Now, I weigh about 45 lbs. and I am turning into a gorgeous 'dale. I've been eating lots and lots of good food and treats and I also get Salmon oil with every meal. I also get yogurt on my breakfast and some bone, skin and coat supplements. I am soooooo glad I ended up here at Airedale Heaven! Not only do I get really good food (and LOTS of it), but I have 2 really great playmates! I am healthy enough now to get spayed. That will happen on September 29th. Mom says it's a good thing, but I'm not so sure. I guess if I survived almost starving to death, I can survive getting spayed too.
Mom and Aunt Wendy went to a dog show, on Saturday, without us! They saw lots and lots of other doggies and we sniffed Mom for about a half hour when she came home. She bought this little Airedale purse at the dog show. She had one like it before, but she washed it and the colors ran. She was very excited to see the same vendor at this show. She uses it to keep her money in when she goes yard sale-ing. It has even caused her to meet a few Airedales that she didn't know were in people's houses. By the way, they saw 11 Airedales at the show! Woohoo!
She also bought this crystal with an Airedale inside of it. It was really hard to get this picture because it's so shiny that the flash kept making it so you couldn't see the Airedale. This guy is going to live in the china cabinet with PorkChop and some of the other wheelies.
We also want to show you some of the different wheelie frames that our dad has made for our mom's wheelies. Now, people who order wheelies can have a choice of what kind of frames they get.
We have to apologize to Maggie and Mitch! Before our mom went on vacation, they gave us this pawsome award and Mom intended to post it right after she got home. However, being that she FORGOT for like two weeks, we are posting it now. Sorry, Maggie & Mitch! We are supposed to tag 5 other doggies, but since it was so long ago, we figure everydog has probably already been tagged. If you haven't been, you can consider yourself awarded by us. We wanted to use the card to buy food and treats for all homeless doggies, but Mom said it's not that kind of card. Darn! We're sending a big THANK YOU to Maggie & Mitch, anyway!
It has been raining, here, since last night and it is supposed to rain for the next four days. We hate to go out in the rain, but it sure makes our pawrents happy. Well...all except for all the red mud that we will track in! Now that Tropical Storm Fay has gone past us, we thought all we were going to get was lots of wind, but we got fooled! In the past 3 days, our mom has seen two of our neighbor's trees fall down. She heard a loud cracking sound and then boom! There went the trees! We're sure glad none of us were near them!
We have an update on the wheelies that were aire-lifted from the murderous jaws of Apache. Paco is on his way to a full recovery and Pierre was taken off life support, last night. Now, he's in critical condition, but his prognosis is very good. He's expected to make a full recovery in the next few days. They both have to undergo several transplants, but we expect them to be good as new, soon!
Well, everybuddy, I'm off for my morning nap!
