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

CUTE & CUDDLY...NOT SO FAST!

mmmWOOF!
Hey Guys, Max (the tour guide) here....
I was looking through some of Mom's photos again and came across this one.
What do you think...CUTE OR CUDDLY?



















Well, let me tell you, they may look cute, but the BABOON should be respected! A baboon is a formidable animal. It has large canine teeth and has been known to challenge and chase off lions. It is, however, an extremely intelligent animal and very much part of our amazing heritage in this country.

In many of our parks, these creatures will come up to your car window to investigate. In certain of our parks in South Africa they have taken their chances and even reached into cars to grab items from inside the cars. This behaviour often results in them having to be shot to curb this trait. Sometimes they even get physically hurt by humans who try to stop this behaviour and then have to try and fend for themselves in a maimed condition.

This is an unfortunate problem and is often the result of human development encroaching on the baboon's environment. If you are interested in this creature, I encourage you to visit this website:

That's my speech for today. I love you all!

We don't know if we'd like to have those things around our neck of the woods. We have seen Animal Planet and they can jump on your house and throw things at you. What if they hit our momma on the head and she passed out. Who would fix our dinner☺
