Tonight I went to my sons softball game like I do every Thursday and of coarse Axel was in tow. Now my sons are grown, 27  and 24 so this is an adult league with families. Just a great atmosphere and a fun way to spend the summer. Well this little boy about 4 came up to Axel with a softball and asked him to play fetch. I mean he went up to him and talked to him like he was a person. It was soo cute. Anyway I said Axel would love to play with him. There is an area about 50yds in length and about 20 ft wide and fencend in on three sides so its absolutely perfect to play fetch. Before you knew it there were 6 little kids, and I mean little compared to Axel and they all had so much fun. The parents of the kids were no longer watching the game, instead Axel was the talk of the field. One of the kids would throw the ball and he would run after it, drop it or he would let them chase him and then drop it. Then he would put his front end down and wait for the ball to be thrown by these little kids. I wish I hadnt left my phone in the car. I really wish I had brought a video recorder because it was the sweetest thing and it was so spontaneous. I had parents telling me how he was so good with little kids. The funny thing is I have never really had to correct him that much when it has come to kids. I mean, hes around my grandkids, but hes always had a special thing with children. Anyway, I just wanted to share my wonderful evening with you all.

Aww how sweet <3  Wish you had the cam, I would so love to watch that.  I can't trust Koko to do things like that yet, he's too jumpy still, and would knock over little kids.
