I was quite surprised when mama didn't take off my harness after the morning walkie today - could there be more excitement to my birthday weekend? YES INDEED.
The handsome guy swimming next to me is Axel - he's a Wire Fox Terrier - and today was our first meeting. His mama lives here in Philadelphia too and apparently my mama was excited to meet her and put us together. I don't get along with every dog I meet, sometimes I like 'em and sometimes I don't. But Axel and I got along like a house on fire (except for one little argument over a treat - but that was minor and over in a second).
We went for a swim in a lovely pond near the Art Museum while the mama's talked. There were donuts and dog treats and lots of laughs.
I am sure that we've both made a new friend and that we'll be seeing each other again really soon! Take care of your mama Axel till we see each other again!
(PS - cell phone photo, but not too bad, eh?)
