Giving Thanks to a beloved furry friend is not unusual for pet owners.
My mom always thanks me for being a part of her life, as I provide her strength and inspirations.
She thanks me for my Golden Joy, Compassion, LOVE and Life Lessons.
This week, mom read a book titled MaxDog and reminded her of the above quote. MaxDog is written by Caryl Moll, a bloggie friend and mom of Golden Retriever Max from South Africa.
In the beginning, Caryl did not want to have another dog but her husband did and got Max as his dog. Eventually Max became Caryl’s dog. Max provided Caryl his golden healing paws as she was diagnosed with anxiety and depression.
For sure many of you believe that owning a dog provides benefits and not limited to the physical. Many dog owners enjoy superior self-esteem and suffer less unhappiness due to an optimistic mindset that companionship with animals instill. That was exactly what Max provided Caryl. Truly a special irreplaceable gift.
Max also inspired Caryl to rejuvenate her love of writing, wherein she found blogging as another medium. The Adventure of Maxdog evolved in blogland as a dog blog. We were bloggie friends, enjoyed reading Max’s adventures and learning about their life in South Africa.
Caryl and Max also learned about many countries from their blog friends around the world.
Max at 10 years was diagnose with cancer. The strong bond of the dog blogging community provided Caryl and Max with the “Power of the Paw.” From this event, Caryl turned their blog as an inspirational accounts of Max’s final days. They were given overwhelming love and support of Max’s bloggie friends. The dog blog community was sad when Max passed away May 24th 2010.
Caryl Moll wrote MaxDog as a tribute to Max and share the love they experienced. Caryl wrote the MaxDog in a very detailed matter. It’s broken down in several chapters. There were familiar writings particularly if you are a follower of MaxDog’s blog.
We give MaxDog by Caryl Moll 4 Golden PAWS. We thank Caryl Moll for providing us a copy of MaxDog. We were not compensated to do this review. MaxDog is available in Amazon in both print and kindle edition. Caryl continues to blog, Living Life to the Max.
Carly Moll surely has lots to be Thankful for Max.
We are Thankful for being their bloggie friends.
