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!

Hi Max
We loved your post. You made the point so well. These humans are too busy rushing round shops like mad things - they miss all the gifts right beneath their noses!
Oh well, they can't help it - they are only human!
love and kisses

What are you sniffing at, Maxdog? Whatever it is, I'm sure it will make a wonderful gift!

Sam said...

Hey Maxdog! I thought I would add one more comment... Since we have had all sorts of internet issues I have not had an update on your tumor... I dug through the old posts and was quite relieved (we thought a lot about you here in Sam's house!) to here that it wasn't serious. We wish you many more happy and healthy years in South Africa. Our thoughts are always with you!

The smile with the giving is the best part of the gift. Max, you look so pleased and happy, just waiting for the smile right back to you that says, "Thank you, Max. I love it. It's perfect."

Thank you Max. We love it. This post is perfect.

Sometimes humans just don't understand these kinds of things! Of course, it spoke to you, but it didn't talk very loudly, so you had to get down close to hear it! OC

ocmist said...

Oh... we just read Martha and Bailey's post and it was so beautiful... such a wonderful thing to think about and remember to look at the little things right under our noses! Your post DOES illustrate that beautifully! Linda
