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!

(A big apology to my earlier readers for giving them a fright! Big "sorry!")

Hey Max - would you like Saxy and I to come over and help you with those zoo animals! They would be extinct within the hour! (Obi the Slobbery Dane)

MAX said...

Awwwww Obi & Saxy
I was having a nice warm zzzzz!...and you woke me up!

Cocorue said...

WOW that's a mountain BUT i could pick you out anytime, anywhere MAXI

from your full of S#$%^ friend bol.....


Stella said...

Well, Max, if there is a boat to be missed, leave it to you to miss it!

I have never in my life killed a stuffee and only this one time in support of Martha and Bailey. And you tell me you're never gonna loan me a stuffee!


Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my God!! I had such a fright when I saw the title to tihs post...thank goodness it's only a joke@!!!!

Thor said...

Are you playing hide and seek, Max?? I wanna play too!
Have fun with your stuffies! =)


Mango said...

Sheesh Max, you scared the crap out of me. I thought you had been eaten by that band of evil stuffies. Be careful dude. Do you still have a body or is just your head left?


The Thundering Herd said...

To rid yourself of that horrible case of stuffie-itis, we recommend a Herd of Siberians. No stuffie will be left unstuffed.

Somehow, we are thinking you love your stuffies though.

kks said...

oh Max, i was so worried and then i found you!!
soooo cute!

Chelsea + Shiloh said...

Aweee that is too cute Max...x

Tucker, Daisy and Leo said...

Max, are those yours, or your Moms. If they are yours, Daisy is really jealous.

KB said...

I love it! What a good dog, staying still with all those toys on him. My dogs would have wriggled out of there and started playing with the toys in a split second!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Whew!! Don't scare us like that again!!

We must say that is an incredible cute photo though.

Tanuki Maxx said...

Hey there Max! Wow! you sure have loads of stuffies there!! Can i come and play with them? probably take me forever to get there...!
Thanks for sharing those very very khute pics!


Jake of Florida said...

We got scareded too -- but then we saw you peeking out from that fabulous stuffie collection. And then our Mom got very jelly at your having all those bears while she has only a dozen (!!) or so.

We're not allowed anywhere near them because we are Stuffie Killers, aka terriers!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos! Stuffies! I am with the Herd, I can de-stuff all of those in just a couple of minutes! Then you will be free!

He is soooo adorable surrounded by all those toys :)

Emma said...

Lexi said...

Hi Max,
You are so lucky to be laying in all those stuffies. I love stuffies. My favorite one I have is a duck that squeaks. It is my second one because I pulled all the stuffing out of the first one.
Mom and I love reading about where you live. We think it is a great idea to add that. Have a fun day Max.

The Army of Four said...

Max! MAX! Where are you?!?
Hee hee hee!
I could come over and make REALLY short work of those stuffies for you. :)
Ammy AKA, The Jaws of Steel

Hamish Westie said...

What a totally brilliant picture!
You are such a good dog Max.
Cheers, H.

The OP Pack said...

Aww, Maxx, you ARE a great guardian of the stuffies. And man, do you have a lot of them!!!

You should really send that pic in to Mack and Sally Ann's bear contest.

Woos, the OP Pack

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

OMD Max, those are the CUTEST pictures!!! And on another note, you sure are patient! No way I would let mom pile stuffies all over me, dude. BOL!


Hoover said...

Hey Max,

He He I wasn't scared. I know stuffies would never hurt anydoggie. That is a great picture. It makes me jelly. I don't have nearly that many stuffies. I guess I might if my cousin Gryff wasn't always tearin um up.

Emma Rose

Jan's Funny Farm said...

The title scared us. He looks cute at the bottom of the pile.

Clive said...

Max, we just loved that! Reminded us of many years ago when we put a three month old Murray on the bed with a whole load of teddies and took a very similar photo!

Murray laughed to much when he saw the photos today - he loved finding Max!

Thank you so much also for your comment earlier - we copied it and emailed it into the two Government Ministers. Much appreciated.

Clive and all the family

KK said...

What an adorable picture of you with all of those stuffies, Max!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Barb said...

Oh Max, you are SO cute under all those toys and you are SO well behaved to just stay there and let your mom smother you. Not many dogs would have allowed that but I know you are well trained so I guess it has paid dividends. I love you to bits now so wait until I see you!! You'll wish that I would just leave you in peace!

(( Ms. K )) said...

You blend in so well!

Anne-Kathrine said...

OH wow you do have plenty of stuffies!!!

Dog By Nature said...

OMD Max!! We have never seen so many stuffies in one place...not even in a store. That's quite the collection you have!

Piappies World said...

Hi there Max,

That's loads and loads of stuffies! How do you manage to take care of them?! We could hardly have 10 stuffies since we tend to rip them apart. Princess really looooves your collection.

Perhaps you could share some with Toffee? Uhmm... well, you need not decide right away. It's just a thought. =)

Augie and Ti's mom said...

Oh my gosh! These are the funniest pictures EVER!

ocmist said...

Mom says that was like a Where's Waldo book! We thought it was funny AND cute! I'd sure love to get my teeth into a couple of those stuffies!!! BG

(And so would the puppies, I'll bet!) Dott
