Jazzi's Gift Exchange Surprises!

Today we went to the Post Office and picked up a package that arrived while we were in Seattle for the Christmas holiday. (*Actually two packages from Rockford, IL...long story for later.) It was from our buddies in Jazzi's gift exchange, Lil and Angus!! Lil and Angus are Scotties and they sent BabyRockegtDog a large stuffie duck and sent me a giant, white, furry moose. Most excellent!! Baby desqeaked and destuffed her duck immediately, so it is now awaiting the stuffie fairy for reconstruction. Actually I ended up helping her by playing tug of war with it. BUT, when I opened my stuffie I wouldn't allow her to come near him. He is so soft and squeaky and mine all mine!! There was even a gift for Mommy from Evil Ed the Basset, Lil and Angus's brother's pooch: Fancy jewelry with hearts and a Scottie. WooWoo!! And last but not least, there were 2, yes, TWO jars of homemade doggy treats (with fancy paper plates and matching napkins!!!). Oh man we're in poochie heaven!! Gotta go now. My moose needs me to hug him some more.
WelshieKisses & Hugs,
ps-*BabyRocketDog hopes to have a post with pics in the near future too.

Pressies & A Seattle Christmas

We played tug of war with it for quite a while.
Then, we just layed down and sucked on the strings!!

Hello friends! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got nice gifts from Santa Paws. We have been in Bellevue, Washington, staying at the lovely Hilton, enjoying the rainy weather that Seattle is noted for. We bought a little tree with us for our room, but there are huge trees in the different atrium's here, so we hope to get our photos taken next to them before we leave. (Currently mom's camera needs batteries.) We are also happy to report to you that we DID get some pressies from Santa. Of course the squeakers have been excised now, but it was fun doing it. ;<) We got some wonderful eats too. Prime rib for Christmas and Doggylicious greenies as treats. Yum!! The top photos were taken of us with some cool pressies we received while still in Idaho. Thank you sooooo much to our buddies Autumn, Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi. We just love your gifts to us!! We're kinda busy visiting with our sissy and her husband, but we'll try to get back to you all real soon.

No Presents Under Our Tree...

Here is Hootie posing under our little white Christmas tree. Notice there aren't any gifts there? That's right. Not one. Mom doesn't trust us anymore since I decided to investigate and found I like to shred tissue paper. Boy that was fun! Yesterday we got a really cool surprise: A Santa stuffie from Autumn (an adorable Lakie we met on FB) and I immediately claimed it as my own. I let Hootie have him after I had de-squeeked him. BOL. Hope you all are having fun getting ready for the holiday. We're excited since our daddy will be home tomorrow and the fun will begin! Until we meet again,
Smooches from,

This Is Dedicated To The One I Love...

Haven't heard anything from my best gal, Sally Ann, lately. Decided I should post this to perhaps spur her on to post on her bloggie!! Sally Ann I miss ya...There are other little ladies that are trying to win my heart, so please get in touch with me. True I have a pin-up gallery on my chair/bed, but Sally Ann you are the featured pooch. (Lacie toys with me, but she does that with all the guys!)
Yearning for my sweetie,

WrestleMania Terrier Style!

Well, the fake tree is up and now our mom is bombarding us with Christmas music. Though we must say that Mommy's Manheim Steamroller CDs are most excellent for bitie face and wrestling!

Lots of Snow & Hootie's New Pajamas

It's been snowing like crazy here and we already have about 10inches. A veritable winter wonderland! Mommy let Hootie and I run loose and romp we did!! Snow flying all over. It was great. Our high temp was 14 degrees today. Tomorrow the high is supposed to be 4degrees. Yikes, that sounds cold. I bet Hootie will be happy that he has those new* pj's.

*Hootie's pajama's were purchased from Warmer Wuffers. Sowena Nute's mama is the seamstress. She makes each pair custom.

ME! & A Plug For Southwest Airedale Terrier Rescue

This photo was taken right before our dad left for Phoenix. I was enjoying my time with him, but when it comes to photographs, I really like to be the center of attention.

Ahhhh yes, that's more like it....

Our 2011 SWAT engagement calendar came in the mail and we are very impressed. There are at least a zillion photos of Airedales in this lovely book, and every photo has a story about the adopted pooch. My only complaint is that I'M not featured in it anywhere!! Is that Welshie discrimination?

Here is some info about SWAT that is included in the engagement calendar. They're good folks.

We're in the lockup at Dr. Hall's for a few days while Mommy stands by our daddy's side for support. (I brought a few "pin-ups" of SallyAnn and Lacie to decorate our kennel.) Even so, we'll be popping in on you to see what's going on in your neck of the woods.

We Are On Canvas For Posterity!!

Oil Painting of Welsh Terrier Hootie & Airedale Baby Rocket Dog [2010] by Amarillis Kroon
Print of painting Three Airedale Terriers[1921] by Otto D. Franz (German, 1871-1963)

Lookie, lookie! Hootie and I are now on canvas for the ages!! This year is a "landmark" birthday for our mommy (Nov 2nd ~ 6-0 years old), so Daddy got her this wonderful birthday gift. This special portrait of us was painted by our buddy Asta's mommy, New York artist, Amarillis Kroon. We think Miss Ami is a modern day Rembrandt! Mom is so thrilled with this portrait of us that she's been carrying it around from room to room since it arrived yesterday. Last night it rested in the folk's loft bedroom. We feel quite honored that Mommy's only wish for a gift was a portrait of us. Thank you Daddy and Miss Ami for making her wish come true!!

ps-For those interested in more of Ami's work or commissioning Asta's mommy to do a painting she has two websites:

Hootie The LadyBug ~ Oops, WelshieBug...

Mommy found this silly childs costume at a yard sale this weekend. What I have to put up with. Sheesh. Take pity on me friends. Baby Rocket Dog can't even look at me! Mommy obviously needs a hobby.

This 'n That & A Recipe Too!

We can not believe it took Mommy over 4 months to get this recipe posted. Oh well. It's the one that Miss Theresa made for Hootie's obedience graduation fête and all us pooches enjoyed it.
The top cartoon was in the funnies last Sunday and made the old gal laugh like a hyena. We hope you also get a kick out of it. The poster pic was sent to us from one of our mommy's oldest and dearest friends, Sister Maria. We thought we should warn you all about that virus. ~ Wouldn't you know a feline is responsible! BOL!!

Baby Rock Star Dog!!

Okay, maybe this is a little misleading. Here's the story: Mommy volunteers to clean the church's teen center once a week. It's called The Rock. Anyway, it usually takes her anywhere from 3 to 5 hours to get The Rock cleaned and she usually takes me with her. Yup, I get to help. Mostly I guard the doors, but sometimes I go up on the stage and lay down. The other day I decided to give the microphone a whirl! See the photo of me singing into it? I decided, just for the day, to change my name to Baby RockStar Dog. The only thing missing is the screaming crowd. What do ya think??
