Airedale fun day

Yesterday was the Airedale Terrier Association winter fun day... and I finally got to meet my blogging buddy, Noah!

He is a wonderful big, strong dale and it was great to see him.

Here he is looking very smart in his red scarf.

He wanted us to all know that he was the top dog - but I didn't mind, I was too busy chasing balls to worry about a small growl between friends.

We played some fun games - the craziest one was a combination of baseball and cricket. I never did quite work out what the rules were, but somehow our team won!

Here's me with my mate, Selby, he's a happy, relaxed dale and it's always good to catch up with him.

It was really warm and sunny, perfect for a winter day. We all sat around and had lunch and many cups of tea and cake. I even managed to lick some of the plates clean while Kay was busy talking.

I sure am hungry all the time these days. Lucky I won lots of treats as prizes - this was a whole bag full of yummy liver cookies and doggie chews. I wanted to scoff the lot, but Kay only let me have a few. Hmmmph.

I love catching up with all my Airedale friends - there were about eight of us there yesterday counting Griffin the new pup. I wish there were even more. If Noah brings his sisters next time, that will certainly boost the numbers!

The next fun day isn't until December... I can't wait. I'll have to work on a new costume for the fancy dress parade - if anyone has any good ideas, let me know.


  1. Um yeah sorry about the growly thing Rubs. I think Willow is going next time hehe. She'd like to meet everyone.
    It was a fun day though. Congrats on all your wins.


  2. You are so lucky that you got to meet Noah, Ruby! We'd sure love to hang out with the both of you!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  3. Looks like you had a great day. We wish we could have been there...Our next meet is on the 12th. Fancy going for another drive?....

  4. Dear Ruby,
    We would LOVE to be there with you all. Instead, it's just Hootie and me making our own fun.
