MAXMOM here...

Hello there to all my friends across the world.

I came across a blogpost today which is too hard to ignore.
I would like to invite you to visit this blogger, but first some background...

As you know, by now, this blog has a maxim of:

This means that I/we strive to make every day an amazing one.
In a world that is hurting, it's sometimes hard to do this, but there is always something positive around us to observe or read about. 
We just have to look for it!

  For this reason, I have always been moved by the amazing achievements of people around the world - especially ones who remain positive in the midst of life's pressing issues. Some of these achievements may appear small, but to the achiever him/herself, it can be lifechanging. I am in awe of this blogger and I send out my

I don't want to spoil this blogger's story, so I'll merely ask you to visit them, to read their story and to offer them a comment.

It's a story of an amazing new beginning...



It's been a cold, chilly weekend, with pouring rain yesterday.  Toby and I decided to take a 'rain check' and to rather stay at home instead of going to his CGC class.  Sometimes it's good to take a break, so yesterday was it. 

I spent my time, making a few additions to this blog... 
I draw you attention to the two NEW pages which I have added to this blog...

Instead of a blogpost today, I invite you to scroll to the top and to visit these two pages.
The 'videos' page is a record page, where you can access all the videos we have ever pasted up on this blog.  They are rather fun and show Toby's progress from a small the amazing young dog he is today.

Wishing all my readers a wonderful Sunday and build up to Easter.

I read Mimi's blog & the post she did about her hubby's weightloss is just so AMAZING!!! Thank you so much for sharing the link with us. I love inspiring stories like that. I usually will have tears of joy.

I also enjoyed reading The History Behind This Blog page. It's great! Both Max & Toby have such handsome faces. What's their breeding?

I will check out the Videos page in a short while. You have a wonderful Sunday too!

Mum and I both enjoyed your two new page. Toby looks so comfy in his crate, that we can see why you both didn't want to go out into the rain!

Sending you lots of love and woofs,

The last photo is just beautiful! The love shines through.

Checked out your two new pages, very nice! Really like the story on the history of your blog. Max was an incredible dog and his Spirit lives on. Toby is the perfect successor to Maxdog!
