Everyday we walk a lot, several times a day. So, we are out and about a lot, me and my mum. Mum loves me, of course, but she loves flowers too!
Of course we meet a lot of flowers, in our neighbourhood, city or not! So me and mum got the idea to make a fototoot of me with the flowers. I like toots, surely with a lot of treats and when i am in the mood, I am very good in it.
I even can stay off the leash while pics are taken, city or not. I will not move untill mum tells me so! And yes, I am an airedale! A very well behaved grandma lady airedale! Stubborn though, sssstttttt… but not for fototoots! Afterwards I need naps, of course! I am 10,5 years old, after all.
So, I proudly present you… me, myself (and mum somewhere) and the flowers… Enjoy the pictures!
You know that my mum is in the crocheting business! Last week she was crocheting with red and white. I asked her what she was making: a little house… ?? Well, we will see!
When it was finished, she showed us… Mum, really, this house is way too small for me and sissie! Not for us? Yes, we already have our benche-houses… But who is it for?
For gnomes? Wait, I have to explain to the française, she is not a grandma yet, she does not know what a gnome is… will you help me? That is good! 🙂 Mum got the crocheted gnome and showed Lizzie… from far away… she might eat it…
And then we made this nice fototoot before the gnomehouse…
The toadstool, Kita, the toadstool!
Yes, yes, before the gnomehouse go to the gnomes. They need their house badly! Mum, there are many gnomes!! Will this house be big enough? I tell you: way too small! 😉
PS To the human mum of the gnomes: thank you very much for the pictures of the little house with it’s residents! ❤
Well, dear friends, I had a very busy week! I can tell you that! But this lady grandma did it all!
First we went to the seaside! The first day was marvellous! I had a good run on the beach. But the second day did not start that well. I got no breakfast! 😦 Go figure!
We left without breakfast and walked to the green clothes man. I like him. 🙂 What happened there? I fell asleep for some time, says mum. And the green clothes man, who was wearing a white coat this time, cleaned my teeth. He also pulled one out!!! The one which was aching all the time… 😉 Nice man! ❤
Some time later mum came back and we walked home. Very, very, very slowly. I slept all day. Got no dinner! 😦 Go figure! Slept next day too, quite a lot.
Now we are back home!
This saturday, we went to the huge dogpark and I showed my best self! Grandma? Mum says I still think I am only 5. She put me on the leash in the end, so that I would behave my age in stead of forcing myself. Well mum, my teeth are not hurting any more, what do you want?!!!
Pictures and video proove that I was one busy grandma Lady!
When we started our evening walk, in the snow (third time this winter 😉 ), and we turned around the corner… I told mum to go to the dogpark. I saw it all right: Rex was there!
In the snow, I will not hurt me mum, playing with him. I did not tell her i was going to make it clear for once and always that he should know his place! You cannot treat a grandma as you handle other youngsters! 😉 And surely not an airedale lady grandma! ❤
But that was what i did! He barked a lot, he was a bit afraid. He did not know that a grandma in good shape is not that easy to deal with and surely you should not fleering!!! Surely not…
Mums were looking and my mum was filming a little bit but when it came to the point where it became clear who will be the boss, she was not filming. Ggggrr, the mums were just telling each other what was happening.
When we were leaving i showed him that you have to go to your mum when she calls you and he did too. And going back home, he was very calmly walking with his mum, only still puling a bit on the leash… well, nobody learns everything in one day!
PS Pity that the française was not there to learn how to handle him! 😉
Yes, i should write you more, I know… ❤ But mum says you know everything, there at the rainbowbridge… 😉
But this time, I have big news! You will never believe this! Yesterday it was my birthday! Now, I am 10 years old! ❤ My age is with 2 numbers now! You always told me that age has to have two numbers to be a grandpa and to be wise. I now, i am not a grandpa but a grandma! You see, I am wise now.
So from now on, I am lady grandma Kita. I will tell everybody! Yes, it showed already! Most youngsters have respect for me nowadays (except the française and Rex – française still bites in my hind legs, gggrrr). And yes, I am very wise now, i understand everything and I always think twice or even three times before agreeing and doing things!
And at the other side, as you said too, my bones get old. But with the treats the green clothes man (a new and very kind one you never met) I am doing all right and started chasing cats again. Imagine, mum seemed pleased with that – she changes too! As you all predicted. No, no doping steroids yet… i am only 10 and not 15 like you, you know! 😉
I had a nice day yesterday. While sissie Lizzie was out, I got a very special treat: calf cartilage. Yummy and safe, mum says. Yes, she still knows better… that is what she thinks! 😉 And yes, I made a mess of my bed BUT I cleaned it up! You see, a grandma cleans up the mess!
Dear grandpa, off to lunch now! 🙂 You will understand that! Yesyes, we still get some veggies when mum is busy in the kitchen! I have to hurry not to miss it!
It is almost unbelievable, but… yesterday evening it snowed again. Not that much and it was dark and too late to go out for me and sissie Lizzie. But kids did! And they made a snowman, at 50 meters from our window. Rex’s mum texted Rex was afraid of the snowman!
Mum, listen, we go out after lunch to fototoot me and the man of snow? To show Rex how ladies behave? 😉 What, you want to toot too, you? The française? My dogness, mum, no… we go with the 2 of us, really!
After lunch, me and mum went out. To the snowman. Oooh, my dogness, he fainted!!! Mum, the poor man needs help! Help me, will you? So me and mum were healing the snowman. He was happy and did not move during the toot. Good, stoïc man! ❤
And there she came… the française! She convinced dad to go to the fototoot session too! Ppppfff, she almost behaved like a lady… at least at first! Hahahaha, poor Lizzie was very carefull because a bit afraid. She first looked from behind dad’s legs. Hahahaha. But then she was all right and even jumped! 🙂
Normally, when the doorbell rings… Olala, sacrebleu! Kita and me, we make a terrier-fying fuss, to warn Mum and Dad that a serious threat might be imminent. This morning, though, the doorbell rang at a very, very early time, beaucoup trop tôt. We weren’t even awake yet! Dad was nowhere in sight to get our morning routine going.
“Mum and Dad are still sleeping,” Kita whispered in my ear, “so we better be nice and quiet. Let’s pretend we’re not even here, and the threat will go away, I guess.” And so we did, and so it did. Whatever it was, on ne saura jamais. Kita didn’t move a muscle, she just stood there, comme une statue gelée, and I ran around a bit, comme un poulet sans tête.
We had barely resumed our sleeping positions, when Dad entered notre dortoir, apparently in one of these moods. Every move or sound he made, clearly showed that he wasn’t ready to get this Blue Monday started. And when he’s nervous, I’m not at ease either. Si je ne comprends rien, ça me rend nerveuse. But then we started cuddling and everything was great again.
It does not happen every year, really not! But yesterday, there was falling snow in Antwerp! We saw it from the window!
Mum, really, I want to go out? You know that? But we wait untill there is enough snow… Really,, sometimes she is silly, this mum of mine! 😉
In the end, we had to wait for almost 2 hours, an aeternity that is, it was my turn first! Of course, I am the oldest! The lady (drama) queen of the household! ❤ I played with Spanish gentleman Solar!
When I was home again, big surprise: mum took out the française while dad was fixing the shower… no more warm water… Lizzie played with 2 Spanish gentlemen… You could say it was the Spanish-snow-day for me and the française! 🙂
Today was a beautiful sunny winterday! It started good! At noon, we were going to the dogpark nearby! The française was very, very happy. Her big lover was there: Rex. Well, because he is not my lover and only 8 or 9 months old, he is not my favorite! Surely not after today!
What happened? The 2 youngsters were playing very wild and running like fools. They don’t look to who else is in the park. Three weeks ago, they got dad down on the ground… Not too much harm done, but really… this lady got never a human down on the ground! 🙂
Well, playing too wild they both run into me at , at least, 40 km/hour! No, i do not exaggerate!!!! Well, I stayed on my four feet but from the big smack against me, THEY fell down at my feet. Dad was nearby and came to see… as always I stayed my stoïc self and walked to mum. She cleaned my face and leg: their dirty feet went up in my face… Mum said: we go home, keep moving a bit, do not lay down. No pics, too fast, all what happened… 😦
Normally when I hear the word: home, in a dogpark, i don’t like it… this time however… 🙂
The française as well as I slept all afternoon. Because we are self-cleaning, you see exactly where we slept all afternoon! But mum is really well trained, as you can see in the pictures! 😉
