About Me

My photo
I am a very enthusiastic Airedale Terrier, born in Ohio, and living with the two coolest people, my Mom and Dad. They adopted me in December last year, and I really like living with them. I have a feline brother named Winston, and a new K9 brother - a Lakeland Terrier. Yippee!!

Well, it's time to try this again....


Linus and I have been out of sorts for a while...we have had some real family issues with our Dad's dad being in and out of hospital, and him losing his lady friend. She past over that human rainbow bridge a couple of months ago. Grandpa Ed also had surgery for a "subdural hematoma" - and had to stay in hospital again, then rehab, but he is doing much better now.
My dad is still looking for work. He says he hates being retired. He also says he is NOT OLD ENOUGH (his emphasis, not mine)to be retired. The good thing? He is home to play with us and walk us a lot more.
Here are some pictures of us at the dog park.

Running...I Love to Run

Give it up, Pup!! NOBODY outruns an AIREDALE!!!

That's Linus - Be Patient with Him - he is still just learning!


Linus, you take him from the left, I got the right...Ready...Set...

Well, Every Buddy, Linus and I send you all Airedale and Lakey hugs and slurpies, and wish you all a really Happy Turkey, uhhh, alright dad, Thanksgiving Day.

Take care, and blessings on you all.

Its been WAY too long!!! But we're b-a-a-c-c-c-k-k-k!!!

Hello to all my airedale friends, and all you other cool doggies too, and ok, the the human friends out there. We have a new friend who also is a Dog/w/Blog person, SaintLover (http://www.itsthedogslife.com) and she has sent us some really great pictures of Penelope, Linus, and her BFFs too - I will post them later in this post.

Sorry it's been so long since I posted last, and I do apologize, but there have been some personal issues in my human parents household. My human grandfather - that's him in the picture below, had a stroke in March of this year and spent nearly two months in hospital and rehab. He still can't drive and my human parents have spent a lot of time helping Pops and his girlfriend (that's her, Faye, next to Pops in the picture - she is sick too) with errands and things.

Linus still has tummy issues - the Doctor says he has "soft-serve" problems. Nobody seems to be able to figure it out. This pix is Linus about a month ago. Ain't he growing up?? We love to play together, take walks together, and FINALLY, my human dad took us to the Doggie Park - Oh MAN! what fun!!!

At the Doggie Park, up on Hoover Reservoir, we can run for all we are worth, meet and play with other dogs - haven't met any other airedales, wonder where they are all at? - and swim. Here are some pictures, taken by our new friend, SaintLover of us at the doggie park. Today, if we go, dad says he will take his camera, and maybe get some more pictures of us. I hope so, cause I think I am SOOOOOO photogenic!! Oh, and Linus is cute too.

Linus and Penelope at the Dog Park - playing in the doggie swimming area!

That's me and Linus - what's he up to?

Running in the water - wonder why I waited so long to find out about THIS?!?!

Running FREE! No lead, no walker, no tugging to keep me in check - AHHHH!! THIS IS WHAT I WAS MEANT TO DO!!! JUST RUN!!!!!!

Linus - being Linus - nuff said!

Hey look! I can SWIM!! I think I will try out for the doggie olympics as a dog-paddler - free-style!

Well, enough for today - I will be back this week with more pictures! And more new friends.

Hi everybody!!

Hey to all my dale Sisters and Brothers out there, and to all you sisters and brothers of lesser, less regal breeds, like this nuisance, Linus, a Lakey! Man, if mom and dad had told me what a poot-head he was going to be, I would have refused to go to Virginia to get him. Always in my face, always chewing on me, always picking out the best toys.

But all in all, when he ain't in the room, I am miserable. He is gettin' cuter every day, but not nearly as cute as me.

My sister Megan came by today and met Linus for the first time -- I wish Mom and Dad had taken some pictures...she thinks he is really cute too. Golly, this is getting tiresome.

Well, that's enough for tonight - Dad is getting our dinner ready - and I saw him order Pizza just a minute ago, so I know there are tasties coming.

More later....Airehugs and Airekisses - Penelope

PS - Linus still has the runnin' trotts! Wish he would pull himself together.

My liddle brothers got somekind of "bug"

Linus is sick. What goes in solid comes out...uhhh, less than solid

Does anybody have any advice? Mom and Dad took him to vettie, but so far, no real...uhhh results...gosh its hard to be lady-like talking about this particular issue...they have tried feeding him pumpkin - he said he was not a vegenarian or something like that...same with boiled rice....but I liked it!
Now, they are feeding us both some stuff out of a tin...where's my chicken, and lamb, and beef, and...oh shoot, now I am hungry! Gotta run - Dad is on his way home to give us somethin' to eat and take us for our midday walk.
If you can help Linus or you have some suggestions, email me at PenelopeAiredale@gmail.com

Hey! Dad! Comunhelp me....Pznopoly - leve me loine - hes comun!
OK, little buddy, what do you want me to say for you?

Linus, the Lion-Hearted Lakey says a Great Big OOWWWHHHHHHEEELLLOOO!!! to all the Terriers, pooches, pups, kittens, hamsters and ferrets that read Penelope's blog.

He says, he is very happy to be a part of this kind-a-nutsie family with the two human people he calls Mum and Dad, his new biggie-sister Penelope and Winston, the funny smelling dog upstairs (Dad here: we have tried and tried to tell Linus that Winston is a cat, but he has not met any cats before and just thinks Winston is a really stuck up dog, that smells funny, is allowed to poo in the house, and has a bad-temper - oh well).

This is me, playing with Penelope's new toy!
I got it, and she don't!!

Oh Poo!! Now she knows I have it...I know what this means...

A Life or Death struggle for Control of the Pink Thing!!

Oh yeah? Well, you ain't so big and tuff that I can't say...
Smell THIS!!

The TRIP was a HOOT!!

Dad said, we were leaving at the butt-crack of dawn...wonder when that is? I am ready!!

Can I get a steak sandwich? Could you make the steak raw? Thanks!!

You get to West Virginia from Ohio over a l-o-n-n-n-g bridge.
I have never been to West Virginia before! Yip!pee!!!

Hmmm, Ravenswood, where Character Counts! They really oughto love me here, cause I am a real character!!

Virginia! Yip!pee! Does this mean we are there yet, Dad? ... Mom?
Hey! Where's Linus if this is Virginia??

Dad said, this is a satellite view of HollyBriar Farm, the kennel where Linus was born
He said you had to use a satellite, cause this place was HARD to find - well, he used some other words too, but I didn't listen to them!

That's him? My new brother? LINUSSSSS!!! Hey! You're cute!

We get to touch noses, finally! Dad got lost, of course, after leaving Briar Hill Farms, and we got a real tour of tidewater Virginia. And finally, Mom convinced him to ask directions, and we got back on track, and found Williamsburg and our hotel

He's got such a cute face!

Why is it, when I look at this picture, I see a lot of trouble ahead...for me?

I am JUST as cute as he is...hunh? Well, hunh?

Uhh! Ya'll do remember, I am here too?!

Time for a rest - it's been a long, long day!

He's Home! He's Cute! and I am JEALOUS!!

Pix of Linus probably tomorrow. Didn't get on the 'pooter till late last night, but Linus is home now. And he's soooooo cute and snuggly! and mom and dad like him, but they spend too much time cuddlin' him, and I think I am getting somewhat jealous, but that's ok, cause dad still gives me the greatest butt scratches, and ear scratches, and great snakies too.
So ya'll watch for Linus and me pixs tomorrow, and to all my friends CYA then!
Airehugs and Airesmootchies and Airelove.
