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

Monday, August 31, 2009

FINALLY - MY TURN TO CELEBRATE!

mmmWOOF!
OK, so Mom has been going mad on MY blog with all these beautiful pictures of
SPRING!!!
Now it's my turn to show you how I celebrated the change in season yesterday...

"You see, for a while now, mom has banned me from the pool. Temperatures here in South Africa can swelter during the summer months and when my fur is continuously wet, I become prone to all sorts of skin infections and hot spots! When these flare up, she has no option but to

SHAVE me!! (Yes, you heard right....urggh!!!)

Well, to avoid this (despite the fact that I enjoy being shaved...yes that is true too), Mom bans me from the pool. I soooo love to swim too and I don't like being banned!"

" Anyway, yesterday was a really beautiful Spring Day and after all my staring at the pool, she decided to give me a break......YIPPEE!!!!"

" Yep, this feels good....just where a Golden should be!"

"Anyone care to join me? Kitties welcome too!"

Golden Bliss!!!


"Time to rub the grass in glee!!!"
"That was super cool and hopefully Mom will let me swim lots this summer!"
(So long as the hot spots keep away!)
Lots of licks

Cement ponds totally rock! I went for a swim myself yesterday in our neighbor's pond.

I am relieved you didn't have to get shaved though.

Kisses,
Dexter

Hi Max - you looked like you were in heaven in those photos! It's good to see a dog being where he should be!! Hmmm, we wonder if our humans would build us a pool? Probably now....sigh! We never get anything....he he he!!! ;) Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Max
Well I'm no swimmer but totally understand about the need to cool down in hot weather, and I'm so glad you were allowed in the pool. We Westies know all about skin problems and how horrid that can be. I do hope those hot spot things stay away this summer.
Take care!
Cheers, H.

Clive said...

Take care

Life With Dogs said...

We have the same issues during the summer. The dogs won't stay out of the water and inevitably react to something or get skin cooties. As hot as it is there I can only imagine how badly they want to swim...

Dory and the Mama said...

What a fun swim and Grassy roll!!!

Smileys!
