Staying with Nanny Lydia

My Mummy and Daddy are spending these first 2 weeks of 2008 in Johannesburg South Africa, and I am camping here in Camp Alice, with Aunt Lydia, Alice the queen and Dave the dog, back in Seattle. The weather has been atrociously wet, cold, grey and windy. Nanny Lydia has allowed us stay more often indoors.
Her living room has been converted into a doggie playground, and there are comfy cushions for us to lay in and lounge around. Alice perches on the main sofa to watch the world go by but I like laying in this brown bagel bed. Doggie toys are in boxes all around us and we play till we drop dead tired.

See all the toys around us? This is doggie heaven. That is Cedar in the top left corner of the pic. I like Cedar, but sometimes, Dave and I gang up on him, and try to herd him like sheep. He can run like the wind.

In Seattle, it really does get miserably wet and cold outdoors, its a good thing to stay warm and dry indoors. I like to stay indoors and play with toys. I have been quite bald these last couple of weeks, because Mum had just handstripped me before she left for South Africa to visit Daddy's family. She took me down all the way to the skin, and I do get cold in winter. Its a good thing my Nanny lets me play indoors. Ha, finally, my coat on my saddle (the black parts) are starting to grow in, and I am looking nice. My head still needs a couple of weeks of hair growth.

Hi Cassidy,

glad you're being handstripped like me. Ha Ha. I have so much fur, it takes my Mum 12 hours hard labour to groom me. She spreads it out over 4 days, and I get groomed in parts. I bet you are the same like me - very strange in between days. I think I should get Mum to post how she handstrips me the next round, probably in the coming spring.

Hi Maggie and Mitch,

You're right!! It is that same Lydia from the yahoo group that makes all these wonderful treats for us dales. She sends them all over the world through her games. My mum really looks up to Aunt Lydia, and has learnt so much from her. Aunt Lydia is a real Airedale expert. I get to eat tonnes of those delicious treats when I stay at Nanny's Lydia's home. You can just imagine how lucky I am.

Hi, Kimi! We haven't met before but I love airedales. My best friend is a giant airedale. I'm a raw fed dog too. And I also have the same problem as you with my name. Everyone seems to think that Keeley is a girl's name, but it's not and I'm a boy. It's a Gaelic name that means handsome. Anyhow, I just wanted to tell you that I tagged you on my blog to share 7 weird things about yourself. Check you later!
