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!

Hey there all my furry friends!
Something is in the air!!!

Yesterday I got YET another bath...!!!

Mom got me in the tub again and scrubbed and scrubbed!!!

When I eventually got outside, I could feel that something was/is in the air!!!

You see, I don't need computers to tell me the news. I sniff it in the air!

I read Pee-Mail!

...and I watch and speak to all my feathered friends!

This little Cape sparrow told me that he is also getting his nest in order (using my fur - by the way!) because....he's getting extra company TOO!

This African hoopoe said that we all have to look our best (That's probably why Mom washed me!?) and be on our best behaviour. One can expect guests at any time and one must be prepared!!!

The red-billed woodhoopoe suggested that we get more dog bones so that after they are demolished, he can pick out the insides. He said we should just leave the bones when we are done and he will finish them off!

...and Tammy's favourite bird - the Hadeda Ibis - stayed a while to tell her that she won't be in our garden for a while, because she has heard that there are a number of dogs going to visit us and she's scared of being chased.

So you see guys, a birdie has told us that we are to expect visitors!
I don't know when, but then again, we operate on African time!
I'll just climb into Toffee's bed and ponder this news.
But perhaps, if you want the full story, you should visit Mango's blog!
Him and his buddy-dudes seem to know a lot more than me.
Lots of licks
ps Maybe my readers can also tell me what's up???
Should I be worried???

Hi Max and Tammy!

No need for a barf bag, pal, I'm an excellent flyer! Been jetting around the US since I was 10 months old (well, between NYC and South Carolina!). Looking forward to nibbling some biltong, boerewors and sosaties! Let's not tell the ladies what the the grilled mashonzhas are, shall we?

See you soon!

Your pal,

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Martha said...

We are sorry about the bath! Those bird pics were absolutely amazing! The african hoopoe (hope we got that right) is stunning.
We have heard from Mango and Petey that you are all having an adventure - we cant wait!!!!

As long as woo (Lacie) know (Lacie) who (Lacie) doesn't hear about it we'll be okay!


The Adventures of the LLB Gang said...

Sounds like you are in for a ton o fun!!


The Army of Four said...

Oh, NO! A BATH!?!?! Are you OK, Max!?!? You didn't get brushed, too.... did you? That is so horrible! (But you DO look VERY handsome!)
Your birdies are all very interesting. Does Tammy like the Hadeda Ibis? I have a favorite birdie (the Killdeer) and a not favorite birdie (the pigeon). I have no real reason for not liking pigeons other than that they used to torment my great-brother Booter when he lived in Korea and he told me about it and so I don't care for them. Killdeers are very cute, though. Do you have a favorite birdie?

Clive said...

Do you really get all those birds visiting your garden??

Got washed myself yesterday and none to happy about it, I can tell you!

Sounds like you are going to have a very busy few days!!

lots of woofs

Paxton said...

Hi, Maxdog! Gosh, what is it with our Mummies that they feel the need to bath us regularly. You look all nice under the soap-suds. My hair does not foam like yours, though. So far Mummy has washed, dried and brushed me inside the house because of the cold weather.

I must agree with all your other friends here, one is never happy about getting washed but, Boy, oh, Boy, do we feel good about ourselves afterwards!

Enjoy your visitors. I am really enjoy having my Nan here!

Love your bath pictures and the incredible birds....nothing like that here in So. Cal!
