Airedale Puppy on An Adventure

My mum found this cute little video of an Airedale puppy goin' on an adventure by herself.  You should watch it but you have to go to the link because my mum couldn't put the real video here on our blog.  Just click here -- right here where the print is a different color -- to see the video on MSN.

I think my mum should get me an Airedale puppy.  I would take her to my sister's farm where there are two goats and we would play and explore.  But we wouldn't need the goat to lead us home because I would do that.

That's all for now.  Bye.

My Nephew and Me

These are photos of my nephew and me.  He's 15 months old now and came to visit with his mom for a few days.  It was interesting having a boy my size around.  Well, he's a shorty so maybe I am still taller than him.... 

Here we are looking out the door together.  Mum forgot to put the flash on so she got these photos that're sort of shadowy.

Here I am looking out the door and Mali is petting me.  He was very gentle to me and I was pretty gentle to him, too.  Mum said I have to be very careful around him because he's a new walker.  He likes to hold little things and really liked my tags but my mum wouldn't let him have them.

My sister was afraid I'd be jealous of him but I wasn't.  I just made sure Mum didn't forget me and that I'm her best girl.

They are coming to visit again for Thanksgiving.  I'm looking forward to turkey then!  How about you?

Roger, the Census Airedale

Some of you may know that my mum is interested in family history.  She looks at old census records a lot trying to find her ancestors.  In case you didn't know, a census is a like counting off except you put your name and age and some other information.  They ask information like name, age, birthplace, occupation, whether married and number of children. It's only for people but Mr. Little, a man in England in 1911, decided he wanted to include his dog, Roger.  (You can click on the picture if you want to see it bigger.)

The people in the Little family are on lines 1-4.  Then, on line 9, Mr. Little wrote, "Incidentally, we have an Airedale Terrier.  I don't know whether particulars are required, but in case you want them here they are."

On line 11, he wrote Roger's information:
He was 5 years old and had more than 100 children.  His occupation was watchdog, he was self-employed, and he looked after the house both inside and outside.  He was born in Keighley, Yorkshire. 

Isn't it perfect that he was born in Yorkshire because Airedales started in Yorkshire!

I wish my mum would put me on a census so people would know about me in 100 years.

I wonder if Roger looked anything like me.

Paper Airedale Blue

My mum goes nuts over paper Airedales.  She has a huge collection of 'em she keeps in a book.  I told her she should start posting her paper 'dales because I still don't like being in pictures (just sometimes I let her take one).

She found this one in Sunday's newspaper.  It was part of an advertisement for Pet Cancer Awareness.  She's sure that puppy is an Airedale.  I think it is, too, because we Airedales are the biggest terriers (we're the King of Terriers, or in my case, the Queen, you know) and that puppy is way bigger than that cat.

So maybe I'll persuade my mum to keep on posting her paper 'dales.  (As much as she loves her paper 'dales, she loves me lots, lots, lots more than them.)

I love my mum, too.  For Mother's Day I let her play with my favorite toy for two minutes.

Bye for now,
from Hannah

Me and My Nephew

My nephew, Malachi - or Mali for short, came to visit for a few days.  He sits up now so he didn't have to lean against me or lay on me and he didn't want to ride me this time, either. 

My mum says I look like a towser in this photo. Her dad used to call dogs who looked a little unkempt towsers.  I don't think I look so bad just because my hair's grown a little long.  My mum clips me in the breezeway and it's too cold for a clip right now - both for her to clip and for me to have so little hair in this cold weather. 

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and got all the presents you wanted.  I hope you get lots of nice things in the new year, too.  Happy New Year.
