A Pressie from Putter

We got an envelope in the mail from our goodest and bestest friend, Putter, on Wednesday!
It's a list of Airedale rules that need to be read over and over and followed to the letter! Mom said that she'd be framing this and hanging it in the kitchen!Can you read it?
It says:

1. The Airedale is not allowed in the house.
2. Okay, the Airedale is allowed in the house, but only in certain rooms.
3. The Airedale is allowed in all rooms, but has to stay off the furniture.
4. The Airedale is only allowed on the old furniture.
5. Fine, the Airedale is allowed on all the furniture, but is not allowed to sleep with the humans on the bed.
6. All right, the Airedale is allowed on the bed, but only by invitation.
7. The Airedale can sleep on the bed whenever he wants, but not under the covers.
8. The Airedale can sleep under the covers every night.
9. Humans must ask permission to sleep under the cover with the Airedale!
10. In all cases of dispute...........
the Airedale rules!

What do you think? Is the kitchen the best room for this to hang and should it be framed in gold?

We met new Airedale friends recently! Their names are Inky and Molly and they have a blog!
They're adorable and very normal mischievous Dales and if you haven't met them, please stop by and say hi when you get a chance! Their comment section is now working and I'm sure they'd all love to hear from us!

And we have another new blog to tell you about! This one is about Minnie and Mickey, the Cockatiels! This is Mickey Mouse cockatiel! Isn't he just beautiful!The writer of this blog is mom's 11 year old niece! You've just got to stop by and see Minnie and Mickey's itsy bitsy babies, Donald and Daisy! They're being hand-raised!

So until next time.....................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

  2. Those are good rules. You will have to let us know if your parents obey them or not.


  3. Good idea to frame the rules in gold. I'd aim a spotlight on them so that they can be read at all times!

  9. Hey M and M
    I think you should post the rules at human eye level. Do u think I can pass as an airedale?

    Well stop by your new friends. Mickey mouse is a Q T pie.


  10. Excellent rules! And we're so glad Putter is feeling better. We'll go over and visit those new blogs now.

  12. Great rules and should apply to all the doggies! =D
    Have a great weekend!


  13. Those rules are great! It should definately be framed in gold and I think you should have a copy placed in every room to serve as a constant reminder to your parents.

  14. I think the new rules are perfect. =) Heading over to say hi to your new friends.

  15. I am stopping over from Rocky Creek Scotties blog and have to tell you that your dogs are just too cute!!! Give Maggie and Mitch a hug from California!!


  16. M&M, I am going to be so outnumbered by terrierists when I am in the US. I think it will be obvious, since I will be the unique one out of the bunch, that all terriers must obey the lab ... Okay, lab X.

    My mom has a big important question for you. She is wondering how long the hike on Sleeping Giant is and how rigorous it is. She is wondering whether my shoulders can take it, but I keep telling her, I can do anything!!!


  17. OMD!

    I wonder if those rules apply to Siberians?

    Tank woo fur sharing them AND your new bloggie pals!

    I'm off to chekhk on 'em!


  18. Great rules to live by, Maggie and Mitch!

  20. In gold! For sure.. How about putting it on your front door for all visitors to read? ;)


  21. Hehe! Love those rules. Should be framed in something to match your handsome furs. And one or two in every room. Just in case.

  25. Maggie and Mitch,
    Personally WE think The Rules should be in the bathroom...right next to the toilet...where the humines can read them (and be reminded of them) OFTEN. Also so that any house guests know the house rules right away!

    We've just come back from visiting Inky and Molly. Two more awesome airedales. Yep. We like them

    Finally - thanks ever so much for your kind support during Fergi's "condition" and "procedure". Friends make things like the past week sooooo much easier!

    Your buds,
    Jake and Fergi

  26. Those are great rules. We may just have to see if we can tweak them for Sibes too. We just have to go meet Mickey and Minnie.

    woos, the OP Pack

  27. Airedale rules! What a great rule and definitely worth being framed. It ties in nicely with the post that I've tagged you guys for. Come over and see what it is.

  28. Those Airedale rules are really Airedale realities. Are Inky and molly as glutonous as youse guys/ Is that and Airedale trait or just a Maggie and Mitch trait?
    - TBH

  29. OMD....those rules are hilarious! My Mom thought they were so funny she read them to my Dad who also laughed and they said there should be one exactly like that for the Rhodesian Ridgeback too. :)


  30. Good evening m & m
    Japan of rain on wonderful weekend.
    Slowly, it spends it at home.
    The flower in the garden of m & m is beautiful.
    It enjoys parakeet's lovely blog. :D

  34. hi m & m!

  35. Love those rules!! How are you going to punish your mom and dad if they don't follow them?

  36. Would you mind if we took that and changed it a little to read WFT rules???Love A+A

  37. Ha roo roo roo! Those are some mighty fine rules!
    Tail wags,

  38. It's so interesting how we all have our own doggie preference. Love them all but we do have which breed captures out hearts!
    I LOVE birds and have five of them in the family room! I need their chatter to wake up to in the mornings!

  39. Those are such great Airedale Rules! I wonder if they have some Schnauzer Rules as well...*grins* Thanks for sharing them with us!


  40. Oh goodness. My mom had cockatiels FOREVER and she misses them so much. She'll LOVE that blog!

    Big Pupi knew mom's 'tiels and still responds to their voices and calls on tv and in the pet store. He goes crazy trying to find them!

  41. Those are good rules and I think they apply to Boston Terriers too! I am going to head on over and see those birds, so cool!!

  42. OMDog...that pizza looks so yummerables!

    & I'm gonna go by & say hi to the birdies too..

    I wonder if they would like to play with me?
