Now, I have to tell you all about our second trip to Athens, Georgia. We went over there so our mom and Aunt Wendy could meet even more peoples from the Airedale Rescue Group. There were 4 more ladies, there, that we had never met before. It's very nice to know there are soooo many great peoples that helps doggies just like me!
You probably don't remember this big guy! His name is York, he is 13 years old and we had a picture of him in our last Athens post. Then, he was very furry and curly. Now, he has a new Aire-cut and he looks great! Even at 13, he's always up for beggin' for food! In fact, at one point, we all left the deck and when we came back, York had "shopped" Miss Barbara's sandwich and was chowing down on it. He ate every last bite!
This is a little white doggie who is an honorary Airedale. Her name is Maggie and today, for the first time in her life, she got to taste FREEDOM! Maggie is an escape artist so she always has to be on a leash, but today, since the entire property is fenced, she got to go off-leash. Woohoo, Maggie! She has an Airedale sister named Abby who is 10 years old. Abby visited with us, too, and we thought we had a picture of her, but we can't seem to find it. Abby's just as afraid of the camera as Penny is and Mom's flash really scared her. My mom is very sorry, Miss Abby!
In this picture, York was on the other deck, watching Maggie and Jagger. Sorry, but we never did get a picture of Maggie's sweet face. Everytime Mom thought she could get a good picture, the stupid delay thingy, on the camera, waited just long enough for Maggie to turn around!
Maybe you remember this boy from our other post. His name is Luke and our mom really would like to dognap him! He's an apartment-sized Airedale and he is soooooo cute! It's very hard to get a good picture of Luke, too, because he is moving constantly...kind of like Poppy!
Here's Jagger taking a rest. He was a very good boy, all day and some of the peoples gave him little bites of food when they ate lunch. Jagger and I went on lots of walks together!
This is me, Patches. Mom said I was a very good girl, all day! Yeah, I was foaming at the mouth because I was sooooo excited to be there! I was more relaxed, this time, since I had been there once before. See how nekkid I am? My dummy mom didn't bring my regular collar and she was afraid I might get hurt if I kept the prong collar on all day, so I got to go nekkid!
This is a Aunt Wendy taking a picture of my mom while my mom took HER picture. Silly humans! Rocky and Jagger are chillin' after many sessions of bitey-face.
Here's Rocky, on the left, and Jagger, on the right during one of their muzzle wrestling sessions!
In this picture, Luke got into the act so Rocky, Luke and Jagger all played bitey-face. I was sitting behind the camera, by my mom's feet. I played a little bitey-face too, but I didn't get caught in a picture.
Jagger is waaaaay bigger than the rest of us 'dales that were there, but nodoggie seemed to be afraid of him. He's such a sweetheart!
This is Rocky, Luke and Jagger again. I think they were hoping someone would drop some food from the sky.
Our last picture is Bucky. Poor Bucky cut one of his paws, very badly, so he had to be sequestered from the rest of us crazy 'dales! He has to have a few more days of rest before he can rejoin his brothers in enjoying the large wooded area of their temporary home!
We had a really great day! There were 7 of us 'dales there, including Bucky who couldn't play with us! There were 8 peoples there and all the ladies had a good time talking about us Aire-pups! We sure hope we get to do that again, someday!
Well, everybuddy, I'm off to take my 343,789th nap of the day! Yesterday was such a busy day for all us pups, that I slept all the way home in the Aire-mobile, slept most of the evening, last night, and I'm still napping today! Maybe I'll be caught up by tomorrow!
Patches (and Poppy and Penny too)
