Happy New Year to YOU and Happy Bloggaversary to US!

Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! It's us, Patches and Penny! We sneaked the picture above when our mom was down in the basement in our dad's workshop! He always said he could tell when she was down there! She never has figured out HOW he knew, but he DID!

On Christmas Day, we had the first White Christmas in 125 years! Even our mom had to agree that it was beautimous! That's only because she didn't have to drive in it! In the afternoon, she went to our neighbor's with the Puggy guys and the 2 new hooman pups. (They have doubled their weight since birth). She ate dinner with them and then went across the street for dessert with our other neighbors. We thought it was really nice of all of them to invite our mom! Unfortunately, no one invited US! I guess that's okay 'cause we had loads of presents to unwrap and play with on Christmas morning! We had so much fun that we slept all afternoon!

Our other neighbors came home last night, so our mom is done taking care of their animals. They even moved the froggies back to their own home! We sniffed them, but we couldn't get near them at all!

Sunday will be our 3rd Bloggaversary! Woohoo! Three whole years since we started our blog! And we're still a loooong way from 300 posts! You can blame that on our lame personal secretary! For some strange reason, she seems to think that blogging isn't the MOST impawtant thing to do! How are we supposed to keep up with all our buddies?

Happy New Year to everyone! We know a lot of our pals have already celebrated the new year, and a lot of us will be celebrating later tonight. Let's all stay safe and don't shoot off any fireworks! I'm just sayin'....

Merry Christmas!

Hey, every buddy! It's me, Patches! I managed to get my personal secretary to sit at the computer long enough to translate what I am barking. We want to wish a very Merry Christmas to all our pals who celebrate it! Oh, and a Merry or Happy Whatever else you might celebrate!

Our mom taking care of a kitteh and a bunny rabbit that live across the street from us! She goes over there twice a day! She puts the kitteh in a crate about 6 p.m. so she can be nice and warm in the garage. Then she goes back at about 7 a.m. to let the kitteh out and feed her and the bunny. There are 2 froggies that she is feeding too, but they have moved over to OUR house! We told our mom that she could just move the kitteh and bunny to our house too, but for some strange reason, she's not going for that! Gee, I wonder WHY!

Well, I guess that's it for today! Whatever you are celebrating, we hope it's very happy and FUN!!! Thank you to everydoggie that send us Christmas cards even though we didn't sign up for the exchange. Our mom got the cards out of the closet, but that's as far as she went this year. Maybe NEXT year!

Look what WE got!

Hey, every buddy! It's me, Patches! I just couldn't wait to show you what our mom bought for us! Okay, he's not REALLY for US! His name is Digger Dog and he's very talented! When you press a button, he barks, wags his tail, kicks one back foot and then he farts up a storm! It is just tooooo funny! Sorry there's no video, but our mom's 32 bit camera won't upload to our 6 bit computer! What a rip off! It's probably a good thing she can't do a video because all you pooches out there would probably try to tear the speakers out of your pawrent's 'puters! We go absolutely nutso when she presses that white button!

Mom bought Digger from a lady at a yardsale. The lady was from Ukrain and she told Mom that she and her husband bought Digger in some other country. They actually bought 2 of them and when they brought them through customs, the customs peeps didn't want to let them go. Not because the Diggers were suspicious or anything. They were just having too much fun playin' with them! Our mom promised not to list him until Aunt Wendy gets to see him.

I sure hope the rest of you are having better weather than we are! Right now, it's up to a whopping 21 degrees with a wind chill factor of 3! Mom wants to go out for a little while, but I don't think she's gonna make it! We have snow flurries in the aire and we feel like hibernating!
And THAT'S not even the worst of it! Tonight, it is supposed to go down to 13 degrees F! I thought this was supposed to be the SOUTH!!!!!! Even those of us wearing fur coats don't want to go outside for very long! Mom is talking about buying me a coat or sweater or something. I just had my latest Aire-cut last week, so although I am very beautimous and aire-o-dynamic, I come in shivering every time we go out! I might get that coat and keep it on all the time! Due to the shock that our mom got from our last gas bill, she has dropped the thermostat down one more degree! I know it doesn't seem like much, but we have a pretty big house so she's doin' whatever she can to keep the bills lower than the national debt! Holy moly, it's only 66 degrees in here! We can't even have a fire in the fireplace 'cause our mom had the fireplace replaced by a big box window. Hey, maybe we can start a fire in the window!...or NOT!

Well, every buddy, that's it for today. I'm going to go snooze with my nose covered up!

There's a lady looking for an Aire-girl to adopt!

Hi, every buddy! It's me, Patches. There is a lady, in Florida, who is desperately looking for a female Airedale to adopt. She is willing to travel to pick up the doggie! If anyone knows of a female 'dale around 2 to 4 years old that needs a home, please e-mail me (or leave a comment on our bloggy).

Now, back to my regularly (or NOT so regularly) scheduled posting! Yesterday, I spent the day at the spa and I think I got every treatment they offer! It poured down rain all day, especially when Mom was dropping me off and picking me up! What an ugly day! The rain is all gone now, but we are still running through mud in the back yard. Good times! Our mom doesn't think it's very funny! Today, it's really windy and the high for today is only supposed to be 43 degrees F. Tonight, it is going down into the 20's so I might have to borrow mom's winter coat!

Well, everybuddy, that's it for today! Don't forget...contact us if you know of any 2 to 4 year old Aire-girls that are looking for a home!
