Last week in NYC. Seen while walking
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.
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.
The boys run the Airedales on the front yard at their other grandmother’s home. Hardy, Virginia. Chilly but beautiful outside.
Petey was walking on the sidewalk along the PGH Marathon route ( with Jacob).
I said what everyone probably always says to Jacob- “Oh my goodness! “Little Rascals Dog!” (filmed in the 1930’s as it turns out, YIKES)
Jacob graciously allowed me to photograph Petey AND told me how he found Petey in an animal shelter. Petey has a Mickey Mouse Mark on the top of his head and Jacob used to have a dog named Mickey.
A forever home for Petey is a very happy story. Lucky dog.
Guest Blogger Kim Teeple (my daughter’s sister-in-law) got a new DSLR camera.
She posted this photograph on her Facebook page and her brother James (my son-in-law) thought it would be a perfect guest blog. I agree.
“Our 9 year old Husky mix, Samson, loves the snow. I captured him with my new Canon Rebel T6 at a rare moment when he decided to stay in one spot. It was a cold snowy day in early January, 2018 at our home in Mansfield, Ohio. For 2018, my husband, Jeff, and I resolved to learn photography for our future of traveling North America in our KZ Venom Fifth Wheel. . Follow along on our travels at TeeplesTravel.com to watch our budding skills improve.”
