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 guys. Yesterday we watched, in horror,
...while TOFFEE had his bath!
He's such a little squirt!:- He gets all excited, just because he has this
'ALONE TIME' with Mom

I know that Toffee firmly believes that he is the MAIN MAN; the KING OF THE CASTLE, the BEES' KNEES (I didn't know bees had knees!).

I must say - Toffee's actions are not unlike that of a Cat! Indeed don't you think that he looks similar to a kitty in a puddle?! Well, we just studied this spectacle. We looked on.... Our jaws were on the floor. What a farce!

When Mom finished washing all that #&$x out of him, she grabbed a towel and rubbed all the water out of his smelly self. He thought she was patting him...telling him how wonderful, wise and worthy he was.
He become all whipped up in self-worth!

"Oh... doesn't he look totally pathetic!

We think he looked like some late human ancestor.

Then it was off to the dressing table,
"...to 'blow-dry' him.", Mom said.
Sunlight is, apparently no good enough for the little squirt!...
Just pampering, praise and pathetic-ness!

When all this was over, he stared at us from the top of his pedestal and gloated.
I got all edgy at that stage. I think anyone would!

But NOOOOO.....!!!
His madam, Robyn, reinforced all this big-headedness.

I'll give him his due...he has mastered his "CUTENESS" look!
I am disgusted!
Lots of licks to you all
(except, perhaps, the kitties and the Toffee-look-a-likes!)

Toffee is a real cutie!! You bothlooked sad just laying there on the floor. Maybe deep down you wanted some pampering too?? We got a bath too. Must be the season. Mom usually does it but this time she took us to a spa kind of place.

The Army of Four said...

Oh NO! Toffee, are you OK?!?!?
Max - that's so SCARY! You didn't have to have a (gasp!) bath, too, did you!?! The minute your mom starts thinking about it, run over here! You can hide under the dining room table with me, OK? I'll make room for you! I hope it was just Toffee. I mean - no offense to him, but ohhh, how I hope you guys don't suffer the same fate!!!

Hamish Westie said...

There are dogs that need all that attention to boost their self-esteem. And there are dogs that don't. I think we know which category we belong to, eh?
Cheers! H.

Ms. ~K said...

Strut your stuff Toffee!

Easy for us to say, as we don't have any little squirts in our house! teeheehee!
Hugs and Rubs to all!

Well Max, I gotta say, I really do enjoy my baff time. But there is NO way I would like the blow dryer!!! Nope! I'm not that high maintenance, BOL!

Kisses and hugs

Maxx said...

Madd said...

Hello again...meow.

Toffee looked like a drowned rat in that first picture, friend Max. Almost appetising, a-l-m-o-s-t.

One bath and suddenly he thinks he can sit on my...o-u-r, chair? What a presumptuous pedigree poodle he is. At least we know he's not porky!


Madd said...

Wow, I can't believe I got away with that...Max, you're slipping boy...or are you just used to my usual rubbish now?

It falls to me to keep you on your toes...purr.
