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!

Ina in Alaska said...

We are taking our mom on a big extra long walk today because it is Halloween and we want to be relaxed when the small costumed humans show up at our door for treats. We get lots and lots of hugs every day, just like you, Max. We think you and your Pack are the greatest! Love, Toby, Ginger and Jeter (as dictated to their mom, Ina) xoxo

Dear Max,

Have a good weekend and Happy Halloween!

BTW, we tried to vote for you at DWB but there's no button for us to click.


Hero said...

Max is so handsome and sweet. What a perfect package. Mom especially loves his gentle expression. Snuggling with our hoomans is the best. Most of the time I want to play Play PLAY, but I also love to cuddle with my family. My favorite time to snuggle is early in the morning while everyone is still tucked in bed.

Lorenza said...

Your pal,


ocmist said...

What a lovely poem and it's obvious that your Mom loves you the way ALL doggies and pets should be loved. You ARE just adorable in those pic, too! Mom said she'd love to hug you and run her fingers through your beautiful hair! OK, Mom... so what's with the crack about hair? Mine may be short, but you always say you love my soft ears... BG
