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!

Hey there all my furry friends!
Mom and I had a rather pleasant Sunday afternoon. I got her to play the piano for me....
...."So, Mom, what ya gonna play?"
How about:
'How much is that doggie on the cushion?'

mmmm....I'm listening, but that doesn't sound like the doggie song?!

Why ya giving up, Mom?

Good boy?!...but it wasn't me playing!

Where ya going now, Mom?

Peek a boo?!
HUMANS!!! I tell you...I don't understand them!
Lots of licks

Max! Thank you for that most educational comment. My goodness there are many things named after my most large and handsome self.

I wonder if the Mango weavil is related to Mango airlines in any way and that is why momma doesn't care to fly.

I am glad to live in a place where those Mango pests do not reside. Imagine if I caught the leaf drop!

Your mom was nice to play piano for you. It is nice to see her face too finally.

You didn't miss much not watching the stupid pee-wee movies. Suffice it to say that no matter what he is supposed to do he always just goes over the a-frame.

Hi Max
How nice that you can listen to your Mom playing the piano. We have a piano too, but it is very neglected as neither Gail nor I have quite mastered the instrument.
Cheers! H.

Join the club, Max, join the club!
No dog understands humans and then about the time we think we do, they do something crazy and we know we don't. At least its all the same everywhere!


Madd said...

Barb said...

Hi Max, I kind of agree with you on humans. Some of them are quite strange at times. That does not include your mom of course! You are the lucky one, having a mom who can play the piano for you. Until next time .......

Martha Basset said...

Humans are an enigma Max - thats a big word for Monday morning!
We think it is lovely that your mom would play the piano for you even if it wasn't 'how much is that doggie on the cushion' - would you have joined in at the woof woof part we wonder!
It was lovely to see your mom too - our humans are very internet shy we must say!!!
Have a nice Monday.

Emma said...

Max, you look so handsome :) No wonder your mom wanted to play the piano for you. All mom can do for me is to play her cell phone ring tone to make me sing hehe.

Big hugs to you,
