A visit to remember

The pleasant visitor is Maxdog.
A few months ago, Maxdog had taken the world tour to visit all of us before he crossed the Rainbow Bridge on May 24th 2010.
Is it a dream or what, today he's here with us again and enjoys the breathtaking scenery of Texas state flower Blue Bonnet. He leaves this message for all of us:
Please don't cry for me, I have lived my life to the Max and will continue to do so. Now I fly free, pain free and being happy forever.
He touches our hearts again!
Max' Mom, this post is dedicated to you and your beloved pets. Thanks for encouraging my mom to take Mom and Me pictures
Hello all the sweet Moms in blogging world, Mango's Mom here, at last!
Until next post, cheers!

What a grrreat tribute to Max.

MAXMOM said...

Thank you so much dear friends!...
It is wonderful to see how "mum" has emerged from shyness to do this for us!(The original Mom and me photo of you guys!) Thank you so, so much!
I wonder how many people realise what it has taken for you to post this? I still hold onto the original picture because you asked me not to reveal it (because you were shy). This is such a gift!
Thank you again for your beautiful tribute and for being our friend!
With love

Huskee and Hershey said...

This is a beautifuuuul tribute to Max! Indeed... we should all live life to the MAX!! Max's mom also inspired us to do the Mom and Me photos which we posted not too long ago, and we are now inspired to do it more frequently!

Psst, can we please have a close-up of your mom for your next Mom and Me photo?

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

That is a great tribute to your friend, Max.
Nice to see your mom! Great pic with the bluebonnets.
Mango.....my mom has been sooooo busy, we have hardly had time to blog. What am I to do?
Happy Memorial Day!

Nellie and Calvert said...

Mango, who knew you were such a sentimental type of guy. We love this tribute, very fitting.

Our mom really lost it when she found out about Max, and then Sammy passed on from Schnauzer Sisterhood (http://schnauzersisterhood.blogspot.com/) let's just say she cried a lot that week.

Belly rubs to you and congrats to your mom for emerging from her shyness... I'm guessing your outgoing personality is rubbing off on her.

Paws-out

Tessa the Maltese said...

Oh Mango's Mom, we went to Autumn's website like you suggested we do.!! Jasmine is a very lucky girl!

We read your comment to Jamine's Mom and wanted to let you know that it is not to late to notify AKC about the DOB screw up and not the puppy they bred. Also if any doubt let the Animal Protection league in your county know that the breeder may be a puppy mill!


We just love Mango! He is such a sweetie!

We look forward to seeing more of him!

Hugs, Tessa

Asta said...

Mango
I went to Autumn and Jasmin's and left them my love. i hate gweedy howwibull hoomans like the puppy mill people. I know little Jasmine will have a bootiful life wif hew new loving home.
I feel bad that I can't help theiw mom financially. I hope she manages.

thank you fow sending me
smoochie kisses to all of you

Asta

Autumn the maltese said...

Dear Mango's Mom,

Thank you so much for the support that you gave me. I'm glad to know that I have people behind my back to support me as sometimes I was thinking if what I did was a wrong move. But now I believed that I did nothing wrong by bringing Jasmine back home with me.

Thank you so much for the love you gave for Autumn and now Jasmine. I appreciate it so much =]

Love,
Autumn & Jasmine's Mom

Honey the Great Dane said...

Hi Mango - sorry it took me so long to return your visit. How lovely to see the family photo with your human at last!! I don't know why she is shy - she is so pretty and has such a lovely smile - she should definitely be in more of your photos! :-)

Slobbers,

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Thanks for letting us know about Autumn & Jasmine. People like that breeder shouldn't be allowed to have animals. We hope things will work out well for all of them and Jasmine will be okay.

Aksharaa said...

Hey Mango,
we are back from visiting Autumn and Jasmine. How utterly ,terribly horrible things humans do. how can they bear to keep a lovely, sweet little girl like that locked in a cage, we cannot imagine.
we are very very happy that Jasmine has a mummy now who wil love her.
and of course, all her bloggy furiends ill always be there too.

Santa and Minnie said...

Hi Mango,

Sorry that it took us so long to come by. Our Aunty Diana needed time off from bloggerland when Christmas's pups came along and then the passing of our Grandma (Aunty Diana and Mummy's Mum).

That's a great picture of your Mom. She should have more pictures with you, she's such a beautiful lady. Hope to see more of you and your Mom.

This is a really great family picture!
