I knew it, I knew it… oooh yes, I knew it: one day you would get me in big trouble! And there we are! Since you are “gone” to that special Bridge mum says I have to keep you updated about the not-Bridge-life. Ggggrrr, you know how I hate the tv-typing machine and posing like a model. Ggggrrrr…
Today though, no modelling of me, ppppffff… You remember the four year old little guy, calling mum ‘buurvrouw Patricia’. Well, he did a spectacular thing! With his new camera,he made the very last picture of you and mum, about 24 hours before you left. Well, I want to show you this pic of silly mum (watch her silly face 🙂 🙂 ) and you.
These days, the parents sleep till I or the française wake them up. Mostly this lady, because i want to go outside to pee, you see! An old Lady has her little “besognes” as says the française in the house. 😉
When mum hears me calling her, she comes immediatly. I got her well trained! 😉 She puts her feet in her boots, still with pyjamas on, and puts on her wintercoat. And out we go!
This morning we had to wait for the elevator and off we went, outside to the grass park before the building! 😉 I did my pee etc and when we headed back in, a car stopped and a mister came out. He said good morning, so did we! Of course, we are polite… 🙂
But then, the sir opened his car and what a surprise: another airedale came out! ❤ Go figure!
It got even better: my grandfather Desmond is her father!!! So Bo is my aunt. She is 13,5 years old and still going very strong! The mister made a pic and a small video! Thanks mister!
Mum, now me, lady Kita knows all the airedales of the left bank, don’t I? 🙂 There is Rolf, Bo, my sissie Lizzie and me!
After all these emotions, this grandma needed a good nap! 🙂
Yesterday, 21 March, was my gotcha day! Number 11!
Yes, you read it well! Grandpa Lennox always said, when you are past 10 years old, every day is to be seen as a gift! It can be your last one. Well, that does count for everybody, I think! 😉
Anyway, the weather was beautiful yesterday and today, and warm too! So we went out to make some pictures, mum said. Pictures of Gotcha day…
We show you everything! Bloopers too… You know I can pose, and pose very well! Like a real model! But if there is a lot to see, I am not in the mood for posing. And then, as grandpa thaught me: humans and others should respect your personal space 😉 … mums too! But she did not… see the bloopers. Look at her face too!
This time very gentle people were helping her, no selfies this time! 😉
The weeks since my birthday were a kind of special and a bit of a hell!
Day before yesterday there was this very big storm, called Eunice… a lot of damage was done. Me and mum went to see a bit of it yesterday! 🙂 See pictures!
Yes, only a bit because i am still training my muscles! Why? Because I was ill, my belly is ill… I got pills that worked very well for my belly but they had side effects. After 2 weeks, i couldn’t get up anymore on my own… and not walk far! Mum was in a bit of panic, you know her! And me? I was thinking of you! I silently hoped i could get some of this doping you got several times! ;-) Remember, i was jealous of them! 😉 ;-)
Well, i got different pills, human pills! Go figure! And… i got this injection with your doping, they call it starsiden, or something. Correct that, silly Kita, steroïdes! As i said, grandpa, Starsiden!
The new pills are very effectif! Why humans always get the better things???? And now I am walking around again. Still tired quite soon and I sleep a lot, but mum says I am my sympathetic and stubborn self again! And very important: my poo is okay and my belly most of the time too! ❤ You can keep your paws crossed that my blood will be okay too in a few weeks!
Big hugs from the little one, the biggest one here now!
Yes, yes, I know you know it… Today is my birthday and I am 11 years old. A real grandma, says my mum…
A few weeks ago we were at the seaside and me and mum tried to make some selfies for my birthday picture! That was real fun! Of course i acted like a fool, but so did mum. She will never learn to make a decent selfie. People passing by had even more fun than we! I show them all to you! Bloopers too!
How I am doing? Well, to tell the truth, not too good. Seems I have a special disease… They found out filming my bowel (IBD, for humans it is called Crohn) at a very nice place in Borsbeek, near Antwerp, with many green cloths. The filming green cloth was a very kind specialist lady. She prescribed me some very strong pils. Me and mum and dad and the française, we all hope i will get better soon. ❤ Really what will the parents do with that rascall when i am gone! I still have to teach her so much and keep her under control! Will be continued! Will write you soon, again!
Big, big hugs from your little one who is the biggest here now. Lady Kita van ’t Asbroek
First of all: Happy New Year to you all! I was too busy to write earlier…
With this française in the house, a real rascall, I got the idea to try a few things myself. The parents never stay angry, i remarked, so…
First i was thinking to help a bit with the prewashing… although very forbidden. I told sissie Lizzie several times… Tried it… Bad idea!!!!!! Caught in the act! :-(
Then there was this very nice fleece blanket, to cover the boxes on which there was the christmas tree… Well, I tought i might chew a bit on a corner. I took the corner that was well hidden behind the box… you would not remark! Bad idea again! Caught in the act again! 😦 All this was in december…
So I decided to start the year 2022 better. No try outs again, i promised! 😉 ❤
Last months, but surely the last weeks, we witnessed something very special. Big works in our neighboorhood. We could not stroll around as we used too, it was special! Mum talks about a stuntological tech!
A technological stunt, Kita, a technological stunt!
Yes mum, i know very well: a stuntological tech, I just said it.
We went to see the preparations. To help people cross, they build a bridge, we went up on it, to see the tech! What was it all about? They were building a water pipeline. Not special? Wait till you hear this: the water pipeline is more then 800 meters long and will go from the left bank to the right bank, UNDER the river Scheldt. Without digging or whatever! River Scheldt is 500 meters large here and more then 20 meters deep at low tide. And the pipeline goes under it! And the we went to see it happen! They started early in the morning and at 6 pm, pipeline was UNDER the river! You see, it is a stuntological tech! See pics and videos, you even can see the pipeline move in a video! And now I am going tback to bed, it appears i am a bit ill But it does not show, does it?
You know, we have this française in the house: sissie Lizzie. Well, she has a strange habitude… well, more than 1, but i tell you about this one! In winter, to avoid wind is coming in, mum puts a rolled towel before the door. (she tried a nice, long dog, but as you can guess, the française ran around with it… shaking it…) What does this sissie do with the towel??? Well, see the pictures!
Second habit, which mum calls strange, is mine… not strange at all, I think… lots of my friends do it, they told me. Even the française does sometimes… with her towel… 😉 🙂 Mum filmed it a few days ago… you will see it is normal…
And then this lady loves to walk around the block with some nice jewelry, so that the humans gently smile at me or even laugh… i love children pointing at me… Mum things that my jewelry is strange… well, judge for yourself and see the pics andmovie…
