Bike Race Brings Friends from Afar

Guess who I met today? Mackie the Sock Eater's Mom Melissa, Dad Steve and nephew! They came all the way from Maryland to meet me, and oh yeah, to see the big Bike Race in Philadelphia which is taking place right in my park! And noone even asked if I minded! What's up with that?

Anyway, Melissa and Steve were very friendly and gave me many pats and admired my head of all places. They also brought me a gift - a squirrel squeaker toy! How cool is that? People bearing gifts are always welcome to visit me.

Funny to think that last week this time I was at Doggy Day Care and Mom and Dad were doing a jig at their wedding. Mom seems very tired this weekend, she's been sleeping an awful lot - guess she has some catching up to do. I am happy to report that the wedding room has been restored to my computer room and I can come and go now as I like! Woohoo.

Yesterday morning Bailey the Boxer and Sasha the Akita had a bit of a fight. Sasha is always on leash, but Bailey kind of went for her and ended up with a bleeding lip. I never saw Bailey this morning, I hope she's okay - I tried to visit with Mom yesterday, but noone answered the door.

I think I better go downstairs, Mom is behaving weirdly - she's yelling at the TV! There are these odd little men in different colors running around on the screen chasing a ball - something called the World Cup Soccer. Being from Africa, Mom seems to enjoy this "sport" - she's yelling "Go Mexico!" and saying less than flattering things about Iran. Meantime, Dad is fast asleep in bed with the TV parents sure are nutty.

Hey Axel!
We would love to have you visit us! Our house is sparkling now because my grandmother from Florida will be visiting!

You can visit us in Arizona any time. Tika and I have a great time despite the heat.

Dear Ax,

My mom and dad came home yesterday and told me they met you and your mom and dad in Philly. They said that they had a great time and that they really enjoyed meeting you and your folks. Where was I? I was at grandma and grandpa's house. It was good there too, but I wish I had gotten a chancce to meet you guy! Mom said you are very friendly and that I would enjoy romping with you. Maybe someday we'll get to meet and play around- okay, wiry buddy?
Oh, and tell your mom that she hasn't seen big until she sees me- I'm the king of all terriers!
Hope you like your squirrel!
