My New Pal Charlie

Hey... that's an AIREDALE!!! Mom, dad, did you know about this? Was this planned? Why yes it was, a playdate for me with a cool boy Dale named Charlie.

Ok, lets get the play bows out of the way... and get right to some sniffin'. You're an awfully cute boy, I really like your spiffy vest! And you know what... even tho I don't like most other boy dogs there is just something special about meeting other Airedales - so LETS WALK!

Isn't Charlie handsome? He's a little younger than me, so he's still got some puppy-black-face, but he's working on a fine beard and moustache. And check out that cool white patch on his chest! I want one of those... The pretty Border Collie next to him is his sister Casey. Doesn't she have the coolest eyes you've ever seen? She's a sweetie-pie :)

After the walkie and general get-to-know-you, we headed over to the Lucky Lab for some refreshment.

Follow me Charlie, I know the way...

I'm really impressed with Charlie's posture, he's quite a graceful boy.

Should we turn the cute Airedale Eyes on 'em to get some treats, Charlie? Whaddaya think?

Yup, he's a professional at this treat-getting, and he seemed to think that my Bogart treats were tasty.

Here I am exhibiting a slightly more refined technique of beef heart procurement...

There were lots of other doggies at the Lucky Lab, which was of course distracting. Made me a little cranky. Sorry for that Charlie, I didn't mean to growl at ya. It's just that I can be kind of weirdly protective of mama sometimes (even when she's begging for the hug and full-on Dale kissin' that you so expertly gave her). I promise to work on that, and you'll see, the next time we get together I won't be so growly...

So whaddaya say Charlie, would you like to hang out again sometime soon? I sure would!!! We all had a GREAT time with you, Casey, and your mama & dad, and are looking forward to seeing you all again!!!
