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!"

ANOTHER GOLDEN DAY...and TOFFEE update...
Greetings from South Africa!!!
I'm sorry I'm late in posting but it's been a pretty hectic day here.
This is MAXDOG's
45th DAY OF GRACE!
We woke up to overcast weather here in Johannesburg, South Africa...
...and to a very rattled little ...
He was shivering and distinctly uncomfortable...
So I quickly got my act together and piled him into the car and drove off to the Vet...again!
The Vet gave his little paw a thorough clean and looking over... again!
(I think I'm becoming known as the neurotic doggie-mommy)
It seems that TOFFEE was also reacting adversely to the particular cream which we were applying. After a thorough wash and drying off of his paw, a new bandage was applied over a 'betadine' gauze pad. This time it's a long lasting, sticky bandage which needs to be kept away from dewy grass.
We will be back at the Vet on Friday for another check up of his paw.
The good news is that
is feeling much better with this new arrangement!
The dreaded satellite dish has been disbanded and he is feeling a lot more like his royal self...
In addition the Vet has asked that we "attempt" to keep him indoors at all times...
(This photo was taken during a 'wee' break!)
I don't think he has many problems with this "indoor" recommendation at all!
He is certainly a lot more comfortable and I can breath a small sigh of relief.
(I just HATE it when my animals are ailing!)
The rest of the animals are all well.
MAXDOG is looking remarkably well!...
He had a good meal at supper-time and then demanded his evening walk.
I am constanty amazed at his resilience, strength and joy of living!
TAMMYGIRL is also looking wonderful!...
So whilst I went about my busy day, the two 'love birds' enjoyed each others' company...
Just another GOLDEN day...
with my wonderful animals!
Take care and lots of love to you all! MAXMOM IN SOUTH AFRICA
