Max had a friend over. A kind of cousin really, by the name of Argyle Braveheart.
He goes by “Argie” and is a Cairn terrier. (Max is a West Highland White terrier.)
It took a couple of days for Max and Argie to kind of get acquainted.
Max talks to Argie a lot about how much fun it is to chase a ball, but Argie prefers to chase Max chasing a ball than to chase the actual ball. Max is still trying.
At home Argie has his own urban apartment but he’s had no problem spending a few days in a wilder part of the wild west.
With two dogs it’s not breakfast no it’s some kind of empty-the-bowl race.
Max and Argie like to inspect all around outdoors for tracks left in the night by tigers and bears and squirrels.
Between the two of them…
…they don’t miss much.
But after a while they get tired.
Argie has to go home today. We’ll miss him and we’ve asked him to email us now and then. He says he’ll be back to visit soon.
