On friday morning mum told me that me and the française would get our Christmas present already that very day! What? A chewy? Now already? No, I just have to wait?
Okay, we go in the car… for a christmas present? Well…
Sissie, I see it! Don’t you see where we are going? We are going to the beauty center? Oh yes, to the nice lady. Ohlala, the two of us the same day? That is fun!!! 🙂
We get out of the car and me too, just as the française, I pull on the leash to get in! I know, that is not lady-like, but the sooner we get in, the sooner the fun starts! 🙂
Bye mum, see you this evening! No, mum and dad can not stay but we can! 😉 We will be all ready for the holidays! Merry Christmas, guys!
PS At home, i ordered mum to make a toot… well, with that française, tooting is not easy… 😦 Hundred bloopers and a few good pics! Tired dales here now!
Mum, what do yu say? Really? You did what? Impossible, show me!
Oh, my dogness, is that me sleeping? I am a beauty, don’t you agree? Oh and I make little noises… Charming! Really cute!
No, I am no longer mad at you for filming me while I was sleeping! Can i share with all my friends? Yes? Great!!
Dear granny Cita
Really, some days the news is not that good, isn’t it? After my mum Funnygirl, you left for the Rainbow Bridge! You will be missed by your human mum and dad, that’s for sure!
And did you already meet my mummy and my grandpa Lennox and all those other friends? Will you greet them from me? 🙂
My mum says I look like you and she hopes I will become also almost 15 years old, looking as good as you did, dear granny! You were such a beautiful lady! ❤
I hope I have your genes… 😉
Run free, over there, granny Cita, run free and play a lot with all the other family members Van ’t Asbroek! Have a good time!
Lots of wet kisses and a biteyface!

PS Mum found some pics of a good year ago!
You know, mum has this French friend for about 42 years… We see her regularly! 🙂 I’ve been there too! 🙂
The French friend likes to knit: she knits all kinds of things… also CopyHumans. Mum crochets, most of all CopyAnimals. You remember CopyKita?
Mum’s French friend is very clever and humorous! For mum’s 60th birthday and the big thing, the tirered, remember?… well for that occasion she made me a CopyMum! No CopyKita without CopyMum, you see! 😉
If you look very well you can see mum’s typical things, hahaha: the earrings, the scarf, the trousers, the glasses, the red blinking thing, the hook and yarn… really mum! ❤
PS Mum, but be comforted: you are not as grey as CopyMum… 🙂 … not yet!!! 😉
Mum, where are we going? Why are you talking about Hexe and James? I know Hexe from Cologne, I saw her there! But I never saw my cousin James. Are we going to Cologne? No? Oh, to Rockanje!!!!
Where is this française that I go tell her! She just settled in here when we went there last year. What? You don’t remember Rockanje? At the sea? With about 30 dales? You forget easily, sissie! 😉
Yeeey, we are the first on the beach! Where is everybody? Why don’t they come? Inside with coffee? Too much wind? They are not used to run on the beach! Poor humans and doggies! There they are! 🙂
Let the party start! ❤
PS Human mum and human pup of the human mum of Hexe and James were there too!!!! Great to see them again! Hahahaha, cousin James never saw the sea and he does not like the water! What do you say, mum? I was afraid of the sea the first time I went there?! SSSSttttt, nobody has to hear this! 😉
Mum, listen to me! You really have to do something about this! About what? About what? Can’t you see it?
It is all the fault of this biteyface-française! Just do something!
What is the problem? Have a good look!!! This lady happened to have a very nice beard, you always said so yourself! And look at me now! You see it? Almost no beard left! That’s the française: she eats my beard while we play biteyface! Just do something about it! 😉
No, I am not all excited! I just want my beard back! Impossible? Should grow again? Slowly? Well, you tell the française: no more biteyface! 😉
What? I have to tell her myself? How can I? When she starts I have to pley along, I have to defend myself: no way I can stop her!
Besides: I like a bit of biteyface… 😉
I ordered mum to make a little fototoot of my no-beard-situation! 😦
Finally, summer is far gone and fall is there since a few weeks! I think that is the best news of every year! Mum thinks so too! We like autumn, winter and spring. Not summer!
How come? We can off leash on the beach now, we can’t in summer! We love running there, inspecting and looking for fish… remember? I’m the one with the best nose, for the inspection business, the française is the one who hears best – if she wants to hear things! 😉
So… fall is very well installed: off to the beach and the sky is nice, mum says! Who cares about the sky… go figure! Down here it is more interesting! 🙂
There is this big news! Mum told me she will be more home from now on. She won’t be going to “her” library anymore! Go figure!
Who could ever imagine that? The news is that she is tired now…
Retired, Kita, retired!
Okay, too tired to go to work, that’s what I said! 🙂
No, Kita REtired!
Yes, yes, all right, I got it: ‘tirered’! What does that mean? Well, first of all a lot of inspection to do! Dad had to take the car and go fetch mum with a lot of stuff, that thursday of the ‘tirered’. So Lizzie and me we were inspecting everything!
My dogness, mum’s colleagus even thought of us! We got poop-bags! Now, I like these colleagues: treats too, but not for us! And coffeee and yarn and a nice bag to put the crochetworks in! Quite some inspection. 😉
As always, the Française was not that interested, but I was! Also for the parcel coming with the postman! Mum liked that too! 🙂
Good news: more mum at home, more walks and get-outs, more crocheting… think I will like that! Although the Française is not interested… 😉 , I am!!!!!!!! I’m mum’s girl, you know! ❤
Dad is sad.
I wonder why… I’ve done my very best – tout mon petit possible – to do whatever he wants or expects from me. I even haven’t been naughty! I’ve been very dynamic – although, je le sais bien, that isn’t always fully appreciated… – and I’ve given him lots of cuddles and kisses – câlins et bisous – but nothing seems to cheer him up.
Je ne comprends pas! So I turned to Kita for some wise advice. Comme vous savez, Kita is Mrs Knows It All, but of course she’s also my one and only best friend. “He probably is in a melancholic mood,” Kita explained. “You see, some years ago around this time, Grandpa Lennox passed away to go to the Rainbow Bridge.” 😦
“Please, Kita, tell me again about Grandpa Lennox… Comment était-il? What kind of a guy was he?” – “He definitely wasn’t an Airedale! He was a black Labrador – although I’ve always known him all grey – and he walked somewhat stiffly.” – “Je voudrais bien le rencontrer, I’d love to chase him around and bite in his legs!” 😉
“Oh no, dear Sissie! You wouldn’t do that twice! One growl and a snap, and every dog, me included – or you, for that matter – would leave him alone, if something didn’t please him.” – “Bon, je comprends… But you all loved him so dearly!” – “Ah, that grumpy, old teddy bear! Maybe deep down he was an Airedale after all…” ❤
Don’t be sad anymore, Dad. I’ll do all that I can – tout mon petit possible – to follow in his footsteps! In my own cheeky manner, of course. Cela va sans dire! ❤

Dear Grandpa Lennox
Today, three years ago you left for the Rainbowbridge! 😦 We all hope you have a very good time there and we hope it is there as you told me when you were still here! But I’m quite sure about that: you knew everything. You were so wise! ❤
By the way, did you see from there that the Française got me a nickname? She calls me: “Lady knows it all”! 🙂 I can hear you burst out in laaughter now, as you did when I asked silly things. lol. You see, I did not forget you, not at all! You were my first very best friend and that you will always be. You know what mum told me? I will see you again, one day! She hopes that is still far away in time…
But I have to tell you: I have a new best friend now, a second best friend for ever! My sissie Lizzie. She can be a pain in the… …! But she is very sweet most of the time, this Française. Last week we were playing biteyface while mum and dad were working and we made too much noice. So the little one (no, not me!) got a time out … I was really solidary so I went in her crate with her! 🙂 We did get a good laugh… so will you, seeing the pics! 😉
Have a nice anniversary of your Bridge-arrival-day and hugs to all my friends there! Oh yes, did you meet Canadian Duke?
Big wet kisses from me to my first best friend! ❤

PS I also send you the pics you asked me for! 🙂
