Soup Weather

It's raining, it's pouring, this Dale thinks his mama is BORING...

Oh really mama, it's not raining that hard.  Ok, maybe it is raining that hard, but since I'm relatively waterproof (AND wearing my spiffy raincoat), there is absolutely no reason to not go for an hour-long evening walkie.

I'm W-A-I-T-I-N-G

See?  That wasn't so bad.  And there is chicken-lentil-vegetable soup waiting for me.  The house smells delish and I've worked up quite an appetite.  YUMMO!

Giving Thanks (for Airedale Puppies)

Looking for a little something to make your holiday season bright? Love a challenge? Cannot resist the cuteness that is the fuzzy mug of a baby Airedale?

Then Cheryl of Arley Hall Airedales might be the right person to talk to about making those holiday wishes come true. Callie and Chip and also Glory and Rhett are going to be proud Dale parents!

There will be 2 - yes, 2 - litters in December so if you yearn to hear the pitter-pat of puppy feet go fill out her puppy questionnAIRE now!

Me and Marjorie

Meet Marjorie.

Marjorie is AWESOME.  Marjorie came running - not walking, RUNNING, out of Starbucks when she saw my fuzzy butt walk by.  Marjorie also has an Airedale (awesome points), she recognized me from my blog (major awesome points), and she's an avid follower of my adventures and has turned on all of her friends and family to the coolness that is To Aire is Divine (too cool for school, Marjorie!).

YOU ROCK Marjorie!  Big Aire Kisses to you and your sweet Dale!

As you may already know, I am always pleased when packages arrive with my name on them.  You want an opinion?  YOU GOT IT

Today a box of treats arrived from the fine folks at Barksters.  But these weren't treats like anything I've ever seen before - they're "krisps", mama says that they have the texture of Munchos (all of the gourmet humans with fine, exotic taste will understand this).  They're all-natural, wheat-free, glute-free, low in fat (take note pups who have been told they need to shed some poundage - get your humans to buy these!), and made in the good ol' US of A.

I got a brown rice and chicken package and a sweet potato and beef one.  I made my choice of which to try first...

And then tried to open the damn thing myself.

If the beef one won't open, try the chicken one, I thought to myself as I used my mighty paws to destroy the packaging.

So here is a closeup of the texture - they're light and crispy as opposed to the crunch of a traditional dog biscuit.  Different, indeed.  This is the very last thing that this particular Barkster will ever see...

They come in a plain inside bag that doesn't look that interesting...

Until you get your whole nose inside.  Then... INTERESTING

The bag is well-sized for the mighty Airedale nose.  Some of you with smaller schnozolas may encounter more difficulty getting into the bag.  For you I suggest grabbing it, and shaking violently from side to side - a Barkster snowstorm!

At first I wasn't sure - that texture sure was something I had never experienced before - but after a few tries I was convinced.  Thanks Barksters!

Strutting the Red Carpet

Of course this red carpet must be for me - WHO ELSE COULD IT BE FOR?

Come on - THIS IS A MIGHTY STICK - that I have dragged all over town.  Humans have been smiling and laughing for almost two hours now at my adorable Airedale antics.  They MUST have rolled out the red carpet for me.

No autographs, please!
