of him as well as a dog can. Max is where the Grinch's heart actually is. Recommended!
