My special day wiff MAXDOG!

My dear friend Max from South Africa came to visit me during his world tour! I was so excited!!! The love and joy and friendship and inspiration Max and his mom share through his blog mean so much to us. We love them very much!

When Max got here, I had to show him my yard. First, I taught him how to snowwalk. Look at him, he's a natural!

Then I showed him how you can stick your nose down into the snowy weeds and sniff to find some enemy mice. He didn't seem as interested in dis activity as I did. In fact, he just smiled politely and nodded.

Guess what happened next - WE CAUGHT GIGANTOR THE SQUIRREL!!! Teamwork, baby! That's what I was missing, it was too hard to catch him on my own, I needed my buddy Maxdog to help me! BOL, I look hungry...

We had a grand time playing outside. But soon we were cold and tired and wanted to come inside and rest before Max had to continue on his tour. It was wonderful to snuggle wiff my dear, sweet friend before he had to go.

Max was a little skeptical about the snow here at first, but he got used to it. Looks like he really enjoyed walking around there with you. Snow-walking - love that term. And we are so jealous that you two caught a squirrel, what a great adventure for you and Max!!!

Happy Valentine's Day.
