MAX of my summer reads....

Wanted to tell you about a book I read this summer. I'm a bit slow at getting to the new releases and this book has been out for a while.  Gotta say I loved it....Anyone who is a dog lover will totally get into this book.
 The author Caryl Moll walks us through her struggles with depression and other life issues. Max the beautiful golden retriever (that was suppose to be her hubby's dog :) became Caryl's beloved sidekick. With Max she was able to overcome a number of obstacles. Max taught Caryl about life to the max.  It's heart warming, it will make you laugh, cry and hug your dog even more. If you're like me you won't want to put it down. You can find it at

So if you haven't read MAXDOG....get it and enjoy the beautiful story of Living Life to the Max. 

You may also be interested in Caryl's Blog, she's writes about her life and adventures in South Africa, you can even check out her African Safari photos from earlier this summer that I found just fabulous.

Hope you are all enjoying your friday...we actually had some blessings today--it was RAINING!  



  1. Hi my friend, Got to tell you I have an autographed copy of Maxdog; she is a friend of one of my closest friends here who lived next door to her in S.A. Caryl is one special lady and a wonderful friend-just like you. Glad you enjoyed the book. You'll quickly find yourself drawn to her posts again and again on her blog.
    Have a great weekend. Hugs, Noreen
