Merry Christmas!

Well, it's Christmas morning here - but there are no presents for dogs. Kay had to jet off to America to visit her Mom and has left us with Neil. He is very good for walkies and runs on the beach, but not so good for presents.

Neil's presents have been hidden around the house - Kay is going to send clues on where they are, but I bet we can help him find them with just our superior noses. We have been promised our prezzies when she gets back. We can wait, no worries.

Here's the kind of fun we have with Neil, we're not supposed to use the kids play equipment, but when no one is looking we have a bit of fun!

To all our blogging friends, we want to wish you a very happy holiday season and a wonderful new year.

All the best, Ruby and Gracie (and Neil).

Airedale fun day

We had our end-of-year Airedale fun day a few weeks ago. It was held at the Nuringingy Reserve - a nice private, bush area near Blacktown.
We met a new Dale - Finn. He's come all the way from America - that's him at the front. He was a very handsome fellow (That's Gracie and Teddy at the back).
His dad, Jon, took some great pictures on the day...many of them were of us!
Look how good we look.
Gracie and me.
Me.
Gracie.

But enough posing, it was time for the games to begin.
Here I am waiting for my turn at the obstacle course relay. Kay thought she had designed a really easy course that anyone could do...but not so.

From the Dales that slipped their collars and ran away when asked to go through the hula hoops, to Billy who couldn't leave the tennis balls in the bucket (he had to carry one back to the finish line), it was Airedale chaos!

Luckily we had three latecomers arrive just about the time we were filming, so we regrouped and ran the event again.

It went a bit better the second time around, although Legend remained adamant she wasn't doing the hula hoop second time or any time.

We had a fancy dress parade, but didn't manage to get any photos. It was a fun day out, not too hot and always great to see our Airedale friends.
