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!

(Day 11)
Max continues to plod on. Still very sleepy. No real change except that he left half his breakfast this morning. He's comfortable and relaxed. Thanks for all the thoughts, prayers and well wishes.
Yet another blogger has added a wonderful post to Max's WORLD TOUR. This brings the number of participating bloggers to 42. Please go and take a peek at 'Max at the Olympics':

Hello Max buddy!

How are you today? We had a bit of rain and it was kind of annoying because my Missus refuse to let me soak myself on mud.

Take care and will check on you soon!

Please ask you mom to plant a kiss on your nose and also a big bear hug to you from us.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Sometimes I am not good with words,
At this very moment
there is touching
thre is holding
there is burring your face into the soft fur,
there are words of love
being whispered
into furry ears,
there is listening to the sighs of accepting the love.

My thought are with you every second-prayers to remain pain free, and to continue to feel the love.
my love to you

Lexi said...

Hi Max,
You are looking good today........you are in our thoughts and hearts.
Lexi and mom

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

BowWowzer! We visited so many of the websites that had your WorldTour featured that we got dizzy!! Hootie could have sworn that he saw you in Phoenix at SkyHarbor Airport. Said you had on sunglasses and an entourage of pooches carrying SCUBA gear & skis & all kinds of sports stuff. Then there was a bit on the news about you hiking the Grand Canyon. Could it be? Probably true from all the pics we've seen! Hope you're resting comfortably now Max.

The Bumpass Hounds said...
