Max the POO Dog!

This weekend, a new foster dog arrived on our doorstep. He started his travels in a Bakersfield shelter:
 The last leg of his journey found him with the fabulous Judy, foster mum extraordinnaire:
 You can learn more about his transport and arrival here. The current pit stop is my home:

As you can tell from the video, we've named him Max (aka Maxwell) and he is loving, smart, fast, wicked-fun and has an obsession with shoes.  We suspect that he is a Jack Russell Terrier and Poodle mix, otherwise known as a Jack-a-Poo. (Poo-dog.  Hehe. Almost too easy...)  CL already believes that he will be an outstanding agility dog.  Me?  I'm just looking forward to thwarting CL's exercise regime with early morning antics!

p.s.  Why Maxwell?  He reminds CL of her favorite war rat from her Delores/Hannah YA Fantasy trilogy:
(sigh...horror authors...I almost feel sorry for Max...)

Meet my long lost twin!

It's no surprise that she can ride a bike-- FMD females are smart hussies!

The report is still out on the males, however...seriously, would a female FMD allow this? Or, hold still for this picture?
Ah, Wild Dingo...we know we can visit you at, any day or night-- but we miss your local antics...!
