August 14th 2005

Biting, anything and everything, but especially people and their big evil hands

Wearing a harness in the car, substandard treats

Favorite Toy:
Pig ears, the evil Hurl-a-Squirrel, anything mom has in her hands at any given time

Favorite Food:
That's a simple one - Cat food!

Favorite Walk:
In the park behind our house - the one with the horses!

Best Tricks:
Tilting his head to one side to make everyone forget that he just did something bad, and he does a mean ice-cube dance

Arrival Story:
Bogart Handsome Devil (that's his real AKC name) joined our family, adding to the stable of 4 opinionated felines (who have already begun the puppy training via evil paw process). He arrived in a crate, on a plane, after travelling from his breeder in Virginia all the way to Los Angeles. It seems like he grows an inch and a pound a day.

The funniest thing about Bogart is that no one knows exactly what kind of dog he is - he's a purebred Airedale Terrier - even my vet had to ask (just not a lot of 'dales in Los Angeles, I guess). But he's a charmer... he gets us doggie freebies all over town. He has more personality than most people I've met, loves other dogs but really loves cats. Especially the strays that we feed, and one in particular, Scruffy who is an ancient tom tabby who Bogart will catch, hold down, and force him to accept a daily ear-and-head-licking. Now he has his own daily blog and message board!

Bogart and I have been working non-stop to develop his new website -
he felt that his last blog, while nice, was lacking a certain "something".

It is located here:

The blog is there, and I've added a Message Board as well (accessible
from the top right on the sidebar, just above the Calendar - TAKE ME
to the Airedale Boards!). It's going to be an ongoing project, but we
wanted to invite everyone to visit, post, suggest links, and have fun!!!

Scent of an Airedale

Today it was decided that I was getting - ahem! - a bit "funky".

All the time that I've devoted to rolling in mud and running through grass has paid off in a way I hadn't expected... I was going to get my first real shower.

Mom and Dad went out and bought special shampoo for me (supposedly, my skin is a bit dry, whatever that means) and then I listened in while they discussed the best place for this grand procedure.

It was decided that I'd hop into the stand-up shower with Dad, and we'd take a shower together. Mom must have been in on it because she stood outside the door taking pictures of me through the glass and laughing at my plight. Dad soaped me up with the shampoo (ok, it does smell kind of nice) and the shower rinsed it away. It was fun because Dad was making it into a game for me, but still, it was all about a lot of water falling on me and lets say that while I didn't absolutely hate the experience, I'm hoping I don't have to do it again.


But that's not going to stop me rolling in stuff.

Dad dried me off with a big, fluffy towel (which is apparently now "my" towel - whee!) and then mom tried to dry me off with this blowy thing that blew warm air at me. I thought this was hilarious and proceeded to run all around the room, taunting her, barking at the blowy thing, and basically drying myself off in the process.

Humans. They're so simple.



The Mustard Seed Cafe

Wow, today I had THE coolest experience so far of my time in Los Angeles...

Mom found an Airedale Yahoo Group and signed up, and she mentioned that I have my own blog. Well so many nice people sent me email that they had looked at it, thought I was adorable (yes, praise works really, really well for me) and loved the blog! One very nice lady, Michelle, sent us a note that she lives nearby and that her niece works at a local cafe called the Mustard Seed Cafe in Silverlake and that we should visit sometime.

Well mom told dad the story. Usually I go with mom to work but today I got to spend the day with dad, which is always fun because it means that he'll make me run really fast and I always somehow work in getting really, really dirty and muddy. After our morning run, dad thought it might be interesting to go over to the Mustard Seed Cafe because he was hungry, and it seemed like they would be dog-friendly if we sat outside. Fine with me! So we went and met the really nice waitress who was so excited to see me (I'm soooooo getting used to people loving me at first sight) that she called her aunt to say that there was an Airedale there. And of course, her aunt was the nice lady that sent us the email about going to the Cafe in the first place....

So we'll be going there a lot in the future, I'm sure. Thanks Michele & Tanner (and thanks for the picture on my other blog)!
