Garden day!


We here at the Reish Compound have started our garden.
My daddy, sisssy and brother are working hard at preparing the garden. As soon as it is ready it will be time to plant seeds and some kind of green things. This was an all day job, just happened on the day mawmie flooded the basement.
So you can see all the hard work that WE all did.
Picture 1.
Ally, Ty and daddy planting something yummy to eat I just know it!!!!

This is me with dad in the garden. We have 2 sides to it. I was making sure he was doing it right. Mom sent me in to supervise him. We wouldn't want any mistakes this early in the planting season.
We love our daddy.

Ok someone had the great idea that Pilar needed to come out with us and garden. Let's just didn't go so well. She never did understand that you need to walk down the aisles of the veggies and NOT run over them at full force. At one point she had all 4 hoomans chacing her and trying to catch her. She made a mess and some replanting had to be done. She was told to "sit...stay" but she ran ran ran as fast as she could to the front door!!! Until pup Ally went and let her in. That silly girl.

AAhhhhh now me! I took a much needed break after all the drama from Pilar. I was tuckered out from the running and gardening. I just don't get into the drama queen stuff. Sooo I decided to do a little "roaching" for a little while. Then I got up and found some birds and decided to play with them. Ok here is where it gets a little scary for some people. I took off after the birds. I know hard to believe isn't it. I chased them right into the corn field right behind our that is right behind our house. Yeppers they wouldn't find me, and I (big sigh) wouldn't come. My boy pup found me. I didn't get into tooo much trouble over it. Mawmie was just glad I was safe and with her. It has been a great Saturday for me. I am just hanging out with my family and it is great! Finally it is all about ME. Ok yes it usually is but it really is this weekend. People are asking my family lots of questions about me and where I came from. Not just bloggy friends but real world friends.
Well mawmie is in need of rest and I do hear the pillows calling me.....I think they need some protecting. I better get in the room and protect them before the other 4 pawed kids get in there and abused them. So long for now. Hope to hear from all my friends and how their weekends went.
This is Willow the Protector of Pillows checking out for now!!!!!

Look (ok a little blurry so squint your eyes)!!! This is my new collar from Beasely!!!! They are with my moms skull sketchers. They BOTH rock. Thank you x's a million Beasely and his mom. The pictures of us opening the package didn't turn out. :(( However, we felt the love that went into it.

Ok I admit it....I just don't like the camera or posing. That is why those ears go back, my hoomans really don't beat me with a wooden stick or nothing like that!! SERIOUSLY!!! They just use pillows!!!

Ok so here is the best picture of me and my SKULL collar!! Isn't it sooooooo cool. Mom says all we need now is a skull hat for me and a skull tattoo for her and we will be good to go. heehee. {Note: the hat will happen....the tattoo on the other hand....not gonna happen}

Now you are saying to yourselves "self what is Willow doing in that window?" "Is she coming IN or going OUT?" Well remember mawmies flood? Mawmie had to clean out the basement and disinfect the floors so she wouldn't let me IN!!! So I found my own way in. Yes through the basement window. Mawmie thought I was one of the hooman pups coming to help her and she was weally weally surprised to look up and see me 1/4 of the way through the window. Ty the boy pup had to help her push me back out. It would not have been a good drop.

It was just hard wiff her on one side of the wall and me on the other. So I showed her. I sat there with my head on the window and cried until she was done. She quit shortly after that. I guess my crying worked...who new????

Well all is better now in the basement. Mawmie still has lots of laundry to do and the pink collar is now hidden from the pup Ally. Life is getting back to the Airedale way of living. For all of those wondering about mawmies coffee pot.....still doesn't have a new carafe'!

This is Willow the cool Black Dale with the Orange Skull Bling!!!

Dad's in Trouble...AGAIN

Hi everyone! Well daddy didn't put the pictures on the computer last night! Baaaaadddd daddy mawmie says. She so wanted to show you all my new collar that Beasely got me. It matches her Skull shoes she has. It really rocks not to mention that we match now. She couldn't wait to get the pink collar off of me. Those of you who are collar freaks should really visit the web site. Of course mawmie can't find the silly site but if you want it just let mawmie or T-Bone Beasely's mom know and they will get it for you. This collar is PAWSOME!!! Just wait.
Now back from my cloud......ahhhhhh.
We have already had a busy morning with watering the garden, taking kids to school and having coffee. Pilar tried to escape again but don't worry, our girl got her. We all still think she is trying to run away from home. She tries to leave with grandma every time she comes to visit. That silly Cavalier she ain't going anywhere!!!!
So tatafornow or as Tigger would say TTFN!!!

Tuesday Morning Blahs!

Just a quick hello from everyone here at the Reish compound! Daddy kept us all busy planting a garden, moving bricks and landscaping. Mean while....mawmie kept us busy cleaning up her flood in the basement, house cleaning and planting flowers in her flower garden. Yes we were all busy and very very TIRED!!! My kids begged not to go to school today. They pleaded with mawmie to let them stay home. They said they needed an extra day. Mawmie, being the evil one that she is, laughed and said "get up and deal with it!" I on the other hand was ready for them to go to school. I just wish they would get going already so we could snuggle back to bed. We will give you a PM report once the pictures are in the silly computer.
This is Willow signing out from the Compound!!!

And then it went BAD!!

(My sissy is #2 on the court)
So I was like so excited that we had such an exciting day yesterday day that I forgot myself. I admit it really I do. I got to spend the day outdoors with my daddy. I got to garden, mow and dig a fire pit for our summer bon fires!!! Yes he let me help dig, even guided me where to dig. He said "Willow, this is the ONLY place you can dig!" I was diggin' with joy!

I took off while my dad wasn't looking. But not far so don't worry. I wanted my girl to come home of course so next door I want and peeked in their door. There she sat, we met eyes and we both new what I wanted!! Yep food! Now please don't think I am a slave to my tummy but it was a hard days work and all. Not to mention dinner time. So being the good sister she is, she took me home ( I love my hooman sissy)!!!

Ok here is where things go weally weally bad. Younger pawed ones may not want to read passed here. WARNING!!! WARNING!!! Plates for dinner were being made, even ours. Off to eat we(Pilar and I) went. Since everyone was so tired from a hard day of working it was a in front of the TV eating kind of night. Except for mommy who ate at the table. Yep you guessed it. Pilar talked me into counter surfin for the turkey that daddy made. make a long story short I got busted by mommy, ran fast to sissy, then caught by daddy, retrieved by mommy then plowed her down. She went one way with feet in the air while I went the other just trying to find a "safe" place, only to realize THERE WASN'T ONE!!! By this time daddy was in the air like superman and got me and put me in the batcave where I stayed the rest of the night! (Pilar got put in her mini batcave too) So here is to all of you who are more successful at counter surfin than I am. SEND ME YOUR SECRET!!! I will be leavin' the batcave soon. Fear not my friends life will return to normal....I hope. In the mean time enjoy these pictures. Nope no new camera just from the cell phone.

This is Willow the bad Surfer signin' out!

New Stuffies!!

WooooHoooo!!! I got new stuffies today!!! Mawmie even got Pilar a carrot stuffie. I guess it was so she would think she has food with her at all times. Let's hope it works!!! We also got this really cool tug-of-war ball stuffie. Yep that's right no camera....blah blah blah. Just close your eyes and pretend you are here...oh come on try it. Nah didn't work for me either.
So on to the next big thing. I got a new collar today. Seems I outgrew my red one. I was fine with it but mawmie said it had to go. So we shopped around today and found one. It wasn't "THE" one mawmie said but it will have to do. Ally picked it out and I personally like it. It is 2 shades of pink with polk-a-dots! Now I am not to sure what Ty and daddy are going to say, but I will win them over. Mom couldn't find the skull one and was willing to settle on the pink camo but Ally insisted on the pink dots! I should have both in my opinion. After all a girl dale can't have too many collars!!
Well we are off to read more Wheel Wednesday stories. They really make my mawmie laugh and boy does she need a good laugh! Keep those stories coming!!
Until next time.

Mothers Day! It weally did start out so innocent. Ty and I were the first ones up. We were soooo excited because we got mawmie new flavored coffee and we were gonna make it!!! We wanted to do it without ANY help. So into the kitchen we went (it would be better wiff pictures I know). Filled up the hugemongous coffee pot with wots and wots of water. Then we put the new coffee in, it smelled SO good too. We began to pour the water THEN it happened. We lost control of the pot, it came tumbling down and crashed on the floor(tile floor). Next all I heard was screaming and Ty holding on to me. We were scart!!! What were we going to do now???
Daddy came to rescue us! He aire lifted me outside and aire lifted Ty to the living room. Next came mawmie, she saw we were ok then started to laugh. LAUGH can you believe it???? We found nothing funny about this!!!! Finally sister showed up, the sleepy head. She came and checked on me. I was fine except for the laughing part that mawmie did.
So they took mawmie out for coffee, lunch then for more coffee at the book store. I stayed home and waited..... Finally then came home with what looked like fresh home made bread. Oh yes it was the "mother's day bread" and I had my eye on it. Yes...I ended my day in time out because I counter surfed and ate the mother's day bread. She wasn't laughing then. I just don't get it. Why does she laugh at some things but not at others? I thought for sure she would laugh at the counter surfing. Oh well. Big aire slaps to you all.

Cats Eye View!

Well she did it! She found a picture of me (Teak). Granted it is not the best but she put me on the blog. Does she have no shame??? Maiz I can understand. He loves this kind of stuff. But not me.....I am the "behind" the scenes kind of guy! I make sure all is well in our house. This is just not right. No doggy, kitty or hooman is supposed to see me. I am the sentry around here!!! What was she thinking!!! I think she forgot that I make the rules around here. Hmmm....I wonder if she is upset that I didn't stop Willow from digging that hole yesterday? But hey I was inside watching her bed making sure nobody got on it that shouldn't be there while I was on it. What is a cat to do?? I snuck a picture of Maiz on here too. He is the yellow guy. He LOVES the camera. Mom says he should have be the next "Morris" whoever that is. Fear not, I got back at mom for this so don't you worry. Yep......I tore up the doggies food bag with my claws. Ahhhhh a cats life, does it get any better than that. Be cool.

Scratching out,

Bath Time and No Way Out!!!

She did it!!!! She tricked me into a bath. I didn't even see it coming. I was loving on my mawmie this morning giving her all kinds of hugs and slurps. I have been sticking close to her and I mean REALLY close. She went into the bathroom and I followed like I always do and she closed the door. I new something was up right then because she never closes the door. I was trapped and I couldn't find a way out. Pilar tried to help me but no suck luck. She yipped, scrrratched and snorted at the door but still mawmie was not letting me out! The next part I blame grandma for.....SHE GROOMED ME!!! I guess I am no longer going to see Mr. Cliff. Mawmie came back from grandmas house where she learned how to give an "Aire" cut and got busy on me. She did an ok job .... biiiggg SIGH. This just isn't how I wanted to spend my Sunday. But in the end I got a peanut butter sandwich and got to go bye-bye. I guess the peanut butter alone may have been worth it. Shhhh don't tell my mawmie that.
I will catch up with you all later. I just wanted to give you a quick up date. Alas...still no camera. Mawmie wishes there was one because she wants to show off my airecut.

Can it be?

Well hi my aire pals and other 4 pawed friends! My family is kind of sad right now. There best hooman friends are moving to Australia on Wednesday. The moving van came today and mawmie is over helping them pack. Tears have been flowing for months in my house over this "move" to the other side of the globe. I just keep hearing "can it really be happening?" Yes it really is happening. The bonus side to this is I keep getting lots and lots of hugs and kisses and I slurp away the tears for them. I am kind of good at that.
I probably won't be around until after next Wednesday due to all the "drama" that will probably be pawing out. I sure hope daddy, Pilar and I make it through with all this crying. Wish us luck everyone. We will give you the move report ASAP.
