My New Pal, Axel

Terrier Time!

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?)

Great photo and nice to see you making friends. Hey, I don't like every dog I meet either. Nothing wrong with that. One must be careful in choosing one's pals.

Bogart-so glad you got to meet and swim with your new friend, Axel! And that is a great picture-cell phone or not!

Your buddy,

P.S. Parental Unit said that if the treat involved, say, chocolate cake, she would do a bit of fighting too :-)

You and Axel looked like you were having a blast swimming, so nice that you and your Mom both have new friends.

Love your new pal's name. He sounds like he is a macho WFT!! Mama says she remembers a seahorse fountain around there somewhere but probably no dogs allowed. So happy that you found a place to wade with Axel...What a swell birthday weekend.

ps-the photo is just fine!

Well done on your new pal Axel. Hopefully it's the begining of a long frinedship for both you and your mum!

The photo was good...we look forward to lots more.
