Dear Readers and faithful friends,

After a number of years of wonderful blogging, this blog has effectively become dormant - except for occasional updates regarding my book, MAXDOG. I have left this blog as a legacy to my dog and a place of sanctuary where we can reflect upon his life. Take your time, peruse the pages spanning Max's 18 months in cyberspace. Feel refreshed and uplifted because his story is an amazing one of..."LIVING LIFE TO THE MAX!"
My activities have now moved on to my new blog entitled "LIVING LIFE TO THE MAX". Please join me there where you can read about my family and canine companions. I also invite you to visit MAXDOG's FANPAGE on FACEBOOK. You can follow the specific links by clicking below:

If you would like to follow me on a deeper, spiritual level, then I invite you to visit my more personal blog:

May God bless you and thank you for following me!

MAXDOG's CHRISTMAS TRIBUTE

CAN A SNOUT COMPARE?
























It is obvious, from the picture taken, that I find my dog's snout amazing!!

DID YOU KNOW THE FOLLOWING:??

* That the longer the dog's nose, the better sniffer and smell detector he/she is!

* Some dogs are bred for their sense of smell... to become hunters, trackers or sniffer dogs. Some dogs can even detect cancer through their sense of smell

* A dogs nose is wet to attract moisture; it collects molecules from its surroundings in order to smell and interpret them.

* A dog licks its nose to keep it moist in order to enhance its smell.

* A dog's nasal membranes are far bigger than those of humans. Indeed its olfactory bulbs are 4 times larger than ours.

* Proportionately to ours, a dog devotes more of its brain to its sense of smell.

* When a dog smells around, he is in fact "Reading the News" of the world around him.


So, be aware of your dog...when he puts his snout up in the air and sniffs deeply, accept that there is something unusual happening around!

How come when a dog licks his nose it keeps it moist - yet when we lick our lips they dry out?

Well....I don't think we smell with our lips!
