I have no idea what to think. You'll never guess what I came nose to nose with when mom let me out of the house Friday night when she came home from work. Stumped? Another Wire Fox Terrier of all things. He was a tiny little guy, dressed in lots of matted and stinky hair. Mom put a leash on me and one on him so as to grab us should any fight break out, but things worked out okay. Then mom scooped him up and into the basement he went. I knew what was in store for him because our wash sink is down there and out grooming table is too. It was just a minute before I heard the familiar sound of the clippers going. The little dude was getting a hair cut..heheheh! Serves him right for getting anywhere near my mom while he was stinky and needing a bath. My dad always jokes that a dirty dog doesn't have a prayer around mom. It won't be but a few minutes before mom scoops it up and washes it.
Anyway, he came back upstairs with a new haircut and smelling good. He was a skinny little thing under all that hair. Mom let us outside and the little brat decided he would try to mount me. You see he still has his, ahem, nads and he thinks he's hot stuff. I tried to tell him I don't work that way and that I am HIS boss. He was really getting on my nerves, but I kissed the little fella and welcomed him to our home. Mom and Dad are calling him Ajax because my grandpa called me Ajax once and mom thought it was cute. I thought they called him that because mom used about a whole bottle of cleaner to get him clean! hehehehe!
Anyway, so little Ajax is here until mom can find him another permanant home. He's a nice little guy and wants to pal around. I don't mind him except when he gets near my mom. She's mine darnit....paws off.

Ps....everyone, please dont forget to vote for Dean-O! again this week! The contest is close!

Ajax is pretty cute! I am hiding his picture so my muzzer doesn't see it! I am liking the idea of being an only dog for a while.

Hey lover-boy,

We voted again for Dean-O today, paws crossed we can keep him in the lead and win this thing !

Give your mum a big lick from me - she is a very special lady for helping doggies in need :-)

Glad you are being nice to Ajax too - wouldn't expect anything less from you :-)

Your gal (shared with Sunshade, of course !)

Here's my Mom looking through the papers and internet for a lil wft, and one just walks up to you! Chance, fate, whatever, my Mommy seems to think he should stay with you guys!

I get my baths in the bathroom, there is a sunken tub Mommy & Daddy hate so I get my baths there. Nice and warm, kinda hard to escape....I hate baths tho! It's after the bath run around dog lightning dog dry offs that are fun!

Hi Mackie,
You could call Ajax 'Mr. Clean', like the commercial, hehehe! He is a skinny little boy isn't he? I bet he would make a good buddy. We voted for Dean-O already this week. Sure hope he wins!!!
Wirey Hugs!

I can't believe you bit your Mom while fighting with Ajax. Shame on you Mackie!

Don't worry Mackie - we saw Ajax on Petfinder. He is sure to be in a furever home soon!

Dear Mackie,

Maybe Ajax is doG's delivery to you?? I was thinking about you the other night and I was worried that you might be lonely (because I'm not there), so I asked him to send you a little playmate to play.......

Yours only,
Miss Sunshade
