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:

MAXDOG's CHRISTMAS TRIBUTE

YES! IT DOES GET COLD!

mmmWOOF!



Everyone has been asking if South Africa gets cold????













Well the answer is YES!

...but let me explain...

Southern Africa is known for its wonderful weather. We are a predominantly subtropical location with sunny skies for most of the year and temperatures which are moderate to hot.

Our country has a great range of climates depending where you live. Where I live – in Johannesburg, South Africa – we are known to have some of the most wonderful weather in the world, but we are on a plateau and so when the wind blows in from the high mountains of the Drakensberg and the Cape (which are sometimes covered in snow), we get the brunt of icy weather.

Our city, Johannesburg, lies at an altitude of 1694 metres. This keeps the average summer temperatures below 30 degrees Celsius. In winter, for the same reason, night-time temperatures can drop to freezing point, in some places lower. Yes, sometimes we do indeed get snow, but not like the snow storms which hit some of your places. Also, we don't get snow every year, but we DO GET THE COLD!

If you are interested in more information about our varying climate, you are welcome to visit:

Today it’s not as cold as I predicted previously. Our maximum temperature is expected to reach 15 degrees Celcius today and 10 on Friday, but with the wind, it is going to gets really icy and these humans here are really not organised for cold weather.

When it gets cold, I will merely snuggle up somewhere warm in the house. Im looking forward to summer however when we can swim in our swimming pool.

In the meantime, Mom's blanket is MINE!!!


Have a barkful day!
Love Maxdog

Hey Max

You look nice and cozy in your Mom's blanket. Our mom wants to know if your Mom made the quilt in the background of the picture. It is very nice.
