I Got You Babe

This morning mama and I suited up early for our first walkie of the day... and for 1.5 hours did not see one person. A few cars, but no people. Very surreal. I suppose that means that most people are at home with the ones they love, opening presents and celebrating Christmas.

I've got mama and she's got me - we are each others' presents. It has been a really hard year for us, and holidays don't seem like a time for us to celebrate this time around. So we just spend lots and lots of time together, and there is nowhere I'd rather be, and no one who I'd rather walk with than my mama (and that's saying a lot - I am a very demanding walker).

Happy Holidays to everyone - from both of us...

Dearest Bogie,

I could see that you had a great X-mas with the most important person in your world today. Your bond with your mama is becoming a very special bond, it is very obvious and it will only grow stronger. This has been a very heart breaking year for you and your mama (as well as the entire Airedale world), however, the strength you both have shown has been an inspiration to many. You are a great boy (a handsome one that is), and a great protector for your mama. I know that she will be ok as long as you are with her!

I didn't really celebrate X-mas this either either. Mum took me up to a snowy mountain and we walked the trails for about an hour and a half. I spent it with my most important person too!!

Merry Christmas Bogie and Lulu!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Hi Bogart and Mom,
When I had Joker we would get up every morning at day light 365 days a year and we would walk at least 1 hour, but more often than not 1 and a half to 2 hours.
365 days a year,rain or shine, hot or cold. I know the drill!!! We loved it!! It kept Joker going!

We took that same early morning walkie and didn't run into a soul either, Bogie! It's nice and peaceful, isn't it?!
The two of you had the gift of love for Christmas and it doesn't get any better than that!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Happy Holidays Bogart. So many changes this year, but you have been the best Airedale ever and kept your mama going.


Dawn said...

Very Happy Holidays are one special pal for your Mama. This year was beyond difficult for you but you kept your Mama going, and she kept you going and that's the best thing you can do at times like these. Here's to a softer, more relaxed 2010 for the two of you! -Katie and Dawn in Michigan

Nothing is better than to spend time with those you love.

I think the love between a 'dale and his/her mama is about the best present in the world! You've both been in our thoughts this holiday season! We love you!!
