Sunday Sharing To The Max!

Last Fall, Max was kind enough to invite a group of to visit him in his beaWOOtiful khountry of South Afrikha
A khountry which found itself khwite misunderstood and underappreciated fur all it had to ofFUR

BlockquoteA group of us woofed and purred amongst ourselves - we wanted Max to khome visit and see what our worlds had to ofFUR!

It would be our turn to thank him fur the hospitalities he and his furamily showed us!

I took him on one of my patented Khyra Walks so he khould see my neighbourhood! I even pointed out many of the 'off the normal path' yards I had khrossed during my Sunday Skhare The Poop Out Of Mom Romp! He was khwite impressed I had khovered all that terrain BUT he did give me a stern woofture about NOT doing that again.
He said he khould tell how much my mom loves me and he khould also see how much I love her SO I shouldn't do THAT evFUR again.

We spent some time under my tree - pondering life and skhwirrels and love and reality and UBUNTU of khourse

Max was furtunate enough to be here fur some of my snow! Now all of woo know why I was hoping and dreaming so furry hard fur more snow. I wanted so much fur Max to get to be One With The White! He said NOW he understands why I think it is so freakin' KHOOL: bekhause it WAS khool on his fluffy tail and jodhpurs!

He even got spend some khwality time with Khousin Merdie too! I always tell Merdie about Max and share his blog posts with her as well!

We spent much of our time reminiscing about my trip to South Afrikha where I got to meet some furry special khytties!

As all of woo know, my mom and I are believers in fate, kismet, and serendipity. Well, when Mom and I worked on this post, we felt all of those forces BIG TIME when we saw the blog title fur the post I've linked to with my khat pikhture: Maxdog Contemplates His Reality.

We all know what our reality is...that we won't be here furever...we've been reminded of that in the past few days with Kirby, Wally, and Poppy/Penny/Patches we have to 'Live Like You Were Dying'

Thanks fur sharing your wisdom Max...thanks fur khoming to my khorner of the world in Pawsylvania!

You are one furry special furiend and all of our lives are so much the better fur having woo in it!

Happy Valentine's Day EvFURRYone!

Thank you too, for letting me share your special tree and your snow. This tour is the first time that I've ever experienced snow.
Thank you too for allowing me to curl up so comfortably with you and Merdie (...and for our special visit to all your Mom's friends too...Uncle Paul et al!)
You have all been so incredibly hospitable and have really allowed me to contemplate my reality BIG TIME! You are such stars!
On this Valentine's day, please let me say....

Oh Khyra, how sweet what everyone did for Max...this is why I love DOG bloggers above all others.

Happy Love Day,
