Next stop of Max's World Love Tour - Hilton Head, SC!

Hooray!!! I'm the next stop on Max's World Love Tour - he's like Santa Claus! Circumnavigating the globe in a single day, but instead of bringing presents, he's bringing loads of love with him!

I knew we'd only have a little time to play here on Hilton Head Island, SC before he'd have to head off to his next destination, so we quickly grabbed our favorite toys — his frisbee from Irish Guide Dogs that NSLM and Clive sent him and for me, my rubber tennis ball, natch! I must say, we two could be the poster boys for the game of FETCH!

Then we went for a bike tour of the Island, stopping to say hello to my pal Harley the Clydesdale! Sorry Max that I don't have a bicycle built for two and you had to do most of the work!

We ended the day down at Harbour Town, watching the sunset over the Calibogue Sound and Daufuskie Island. I pointed out the famous Harbour Town lighthouse — Mom remembers when it was built when she was just a kid. If there are any golfers out there, the Heritage Golf Tournament, the week after the Masters, is played down here and they show the lighthouse alot!

We were hot and hungry after our long bike ride, so we indulged in some delicious ice cream.

Max needed to get going on his way, so we made just a quick stop by our apartment in New York City to say hello and "Happy Almost Birthday" to Mica. He suggested we take a catnap before Max headed over to see Asta, just a few blocks away.

Max, it was such an honor to be able to share some of my favorite places, toys and foods with you. I'll never forget your World Tour and look forward to seeing you again in South Africa.

Safe travels, Maxdog!!! We love you a whole lot!!!!

Petey, you were able to show Max so much and to share so many special times with him! We KNOW he must've loved his romps on the beach. Best of all, we are sooooo glad he got to stop by and check on Mica with you. That rest on the couch was just what he need to prepare for the next leg of his trip, and we're sure that Mica was happy to see the two of you! This has been a wonderful World Trip!

Love ya and just a wee bit jealous of those romps on the beach (and that ice cream!)
Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo

We LOVED Max's trip to Hilton Head.

The NSLM got very excited seeing both you Petey and Max on the beach and that Max had his frisbee with him! Thank you so much!

We loved the ice-cream photo too and we've emailed the 'golfer' in Spain to make sure he reads your blog this morning!!

Thank you Jane for this great idea for Max on Valentine's Day and for all the work you put into it!

Wishing you, Petey and Mica a very happy Valentine's Day!

lots of love
Clive and the NSLM

MAX said...

My dearest friends!
...so YOU are the SOUL of this INCREDIBLE EFFORT!?!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
...after 16 stops I am finally with you!
When Mom logged on this morning she was TOTALLY GOBSMACKED!!!..she hasn't stopped grinning, smiling, laughing, blurry eyed with tears and overwhelmed by this incredible feat! What an amazing demonstration of global love...

I LOVED romping on the beach with you, Petey! That icecream was delightful - in the sunset and ambience of all this...beautiful picture!

I don't know how to give you enough THANKS for the joy you have brought into my household today! Thank you!

May this also be as special a VALENTINES DAY for you as it is for all of us here.
With lots and lots of love and licks,
MAXDOG IN SOUTH AFRICA

HI Petey
Well that was pretty smart of you to get Max to do the pedalling I must say. I guess that's the advantage of living with a Photoshop genius!
Cheers, H.
PS Tell you Mom, big big thanks for the photos of Max and me!

Twinkietinydog said...

What an upbeat and perfect in my opinion post. I had to go all fancy and take him to GR (ooopa, Mom). I'll stop by later to become familiar with your blog. I have lots of Max stuff to take care of.

I am most envious of your lovely beach and weather! I should have shared our bicycle with Max, but maybe he wouldn't have liked pedaling around on a pink bike! The ice cream is making me hungry. I think I need to go find a snack!
