barefoot and pregnant

You know how everyone had been commenting about puppies and all? I did wonder where these puppies were supposed to be coming from. Now I know.... it's me!

I've just had my tummy shaved and a gooey ultrasound done. I'm pregnant for sure, it seems. Puppies are due in around two and a half weeks!

This is a big surprise for me, as I didn't have a clue.

Kay has put me on a super diet - all raw chickens, bones and vegies. It's great - I absolutely love chicken.

I've had to slow down a lot on my agility work and Neil says I can't chase balls and frisbees anymore.

But I did get to be a demo dog at obedience class today. That was really good - you get a lot of treats doing that. "Show the class how clicker training works Ruby"... click, treat, click, treat, munch, munch....yes, ma'am.

Well, it's back to bed for me now, it's all just eat and sleep pretty much these days. Now I know why.

morning sickness

Things have been rather quiet around here lately. It is winter and it's cold and all I feel like doing is staying in my warm little bed most of the time.

Even though Kay has been making me all sorts of delicious meals with chicken necks and cottage cheese - stuff that I would usually love... I don't feel like eating much either.

Kay says it's probably morning sickness, but she's wrong because it's more like all day - not just in the morning. Oh dear... at least it's not swine flu.

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.
