Happy New Year!

Hi hi everyone! It be a new year now, whee! Happy 2008 to you all. Me hopes you all had a nice new year's eve. Me and big Harry missed the chat pawty as we no heared about it until after it be finished, whoops! We all stayed in on new year's eve and we be watching a film. When the bangy bangs be going off, big Harry runned upstairs. Mummy heared banging and water so she went to see what Harry be doing, and guess what my silly big brother did? He gotted in the bath to hide, and he turned on the taps when he was scrabbling, so yes he hided from bangy bangs, but he gived himself a bath too, silly boy!

Me no mind the bangy bangs, me be watching them in the garden with mummy. Me is a brave girl. Me no be scared of anything in life so far. Me be 16 weeks old now. That be 4 months me thinks. Me be 9.5 kilos (21 pounds) fat.

On new year's day, we wented to a new place. It be called Lydiard Country Park. It be a very nice place for walkies. There be lots of doggies there, and lots of human pups too, whee! Me enjoyed meeting lots of peoples and doggies.

This be the big house. We no go inside, but we walked right round the lake. It be good and muddy, whee! Back of car be VERY dirty now, tee hee! Mummy forgetted to bring a towel for feeties.

There be lots of birdies by the lake. Me likes watching the birdies, but me be good girl and me no chase birdies.

We finded a quiet bit of path and Harry be allowed off his lead again. He be a very well behaved boy. Mummy taked bandannas off after this as it be so muddy and they be special. We still has to do bloggy post about Christmas presents, we be lazy!

Me likes sniffy sniffing everywhere. Big Harry just likes to walk. He no like stopping when he be out on walkies, he just want to go quick march!

People be thinking that me be a boy cos me has blue lead and collar. Me has Oscar's puppy collar and lead cos mine be too small now. Me think me needs a pink collar so peoples no thinks me is a boy! People no thinks Harry is a girl though and he has red collar and lead, so me no understand. Daddy says it be because of a certain bit of him that me likes to bite, hmmm!

Mummy likes this big tree. It be in front of the house. Mummy says she be doing a runny race here every summer to raise pennies for Cancer Research UK. She has to run 5km all around, whee! She says we can go and watch her this year!

But do you know what the best part of the walkies be? We meeted another Airedale! Daddy thoughted he seed a fuzzy Airedale bottom up ahead, and he did! He be called Tigger and he be 8. His mummy and daddy liked me and Harry lots and the mummies and daddies did lots of Airedale talkies. Tigger live in another town, but maybe we see him again.

Me gived Tigger big kissies before we say bye. He be very nice boy. His mummy taked lots of photos of me to show her human daughter. Me think she will be nagging mummy for another Airedale puppy!

So that be our new year! We will tell you about Christmas presents soon, me promise. Me no has broken any new toys yet, me be good girl!

Tonight me starts at big girl puppy class. Me be bit scared as me still no can do recall. Mummy be taking lots of cheese to try to make me behave, whee!

Oh Cass, you are such a brave girl. I don't like fireworks and was barking all night!!!

That park looks like fun and how great is it that Harry gets to go off leash. See, when you learn to do your recalls you'll be able to do that too!! Woot!!

happy new year!! Lots of Licks, Ruby

Molly and Taffy said...

Your New Years day walk looked such fun. We love going on long walks and meeting other Airedales is always a bonus.

Poor Harry we do hope he has recovered from all the fireworks and his impromptu bath.

I am sure you will have a good time at big girls puppy class with all the cheese Mum is taking along for you.

Gus said...

Happy New Year to all of you. We wish we had been there to see Harry's face when the water started coming out of the taps. hehehe....

The walkie looks would be great fun to be someplace muddy off lead. I only get desert off lead, and that is just dry and dusty.

Good luck at big girl class

Oh Cassidy, you are so sweet! I think you look like a beautiful girl in your blue. I'm glad you had fun. Happy New Year!

Bogart said...

Cassidy you're such a cutie and isn't it the greatest to run into other Dales? Tigger is a handsome boy!

Tell Harry that I'm not a big fan of the big bangs either - I hide under the covers...


Lorenza said...

Hi, Cassidy!
Poor Harry! Sure the bathroom was not the best place to hide himself!
I am not afraid of fireworks either!
Good luck at your class!
Kisses and hugs

Peanut said...

What a great new year you had - you were so brave with the bang bangs too!

I have the opposite problem as you - I wear a bright blue collar and lead to school and EVERY human there calls me a girl - I think the humans are a little thick :)



Hi Cassidy,
Sounds like your first New Year was exciting. The place where you went for the big walk looks so beautiful. People here are always calling me a boy just cause I'm a bit bigger than Dixie! Either that or they think I'm Dixie's mum!! Mum always has to correct them.
We have given your guys an award so come by and check it out.

Simba said...

That water looks so cold burrrrr.

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

Johann The Dog said...

Happy New Year little one! It's good you aren't scared of anything, hope it stays that way!!! I'm not scared of fireworks either, or other big booms. So Mum and Gracie and I all watch the fireworks. It's fun!

Have fun at class and be good, K?

Woofs, Johann

Lesley Rigby said...

You do have some lovely walks don't you? I checked out Lydiard Park on Google Earth and it looked beautiful.
Tigger had a very nice smile and looked overjoyed to meet you.
Wasn't it clever of Pa to recognise an Airdale bum in the distance - I'll bet he could recognise one by feeling alone? Oh the thought of it makes me go weak at the knees........

Ferndoggle said...

Wow Cassidy, you are one tuff pup! I'm impressed. I used to be scared of thunderstorms & fireworks but I'm not anymore. Only took 10 years!!

Your walkie looks like fun. It's super cold here so we haven't been walking much.


Hercules said...

Happy New Year Harry & Cassidy!

You are a brave girl Cassidy!! (I can't stop laughing abt poor Harry giving himself a bath!!) I don't mind fireworks but I don't like the vaccuum cleaner..

Happy New Year lil' one!

Joe Stains said...

I would have been in that tub right next to Harry and the Doofus would have been outside with you! Tigger sure is a cutie!

Sophie Brador said...

That story about Harry and the bathtub is the funniest thing I've ever heard. Poor guy. It must have been a miserable night for him. I'm like you Cassidy. I don't even notice fireworks. Thank goodness, because I don't like baths.


Girl Girl Hamster said...

How nice to meet a fellow airedale on a walkie. Harry sure walks very fast

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh dear Cassidy, we heard about Harry and the bath incident. He must have gotten a big fright poor boy. That's something I would do!!
It must have been fun meeting Tigger. He looks a handsome lad.

Hugs and tail wags

Hammer said...

Poor Harry, accidentally turning on the bath taps. He would have been scared enuff without getting wet too. The fireworks were cancelled where we live coz of the bad weather. We're flooded in now. You and Harry had a great time on your walk. You're growing into a big girl.
Mum hasn't had time to post our Christmas photos yet. We haven't even had time to open our presents yet. It's been real hectic.
Thanks for signing up to become A04 Troopers in the mission to find Beau.
Enjoy your weekend.
Love from Hammer

Cashew said...

Happy New Year Harry and Cassidy!

Looks like a great park for walkies. I'm glad Mum keeps you on your leash. Little puppies have so much to learn (but you are becoming a big girl so quickly!).

I'm glad to hear you're such a brave girl!


Amber said...

What a great park. I wish there are more park like that here. Is nice to meet friends at the park.

amber :)

jaffeboy said...

wow Cassie, U R indeed a big girl now.

I'm glad you enjoyed the big walkies like Harry.

Big puppy class?! Wow, i'm sure you'll do as well as Oscar. Stay focus on those cheesies ok?!

Baily said...

Happy New Year 2008!!!

Stanley said...

Hey, Sweet Cassie!

You are one brave Airechic! Maybe big Harry will learn some things from you like you learn from him.

Your walkie spot is bootiful, and, it seems to be an Airedale magnet. I hope you get to see that kissie boy, Tigger, again.

Don't be scared about big dog class. I'm sure you'll do great & get lots of cheese too.

Goober love & smooches,
