With Apologies to the Famous Artist

The Wire Yahoo Group is running a contest to feature a Wire Fox Terrier in a famous painting. Mom went to work immediately and came up with this...the little known, Surrogate Mother of Whistler:

I am NOT amused as that is ME in the picture! I am a boy first of all, and second of all, I don't think I look good in a bonnet!

Ha ha! Axel, you never looked prettier! Poor Axel, I'm sorry but I just couldn't resist. Actually, your mom did a really good job - you may win the contest! (I guess you wouldn't like that, huh?)

Your pal,

I need to acknowledge that the photo of me was taken by Finn and Mackie's Mom Melissa at the Dog Show two weeks ago. It was the perfect profile shot for the photo.


PS I would like to win!!

Hi Axel! Thanks for visiting our blog and I do love to make new friends!

Don't fret Axel, my mom does bizarre things like that to me, too. I just abide, as I believe she is turning senile. She is quite daft.

I hope you win! I am pawing for you!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said... still's probably will win!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Um....Axel...u better go back to our blog. Unless ur playing poker with Scruff. Mumsie sent ur pic to half of her inbox...this came back from Big Bruvver...who thinks we're all crazy. Obviously, he's as crazy as the rest of us!

Lacie...Pee Ess...check out my new earrings.

Hey Axel...Mumsie loved ur photo sooooo much that she peemailed it to everyone of her friends or family who might actually appreciate it for its true terrier value. Big Bruvver makes fun of Mumsie's fox terrier obsessions at times...(that's when he's NOT asking for $$$$$$)....but he sent back the photo (unasked) of Lacie with a pearl earring....we were rolling on the floor...what she didn't post was the absolutly horrible pic of me stuck in the middle of the Mona Lisa's face...crooked, I might add...once Mumsie gets her photo shop for Christmas, she's gonna put Bruvver's face on the top of a Great Dane....

Hope that clears up ur confooosion....did u win????????
