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:

May God bless you and thank you for following me!

Hey everyone. Granny (Mom's Mom) came to visit us yesterday for lunch. She often comes to visit on a Sunday. It's not easy for us when she is here, because we have to be really quiet and contained dogs. You see, Granny is very old - 88yrs- and she can hardly walk, so if we run around wildly then we could knock her over.

Well, yesterday Granny wanted to pat and cuddle me. As you know I love being patted. Then she wanted to give me a dog biscuit. I took it 'NICELY!' - just like Mom taught me

When all the cuddling was over, I settled down in my corner in the kitchen and snoozed the day away.

Later, when Mom and the "Boss" took granny home, Tammy and I jumped into the back of the car and went along too. We were delighted when, about 2kms from Granny's home, the "Boss" stopped the car and Mom got out with our leads.

Well, we were able to work off all our energy on that walk. Unfortunately Mom didn't take her camera along - she had two of us to control - so we don't have any photos of the walk. But we saw a snap shot of us (almost) - a guy walking TWO Irish Wolf Hounds. You should have seen those guys...EISH!...they are gianormous!!!

Take care and have a Barkful week

Hi Max
Your Granny seems like a very nice lady, giving cuddles AND dog biscuits! I'm glad you had a good walk later too. Do you know, it took me absolutely ages to train Gail to remember the camera on walks!
Cheers, H.

Its very good to be quiet and kind and nice when your Granny comes to visit because sometimes, just sometimes, a Granny will slip you a little something from the table or give you an extra treat. So Granny's can be very important people to have around!

YD, sometimes with Samantha & June said...

Good doggies! What a nice visit from your Granny.
