World champion… just like Nina Derwael

– ” Kita, dis-moi! Why are Mum and Dad always counting after our walks?”

– “What are you talking about, funny little Française? Are they counting???”

– “Mais oui! When we get home, they say for instance: it was a ‘five’ today…”

– “Oh, that! They express how well we behaved during the walks, you see…”

– “Eh bien, ça alors! What does ‘five’ or ‘nine’ mean? C’est bien ou pas bien?

– “A ‘ten’ is the perfect walk: no incidents and a well-behaving Aire Lady!”

– “I rarely get a ‘ten’… Does that mean they don’t like me? Ils ne m’aiment pas?

– “Of course they do, you silly! Give it some time… Once you will be a well-accomplished Aire Lady like me, and then you’ll get lots of ‘tens’ too.”

– “I do my best, you know. Je fais mon petit possible. Will I eventually succeed?

– “Why not? Only a few days ago I heard Dad say: for today’s walk Lizzie gets a real Nina Derwael score! That is even better than a ‘ten’, you know!”

– “Je ne comprends rien! What does a ‘Nina Derwael score’ mean? Explique-moi!

– “Well, last week Nina Derwael won the first ever Belgian world champion’s title in gymnastics and gymnasts get scores for their performances, just like you and me.”

– “C’est fou, ça! Am I the first french World Champion of Aire Lady walks then?”

Well-behaving… as an Aire Lady should!

– ” Kita, écoute moi! I’m in a fototoot too! I’m in a fototoot too!”

– “How do you mean: in a fototoot, little Française? Without me?”

– “Bien-sûr! I was on my walk with Dad and then we met Mum.”

“Ah, I saw her from our front window. She went to the recycling center.”

– “Mais oui! She opened it with her card and threw away some déchets.”

– “I know. She does that every once in a while: paper, glass… everything.”

– “I did some thorough inspection business, comme tu me l’as appris.

– “But for a successful fototoot, one has to behave Lady Airedale like…”

– “Evidémment! I did just that! I posed very nicely. Qu’attendais-tu?

– “Why don’t I believe you? You always bounce around like a pinball ball.”

– “Regarde les images! Look at the pictures Mum took! I’m a real lady!”

– “Well, I must say I’m impressed! You might be an Aire Lady after all.”

– “C’est vrai, non? All your friends around the world will love me too!”

Before dinner… Madhouse at Kita’s!

It is a ritual, really! It becomes a tradition, really!

One hour before our dinner, me and the française think it is time to get the attention of dad! He is the one preparing our dinner, you see!

We start walking around and want to get petted! If that does not work – which is about every day – , we start the big means! We start playing. First quietly and then we start running around the place. 😉

This time, after a quarter of an hour of playing, in one way or another, mum got the red blinking thing activated without me noticing. Because I stop being a mad airedale and I act like a lady before the eye of the camera, you see! I really do! Don’t laugh at me, I’m the tooting-model of the house, as you know! ❤

Not this time… 😉 So you see the end of the madhouse-time and the resting-moment! 😉

Big works… no water!

No panic, dear friends, water is back all right! 🙂 ❤

Let me explain my busy days of nowadays! 😉 Near our home there are very big works! The whole bigg crossing we see from oour window, needs “restoration”: new sewerage, new water pipes, new electricity cables, new internet cables, new “rond point” (says the française) with plants… I’m sure you get the picture! 🙂

They started last week and it will continue till the end of march 2019, is written on the “affiches” everywhere! Time for inspection business! ❤

So yesterday we made a tour around the crossing! Because we had no water, I wanted to see  and inspect everything! Hard labour!!! To get our water back, men worked till very late in the evening, till bedtime! I was already sound asleep, tired of the big inspection, you understand! 😉

PS To reassure you: we had drinks all day, mum had a lot of “waterreserves” made! ❤

Proud to be… Braveheart’s daughter!

– “Viens voir, Kita! Look at him! Il est extrèmement beau, isn’t he?”

– “And who might this fine gentleman then be, dear little Française?”

– “Ça va pas, non? It’s my canine Daddy bien-aimé! Don’t you see?”

– “Ah, well, now that you point it out, I do see some resemblance…”

– “Ça alors! He is called Braveheart! Cela dit vraiment tout, non?

– “He is handsome, I have to admit… I wouldn’t mind meeting him!”

– “But you did meet him! He was here when I arrived, souviens toi!”

– “Around this time, two years ago… I remember! You were so timid.”

– “Bien sûr, I didn’t know the language or anything! Qu’attendais-tu?

– “Not anymore! You are bouncing around like a crazy pinball ball.”

– “Mais non! I’m enthusiastic, c’est tout. Would mon père be like that?”

– “How do I have to know! Probably… You are his daughter after all.”

– “C’est vrai! And with a name like that he must be enthusiastic too!”

Oooh, mum… can this one stay?

For the friends who do not know yet: my mum is a lady, as I am, but she is a busy lady… as I am! I have a lot of businesses, my mum too… She has to do the household, she has to keep us busy, she is in that new businesses: tirered. And then there is the very important business: crocheting. I help, of course. When she is busy, I keep an eye on her… she can’t do naughty things, as you understand! 😉

And then, when it is finished I am the one inspecting! The française can’t, she would destroy it… 😦 And then we make a fototoot! I know that very well. When mum takes the finished thing and the red blinking thing, where ever I am, I run to be there! ❤ Treats afterwards you know. Today, me and she forgot the treats but I did not mind! ❤

This time I am very pleased! VERY pleased! I want to keep this one. He is so nice and not too small as the other one of yesterday! Please, mum, can we keep this one? You do not know? Why?

Oooh, he is for selling at that special market in that special school, in november? Well, I like him so much that I hope he will not be sold! 😉 You disagree with me? 😉 That is not the first time… 😉
We will see… ❤

 

 

Yes… yes… we were there!!! :-)

Finally, mum lets me tell about the seaside again! 🙂

I still have to stay on the leash on the beach but there are less people around. And early in the morning, when other doggies are off the leash, for a few minutes, I can too! You see, I am lucky: mum can be a bit of a naughty terrier too! 😉 But only for a minute or five! 😦

And then one time, I found a very long fish which I rescued from the incoming tide. And I was lucky again! Mum had the red blinking thing to film! 😉

Yes, seaside, you mean FUN! ❤ ❤ ❤

Here is the proof!

 

 

Yes, mum!… We’ll help you!

Mum is getting  less chaos in her crocheting business, that is what I notice! Told the française: one of these days we will have to help her with the inspection! You’ll see! 😉

I was really right. Well I taught her quite well, this little rascal: she is a good inspection-member these days! Of course I have to supervise everything! ❤

It was quite fun too! At one moment, i got under these bubbles and sissie too! Mum was laughing a lot! 😉 I did not laugh that much! No help from the française to get out of it, of course. 😦 But I’m a lady, I helped her when she got under it! 😉

 

Yes!!!!… My famous cousin!

Mum, mum, mum… come and have a look! What? I was not allowed on the tv-typing-thing this morning? I know, but look! Mum, don’t be mad at me, just look! 😉

You see? There is my cousin Harry! ❤ He is in the magazine again! I found this on your page, could you please put it on mine too?

What? Have to do it myself, being a smartass going on the tv-typing-machien when not allowed? Okay! 😉

Dear friends: here is Harry, my cousin, in the magazine Elle with his dad! Nice view on a part of the Antwerp skyline too. So note: my cousin, my skyline and my city! In Elle! ❤

PS Do not know the date though! 😦

This heat?… Special walks! (part 1)

For weeks and weeks it is very warm here! Grass gets yellow and more of that. 😦

At noon, after lunch, that is after the lunch of mum and dad – we get nothing at lunchtime – me and mum we do the shadow walk! I prefer toos sleep when it is that warm but mum says: pee-time and walk-time. 😉

Hahaha, we have this big place before the house with grass and trees. So I call it the hopping-walk! We hop from shadow to shadow to get around the place. Today mum took the red thing and made a very long video! 15 minutes, go figure! To show you how we go from shadow to shadow and not on the hot stones, at least as less as possible! 😉

In the end there was something new! Firemen came this morning. One branch of a big tree got so dry it could fell down on the little bus-waiting-house and on the people! It was cracking and cracking dangerously so firemen came and put it down! Inspection business!!!!!

When returning home, Lizzie came home too from her shadow walk! No, silly, not alone!

PS Next time, news of the heat-fresh-in-the-morning-big-walks!
