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!

OMdoG OmdoG... those pics are so cute!! Max, you made our mom go 'awwwwww'.. :)

Hmmm.. we are guessing that it is not your bed right?

Anonymous said...

Hi Max - Saxy and Obi here. Best you tell your Mom to buy you a new bed? We Danes each have our own 'human'-sized single beds, although we prefer to sleep on Mom & Dad's Queen-sized bed until they want to go to sleep - then hmpfff, they toss us off!

Abbey@Pink Daisy Designs said...

I love that second last pick..Chels has a toy to sleep with, even after she finally destuffed it, little more than a rag now

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Hi Max! I'm Scottie...nice to meet you! I don't think I have had a friend in South Africa before, so I'm really excited to read more about your lovely country through your blog =) Congrats on being nominated for the Awesome Blog Award!


The Army of Four said...

OH Max! You look sooooooo cute all snuggled up with your toys like that!

The Thundering Herd said...

Quite a collection there. We are always impressed with toys, because we can never seem to keep any around here.

And the bed picture is really cute. Not hanging out at all, huh?

Mango said...

Max! You know how to respect your stuffies for sure.


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Does your mom know there is a giraffe in your house?

PeeEssWoo: The pikhs are WAY khute!

Ina in Alaska said...

Sweet dreams, Max and giraffe...zzzz

Emma Rose said...

How sweet. We just want to snuggle with you Max, you are so cuddly looking. But that bed is a might bit too small for you my friend!

Tucker, Daisy and Leo said...

Miley said...

Cute pics, Max!! When your ready to de-stuff those stuffies, let me know and I'll be right over to help!! BOL!!!

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

OMD Max, you are so stinkin' cute!!! My mom is going crazy over those pictures!


Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Woooos Max! I think you are cute all curled up with those stuffies... but I would have ripped the head off and de-stuffed it already!

Tanuki Maxx said...

Wow Max! even your toys are of the same range color tones, kool!!


KB said...

What heart warming photos. Max loves his giraffe - that much is obvious. He snuggles and snuggles and snuggles with Mr. Giraffe. Thanks for a smile.

Anna the GSD said...

OMG, how did you fit in that puppy bed??? I'm impressed my friend!

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Time for a bigger bed Maxdog. Need room for you and your toys. :)

Sam & June

Deborah said...

Hi Maxdog! Your stuff animals are too cute! My dogs have a bad habit of tearing them apart!

Petey said...

Max, you are one big baby! Does Tammy know this about you? We laughed out loud at that last photo. Sure hope Toffee and Tommy were safely sleeping elsewhere when you took over that bed!

Your pal,

OMG those pics are sooooooooo cute!!! But I think you might need a bit bigger bed LOL.

And Dory's smiley fest has opened!! Please check out my blog on how to vote for Patachou!! Really stiff competition there!!
Thanks :)

Chester said...

I wanted to go vote but I can't figure out if I belong or not. Too many passwords to too many different places. Hrrmpfff!

I love your pics with you and the wonderful stuffies. Do you not destroy them? I do. RRRrrrrripppp! Then I pull the guts outta them and spit them onto the floor.

Good idea with the small bed-no body can invade your sleepin' space.

Chester ;0=)

SGR said...

Woof! Happy Wordless Wednesday. I think you need a new bed. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh Max, you look mega cute in those pics with your toys.
We take it you are in someone else's bed!
Good luck with the Awesome blog - it is a pity you cant vote for everybody.
We confess to having voted for Huskey and Hershey cos they have soldiered on blogging in the face of real adversity this year.
We know you will both get great places anyways.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxxx

Dog By Nature said...

Maggie and Mitch said...

What sweet pictures of you and your giraffe, Max!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Max! I want your giraffe stuffie! (Actually, my human does too - she LOVES stuffies and used to collect them but she's had to give that up since she got me coz I keep nicking them and de-stuffing them!)

But hey - you look a bit squished in that bed!!

Honey the Great Dane

JD and Max said...

Oh Max - you look so contented, we adore these photos as we DO so love to see a happy doggie! Snug and sleepy - sigh - what more could a doggie ask for?! We're with Honey - we want that giraffe stuffie too, he he he!

Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Augie and Ti's mom said...

Those are some pretty fine toys, Max! And that last picture is priceless!

Anonymous said...

Oh MaxDog, I just LOVE your giraffe stuffie! It is so very realistic for a stuffie.

But I gotta say, the left over bed I have is bigger than yours. Dude did you make a mistake and fall over into Toffee's bed? Please tell us that is not your bed?

Hugs, Tessa

Benny and Lily said...

Did Mr Giraffe whisper something in your ear that you didn't like? I see you took care of that and made him go nite-nite
Benny & Lily

The OP Pack said...

YOu were right, Max, you are the king of stuffies and you treat them royally!!! Great photos.
