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 here....

After a wonderful Sunday snooze yesterday, I checked what it looked like outside...cool!

This time, Mom was not going to get away with it!!!...


Our humans can very seldom resist our demands and this time the
WHOLE PACK went along.
TOFFEE, TAMMY, MAXDOG and even TOMMY (our old boy!)


"Group Sniff!"

"New growth on the fir tree!"

"Lichen on the bark of another tree.
(This is good news because this stuff only grows where there is a lot of oxygen!")

"A rose on somebody's rose bush."

"The sunset on the highest palm tree in the neighbourhood."

"An African Hoepoe...on the pavement.
(This guy is very shy, so he flew off very fast when he saw us coming!)

"THE MAXDOG: showing my interest in the other pooches in the neighbourhood!
(the other dogs are behind their gates!)"

Well, it was a really wonderful walk...just what we all needed after a 'couch potatoe' sunday!

Now I will grab my ball and wait for a willing participant!
Have a wonderful day!
Lots of licks
ps. If you missed my SCORPION POST below, please take a look!

Hi Max! I enjoyed so much watching you all walking together.
Can I come and play ball with you???


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

YO, Max!!!!

Oh, we had such a nice walk along with you guys!!! (Wasn't Mango's comment typical about you guys all being blond...trust him to notice....frankly, I'm not speakin' to him since he's dating that Pumpkin girlie....why her and not me?)

Um...the scorpion walk was a little creepy...see, we terriers pounce on anything that moves...I had to totally contain myself to keep from attacking one of those creatures...but they were pretty...gotta admit...

Loved ur mom's comment to the Special Wire's Wheelie Boy....



Tweedles -- that's me... said...

We love you
thank you for being there
