Hannah's Birthday

We would have celebrated our Hannah's 14th birthday today if she were still here with us.  She's been gone 9½ months and I miss her so.

She was my nearly constant companion.  Every room, every coming and going, every morning, afternoon, evening, and night remind me that she's there instead of here with us.

How I wish Hannah were here!  Hugs and Happy Birthday, sweet girl.

Linda Ronstadt with Two Airedales

This video has two Airedales who appear several times. Watch for them!

I tried to learn whether Linda owned Airedales of her own but haven't found any information to support that.  I love that she takes both 'dales with her as she walks toward the aireplane.

Christmases Past (When Life Was Merrier)

Hannah loved Christmas.  She loved helping everyone open their gifts as much as she loved opening her own.  And after the gifts were open there was always the paper to shred!  And it's true what they say:  Life is merrier with an Airedale terrier.  These are photos from Christmas, 2014.

"It's my gift.  I will open it!"

"Oh, this is such fun!"

"Look what I got!  I love these squishy toys!"

"Let me fling it around by myself, squish it between my teeth, and then maybe I'll invite you to play tug."

"Oh, another gift to open."

"See my long-tailed, squeaky toy?"

"But I think I like the squishy, stretchy toy best."

"What?!  No, I'm not giving you one!"

"They are both my new toys and I'm keeping them, thank you very much."

How I missed buying gifts for Hannah and having her help me open gifts this Christmas!
