GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
As I watched the sun rise earlier this morning, I knew that we were going to have yet another beautiful day in paradise. The doves are cooing, the skies are cloudless and the gathering heat is spreading across our city. It is a 'Sunday' in all the senses of the word. At least the trickling sound of our water-feature offers the promise of a cool-off later. A quick dip into our swimming pool is guaranteed to erase any sense of discomfort.
The event was organised as part of the launch of the South African version of 'Cesar's Way' magazine. The proceeds for the entire event were donated to various animal charities and shelters. There was a strong presence of 'Animals in Distress', 'Claw', 'Ark', 'Wag' and a number of other charitable shelters.
"Wherever MAXDOG goes, let it do good!".
Thank you, so much, to my husband - Les -- and to my special friend - Lorraine - for helping with the stall and the sales yesterday. Thank you too to the Humphris family for bringing Hoby (guide dog in training) to visit the stall too. It was lovely to see you and I really appreciated your visit.
Unfortunately Toby had to stay home (he still has his stitches in) but Aunt Tam made a guest appearance at our stall during the afternoon. It is so wonderful to have a dog, like her, who is happy and well socialised, and can be left off lead to mingle with people. She doesn't venture far from us nowadays - probably because she is ageing - but it was heart-warming to see her so happy and having fun.
I want to say thank you to everyone who came around to visit the stall yesterday. Thank you to those who took the time to sit down and share their own story with me too. It is always a unique privilege to meet my readers and hear how MAXDOG has affected their lives.
If you would like to read a blogpost that has really touched me yesterday, please click HERE. This is a UK blogger (and new MAXDOG follower) that I've not come across before. She puchased the ebook on Friday and is singing its praises. I happened to stumble upon her special post and was quite teared-up when I read it. Thank you to CHARLENE AND STORM, for your heart-felt review of my book. It's great to know where MAXDOG is making its journey.
Sending lotsaluv to all my friends around the world (and to all the new readers of this blog too). Enjoy your weekend and remember always to: "Live life to the Max!"
