More MAXDOG give-away winners...


Just a short note today...

I don't know about you, but for the past two weeks, I have been glued to the amazing Olympics coverage on our television sets. In fact, our whole family has been riveted.  We've lived on our couches and immersed ourselves in the finer details of rhythmic Gymnastics, synchronised swimming, athletics, mountain-biking, rowing, weightlifting, etc, etc.  

As a consequence, I have turned into a very unattractive couch potato.  Indeed, I think I have grown roots -.much to the disgust of my energetic Toby, lol!  Poor Toby has had to pull off some serious 'Sweet Hooligan traits' and has increased his tendency to carry around blankets and offer them to all-and-sundry.  For two weeks, his hope of distracting us and convincing us of the value of a walk has fallen on deaf ears.  Poor pooch! 

Seriously though, it has been an amazing spectacle!  I would like to congratulate Great Britain on their fantastic hospitality. Wow, what an incredible achievement you guys have pulled off!

 I am also so proud of our own athletes who gave their best and allowed us to delight in their achievements from the comfort of our own living rooms.  

Welcome home
 TEAM SA!!! 
We are so proud of you.  You have reinforced our need to be known as "Proud South Africans"! 


As many of you will know, two copies of MAXDOG were up for grabs in the "MAXDOG GIVE-AWAY" in the June edition of CESARS WAY magazine.  The names of the two winners were sent to me this morning and I had the great privilege of being able to phone them with the good news.  It is always so nice to be able to chat to my readers/potential readers. They both sounded so excited. Congratulations again to:

Dune de Wet (Kempton Park)
Chloe Lynch (Port Elizabeth)

Your copies of MAXDOG are on their way to you and I truly hope that my book will touch you in the same way as my special dog touched me.


Please don't forget that...

Have a wonderful, happy week.

Yeah, I pretty much lost complete interest in the 2012 Olympic games after missing nearly all of Michael Phelps' swims!! I could not stay awake long enough!! However, I have followed this athlete--even though some legal troubles--ever since his first Olympics!! Then, he swam toward retirement.... And I blinked!! :-(
Good job, South Africa!! Oscar Pistoriuswas quite an inspiration, wasn't he? ;op
Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

Big congrats to the winners of Maxdog. The are so in for a treat! We in the UK are all a bit stunned at how well the Olympics went - we were all predicting chaos in London, meltdown of the transport system, bas weather etc etc. And then to win so many medals - it seems that 'home advantage', to have an enthusiastic crowd cheering you on, really does make a difference. It does also seem that it helps to have some black African genes if you want to win a medal at running. All very intriguing.

I find that this pack are very much like kids. When I am on the phone or ignoring them they go into full blown hooligan mode! Good for you getting publicity in Caesar's magazine. Maxdog is really on a roll.
Have a wonderful week.

We have been glued to the TV also and have been enjoying the olympics.
I am sure the sweet Hooligan will get things under control again very soon.
He is too funny and cute to be ignored,
Congratulations to the new winners of your book- oh they will love it!

Congratulations to the winners! Very cool that you personally call them. That is really a nice, special touch!

Toby is so funny! I give him lots of credit for trying! The two photos of him playing are great!

I don't have a TV so I missed what seems to have been a great Olympics. Glad to read that London did such a fantastic job in hosting.
