My New AireFriend and Classmate

I started basic obedience yesterday and look who I ran into in the parking lot before class!

His name is Wyatt and he's 6 months old so we're almost the exact same age.   I"m on the right and he's on the left.   I'm a little bit bigger than he is.   He's a rescue boy from Airedale Rescue in CT and we're hoping that maybe we can all go to Barktoberfest together in October!   It would be my very first time there!   Molly wasn't too crazy about it the last time she went but Mitch sure did love to go!

I"m off to a great start at obedience class!
I can't wait to see my new AireFriend again next week!

A Dog Year

One of mom and dad's very dear friends send a book in the mail and mom has started to read it.  She's about halfway through it and she says that it's a wonderful story.   The book is called "A Dog Year" and it's by an author named Jon Katz.   She's never read a book by this author before but she noticed on one of the first pages that Mr. Katz has written many books.  

 "In his popular and widely praised Running to the Mountain, Jon Katz wrote of the strength and support he found in the massive forms of his two yellow Labrador retrievers, Julius and Stanley. When the Labs were six and seven, a breeder who’d read his book contacted Katz to say she had a dog that was meant for him—a two-year-old border collie named Devon, well bred but high-strung and homeless. Katz already had a full canine complement, but instinct overruled reason, and soon thereafter he brought Devon home.

A Dog Year: Twelve Months, Four Dogs, and Me is the story of how Devon and Jon—and Julius and Stanley—came to terms with each other. It shows how a man discovered a lot about himself through one dog (and then another) whose temperament seemed as different from his own as day is from night. It is a story of trust and understanding, of life and death, of continuity and change. It is by turns insightful, hilarious, and deeply moving."

Please read us the story, mom!
 We will be waiting for you upstairs all tucked in.

Flower Friday

We don't have much new stuffs blooming in our yard this week so mom brought the camera along on our walkies.
 Mom had to look this one up because she didn't know what it was.  We now know that it's Lantana☺

 White Cleome with artistic duckies~
 We found this evil-looking thistle~
 We have been having a lot of rain and we found lots of mushrooms along our route. 
 You can't tell from the picture, but this mushroom was HUGE!
 Squirrel alert!
 This mushroom was growing inside a hole in the tree.  
 Our nutty mom thinks that mushrooms are just as pretty as flowers are. 
 I can't wait to get home and have a nice cool drink of water!


 We had fun on our walk but now it's time for our cookie, mom!
Happy Friday, everybuddy!

I'm Sorry

I did a bad thing.   I stole mom's pretty wool pansy mat off the cobbler's bench and I pulled some of the pretty purple beads off of it.   I didn't eat any of the beads.  I just spit them out and she found them on the floor.
I'm sorry, mom.   I didn't mean to do it.
I have so many bigboy privileges that mom forgets that I'm still a puppy.  

 Sunday morning, I got to go to the hardware store with dad.  
 He was shopping for plumbing parts. 
Thanks for taking me along with you, dad.     Now I don't feel so bad for blemishing mom's pansy mat.

Love ya lots♥

Blue Buffalo Health Bars

We chose Blue Buffalo Health Bars this month to review for Miss Sydney and Chewy.    The Fed Ex man brought the box on Saturday.

We can smell them through the sealed package and they smell so yummy! 
No chicken/poultry by-product meals.  No corn, wheat or soy.  No artificial preservatives.  No artificial flavors.   Baked with bacon, egg, and cheese.  You can't go wrong!
And guess what?  These Blue Wilderness Health Bars are inspired by Blue himself and take a look at Blue~
He's an AireBoy so you REALLY can't go wrong with these treats!
Mom is forever asking us to "wait" and she forever gets frustrated with us because we are so overly anxious that we never wait!
Until now!!   MACKIE WAITED!!!!!!  And mom couldn't stop smiling☺  Luckily, she didn't feed him the entire bag!
Thanks for making me look bad, Mackie!   You're 5 months old and I'm 4.5 years old!
Miss Sydney sent us a 16 oz bag!  That's a LOT of cookies and it fills our cookie jar all the way to the tippity top!
Thank you so much for letting us review the Blue Buffalo Health Bars, Miss Sydney!  We absolutely LOVE them!

Too Many Toofies

Mom says that if I lose any more toofies, I'm not going to be able to chew my meals!

 I think I'll do just fine, mom, but just in case, maybe you should have extra ice cream in the freezer just for me!
 These are the ones that I lost yesterday.  
 Mom keeps our toofies in this heart-shaped box that she and dad and Maggie and Mitch bought on Nantucket years ago.  
 The Tooth Fairy left me this Good Boy tag.  Do you notice that my Good Boy tag is an AireBoy?  That makes it even better!
 I like the Tooth Fairy.  She's very smart!
Love ya lots♥
