Max’s World Tour Comes to Maggie Valley

Most of you already know our friend, Max of South Africa.  Max has taken many of us dog bloggers on educational tours of his beautiful country.  Knowing Max is ailing, we have invited him to share some of The Herd’s adventures today.

Most of all, Max, we wanted you and your family to know that The Herd is thinking of you every day and wishing you the best.  We would like to invite you to be an honorary member of The Herd:

    How fun! I can’t believe Cheoah got caught in the baby gates again, but maybe having Max around just made her silly.

    That is just great that MaxDog got to visit the Thundering Herd. My mom’s not that computer saavy so we don’t know how to get Max to visit us but that’s a very sweet thing that everyone is doing for Maxdog.
