Life to the Max Pose of the Week: Amber Vamps for Halloween

October 28th, 2009 by Robin Reynolds

In the spirit of the season, we offer Amber in her vampire “costume.”  It’s really the only way to dress an Airedale Terrier–with Photoshop!

She may be dreessed for Halloween, but she'd bite Krissy's head any day!

Life to the Max Pose of the Week: Models of Style in Pet Bandanas

October 22nd, 2009 by Robin Reynolds

We are so excited because we have been working on some new products to go along with our award-winning book, Life to the Max: Maxims for a Great Life by a Dog named Max.

As some of you know, last year we introduced a Live Life to the Max pewter pet tag, which is now for sale in Max’s store for just $4.95. These same pet tags retail in stores for $7.50, so it is great way to add a little bling to your fur babies without breaking the bank.

Last month, we also added high-quality Maxim postcards based on some of the Maxims featured in our book. These cheerful postcards are a perfect way to pen a quick note of encouragement or support to family and friends. You can buy them individually for $1.50 or the assorted set for $12.00.

Now in the spirit of holiday dress-up. we have just added Live Life to the Max Pet Bandanas! For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you know that last year, I wrote a tongue-in-jowl piece poking fun at pets who got outfitted in ridiculous costumes for the holidays. But now you can dress them up and still maintain their dignity and yours–as Amber shows you here:

Amber is modeling the large, red bandana!

This holiday season may be a little tighter for many of us, so this is another way to give your pet a little style without a huge investment–as Krissy points out!

Krissy is modeling the medium yellow bandana. The small bandana is also yellow.

Any size is just $3, so you can’t beat that for style and price! Makes you want to get a jump on your holiday shopping!

Watch our blog and store because soon we will be offering a holiday gift pack that will include many of these products along with the book!

Life to the Max Pose of the Week: Out of Reach or Just Beyond Our Grasp

October 14th, 2009 by Robin Reynolds

Robert Browning once wrote, “A man’s reach should exceed his grasp,” but what about this from a dog’s perspective?

As you can see here, surely Krissy grasps that that this is her bone just inches out of her reach, but should she risk her comfortable position to grab it? What if it’s not as good as she thought it would be? What if she should fall on her head?

Right now many of us find ourselves in new positions with the things we wanted to achieve just out of reach. How we grasp the situation now may be limiting our success because we can only see things one way. Should we stretch a little farther and risk falling on our heads? Maybe a little fresh perspective is good for us and maybe it all depends on how badly we want it.

Life to the Max Pose of the Week: Yours Is Better than Mine!

October 7th, 2009 by Robin Reynolds

Sometimes I am amazed how much dogs are like kids.  Krissy is so much of a little sister–always pestering Amber, trying to push in front of her and coveting whatever she has. You can see what I mean in this little series with their bones. They both have exactly the same bones. but Krissy isn’t satisfied. Thank goodness, Amber is so easy going!

Amber just moves over and takes Krissy’s bone. Is someone a little baby, Krissy?
