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:

May God bless you and thank you for following me!

(You can click to biggify and see all the wonderful faces of the pups & kitties involved)

Dear friends

It is with extreme grateful thanks to ASTA for all her long and dedicated hours of hard work that we give you a group picture of the participants of


on Valentines day last week.

It was an absolutely amazing experience for everyone! 42 bloggers took part and put up blogposts of Max visiting their homes, cities and countries!!! It certainly was a day to remember! (If you haven't yet visited all those bloggers, please click on the link, grab a cuppa and sit back and enjoy!)

I would like to credit ASTA's mommy in every possible way I can for this superb effort!!!

She has given us all the opportunity to put this picture on our sidebars (if you like) to remember that special day.



Lots of licks

We see lots of our friends in the photo montage! Asta's mom did a great job on it, we are sure this took lots of effort. Well done! She and Petey's mom helped us with our Max Tour pictures. We also thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

We hope Max and his loyal Pack and you and your family have a wonderful day. xoxo

Max is probably the first dog to be so honoured in cyberspace. It will enter the canine history books.
