Ozzy Comes To Visit

Hello there chaps and chapesses. Finally, it's my turn to post, although this entry still seems to be mostly about my now not-so-little sister.

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.

But he has teeth. Rest assured that although there are lots of gnashers on display in these photos, they were simply having a blast, no malice whatsoever.

I sneaked past while they weren't looking to have a quick cuddle.

Then had a quick pose to show of my full teddy bear hairy Dale effect.

Then decided that if you can't beat them, join them, har har!

There's life in this old dog yet, let me tell you.

Then I left them to it. Though actually they look a bit like they're kissing here. Hmm, I'd keep an eye on your girl if I were you BabyStan!

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.

I think Cassidy may actually have his entire head in her mouth here!

And what a huge mouth it is. Cassidy has a really l-o-n-g Airedale head now!

I'm always saying "Hey Cassidy, why the long face?" Har har, I do make myself chuckle.

Os is not going to let a girl get one over on him though, good for him (I think I may need a few lessons, ahem.)

Just watching the pair of them made me tired. I'm sure I was once as exuberant as them though...zzzzzzz.

Oh ces jeunes ! C'est terrible Harry....tu peux mettre Cassidiy dans une boîte et l'envoyer à Dyos ? Il est fou !
Gros bisous, Faya

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Good idea, Harry...let Cassidy and Os wear themselves out while you rest. Then, later, when Cassidy wants to sleep, you can pester her! It looks like they sure had a great time playing bitey face!

Pippa said...

Looks like they had a great time, but I think you made the right choice of napping.


Huskee and Hershey said...

HARRY!! I love your teddy bear look!! It's a mix of cuteness plus you are oozing sexy charm.. it's like the tousled out of bed look!! Cool!!


Stella said...

Aw, Sweet Mr. Harry!

You look very cuddly all teddy bear-like. I think it's a very good look for you. My Hairy Stanley likes to wrassle, but is not much in the cuddling department. Could I come by sometime for a little brotherly cuddle from you? I'm sure Miss Maggsie wouldn't mind.

That Cassie Girl is a fierce playin' machine! It looks like Os kept her busy, though. I bet that really made you happy. (I know Stanley is very glad to have some other dog take me off his paws for a few hours.)

Goobery love & kissies to you & Cassie,
Stella Bean

Caz and Ludo the cool dude said...

Well Harry I feel totally exhausted after that post the playing and bitey face just wore me out, it was really cool.

You are dead hairy I'm surprised you could see to play bitey face. Mind you I think you are dead Handsome like a big fluffy teddy bear. Caz says she loves your look it's so snuggly and cute make sure your mum don't strip you.

Ludo the cool dude

Persephone and Buster said...

Looks like Chewbaca and a Border-Devouring Velociraptor!

Has Cassidy grown to the proportions of King Kong? She's long, lanky, and obviously ready to rip biplanes from the sky...

Kudos to the human photographer-lackey! The pix are awesome!

Winnie Woo said...

Harry, I think you're just ahead of the fall styles. I met an older gentleman 'dale yesterday and wished I could fuzz out in that fashion.

Deetz said...

Hi Cassidy
Thank you for your lovely comment and it gives me great peace to know that Oscar and Angel Lacylulu and so many others are there with Gizmo. I wish I could have known Oscar. 10 months was too short the pain is always the same though.
Paw hugs Cassidy
I love your teddy bear look..In fact, I am trying to get the same image..I love it when my face is all whoolly looking....

Clover said...

Hi Harry!

I love your furry look!
Love Clover xo

Harry and Cassidy! Looks like you guys had lots of fun together!

We always admire your cute look!!

Momo & Pinot

ps: We've left some pawprints on our white sofa and dad and mom weren't happy about it! hehehe...

Mango said...

I can't believe how genormous your sissie has become. Plus that big crocodile head! I guess Os likes living on the edge. No way I would let those dale jaws around any part of me.

I think you win the fuzzy face award. You look like a big old stuffie.


Hercules said...

Hey Harry!

Your sister is growing into a fine looking dale! I loved the "why the long face" comment...We laughed outloud!

Glad you guys are doing so well! I got my hairs cut for the last time before winter...Hey Harry, I'm gonna be hairy this winter! Haha!

Love, Herc

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...


You awesome golden and black curls are beautiful! I am envious! Everytime I try to grow mine out, the human grooms me and makes the curls go away!

You all did a great job playing some massive bitey face! I was totally wishing I was there! I need to get a sister of my own...or an Os...


Sorry I haven't been around to check on you and all, but you know...humans, blah, blah, blah...

Noah the Airedale said...

Those two sure like to play bitey face. Harry mate, I totally understand why you left the room. That's my trademark hee hee.


Sophie Brador said...

I had a big play like that just the other day. It was kind of fun.


Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Hi Harry and Cassidy!
