Happy Memorial Day

Yes, we have off today to cut the grass, plant flowers, eat corn on the cob and burgers! But the remember the real reason is to remember those who have died for our spectacular country. PEACE!
In addition, Violet takes a double take on the new flag. Is that me???

Best thing about the beach - Digging

Digging, scratching, sniffing, pawing and digging some more. That is a GOOD Time!

She's Baaaaccckk

Violet was on her first vacation to the ocean in North Carolina - 9 hours away. Mommy and Violet were very good on the ride but the last 2 hours were LONG......
The beach was lovely, water was warm, and the company was very fun. We still got up early for our morning early we watched the full moon set and the sun rise! Felt like the only family on earth at that time of day.
V loved the beach - see daddy try to keep up! The ocean - NOT SO MUCH!
More stories and pix to come.....
We would like to dedicate this week as a thank you to Uncle Mort.

Tails and Trails

The local SPCA had an event today. Tails for Trails benefited the SPCA and they had a great turn out. Violet frolicked in a new dog park and walking trail. AND once again we have a tired hound!
We met a woman who had a Welsh terrier, however she's owned 4 Airedales and honestly she was wistful chatting about her dales.
Matt and Violet are supportive of our Philadelphia Flyers playoff push! Go Fly boys!

Today was a magnificent cool, sunny day to join the Airedale Terrier Group of Greater Philadelphia. We watched the show, chatted it up and snacked. Violet made many friends, she was the only female there, as a pet, all the boys loved her. No worries Wyatt, you're still her favorite!
Notice the sign - Airedales only, we'll find out if we're 'IN' later in the month. Keeping fingers crossed;)

Bye bye lots of fur

Violet has her summer look a tad early. We are joining the Airedale Terrier club of Greater Philadelphia, including an event on Saturday....we have to look our best for that! AND we're going to the beach in a week.
It's very exhausting being groomed!

splish, splash look @ the big water bowl!

It was 90 degrees in DE yesterday. Being the good airedale parents...we immediately purchased a pool for our beloved furry girl. Mommy was in the freezing water showing her how FUN it is. Daddy was enticing the girl with treats. Alas, it's still just a big water bowl. Even Gustov and Roman are reluctant life guards.

Best 5 bucks you'll ever spend!

Matt, Grant, Nicole and I went to the Lums Pond Dog Show. It was a beautiful day, and we saw lots and lots of hounds. Nicole is the guest photographer today. She has an Akita and bulldog so you won't see any Airedales....not bc she likes Akitas/bulls's because NO, not one, NOT a single Airedale showed up for competition. hmmph! AND Violet had to stay home. So meet the doggies Nicole had a good time with!
