For ever… best of friends

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! 🙂

La Française… discovers a New World!

Every now and then, comme vous savez, we go to the seaside. A la plage, comme on dit. Every once in a while, when we are in a somewhat philosophical mood, Kita ponders about many of her online friends far away, across the huge sea – l’Océan, comme on dit. One of them, she says, speaks both French and English, comme moi! Kita says he used to live in Canada, which is all the way to my breeder’s place en France, and again… et encore beaucoup plus loin!

He doesn’t live there anymore now, because he went to the Rainbow Bridge, apparemment. J’aime when Kita speaks about that Bridge, because of the stories about Grandpa Lennox and many other friends. Je ne comprends pas why we never go over there to visit them. Kita says it is impossible. Je veux bien, but according to the stories, Grandpa Lennox and this Canadian guy, Duke, would be much fun to hang around with, sans doute. So it goes. Très dommage!

Anyway, in the Canadian house of this Duke guy, there are a Mum and a Dad, like in our own house. All four of them speak French and English, comme moi! I would really have loved to meet them, but Kita and me, we had to go to the hotel – comme d’habitude, when Mum and Dad go away for a few days. This time, they went all the way to a big Dutch city, Amsterdam – wherever that is – to meet the Canadian Mum and Dad of Duke who went to the Bridge.

Afterwards, si j’ai bien compris, these people did meet James, Kita’s German AT cousin, with his Mum. Pourquoi pas moi? Moreover, Kita told me that very soon the Canadian Mum and Dad will be welcoming a tiny Aire Lady in their home! Ca alors! J’en suis persuadée: she’ll become my international friend, ma petite copine Canadienne! Every time we are à la plage, I’ll bark en français across l’Océan, to send her ma pensée from over here, en Belgique.

Fototoot … ordered by Lady Kita

These days my mum talks a lot about numbers! My dogness, yes! Numbers of days, numbers of items, numbers of books, numbers of ddds, numb…

dvd’s, Kita, dvd’s!

Okay, numbers of ddd’s, numbers of rom-d’s, …

cd-roms, Kita, cd-roms! (sigh)

Okay, I got it: lot’s of c’s, d’s and roms! So I charged her to make a fototoot at noon of me and the sweet, cute, little brown leaves in the street. Love them! When there is a slight bit of wind, they wirl around! 🙂
Mum loves their colour, she says. She is in the colour-business, you know! With all the crocheting and yarn and all that. I’m not in that business, grandpa told me that we see lot less colours than humans. He was so wise, my grandpa! ❤

Anyway: enjoy the toot I ordered and the colours if you are human. Fur-friends: enjoy just this lady! 😉

PS I wink at you, you see it! Mum asked me to!

Tonight is about… silence and peace…

Yesterday and today there was this happening in the heart of the old city, near the cathedral. Kind of demonstration for silence and peace, during 24 hours.
( 🙂

The whole afternoon today, there was that very noisy beat music at about 50 meters from the demonstration, then the cathedral churchbells were adding more noise for a very long time. On top of that, a cruise ship was leaving with… yes, with 2 very long “tooooooooooooot’s”. Dad and mum didn’t like all the noise coming our way, all to the left bank. 😦

So after dinner mum said to me: let’s go for silence and peace… also in town, but on the left bank… Pictures will show you silence and peace! ❤

Alternative facts about… turning two!

Just sneaking in on Kita’s blog page here, to tell you about some recent event dans ma petite vie. Kita probably won’t have bothered, so… The thing is: yesterday was my second birthday! Yes, you heard it right: j’ai deux ans maintenant! Becoming a real Aire-Lady, n’est-ce pas? We got a special chewing bone, to celebrate the event. 🙂

I had already started the party earlier by chewing on a little thingy Mum had dropped on the floor for me. A dry, flavourless slice of je ne sais pas quoi… I just crumbled it to pieces, c’est tout. No big deal… Mum didn’t seem very amused, however. Well, I got a tasty bull stick anyway. I don’t really understand why Kita got one too… 😉

I was fooling around with it: Tellement amusant! Mum and Dad didn’t appreciate that much, After that, Kita was scared I’d try to snatch her bone from her, so she immediately ran off to her crate with it! Ca alors! Well, she always knows best how to behave Aire-Lady-like, so I ran after her and settled in my crate with my bone as well. 🙂

Apparently, settling in the crate was a way smarter move than throwing the bone around and all: Mum and Dad were delighted! Maybe Kita does know a thing or two about les manières d’une Dame Airedale… Although I overheard Mum and Dad sharing memories of Kita being two: not so Lady-Like then, that smart one, il me semble! 😉

Birthday-Française making… trouble!!

Today is a bit of a special day! It is the birthday of our Française! She is 2 years old now. Mum says that the Terrible Two-period starts today! Did not understand it untill just a few minutes later Lizzie was showing it… 😉

The husband of the human pup went to Porto some time ago and brought some nice things to put on your cup of hot coffee or hot tea… Mum explained the thing protects the table cloth. Hahaha, but the nice thing fell down when mum took her cup and she did not see it. Sissie did! So, nothing on the ground can be protected from the Française… Result? See the picture! 😉

Mum was not too pleased. But we got a birthday treat anyway. I took mine straight to my crate: just want to protect my things from the Française. She played a bit and came to her crate too We really enjoyed our bully stick! 🙂 ❤

Another year of patience with the Française, really, mum? Are you serious about this? Patience with me too till 3? Sssstttt, we do not talk about that!

PS Not possible to put the nice birthday bandana on Lizzie, she would tear it apart! 😉



Update with… old news! :-)

A year ago, I told you  a bit of special news: a new street in our street:

Well, I think it might be fun to tell you how it is now! 😉

This street is for all the garbage. Me and mum, we often go there! We sort out at home everything, then we take the bags and the special card. We take the elevator and go to our little street! 🙂

There are 5 different little houses in the street. Roof of the houses open with your special card! And you put the correct garbage in the little house! The big house is under the ground and it eats everything! 😉

I always do the big inspection part, you know! Inspection business is grat in that little street! ❤


PS My friend Wally was passing by and his mum took a pic of me and mum! 🙂



Well, mum… I like these ones!

Okay, me and mum, we’ re busy! Mum is back to her (new) library thse days and I have to keep an eye on the Française and Dad, of course! Heavy duty! I can sleep all day!!! 🙂 ssstttt.

And the there is the human pup! She has all these special critters… the doggies can not come near! Not me, not Goofy and not Shasta! Human pup is selling them these days too, and also the food and other stuff they need!
She had this wild idea: she will sell also handmade critters! She calls them sakes. 😉

Snakes, Kita, snakes!

And tuttles too!

Turtles, Kita, turtles!

Okay, so me and mum are in the crocheting production of sakes and tuttles! That’s quite fun! ❤

Snakes and turtles, Kita, snakes and turtles, my dear! (sigh)

Mum says, my dear, she does not mind my saying sakes and tuttles! 🙂 I don’t mind her making this funny critters! I hate when she makes cats, but I really love the sakes!
Toot, mum, fototoot, please! 🙂

WWF… = Weird Warm Friday!

Well, days are different,  these days… Mum is back to her new library, something about boxes and a foot that is not too right. That is why it is in a kind of bandage for strenght. She has one foot and the other is one and a half foot, you see… Naughty boxes, yes, something else than naughty dales… 😉

So, yesterday was weird. Dad was not home from early morning till late in the evening. The française did not understand. But… everything has a “but”… the human pup came to town! ❤

That is fun. Sissie Lizzie can’t stop jumping around and on her, although forbidden. Mum’s head still works and she got lunch out! Human pup was forgotten immediately!
After lunch, I was the lucky one walking the human pup, Lizzie was with mum. We went to the small dogpark nearby… The 1,5 foot of mum could not go any further! 😦

Go figure!! Human pup was chasing us all around the park and playing with the ball and hide and seek with us! She was doing 100 meter running sprints with the Française on the way home. I stayed with my mum! 🙂

We took pics! Even sissie was posing, as tired as we were!! 😉

PS I had to take my ball home myself! Did not want to come to go home and give the ball to mum, so home with the ball! lol


Today is about: … where is this lady?

Okay mum, do I get this right?  Last time for few weeks, you say? Another music festival in MY huge dogpark? 😦 Oh, I see, then it will be done for another year. 🙂
So I inspect the premises thoroughly to be sure they get it back in it’s original state! 😉

So said, so done! I did a thorough job! Few times mum barely saw me, but I am there, in every pic she took! 

Can you find me?
