The joy Maxine inspires, and the interactions she gets, make her happy too: "She loves people," Bryan says.
Fortunately, one needn't wait for a chance encounter with Maxine to be uplifted by her. Naturally, such a popular pup has her very own Instagram page, which folks around the world follow for photos and videos like the one above.
"This all started because I just wanted to bring my dog to work. It's nice to be able to carry the adorable thing that makes people smile, and I'm honored just to witness all the nice interactions that Maxine has with strangers," Bryan says, realizing that now it's more like he is the one tagging along with Maxine. "Who are we kidding. I'm just the guy who carries the dog. Everyone just wants the dog. Fine."
We're glad he understands.
