Airedale Duo on Guard

Henry and Josie anticipate Maura’s arrival, as she brings @perpetual_puppy_airedale  (AKA Scout) into the house on Saturday afternoon.
My Pandemic pup(pet) has entertained the grandchildren virtually but Saturday they got to meet him in real life. He’s got an Instagram account and I’ve photographed him and posted. Maura said to me -when I had him on Face Time – let me see him run around on the floor, show me both your hands!  He’s the best kind of pup for me, zero maintenance.
Four of the Grandkids, their mom and two real Airedales and were here this weekend for a quick 24 hour visit. I had not seen them in 3 months.

Airedale Fun

I’m in Ohio with the family for a couple of days. Almost four months since I’ve seen them. Josie and Henry, the Airedales, were enthusiastic for my visit and they were warming up the trundle bed in Maura’s room. where I’m supposed to sleep!

Yes, I have a dog treat on my head!
Puppocinos for the dogs. Whipped cream in little cups from Starbucks.

Michael Photographs the Airedales

My grandson Michael (14) is the guest blogger today. Michael took some photos of Henry and Josie, their Airedale Terriers, over Memorial Day weekend.

The family visited the other grandparents in Virginia and celebrated Mark’s birthday.

Thanks for sharing your photos, Michael.

You captured the humorous duo!  Keep on photographing, too.

New steps on the back deck in Ohio. Debating whether or not to take them.

In 2013 I blogged your first Airedale, Murphy, under that very same tree in Virginia. 

Serious Airedales Pose in Christmas Sweaters

Maura tried to set up the shot. Josie and Henry were hopeful for the treats she had in her hand.

Erika was bummed when she saw the pictures and she said they weren’t smiling.

It’s true. They weren’t smiling. I’ve seen them smile. Just like getting kids to pose for the Christmas card photo. Doesn’t always turn out like you wish.

 

Josie at the DQ Drive-Thru Window

Just in from Ohio – Photo sent by my DIL Erika this afternoon.

Josie the Airedale was wishing it was Starbucks cause she gets a Puppycino (foam in a paper cup)

Not sure if she got a taste of the soft serve ice cream or not.

I thought it was nicely framed. Thanks Erika.

What Does a Dog Think About?

What does a dog think about?

Henry and Josie, the Airedales, were in the driveway when I was getting out of my car the other morning. They looked like they were thinking deeply about something.

Here’s Henry contemplating his shadow.

A dog across the street? The weather? Breakfast?

Let the day begin.
