Hi there! This is Hairy "Hootie" Houdini writing this post. Mom & Dad and I all went to Salt Lake City in June and we adopted a new sister for me from SouthWest Airedale Terrier Rescue. Her name is Jane (it was Cinder Ella) and she is 2 years old. Okay, at first I wasn't real thrilled with her, because I had my peeps all to myself since BabyRocketDog died last November. But, we are getting along quite beautifully now. She tends to get bossy with me and tries to drag me around by my harness or collar, but I always set her straight to let her know I am the Alpha in our little pecking order. Ha! Size does NOT matter. She is over twice my size, but my mighty Welsh growl scares her away from stealing my food or taking a toy that is in my space!
Okay, today we will use our old send-off:
Smooches from pooches,
Hootie and Jane
We would like to tell all those hoomans who are shooting off fireworks and noise making thingies to STOP IT!!! It is just waaaaaayyyyy too scary for us canines. We say GIT!! Now you may think this photo of our mama and sister with face masks on is scary, but NOT as scary as those dumb firecrackers that people think they have to shoot of on the 4th of July. (Mama looks like Baby Rocket Dog when she is up to no good. Terrier eyes! BOL.)
We were safe in our cabin when all the ruckus began, but we could still hear some of the loud noises from town and neighbors. So, we say if you can't be quiet and dignified like us, than GIT!!!
Our dear friend Mitch went to the Rainbow Bridge today to join his girl, Northford Maggie. This is one of our mommy's favorite pictures of them from back in the day. Both Mitch and Maggie were big fans of watermelon, so we're sure they are probably supping on a nice big piece together now.
We send our love and sympathy to Miss Molly and Mitch's hooman family, who we know will miss him and his guarding & carpentry skills so very much.
We wanted to reminisce about our old friends, so went over to visit their blog, which their mama keeps up so beautifully. We'll miss you Mitch, but know that one day we'll all meet again.
Daddy took us for a nice walk in Sandpoint and then we took a drive up to Schweitzer Mountain last week. It was a good day. Daddy has something called Braun Kid Us (we think it has to do with him being strong) so he started coughing, and then his asthma started to act up....WELL, he isn't feeling too great right now, but his dogter gave him some antibiotics to make him better. He better get well soon, because the weather is getting real nice and it's time for looooonnnnng walks!
Hope any friends passing by are having a good day. Blessings on your heads!
Hootie and I have had a few weeks since our haircut now....Our secretary/mama is a bit slow in keeping us up to date. We feel a lot better with all that hair off of us. Today we went out to the Wildlife Refuge and saw egrets, geese, ducks, hawks and an eagle. Daddy said it was a BALDHEADED EAGLE, but it looked like it had plenty of white feathers on his head to us!! Hoomans are pretty funny.
Lalalala....Time to get our winter coats cut. Mommy and Dad think our hairs are getting out of hand so tomorrow morning we go to Doggy Doo to get Doggy Done!
Okay, this is one of Mom's "file photos" of us and not how shabby we look currently. She is trying to get used to her new computer and has not figured out how to get new photos on it yet. She's an old dog getting older and actually doesn't seem able to learn any new tricks readily!! BOL. Will probably urge her to use her old pc tomorrow so we can get a few updated photos of us with our haircuts. Hope you all are having a good March so far. Sending you all... Smooches from pooches, Baby Rocket Dog & brother Hootie
Here's a photo of Mommy and the two of us taken in another life, during the Revolutionary War. Ha! Not really. Mom is just dressed up in her new DAR dress and we wanted in on the photo. Hootie is being his usual Mommy's boy and I am getting ready to lay down, hence, my flying ears!
I am a female, Airedale Terrier and my name is Baby Rocket Dog. I answer to Baby, Babe and even Rocket. I was born on Feb.1st,2007 and my birth Mother's name was Lucy and father was Poof. The bi-peds who are now my parents adopted me from a man from Flagstaff, Arizona when I was 8 weeks old. My little "brother" is Hootie, a Welsh Terrier, and Mom got him on June 30th,2008 from State Line, Washington. His birthday is May 6th,2008.He adores me, as a younger sibling should. I make sure he knows what the pecking order is in our household and only have to put him in line about once a day. I do most of the talking for Hootie.
