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!

MAXDOG's CHRISTMAS TRIBUTE

NELSON MANDELA ...... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Dear Mr Mandela

As a self-appointed blogging tour guide for this, our beautiful country, it would be remiss of me to not wish you:

A VERY, VERY HAPPY HAPPY AND BARKFUL BIRTHDAY!!!

On this your 91st birthday and on behalf of this household, we would like to extend our best doggie BIRTHDAY WISHES! I am 9 and a half years old, so that makes me about 69years old in human terms. I am rather young compared to you, but I’m already starting to feel my age, so I am in awe/paw of your longevity....and I too am trying to do my bit for a peaceful world.

We hope that you have the best birthday ever!!! You see, even the doggie world is alert to your fame. I am also a children lover, so we thank you for setting up the NELSON MANDELA CHILDREN’S FUND TOO and we hope that the world will take note of it’s good work.

Congratulations and THANK YOU for everything you have done for our beautiful country. All our humans are much happier with things here. The matters for DOGS, however, could do with a bit of attention. Is there any possibility that you could use your big influence to help the dire situation of our desperate doggies and animals all over our country. I was thinking that perhaps you could use some of that money towards our NSPCA and our training towards Veterinary Students. Perhaps this is not the right forum to address these matters, but maybe, just maybe you could think about it???

But really, we just wanted to wish you a wonderful birthday! And to show how serious I am, I make a commitment to restore peace between Toffee and myself in this household.

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! .....MAY PEACE AND LONG LIFE BE YOURS....YOU ARE ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS!

With lots of love and doggie licks from the MAXDOG HOUSEHOLD!

Good call, Max. Nelson Mandela was my hero when I was at university (many, many moons ago). Our student lounge was named after him.

Great post Max!
Gail tells me that one of the biggest disappointments of her life was when she missed seeing Nelson Mandela speaking from the South African Embassy in Trafalagar Square. ( She worked in an office overlooking the Square at the time, but was away on business when he came to visit..)
We could do with some inspirational leadership over here just now....
I am thirteen and a half, so depending on how you count dog versus human year, am not far off being as old as the marvellous Mr Mandela.
Cheers, H.
