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...
(I haven't forgotten that it is supposed to be 'wordless' Wednesday!
...sorry about the words!)

A SOUTH AFRICAN MALL (at Christmas time..now!)...


LOTS OF zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's


Tanuki Maxx said...

The mall looks so festive and colorful!!
Thanks for sharing it with us!
As for the cuteness pose, SCORE!!!


kks said...

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Cuteness is it!!

Barb said...

Hi Max. You are THE cutest dog in the world. You can tell Toffee that he is not too bad either, but don't let it go to his head!! Lots of hugs and pats.

Mango said...

Too much cute! I feel faint.


Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

Actually, it's TUESDAY today, so you can be as wordy as you want! As for being cute, you win every award going!

dewdana said...

Is it Wednesday in SA? We double checked that it is tuesday here in the states! That was a whole lotta cuteness though. I went into a mall the other day (something I never do) and almost freaked out because of the crowds! I am sticking to shopping online. :-)

Tucker, Daisy and Leo said...

Way to work the cuteness, Max. You are obviously a pro.

Chester said...

I've taken notes and I'm gonna try to be as cute as the Masters of Cuteness but I don't think I'm ever gonna get it. You both have cornered the market.
Speakin' of markets-that mall market looks just like ones we have here in the US. Not that I would know but Mom tells me they decorate them here. She useta go to malls but now avoids them and shops elsewhere because of the crowds.

You can go back to sleep now-I know I'm gonna!
Chester ;0=)

MAX said...

Hey everyone
I am so grateful that at least 5 others also thought is was Wednesday! Oops....my mistake, but a funny one at least. Whew! who thought I would be blessed with an extra day!!!

KB said...

A cuteness overload. I may be immobilized by the cuteness of it all. My husband just looked over my shoulder and said that Max reminded him of our favorite Golden ever, a girl named Tess.

I've thought about trying to do Wordless Wednesday on my blog but I seem to be genetically incapable of leaving out the words!

I never thought that I'd find such warmth and support through the blogosphere when I started my blog. But, 'meeting' dogs and people like you has been a huge pleasure. Thanks for the support that you keep sending my way. I still think of you, knowing that you certainly aren't 'over' your recent loss yet. But, you have the cutest dogs ever to help you!

ScrapsofMe said...

Hi Max, you shopping Malls look like ours at Christmas. No heavy coats, no mittens or gloves to keep up with, people in shorts and t-shirts, all the joys of shopping with no personal baggage to manage. I was wondering if it was a trick post, maybe the 'almost' meant 'almost' Wednesday?

I think you guys gots the corner on being cute. Did you go to cute class or something?


Andrea said...

You are a sweetie!

The Thundering Herd said...

Whoa - certainly an overload of cuteness. Are you all trying to be good for Santa or something?

We would tell you those pictures look like our malls, but we never go into malls. Nor do our humans. Weird, huh?

Nika + PARKER said...

You are confusing us. It is Tues here in Canada...a snow covered sunny day. You sure have a lot of cuteness in those photos though. Christmas shopping I haven't started.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

So much cuteness! And the mall looks really pretty all decorated for Christmas. But the cuteness is more fun!

Dream Valley Ranch said...

Hi Max and company...cuteness indeed! What adorable pictures!!! I hope all of you are doing well...tell your Mom that she is in our thoughts...we think about her all of the time!
Sending monster hugs!

YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Yes, lots and lots of cuteness!

SGR said...

Woof! It's only Wednesday. LOVE the CUTENESS. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Hamish Westie said...

Hi Max
That last picture of you asleep on the sofa is just the best. A picture of perfect contentment (and cuteness). And don't you have a fine tail!
Cheers, H.
PS I know it's a bit impertinent to complain about comments that other have made on your blog, but I would be most grateful if, next time you mention the World Cup, you could make it clear to your American friends that the USA will be playing ENGLAND, not the UK (not that I'm a chippy Scotsman or anything, of course.....

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

What a treat to see all those cute faces. Thank you so much for giving that to us,

Bunches and bunches of cuteness going on!!!


Angus said...

Once again Toffee excels in the cuteness stakes - what an angel !

ocmist said...

Yep, you are right! Lots of cuteness in THIS post! Toffee is cute, even if I have seen him be a bit ornery. Mom says I'm cute to, even though my name is Ornery Cuss (OC)
