This morning mum was cutting the special treats! I knew it immediately: we are going somewhere special and off the leash too! That is when the special treats come too! ❤
Off we went! 1,5 hour drive! But we arrived! I understood and needed to explain to the française: this is Rockanje! We will see a lot af dales. This is called an airedalemeeting! She remembered! Wow, she finally becomes a bit wise…
We had the whole beach! Dales everywhere! We ran a lot. Surely the française did. She ran and jumped around the double of me! 😉
In the end, when we came back to the café to have a drink and to eat, of course, she disappeared! Whistle from dad: no Lizzie. Mum calling her: no Lizzie. I thaught i had to intervene, so I barked two times! As I do at home when she is a bit naughty. Well? The française entered the scene again with a look on her face: what on earth is the problem. Go figure! Mum and dad were laughing too: she did the same thing last year, in Rockanje! She remembered! hahahaha! ❤
Lots of pictures! Enjoy the lot! About 30 dales, mum thinks!
PS The française is the one with the red bandana! I have a white with coloured one!
PPSS One dad had treats! Just one dale behaved like a lady and was politely sitting and waiting for the treat! ME!!!!!!!
Last Tuesday, I had an appointment! At the huge dogpark! With a guy! And no, it is not what you might think! 😉
I was going to meet Jake! My dogness, what a guy! He is a border collie and is 11 weeks old! Well, the française could take him for an exemple! He is obeing his dad better than I ever did! Go figure! He is a nice guy, really is! An exemple to doghood, grandpa Lennox would say! ❤
So, we were allowed to play and run. Not too long because he is so very young, that is not good for his young bones! And mum did take pics of course… as usual we were moving to much to have sharp pictures. We even played hide and seek with our parents! We run away and were hidden. You go look in the pics for us! I ordered mum to put all the pics here!!! 😉
And there is one, with Jake flying!!!!
At the end Jake was telling me a secret (no, I will not tell you, it won’t be a secret anumore) and he gave me a lot of kisses! ❤
PS There even is a little film (at the end!), not too ladylike though but mum wants to put it here: all the pics for the video, she said! Deal, I said!
Yesterday there was a parcel for mum in the mail! With someting special in it! Yes!
Airedales in the parcel! 🙂 Two heavy airedales!
Impossible you say? No, no, i tell the truth. 😉
This saturday morning it was raining cats and dogs. Yes, we have a raincoat, but still, we are quite wet: paws, tail, head. Than we have to go in our crate to dry, most of the time with the door open: training, mum is saying! We have to stay. For a saturday, I think this training is quite enough. 🙂
Not today!Mum did put the airedales before our crate and used the “AF”-word! That means: Do NOT touch, by all means, do NOT touch! Okay, mum, no problem for me, but… what about the française? 😦
I really warned her… I did! Stubborn mum never listens, she is even worse than an airedale terrier! Result? A third wet airedale! Proof is in the picture! 😉
… we have the same age now! 🙂 ❤ ❤ ❤
Yesyes! Yesterday it was mum’s birthday! She received a lot of best wishes from all of MY friends! Go figure! We thank you for all these wishes, mum says to tell you!
Anyway, she is 62 years old now. That means we have the same age now! 🙂 ❤
You do not believe me? Listen carefully to this! Here we say that one doggie-year counts for seven human-years. So mum counts 62 human years and me too!
In january I will be nine years old. That means 63 human-years! But it is not january yet, so now I have 62 human years!
You see, I am as old as mum and mum is as old as me! And I supppose dad will agree, he often says that mum sometimes acts as a teenager… You see, it works in all directions! 😉 😉
And of course we stay the best of friends although we have the same age now!
Mum, really, did you see that?
What, Kita, what?
No, you did not, I knew it! Just have a careful look at the française. You don’t notice it?
What should I notice?
Oh, my dogness, you really are silly! She went to the groomer-lady, with the golden hands… remember? Well, I think she did not only get a haircut!
I am sure she also got a tail-extension! Her tail is much longer than mine! 😦
I am the biggest lady here and my tail is shorter! Go figure!
You laugh? Take that pink ribbon you have, to measure things. Surprised? You see it! Her tail is 37 cm long and mine only about 29 cm. 😦
Next time I will be asking for a tail-extension too at the lady with the golden hands! Be sure! ❤
PS Pics are not too clear, I was too excited to keep my tail still! Was wagging all the time!
PPSS Mum measured in inches too… Her ribbon has two sides! 😉
And a big discovery!
When we hear something going on outside, the française always rushes immediately to the window and she jumps on the windowsill to see what is happening. She runs from one window to the other to be sure she doesn’t miss what is going on and to see all doggies pass by… 😉
I only get up and walk calmly to the correct window when I hear it is worthwile to get up!!! I hear better and I am wiser to detect the interesting noises. 🙂
And then a little while ago I did this discovery! If I fold my ear backwards, I hear even better! I tried to explain to sissie Lizzie but that is energy for nothing! She rushes around like a fool instead of listening wisely! 😦
Mum got a pic too! While she was crocheting!! ❤ Go figure!
My inspection business is in full operation these days. As you know mum likes crocheting… and these days she makes a lot of things. 🙂
She can finish them, now that the big heat is over! Oh yes, we had a heatwave! Never seen before in Belgium: 40° C and more! 😦
Okay, now we are back in the usual business and I had to inspect a big blanket, very soft. Mum calls it yanille charm!
Chenille yarn, Kita, chenille yarn!
Okay, mum, yanille charm, that’s what I said all right. My head was on it and did not like to get up again! 😉 ❤ Hahahahaha!
Yes, I am very serious about this! ❤
A few days ago I went to the hairdresser’s. As my real sister Feline did 2 weeks ago! And be sure: I like my new hairdo! I’m all ready for summer! 🙂
And you know? I got a bandana with my name on it! Go figure!
Is she great? Or is she great!!!!
Look at the pics. Me and mum are becoming better and better in the selfie-business! We don’t mention the one my ear is before her eye, of course! 😉
Mum did not believe her eyes! She called me the day before yesterday, at 11 o’clock in the evening, when a lady sleeps her beautysleep! But I went to her and jumped on the windowsill. I saw it too! An airedale!!! And no, you silly, it was not the française with my dad. It was another human with another dale and a Jack Russell. 🙂 ❤
Next morninig, we went for our walk and we strolled through the neighbourhood… looking for a dale! Of course! Right before our home we met!! The girl is English but she lives in Italy with her humans, a Jack and a cat. She is two years old and her name is Gemma. 🙂 ❤
Gemma is a very nice girl. In the evening, after her visiting the city and taking the boat, we went to the little dogpark near our home! First we met Filou. He is in love with all airedales! 😉
Mum took a lot of pictures and was filming. Very difficult story, she says, because we were moving all the time. Well, we put them here anyway! 😉
Now Gemma left for Cologne early this morning! Have a nice trip, Gemma!
PS Have fun with all these pics and the movie in the end! 😉
It has been a long time since I saw you! How are you doing? I think you are more than all right!! How do I know that?
Well, a few hours ago my mum called me and she said I should just have a look at the pictures. She asked if I realisd what I saw. Of course I saw immediatly it was my seaside and my beach in the picture. And that is me, I said! 😉
My mum laughed at me and said I should look again! And then I was a bit ashamed… 😦 only then I saw it was you, my sister of the same litter! Same doggie mum, same doggie dad! ❤
Mum told me you went to the same nice lady with the golden hands! That was the reason of my mistake, of course! You are very beautiful and ready for summer now! Yes, yes, I went there too! Love the nice lady. You too? I saw you got a present too! 🙂
Enjoy your new hairdo and enjoy summer! And give a big hug to your human mum too!
