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!
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.

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.
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.
Henry the Airedale sat serenely while Maura jumped around outside for a few minutes. She shed her coat. I had on wool socks, wool sweater, down vest and wool hat. I could hear my mother in my head, warning me about pneumonia weather or catching a chill. Maura thought that the sun being out and her running around made it an early Spring. She kept her hat on her head. Then put her coat back on. Brrrr. My hands were cold when I got inside.
Henry just sat there, taking in the fresh cool air. No “sit” or “stay”command given.
And no, I did NOT knit her hat.
Beloved. The Weekly Photo Challenge.
Murphy. The Airedale Terrier. A member of the family. Missed by all. RIP.
The grandchildren have grown up significantly since these photos were taken in June 2012.
