Do you all remember this guy in the picture below? That's Captain High Pockets (aka Mick or Michaelangelo)! Some of you may remember that he lived with us for a while back in March. He is a really great Aire-boy, but he was just too big for our pawrents to handle. Sadly, he went back into Airedale Rescue. He has lived with an ex-marine and his two large Aire-boys since about the middle of March. We know he had a good life running around like crazy with his pals, but Mom has been very worried that he would never find his forever home. Well...(drumroll please)...he has gone to live with a great family in the Atlanta area. They have children ranging in age from 8 to 18 so he will have lots of lovin' and playmates! We are sooooooo happy for him!!!!
This picture, below, is Poppy doing what she likes best. She's sucking on her soccer ball stuffie and making lots of weird Aire-noises. Mom freaked out the first time she did this, because Mom thought she was in pain. Turns out, she wasn't in any pain...she just likes to suck the ball and make strange noises! Her predecessor, Pockets#1 did it too and the first time Mom saw and heard her, she called Pockets' breeder to find out what was the matter with her. The breeder told her that she didn't know why she did it, but her grandmother did it all the time too. Penny has never done this, but Poppy does it quite frequently and now Patches is starting to do it too. Maybe it's an Aire-head thing!
Patches is still trying to rule the house from her perch, high up on the guest bed. She hasn't had anymore great escapes, but she has worn herself out playing bitey-face and zoomies! She has put on enough weight that you can't see her bones anymore, but her hind quarters are still a little weak. That doesn't stop her from launching herself off the bed to land on top of some other unsuspecting doggie!
Mom has been trying to get a good picture of all three of us together, but so far, this is as close as she has come. She got Penny's and Patches' faces, but only got Poppy's butt! I guess she'll just have to keep trying! It sure is easier to get pictures of us wheelies!
