Tasty Bones

Well, after that fabulous trip to NYC to welcome Asta home from Rome, which involved a rather lovely carriage ride in Central Perk with Maggie (and imp Cassidy and BabyStan who snuck in too), we were both rather pooped.

But we weren't actually getting ready for a nap in the photo above, oh no! While we were away, ma had purchased some rather delicious tripe filled bones.

Whenever I pick up a bone in my teeth, they always chatter! Does that happen to anyone else or am I odd?!

We wasted no time in getting our big Dale jaws around them on a mission to extract all that yummy filling in as short a time as possible.

I opted for the "hold it end-on in your big paws and stick your tongue in method", while Cassidy used me to hold her bone steady and scraped it out with her toothy pegs.

While I was literally glued to the spot, intent on my mission to de-tripe the bone, as you will see Cassidy is a fidget bottom!

Ma reckons we ended up looking like a pair of bookends!

After a bit of a snooze we were back to it later in the day, and I am pleased to tell you that those bones are now hollow!

Looks like Cassidy is willing hers to be filled once more with tripey loveliness again! Ma says she will save them ad put peanut butter or soft cheese or some other delectable food in there for us, whizzo!

Oh, and I can't believe I am posting this, but look what pa did to my beard when he was grooming me the other night. I look like I've been walking head first into a force ten gale! I don't know why my nose looks weird on this photo, it looks fine in real life I can assure you!

Ah nice tripe filled bones. How can you beat that. I stay in one spot like you when I have a bone. Flash moves everywhere. Him and Cassidy are weirdos.

Snowball said...

Those bone looks yummy!

Cassidy, I think you look very cute in the last picture


Stanley said...

Harry Boy!

Looks like you guys came home to one of the best welcomes EVER... TRIPE! Nice work on that bone.

My girl said that one of her earlier Dales, Bert (he's at the Bridge now), and her friend's Dale Rascal both chattered when they were excited! She LOVED it.

And, while I think it's always fun to experiment with new aire styles, a gentleman of your dignity need NOT have to deal with someone messing with his 'stache!

Goober love,

Hi, Harry!
It has been almost a year since I had a bone and you two are making me drool!
Glad you enjoyed them!
I like your last picture. You look soooo cute!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Harry!
I have the same problem that Cassidy does. I definately move everywhere as I eat my bones. You can never stay in just one may taste different somewhere else!

Also, I like the nose 'do' I think you make it look good!

Mmmmmmmm those treats look so tasty - and how nice of you to help Cassidy out by offering your leg to hold hers down with - you are a great big bro!!

And don't worry about your beard - I'm sure it will grow back soon and I don't think it looks too bad :)


Huskee Boy said...

Hey Harry,
I like your windswept look... very fashionable indeed. I am sure it'd be a hit in the Airedale world and very soon, all Airedales will be sporting that look!

Penny & Poppy said...

We love that big juice Aire-nose, Harry! We're glad you enjoyed your tripey bones! Mom says she hasn't seen any tripe in like 40 years so I don't think we'll be getting any in our bones. Peanut butter will have to do!

Kimi Wagner said...

Hey Harry,

You look so hilarious with your beard all brushed back. You made me roll on the floor with laughter. So funny you are!! Ha Ha. Looking at you and Cassidy having so much fun with those bones, I feel like having one myself too.


Gus and Louie said...

Amber-Mae said...

Tripe-filled bones? Yummerz! I like tripe alot coz they're stinkified...We have one of those solid rock bones at home but it's sooo hard to chew. Chloe on the other hand has managed to chip the side...Strong jaws she's got!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Mango said...

Oh no! Not a good look for you at all with your beard all stickin back!


2shibas said...

Oh, Harry. It seems young Cassidy always has to plop herself right beside you, doesn't she? Fievel does it to me, too. I pretend it bothers me, but I think it's kind of sweet.

Those bones look amazing & that last picture of you is priceless!


Finni said...

Two of my favourite things: tripe and bones. Never had them together though, it sounds like heaven.
That windswept look might catch on. Maybe I'll ask mum to do me like that.

You two always make my human smile when your faces pop up on the screen!

Harry and Cassidy - many licks and slurps from the chattering of our teeth but we give a nylabone a good working over. We love Piggie ears but Mumsie thinks they are stinky so we only get those when we go outside for treats!!!

Nice to meet you and we'll add you to our blog so we can connect to bark at cha ....Big Nose Pokes ~

Neko said...

I can't decide what would be better in the bone; marrow,peanut butter or soft cheese. YUM! Love,Neko

Caz said...

Harry why do they post these pics, they think its funny but i bet they don't realise our friends are looking at these pics. Anyway you still look as handsome as ever with your new airecut and cassidy also looks dead smart.
The bones look yummy, I've never had one of them even though I do get lots of tasty snacks those sound like a game in themselves. Peanut butter would be a excellent idea all gooey and mouth watering.
Hope your hoomans fill them soon.
