Dad surprised me with a visit from my former family. Former dad needed somewhere to store an rv overnight, so he called dad. When he showed up, he had the twins with him! Guess what--they loved me and wanted me to go home with them. But of course, mom said, "No way! Maxie lives here now!" Even the little girl that I bit told her dad that she loves me. Both the girl and boy played with me. Uncle Mike couldn't believe the dog that I have turned out to be. He said he could tell that I am very happy here.
It was nice to see the kids and play with them, but it was nice when they went home.

Well today is my birthday!! I am 9 years old. This is the first time that I will be celebrating this special day. My old family didn't even remember how old I was or what day I was born. Old mom thought that I was 10 when she gave me to new mom and dad.
I am sure that mom will give me something special to help celebrate me today!! But even if she doesn't, the fact that I have a great day and am loved very much is enough.
This is going to be a really great day for me, and I hope that you all have a great day, too!

Yesterday evening dad was out with a friend and mom was home with me and Buddy and Kit. Yes, she was in the house because it was rainy. She hasn't come in for awhile now because I chase her and she doesn't like it.
The house was very quiet with mom working in the kitchen. I had fallen asleep on the living room floor and forgot that Kit was even in the house. She hides behind the couch and comes out to eat. Buddy was in the bedroom sleeping.
Suddenly, mom's phone rang. It was on the chair in the living room. Close to where Kit was eating. The ring scared the heck out of Kit and she jumped. I heard her jump. I jumped up and started after her. Mom yelled, "No, Max. Stay." I did! Imagine that. Kit went behind the couch.
Dad was on the other end. I don't know what they were talking about, but I heard mom say, "Sure. I'll put Kit out and grab Max. We'll see you out front." Next thing I know, mom picks up Kit's food and shakes it. She told me to stay and told Kit to come. Mom opened the door and put Kit's food on her chair. She went out.
Next mom grabbed by leash and hooked me up. I heard her say, "Be good, Buddy. We'll be back shortly." I don't know if Buddy heard her.
We went out front to wait for dad and then jumped in the truck. We took a short ride. When we stopped and got out, everything smelled very familiar. I was back at Cricket's!
Up the front walk we went. Dad knocked on the door and dad Jim came to the door. I was happy to see him and then mom Jamie came to out! There was Cricket! No twins (thank goodness); they were in bed.
We all went in and visited for a short while. All the time though, I kept going back to my "new" mom for approval. After awhile I was ready to go and sat at the door.
It was a nice visit, but I sure love my new home. It is nice to know that I am welcome at the old place; it is a nice place to visit, but I know I've got it better with Buddy.
