The Return of Mr. Handsome

Mom came back from London on Sunday. I ignored her for a while eventhough I was thrilled to see her. Humans need to understand that they can't just up and leave us for vacation and not expect us to be miffed!

On Wednesday, Mom dropped me off at Pooches Choice for my haircut. Seven hours later, Mom picked me up and she went into raptures about how magnificent I looked! That's me on the couch taken a few days later. Don't I look handsome? I should for $96!

This morning auntie Lynne picked me up and took me on a 6 mile hike. We had a blast though it is a heatwave here (95F) and I had many swims and dips in water. Auntie was very impressed with my swimming. Afterwards, Mom came to pick me up from Auntie's apartment where I hung out with Auntie's kitty Lucas. Here is a picture of me and Mom taken at Auntie Lynne's place...

Mom, you need a tan woman!

Tomorrow is the annual bike race in Philadelphia and my pal Finn is coming up from Maryland with his parents. I can't wait to see him again!

I sweet boy Axel, I love your cut. We have to cut back a little since the boy came to join us so I wont be going to Poochies Choice as much. We should play some time, mom and dad keep saying they are getting a kiddie pool, whatever that is.

Hey Axel, I'm going to post a story about the SNAX toy later this week. J1 is just being lazy with the photos! I'm afraid it's already history! But it was pawsome while it lasted! Thanks again, pal! J x

You do look magnificent, Axel. I'm glad your Mom found a nice place to take you for your grooming. Mom does us at home most of the time. We look good if we stand still (hard for me to do, though, sometimes my chaps ride sidesaddle when I fidget).

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Great looking dog. If only my friends WHFT's looked like that. They have two mini-whirlwinds but they are wider than yours. Weight loss required.

What top characters though!!

If you get a minute please put some pix on the wuffstuff website at

Hey, Handsome Dude -

Looking good. Your Mom could use some sun ...or that fake stuff my mom uses. She is pretty pasty without it too. You must be pretty busy since you haven't been posting much. Hope you are having a great start of summer!

Your ardent admirer,
Maxie T
