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!

MAXDOG's CHRISTMAS TRIBUTE

Thursday, April 15, 2010

LOTS OF SLEEPING TO DO...

GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!!!
MAXDOG here...
Hello there everyone!
It's a beautiful, sunny day here in South Africa and it's my...
 68th Day of Grace.
 
As usual, my mornings are very chilled out. Mom is quite busy at the moment, so I basically study her feet and follow her from room to room.  She said I needed a picture of me and my soft toys again (huh?!), so she piled them on top of me while I was snoozing!
For 10 years I've tried to understand these humans....As you know...it's impossible!
 
Well, we also spent some time on the kitchen floor watching her...

Geesh! Does she really have to play with my whiskers when I'm sleeping?...

I did go and check out my garden however...
There's some nice, sweet grass mixed up there...

MAXDOG on a mission...
TAMMY GIRL on her mission...
Yep...the news is still good!

Sending you all lotsaluv for a thoughtful, thankful Thursday!

Max, nothing more wonderful than rolling around on the grass! Ours isn't ready to roll around in yet but it will be very soon! Today is raining and a little chilled but momma says the rain is good for bringing our gardens to life and to tell spring that we welcome it's warming days.

KB said...

I think that my dogs have given up trying to understand the odd things that I do to them while they're sleeping perfectly innocently. Or, while hiking and following intense scents, I make them stop for a photo. They think that I'm nuts but humor me.

You and Tammy are looking awesome, as always!

Anya said...

You are looking great max
Enjoy from the sunny weather ...
Hugs Kareltje =^.^=

I see you roll in the sweet grass and it looks so nice.
