Hi hi,

Sorry if any of you have been wondering where we are! We are OK, just had a bit of Blogging mindblock, plus mummy and daddy have been very busy decorating (the house is looking really pretty, we will have to take some photos).

I went to my first show in a few months on Sunday and I won my class (Junior dog or bitch), then got reserve best of breed, whee! I have 2 more pretty rosettes for my collection.

Harry has a poorly mouth this week. Mummy and daddy noticed he was struggling to eat at the weekend, and it was getting worse by Monday. He wanted to eat and drink, but just didn't seem able to (I was more than willing to eat his din dins for him, tee hee!), and was really lethargic. Anyway, after a vet visit, he was found to have a high temperature and a big lump under his tongue which vet hoped was an abscess but said might be a lump which would have to be biopsied if it didn't shrink with anti-biotics etc. Well the bad news is it burst the next day, yuck yuck and triple yuck, but the good news is that it is shrinking now and Harry is able to eat and drink much more easily, yay! We are now all fairly happy it is an abscess and once he has finished his tablets, that will be the end of it, phew.

We are off to the West of England Airedale Club fun day on Sunday, so I am looking forward to all the fun and games and other Dales that will be there. Not looking forward so much to the fancy dress...Harry is going to wear Oscar's cowboy outfit that Butchy & Snicker's mummy made, and I am going to wear Oscar's red hoodie & his Doggles, so I think that makes it more bearable to be looking silly don't you? We will get photos.

Anyway, that's the main news from us!

Hi Doogs! I have missed you while I've been locked up here at the nuthouse with nothing but porridge and water. Well ok,it's not really porridge, it's premium food, but hey I gotta do SOMETHING to get other doogs to feel sorry for me, right? Anyways, The Woman has been what she calls "Busy" and she has kept me biting my foot because I couldn't blog. But me and Mojo cracked the password!

Slobbers to you guys!

Gosh I was so afraid when I was reading your post because of Gizmo and his lump under his tongue. I just breathed a sigh of relief to know that it burst and is shrinking and almost gone. I am so thankful for that because I love you both so much
