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!

Hello there to all my unpresentable furry friends!


MAXDOG here...

In support of the current strike action, initiated by


I have sorted TOFFEE out and have taken back my blog!

This is my photo of solidarity against all actions of the 'flashy beast'!!!

Calling all Canines to unite in this worthy effort to tell our humans of our frustrations at always having to endure their photographic pursuits!

Lots of licks

Welcome back Max...you look very happy all wet:)

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Max, you are looking very assertive there!
Glad you got your blog back but perhaps you might consider sharing with Toffee.
This used to be Martha's blog but has evolved over time!
We are just loving your little basset!!!
Thanks for the support.
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxxxx

Hey Max, I missed you. My mom is always taking our pictures here. You know, sometimes I just don't want my picture taken.

Dogs unite.....



You think you have problems? We won't even go there!

You should let toffee out and then go hide and take a long nap!

For some reason, humans think malts luv the flashy box???

Wish we could hide.

Max you are such a gentledog, I can't imagine you being upset about anything. I think that Tofee is just in need of a nap every once in while. Your pictures are doing well.

We stand woo-nited in this cause! And it's NOT just 'cause the Basset Babes are so gorgeous. Well... OK, maybe that has something to do with it...

Max, you are beautiful even when you are all wet - love that expression on your face.

Stella said...

Yea and hooray, Max! A great wet picture with eyes closed, couldn't be better. A great way to support Martha and Bailey!

The Basset Babes started this plan but I hope we allll finish it. We just don't want our pictures taken ALL the time, so we are gonna, wiggle, waggle, close our eyes, move our heads, and walk away from the camera! I killed a stuffee in protest! Me, who has never killed anything! Lets all just get behind the Bassets, the Army of Four and all the rest of us who are in sympathy!

Piappies World said...

Hi Max,

That's an adorable protest photo! oops... doesn't sound right.

We are still working on the uniting of our world to support Martha and Bailey. There are just some of us here who loooove the flashy box. Well, we think we did succeed a bit last Halloween. Isn't it a wonder that our mommy has not posted our Halloween Parade photos yet. hihihi

Ms. ~K said...

Toffee is so cute!!!

Hope to be home in a week!

Comrade Max
I have decided to join the strike. (Especially since I got a haircut last week JUST when the weather turned cold...)
Red Hamish.
PS Promise I won't side with Toffee any more too.

Emma said...

Wet is great! Did you swim? You look so happy.

Here's a trick to keep humans away: get wet and then go to them and use them as towels! Shake vigorously too!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Max!
Good boy supporting Martha and Bailey!
I need to work on that too!
Kisses and hugs

Anne-Kathrine said...
