Yes, it's true. On 29th September last year I came to live with ma and pa. How much I've nejoyed that year! It almost feels like I've been here forever. I am so grateful that they took a chance on adopting an old codger like me, and I hope they know how much I love them. I know young Oscar had a paw in getting me this lovely new home, and I will be eternally grateful to him.
I'm going to stop now before I get too teary eyed, but just thought I'd leave you with a small selection of photos from the last year, which are in no particular order.

Following on from Stanley's recent post about being a tad hairy, I think I am in a similar position! Where on earth are my eyes?!
The other day a very handsome young man came to spend the day with us while his ma went to a wedding. He's called Oscar, though he's more commonly known as Os. He was a friend of our Oscar, but he has graciously accepted us as his new Airedale buddies.
This is how he & Cassidy spent 99% of the day!
As you can see by me departing down the hallway, I was grateful for the time off from Cassidy's crocodale attacks!
I'm sure Cassidy thought he was just a rather large toy.
Then decided that if you can't beat them, join them, har har!
But no, it was soon back to bitey face game round 16. You may notice Os looks somewhat trimmer and tidier here. Well, that's because ma had a little go at stripping his hair, and before she know it, he was all groomed! His ma was very impressed when she came to pick him up, and I think she'll bring him over next time he needs grooming. Ma said a Border Terrier is far easier to strip than an Airedale.
And what a huge mouth it is. Cassidy has a really l-o-n-g Airedale head now!

As soon as daddy opened the box we could smell something really yummy!
Look! A beautiful Airedale card, some pumpkin and carob cookies, which mummy is very tempted to try as they smell so good, a Texas Taffy chew, and a really cool grape tuggy/tennis ball toy. What a very lucky girl I am!
Mummy tried to take a photo of us waiting nicely for a cookie, but they smelt so good that we were both jumping up and down like crazy dogs and there was no chance of a decent photo, but I can tell you they were scrumptious!
My toy is great fun too!
Here are my cards. The top one is from Maggie & Mitch, the bottom left is from Molly & Taffy, and the one on the bottom right is from my doggy mum Maggie, my brother Mick and all my other relatives at Sherifs Airedales. That's my mummy on the card.
Asta emailed me this lovely card. Isn't she a sweetheart? It's so pretty and pink, and that cake looks almost too good to eat!
Thanks to everyone who left birthday messages here, they were lovely!

I didn't get any presents, cos mummy and daddy say (quite rightly) that I already have everything I could ever need - toys, a big cosy bed, yummy foodies, a big brother to annoy, a mummy and daddy who love me, walkies every day, friends to play with....and that a lot of doggies are nowhere near as lucky, so we are going to donate some money to the Airedale Terrier Health Fund
Anyway, I thought you might like to look over some photos from my first year. You may have seen some of them already if you've followed my bloggy from the start.
This is my mummy Maggie, me and my brother and sissies on September 9th last year. You can't really see us, we're teeny black things by our mummy's tum.
And here we are at 2 weeks old. Looking more like baby Rotties, tee hee!
Aw, this is when I hurted my back leggy after doing a spot of counter surfing. Remember, I had to have about 4 weeks bed rest.
Tee hee, this is me posing in Oscar's Doggles. Do I look cool?
And here I am after my first big win in the show ring. I won Best Puppy in Show, whee!
To Roxy, who I see about once a month at hair-pulling torture class. This photo was taken by her daddy who is a really good photographer. She's a stick-a-holic!
And to Chester. I haven't met up with him since we all went to our new homes, but we're going to meet up at the WESWATC fun day in October for a big family get together.
