So the plan is...this: I wake her ever morning until I drive her crazy. I did get her to send out some cards....but darn her not all. Some more will be going out and I DID bite her just to let you all know. Ok so I have been nipping a little at everyone but hey if it gets them moving then it is ok.
1. Pilar has lost weight. I guess this a big deal. Pilar is just mad she isn't getting extra snacks.
2. My kids and daddy are home all the time now due to some break. I sure hope they don't get into trouble for breaking something.
3. My mom says she has been doing a lot of retail therapy since her friend got back from Australia and hopes dad doesn't notice.....to much.
4. It's been snowing.....a lot.
5. I LOVE THE SNOW!!! I get a rub down and blown dry after a good play date with my kids in the snow!!!
6. Nope the kitchen is not done but it is live able mom says.
7. I am getting Pilar's extra eatables. hahahahaha oh sorry that was rude.
Well that is all I have to report from the compound right now. Lots of licks to all of you. Try to stay warm if you are in the cold and dry if you are in the snow!
pee ess, Hello to all my new friends and followers. Thanks to all my friends for hanging with my mommy!

Hey everyone....do you recognize my pink hat? I put it there so my daddy could find the stuff to the kitchen. It must have done the trick because he found it! He worked real hard and got it done. I would like to think it was all because of ME.
I thought I would also lay on top of some of the kitchen parts just so he wouldn't forget them either. All of this was in the basement so I knew he would come looking for me sooner than later!! lol

We are still remodeling! At least the kitchen is usable and I can get to my snackables now. The only bad thing....or should I say good is the trash can is out in the open now!!!! Yeah you all know what that means! Ok so I have partaken in a little of this and a little of that. No big deal. Then I struck gold. This is how it went:
I was snooping around the kitchen when I saw laying...laying on top of the trash a stuffie. Nope it wasn't mine, however I did get concerned that there was a perfectly fine stuffie in the trash. So I took it out and laid it on the floor next to the can. A little later it was in there AGAIN!!! Silly hoomans. I had to take it out again, but this time I took it into the living room. Yep you guessed it my friends when I went to go get a drink guess what I saw THE STUFFIE IN THE TRASH AGAIN. So I hid it this time....in my toy box. The hoomans just kept asking each other "who is taking it out" and mom said "don't be dumb guys...it's Willow she thinks it is hers." Turned out it was my boys and now it is mine, safely hidden in my toy box. Now....I wonder if they will find the clippers... ha ha ha.
Giving moms lots of hugs and love,

In the picture below is Traci.....she is moms best friend who moved to Australia. She is having fun hangin' with the roo in Adelaide! We are on a count down right now. She will be home for Christmas with her kids and we can't wait. This should make mommy really really happy!!!! She misses her really really bad. I even tried giving my mom the pink pig to make her feel better....but it didn't.
Now for some good news. They fixed our favorite McDonalds! We are all so happy. We can now get our morning coffee and treat after dropping off the human kids.!!!! Now this makes mom smile!!! Now for the bad news....the kitchen is still broken and it is making mom very nervous. she said and I quote "I just want my house back...sob sob sob" Ok so half of it is done now we have to bust out the wall. We think we will send mommy to grandma's when that happens. Trust us.....it will be much easier on all of us if we do that!!! teehee
My mommy loves this picture. We don't know why but she does. So daddy is going to get it for her. He just wants her to stop crying and get out of bed I think so he will do any thing at this point. Our Friend Teresa said she will come back in the spring and try to get some better ones of me and my kids in the spring. Daddy wants color pictures. We are going to do a wall of just us in black and whites on our addition. Teresa got some really good pictures that my mommy can't live without. Mommy really liked Miss Teresa and when she finishes school she wants to spend time with her and her camera!!!
Please forgive our absence. We are going to try real hard to get back up and chatting and catching up. We still want to be a part of the Christmas card exchange. We love all of you and miss you all. Big smooches, Willow

No thanks to mommy that is. Can you believe she has been away for so long? Well I can't and it just isn't right. My house is still broken and she will add pictures of that on the weekend. She got a few of me in trying to help in Allyson's room but on got the boot. It would have gone faster had they let me paint!
Grandpa left. :(( He was a great buddy. Everyone here likes to sleep in but not him. We were both up early, drinking coffee and rocking on the porch swing. Ok ok he did get mad at me one day for drinking all his coffee. But hey he put in on the ground. What else was I supposed to do? I love the java!!! Ok he panicked a little too wondering how mommy would react being that I am the baby and all.
As most of you know we got our photo session pictures in. There may be more but these are the free ones we get to choose from. Two of them are on this page. Mom will slowly put the others on the site. Actually the one with mom and me isn't one she liked but dad insisted. :(( moms frown not mine.
We hope you are all doing well. I am just happy mommy didn't fly out to New Mexico to help with the baby dales like she was going to. But my sister is sick so she had to stay put! Maybe in a month! They are adorable.
signing out from the Compound for today....Willow

Here I am on what they call "The Great Pumpkin" and I am queen of the world!!! It may look little here but it did get big!!!
Poor Willow had to stay on the other side of the fence because the "folks" were not out there with us. But I am on a watermelon. Do you see her whispering in my ear? She was telling me to get it closer to the fence so she could grab it a run off with it for "us"! Some how I didn't think the "us" really meant ME.
This is the best part my friends!!! This is how we got to and from the garden!!! Yes this is where I got to ride so I could see the WORLD from our back yard! When daddy is home we use the big tractor but when it is just the kids this is "their" tractor. Aren't they inventive. They didn't harvest much that day because they were tooo busy showing me around.
Thanks for grooving with me today my friends. Next week we will go the broken McDonalds where mom is yet again having a fit about all the broken stuff around her. Boy does she need some chill pills.
BIG NOSE POKES....MALITTA
Tuesday, October 14, 2008
So mommy is going to dunk her and the house and clip her. Oh no wait....she can't find the clippers....tee hee....we think daddy threw them away on accident. hahahahahaha So I guess that means off to the groomers she goes. HAHAHAHAHAHA Wait.......does that mean I have to go to??? Mommy...........
I gonna go help find those clippers!!
Mommy here, just wanted to say thank you to everyone for coming by and checking on us! We are still so sad about Miz Greta. The puppies are doing fine and Pepper is being a great "mommy" to them. We appreciate each and everyone of you!
Thursday, October 9, 2008
This is a picture of Gretta with my kids. Taken at my uncle's house a few years ago.
Today we come to our blog with a very very heavy heart. Most of you are familiar with Apache's tribe.....most of you are familiar with Gretta. Gretta just had 12 beautiful puppies. After the puppies were born she became ill. Oh everything was done to save Miz Gretta....but she passed over to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Leaving behind 12 babies, one devastated mommy, a blown away sister and a house full of sad Dales.
I know my Aunt Gretta is being greeted by my Sadie, Asta Miles, Marcie Girl and so many others that went before her in our family. But this still hurts the same. You will be missed Miz Gretta Gucci....may you rest in peace our sweet one!
We love you,
Willow, Pilar,Teak,Maiz,the Lizards and our hoomans whose eyes are leaking without stop!
Tuesday, October 7, 2008
So now for my debut.....you can go to Teresa's blog and see more pictures of me. Mommy says I am even smiling in one. In one of the pictures I actually stole the blahball from my boy and took off. Nah he never caught me!!!
So here it is http://olliephotography.blogsome.com/2008/10/06/willow/ I hope you all like them. If you can't make it there let mom know.
Mom says she promises to catch up with everyone! So sorry she is being neglectful. Bad mom.

Do you all see her teasing me? She wants me to look at her and pose!!! How dare she do this to me? First the neglect....then the pillow....then this stupid pad thingy and now she is teasing me with this bone. Enough already. Daddy..........
Aaahhhhh now this is more like it. This is really my bed. This is their couch but one of my favorite beds. Notice that I have a big comfy pillow to lay on.....not to mention how comfy that couch is!!!!!! hahahaha My other favorite beds are.......well their beds!!!!! Making my point brings me sooooo much happiness. Have a good day friends.

He does do a good job going in and out of those trees. He really makes sure that he doesn't kill any of my toys or balls. Yep that is what he is looking for!! Goooood daddy!!!
Here I am jumping through the air with glee because he just mowed my favorite spot!!!! Thanks daddy. You are the greatest!!!
This......do you see all that grass.....passed the rocks and deck? This is "their" yard that we all share. Yep I get to run in that too. But only when supervised.....no fence. Pilar can NEVER be left on her own out there. She runs away.....shhhhh that is a secret..
Well here I am just checking to make sure that daddy did his job right. So far it looks like he did. If he missed something than it means sister will have to fix it tomorrow. (Mommy is allergic to grass so she doesn't mow)
Well this is Willow signing out for tonight. We at the Compound hope you all had a good weekend. Chat with you soon.....we hope.....we are moving on to MANIC MONDAY!!!!

This is one of those "Y" dogs my daddy was talking about. He loves these kinds of doggies. They are beautiful mommy says. However they are not as beautiful as baby Willow....that came right from my mommy.....promise she said that. Oh wait I am getting off track here.....back to the subject at hand.
"I think we are ALL forgetting who takes care of these kids here!" Then my sister said "what the crap.....are you kidding me.....not an Airedale....noway!!" My boy said "I am out of here dad you are on your own with this one. But let it be known I want a Red." Friends......HE HAD THE NERVE TO SAY THAT WITH ME IN HIS LAP!!! Where is the loyalty, where is the love.....I am not feeling it are you????
I know you all recognize this picture from above. This is loyalty.....this is love.....this is......ME......Willow.......the Black Airedale who kills stuffies and pillows when ignored. Me Willow who chases birds, butterflies and woodchucks. Me Willow.....the one you trip over in the middle of the night because you can't see me because I am so dark. Me.....Willow.....DADDY.....who loves and adores you. *Sigh......wimper......sigh* Mommy told me not to worry. But friends do you see my plight. I give love, smooches, hugs, warmth and loyalty. And HE wants to bring in one of those "Y" doggies. I was just getting used to the idea of another Dale. One that is just like me. Mommy doesn't like change....no seriously she doesn't. She is a creature of habit.
And the big secret is....Black Airedales are a little calmer than Black/Tan Airedales and the REDS are even calmer. So Ty and mommy want a RED Dale next. Stay tuned for the puppy saga of 2008. This just may go into 2009. That daddy can be stubborn but mommy can be even more stubborn. Teehee. I heard that it took them almost a year just to pick out a couch!!! Grandma thinks my pawrents are a little kooky. My kids and I would have to agree with her.
This is Willow the BLACK dale signing out asking you all to keep those paws crossed that I get a RED dale sister!!!!
Monday, September 8, 2008
First this NCIS stuff then she messes up our bloggy. Enough already. The house will come down, stuffies will be destroyed and food bowls will be tossed until this ends!!!!
Hmmmm what's next????
This is Willow signing out out for today. Keep your paws crossed I don't get locked up for bad behavior!!!

Pilar and I got to go bye-bye this morning for the school run. We went and got gas and that is where it began. Mom says it is never boring with me around. Talk about the drama, she just doesn't get me. It wasn't my fault I promise:
See Ty was eating a yummy pop-tart. He wasn't sharing and I had to get in his personal space to get some. In doing so I spilled Ally's drink from the day before all over Ty and his seat. (Poor Ally is gonna get it for leaving it in the car) So MOM being the hero that she is (you like that mom is this helping my cause?) jumped in the car and started cleaning Ty and the mess. It is not my fault Ty didn't want to go home and change, besides he wasn't that wet. Next we are in the drop-off line at the school. Mom's friend tells her that her gas cap is off!!! NOOOOO she is horrified. So the line isn't moving yet and she jumps out to close it (she almost went in her pj's....teehee) and OUT I jump then Pilar. hahahahaha Nope I wouldn't come back and Pilar followed. Moms friends were rolling down their windows harassing her. Now for MY bad news. Mommy said to me "Willow it looks like you and I have to go to school. You just don't mind me when we are out and we need some training." OH NO!!! Beasely help!!!
I hope the school year goes better than our 2nd day. Mom says between blahball and the morning drop-off I am 0 for 2. I don't know what that means but I think it is bad. All I know is that I didn't get a treat when I got home. Now that was bad!!!! We sure hope everyone is doing good. We can't wait to read up on what everyone has been doing while we were gone. A week really is a long time to be away from friends. Now we have to run and catch up with all of you. See you soon.
This is Willow signing out from the Compound warning all of you NOT to jump out of cars unless told to do so!!!!
Thursday, August 28, 2008
Ok so I have been thinking. Things have been crazy around my house. It is August. Does anyone know what that means? AUGUST = CRAZY HOOMANS!!! Yes doctors appointments, dentists, eye doctors, hair cuts, new shoes coming into the house (tasty), the clothes....oh the clothes!!! Let's not forget about the crazy hours they keep. What is going ON??? Just when I think it is time to play they are off running to that "blahBALL"!
I finally heard my mom say to my boy and girl "you better get used to getting up.....school starts next week!" Holy CRAP.....SCHOOL....next week! Why didn't anyone tell me!!! Finally after months of sharing mommy we finally get her all to ourselves! Woohoo! Let the lovin' begin. Those of you with pups at your house know what I am talking about!!
This is some major bonding/snuggling time with my guys! This is what I am talking about. This is my life, just the way I like it. Just another week and my life will be back to this. Whatever normal is.....do you think my mom will relax then? Nah I didn't think so either.
Well I am out of here. Off to dream of better days gone by when the loving was non-stop. Smooches to you all. Forgive us if we haven't made it to your blog. Also forgive us if we don't blog until Tuesday. We love you all.
Saturday, August 23, 2008
So much to report about that my Dale mind just doesn't even know where to begin. Mommy always says it is best to start at the beginning......so I guess I could give it a try......each drama/tail will be in a different color of course!!!
HHHmmmm Where to begin...................................
Oh my friends I never did tell you all about "Blahball" practise the other night. Mommy braved it and took me!! Woohoo. Do I hear all my pals on DWB cheering me on!!! It started out so wonderful. I was a good girl.....sat by my mommy......chewed my hoof.....drank my water.......enjoyed my pats........slurped my boy. Yes it was good. Until.....3 little boys came running by....FAST. Now I am a shy girl when we are out. I didn't realize that mommy had to go talk to some crazy man (the coach) about Ty. When I looked up she was G-O-N-E!!! The panic set in and I took off. Just forget the fact that I was sitting with people that were pawsome and they loved me. NO I wanted mommy. I took off like a crazy doggy with a lime green chair attached to me and ran across the field looking for my mommy. Took that crazy woman 2 times of me going around in circles........men chasing me and even my pup Ty getting me before she said "dear LORD ppplllleeeeaasssee tell me that isn't WILLOW!!!!" A smartty pants kid said to her this is God and yes that is your dog running crazy out there.....get her NOW!!! I am now banned from Blahball unless daddy takes me. BooHissss
I must move on to the next subject. I want to know and be honest with me. Do I look like a Poodle? Seriously. I love poodles of all sizes! The 4Lads are some of my favorite guys. But I don't think I look the the Poodles that live in that gang. I know you are asking yourselves why am I bringing this up. WELL........I GOT CALLED A POODLE AGAIN!!!! sigh....sigh... No offence to poodles. But really, I am an Airedale. Just I happen to be Black. sob sob
It is Friday night. I hear some of our DWB guys are going to Vegas. Some are going on dates. Some are going to games. Some are protecting the borders of the world and our Wheelies! Even some of our Paw friends are home right now helping heal broken hearts. Kuddos!!!
Now I do believe it is time for us ladies to get our wheelies and have a Tea Party! Oh yes I mean hats, gloves, costumes (optional), mommas and of course TEA. What do you think?
Well everyone these darn thoughts just won't stop coming. Mommy says I should just go get in bed with daddy and sleep these thoughts away. She said I could be back to normal in the morning. NORMAL.....is there such a thing?
Well this is mellow Willow signing out from the compound today. Keep your head held hi and let your eyes sparkle to all.

Now I know my mommy Apache is tough but come on this can't happen any longer. MELITTA and I are calling for a release of Paco. WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! We ask that you would all visit Apaches Tribe blog and demand PACO'S release!!! Now I warn all of you my mommy Apache can be VERY stubborn so she may need some convincing. However, I am sure we can all convince her it is the best thing for Paco. Here is the blog address. Beasely's mommy still hasn't been able to help my mommy with the short cut thing so sorry about the long-cut http://apachestribe.blogspot.com/.
I am going to thank all of you in advance for you help in the release of Paco. Penny, Poppy & Patchs are awaiting his arrival to help get him better. They are great nurses but can't put their skills to work until poor poor Paco gets there!!!!
This is Willow signing out from the compound today, warning all of you Wheelies to "watch" your wheels. Big Nose-Pokes

Ok you all asked for a picture of Pilar naked. I also noticed that it was a few of our boy doggie friends that enquired about this the most. I thought I would consult mommy on this matter but I thought better of it and decided to do the deed anyway.. hahahahahahha.
This is a picture of us after we got our gift from Faya. We are trying on our bandannas. Pilar is so hairy that hers barley fits. Notice those ears. They are terrible!!!
She is very fluffy and hairy here. Just look at those paws! Yuck!!!
She is pouting in this picture and won't hold her head up for us at all. Sheeesh what a baby. I get this done all the time and I don't act like this. If you look closely you can see all the hair is gone. She has been scalped.
She has had enough of me, Willow, following her around with dads picture cell phone. She is trying to hide from me in the crate. I am following her EVERYWHERE!!! hahahahaha (now this is fun)
We keep trying to tell her that it is for her own good. She is NOT buying it. Oh well....
**************************************************************************** For those of you wondering what these bottles below are I will tell you. But please take a good look at them. We seem to have a problem around our group with fartin' paws! Now I don't have a problem with that. It (the fart) has saved me many a time. And.....when I don't have one available my boy Ty usually provides one for me on an emergency.
So my good pals Mr. T-Bone Beasely and Deetzy started bottling up their farts for REAL emergencies. We help each other out during those emergencies and send our "fart" bottles to one another so we can escape our pawrents to safety.
REASONS FOR FART BOTTLES:
- Just farting way to much and you get kicked out of your comfy home and you need a place to crash.
- You get into some trouble and are put out for the night in the (Oh My Dawg...)the dawg house.
- Unlock a gate and go play at someone else's house for the day and scare the folks. (this could call for a 3 fart bottle emergency for some of us)
- You eat your moms bible, favorite pair of shoes, Wheely, kitchen table or the wall. (we will all send you fart bottles ASAP to get you out of your house for every ones safety!!)
- Your pawrents take a vacation without you. You are lonely and need a friend. We will take care of you.
- We understand that fart bottles will be needed for many things and the list will grow and grow.
Stay strong my friends. I will be passing these around to our friends. Let me know when you need them. We will send them for you. Right now our friend Howie needs them down in Texas. He is in Solitary Confinement for.....being to "farty" yep you read it right. So mine are all loaded and ready to go to Howie. Good luck with this and may the "Farts" be with us!!
This is Willow farting out at the Compound tonight. Letting you all know that there is never anything wrong with farting. Yes even if you are a girl. We girls have to fart tooo. My mommy would like me to call it "fluffing" but since my boy friends call it farting I said " no way , not gonna happen I need to hang with the boys mom!!!" so any other girls with me!!!!!?????

Back of Fart Bottle
We did have a good weekend, she made it up to me. We pulled weeds, plucked stuff from that garden that I am no longer allowed in. (Ok so I ate a few things, what's the big deal?) I ran circles around everyone. But still not one person played ball with me. What is up with that??? I tried to entice Pilar to a game of ball but she stuck her nose in the air and went for a run. However she went running in the wrong direction, AGAIN, so she had to go back in the house. teehee Will she ever learn??? I as usual was wonderful (mom here....Willow so not true you don't always behave). Ahhh mom this is my blog I say things as I see it!!! Anyway, we had a great weekend playing outside even though it didn't involve playing with balls.
Today is a new day and I am hopeful that my day will end with balls in it. We are getting ready to take Ty to "blahBALL" practise. Wish me luck that I actually get to go. I will report tomorrow on my luck or lack of luck.
This is Willow signing out from the Compound. Warning all of you to not trust those hoomans when they say you get to go bye-bye.
P.S. My mommy gave Pilar a hair cut yesterday. She is now naked. I didn't realize that Cavaliers were supposed to be naked?? Anyway, Jackson do we need to send you the hair for your naked spot???

Today we are all remembering Violette, Monty's baby girl who died this week from a fall. Today is her funeral and her family is so very sad. You will see that a lot of us are using the color violet in remembrance of this precious little girl.
We are sending all kinds of prayers her family's way.
This is Willow, signing out from the Compound today with a heavy heart.

Hello my friends both 2 pawed and 4 pawed. We just couldn't have done it without all of you. Everyone was so great while my hooman family went away.....FAR away out west to see my 4 pawed mommy. Not to mention they all cheated on me with all those doggies. *Oh Willow this is not how we write a thank you post. I think you can take your complaint up with me after we post ok love!*
So sorry about that my friends, we are just glad they are home safe and sound. Not to mention they did bring gifts! Woohoo. Of course G-ma sent the gifts so she is the best. I am still mad at momma Apache for trying to still my kids. *WILLOW that is not what we are writing about.....focus, ya know like a camera. ya know like the one we don't have yet* Sorry mom I will get back on track here. So a big thanks especially goes out to the 3Pgirls, M&M siblings, Eduardo,Clover, Deetz, Griffendales, and Beasely. If I forgot your name in here just bite my human she is just going so slow. Yep she forgot someone I just know it. For good measure everyone I am just going to bite her, it's settled.
We love you all,
Willow and Pilar
Warning read below this line at your own risk!!!!
Ok so we were not that good while mommy was gone. Yep we did some reaalllly bad things. So I thought I would share a few of them with you all. I am looking for some support . I just hope Pilar and I are not the ONLY pups in the world who do these things. So here it goes:
- We opened our crates a few times and escaped. Truth is I,Willow, opened the crates and we ran amuck throughout the house for the day. Pilar made her usual kind of mess but I went and snuggled down in the pawrents bed..
- I kept sneaking out of our back gate. It seems I have a talent for reaching over the gate and opening the latch. I am a fast learner what can I say. Yep trouble was a brewin'
- I wouldn't listen to dad about a.......skunk....it was scawry. I thought all living cweatures awe our fwiends. Boy was I wrong. Not only did I smell bad but it broke my heart.
- Burrs!! Yep I have managed to really make my hoomans mad about those silly things. I was just chasing some silly little critter into a hole. I guess I have had them for a couple of weeks dad said. But he did try to get them out. (not a happy mommy) I was promptly told to stay away from that nasty beast. SIGH
- I am ashamed to say but...I did a little counter surfing when they were gone.
- Pilar just kept pee peeing everywhere. She thought our green carpet was the grass. Boy is mommy mad!!!
So we thought we would make up for our badness and help mom out with the bloggin. We know she has to catch up with so many of our friends. So we got busy, put on the proper secretary outfits and got busy. We hope we got all of you. Mom says she thinks we missed a few so it looks like we are back at the keyboard tomorrow. As you can see in the pictures, Pilar is a much better typist than I am. I am a much better dictator. teehee
Can you believe how hard we are working?? We think it is time for a cookie break.
This is a picture of me and daddy. No matter how much trouble I got into during the day he was always there to make it better for me when he got home. I have the bestest daddy in the whole world. Can you see how much he loves me? We did this a lot while mommy was gone. Woohoo for me!!!! Well this is Willow signing out for today. It is time for us to snuggle down for the night. Who know maybe mom might get some sleep!!! Tail wags to you all. Big smooches.
