Tags & Awards

Good morning all! I hope you're all jolly well and have caught up on your snoozes after a weekend of pawtying. Not long now until Baby & Huskee Boys wedding and Koobuss' Valentines Pawty. Little Miss Cassidy seems much perkier, so I think she'll be in fine form for her date with BabyStan, though ma and pa said NO SKIING or other dangerous sports! I hope to have a date too. I haven't asked the lady in question yet, but will be doing so shortly, so I do hope she says yes and hasn't already planned to go with another chap.

Anyway, moving on. Sweet little Asta awarded us, or rather our blog, this rather fine "E for Excellent" award . Thanks awfully dear girl.

She says we have to pass it on to 10 other Bloggers so...we have decided to award it to all our Airedale bloggy buddies. We are slowly but surely growing in numbers, and making more and more black and tan pals!

We have also been tagged for 2 different games. Firstly by Momo and her baby brother Pinot. We have to tag 3 other kitties, beans, woofies, or any other assorted animal.

The question is "What three things would you do that you have never done before, if you knew you wouldn't get caught, get in trouble, or suffer any consequences?"

Oh my, what a question!

1. Work out how to open the fridge door so I could feast all on the yummy stuff contained within, starting with the cheese, no the ham, no the bread, no the...
2. Put up a security door that only I could open to stop Cassidy sleeping on my bed in my hidey hole under the stairs!
3. Go off lead whenever we went to the park so I could have a proper sniff about. I would not chase off after a squirrel never to be seen again I swear!

1. Work out how to open my prison so me could escape, cos handsome prince is taking a long time to come to rescue me (Me thinks Teka be sending tips on this, tee hee!)
2. Make my furs magically fall out so mummy didn't have to hand strip me
3. Get upstairs so me can go and see mummy and daddy in mornings. Me knows Harry gets to go up there for morning snuggles and me no thinks it's fair!

We tag

Gus and Louie

Secondly our new buddy Mango tagged us to tell 7 things you previously didn't know about us. Hmm, let's see...

1. Harry - At my old house I lived with two sisters, a German Shepherd who is older than me, and a younger Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. We see a lot of German Shepherd's around here and I always get excited thinking maybe it's my sister.

2. Cassidy - I have now lost all my front puppy teethies, and my HUGE big back teethies are coming through, ouchie!

3. Harry - I did some splendid counter surfing while ma and pa were out yesterday and managed to grab the treat bucket containing about 5 pig ears, 10 dried chicken breast strips, 2 bags of my James Wellbeloved Cracker Jack treats, a bag of Newman's Own treats that we got sent by our friends Ezzy Rider and Jagger as part of the Planet Airedale Secret Santa, some tripe sticks and lots of my glucosamine chewies for my achy joints! I got no dinner last night and no breakfast this morning, but it was still worth it!

4. Cassidy - Me can start entering shows from 9th March when me will be 6 months old, provided my leggy be given the all clear. It be so much better over last few days, and me even gets a mini walkie this evening, whee!

5. Harry - I don't like the wooden floors at home at all and refuse to walk on them. That's why readers of Oscar's blog may have noticed that ma and pa have far more rugs than they used to!

6. Cassidy - Me and all my brothers and sissies be named after Rolling Stones songs for our "posh names" 'cos our daddy be called Jumpin' Jack Flash. Me be Ruby Tuesday, Lottie be Lady Jane, Roxy be Honky Tonk Woman. Me no knows what my brothers "posh names" be called, but my brother Mick who still live with our mummy Maggie at Sherifs Airedales be called Mick as his pet name after Mick Jagger!

7. Harry - I actually like having a nice warm bath/shower down, shh that's our secret. It's good for my joints you see, it's not that I like smelling all clean obviously!

I think a lot of you have played this game, but if you haven't and you want to play, consider yourself duly tagged!

Penny & Poppy said...

Wow, Harry, you really got the prize with all those treats! Counter surfing when Mom and Dad aren't home rocks! We try...but they make sure everything is so far back on the countertops that we can't get to it even with the "leapandgrab". Hi to Cassidy!

Gus said...

Wow. I loved learning about the two of you, particularly about Harry's excellent counter surfing adventure! Teka says she is trying to get a video camera, but will send written notes so Harry can coach you on opening the crate. Have a great short walkie, and take care!

Ferndoggle said...

Nice job on the counter surfing dude!! I'm very impressed.

I actually like a nice warm bath too...just don't tell my sisters. They'll call me a sissy.


Scruffy & Lacie said... have put Mumsie into a state of depression. She THOUGHT Dale countersurfing was just a puppy thing. ha ha ha ha ha!!! Thankfully,you got her educated! I love to steal her shoes outta the garage and run off with them. Mean old Mumsie tied a piece of string to one of her shoes...(a Croc...have those in the UK??) Anyway, I grabbed it...she was hidin' on the other side of the door and she yelled leaveit!!! and flung a soda can filled with pennies at the door.

Oh the shame of being caught.

But it was a fun game...Mumsie loved it. BUT I still steal shoes.

The video of Cassidy cryin' in her crate made me whine....

I can't wait to escort her to the Valentine's Day Pawty. I promise to carefully look after as I don't wanna have her ski and hurt her leggy again....



Tofu Burger said...

Oh Harry you are soo cool! I've never been able to counter surf, I'm too short! Love you guys!


Mango said...

Harry! Awesome counter surfing. You must have passed out from all those goodies.

I've never been hand stripped, but I hear its really ouchy! That's the price of beauty, little princess.

Fun to learn more about you two.


Gus and Louie said...

Big Sloppy Kisses

Lesley Rigby said...

Harry - You're a B****r! I wouldn't have liked to clean that lot up if it hadn't stayed down. Goodness knows how ill you felt.....

Cassidy - I really hope your handsome Prince arrives soon. Don't forget your Valentine cards.

Amber-Mae said...

Congrats on your award! Haha, wish I could open the fridge door without getting into trouble. But the problem is, my bad bad kitty sistas are just in the back kitchen & they can see in full view, of what I'm doing & then they will tell my hoomans & then I will have to face the music. Gggrrr...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Maggie & Mitch said...

We think that's pretty clever for you to wish that your fur miraculous falls out so you don't have to be stripped! You're pretty smart for being so young, Cassidy!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

I am so with you on the wooden floors Harry!

I get laughed at here, cos I skid about when the door bell goes, of course I always think it is for me!

I am pleased to hear wee Cassidy is feeling a bit better too.

Have a grrrrrrreat weekend, love and licks, Marvin in Sunny Scotland xxxx

Finni said...

Hey Harry,
How're you feeling after your treat bucket raid. I think my mum would 'fast' me for a week after something like that. Nice going!
Finni xx

Frasier said...

Hi Harry
I need to take lessons from you on countersurfing!I can jump though

Hercules said...

I LOVE counter surfing, though Mom is getting too smart and pushing everthing so far back I can't reach it. She also knows the sound of my feet on the kitchen floor, so if I'm quite, she comes running...It's like she is everywhere!

Love, Hercules

ps SCORE on all those treats!

T-man said...

Harry, you are very talented being able to open fridge doors and counter surf! Have you ever thought of teaching a class? :)

Joe Stains said...

Holy cow you really ate alllll that stuff Harry?? you are my hero. Thanks for the tip on the plaque stuff, Mom found a local store that carries it and she is going to go find it for me tomorrow!!

Molly and Taffy said...

Congratulations on your Excellence award, well deserved it is too!

Harry you must surely be the No 1Dale Counter Surfer on the Planet, what a brilliant days work. Did you have tummy ache afterwards? We would have just loved to have seen the look on your Ma and Pa's face when they came home!

Bit unfair though starving you, I mean to say do hoomans starve themselves after chomping through their boxes of treats of choccies and bikkies? Heck NO!

Have a great weekend.

Molly and Taffy

Peanut said...

Harry I will hop the first plane over and show you how to open the fridge. Then you can help yourself but then your mom might put a lock on it like my mom has so I can't open it anymore. Good job on the coutner surfing.
