An Explanation of Upcoming Blogging Absence (and daycare terrier)

Friends, we will be absent from blog land for a little bit and I fear Momma will be marking as read all your lovely posts as she gets stressy about missing something important and her mentals rest easier when there is nothing in the queue.

Some stuff going on at the estate right now requiring her full attention and we could use your good thoughts.

I'm taking care of things, don't worry.

There were some queries regarding the Airedale at daycare.

Even though he is only three years old, he is very well behaved and the source of his good manners was revealed to me last week. As he started bouncing and yammering and getting just a wee bit annoying, a rather scruffy looking old dog wandered over. A dog before whom the rest of the pack parted as the red sea without her giving either a glance or a growl.

Upon seeing her, Mr. Airedale slunk to her side and proceeded to make supplicant puppy behaviors, eventually laying on the ground while she gently put her mouth around his fuzzy neck. This, apparently, was Mr. Airedale's elderly sister (an interesting cross that appears to be a mix of Irish Wolfhound, terrier, and possibly labradog).

She's got his number and is the new fun police monitor (a role that Momma and Master's dearly departed Raja used to have).

Dexter done!


  1. Maybe I should have my DOH use her human paw to MAAR here as well -

    Woo know, in a show of WOOnity!

    PeeEssWoo: If woo need a getaway place, Khamp Khyra is available
    PeePeeEssWoo: The Zen-terra will be treated to some Labradork furs today - it will nevFUR be the same fur sure!

  2. Crossing paws and slinging drool here... I wonder if Gg would find a fun police monitor comforting or scary?

  3. Dexter, Gail and I are not sending just good thoughts to all of you at the estate just now, we are sending the VERY BEST thoughts.

  7. You will be missed! Hope things work out with your peeps!

  8. We will Miss you and Momma, and hope the Master is behaving. Glad that daycare has the requisite number of terriers to take charge. Suggest that Momma consider becoming a Terrier if the master gets too cranky. (not literally becoming...just behaving like one.)

    Your friends

  21. Fenris is the fun police here. Sometimes he is a really party pooper, unless he is the one that starts the fun then he is a party animal. But heaven forbid we should try to have funs without him. ~Tuiren

    Mommy needs more coffee her spelling is atrocious.

  22. My son was my gateway to starting my blog. He started one when he first headed west after college. He suggested I try it and write about The Bostons. That evolved into a chronicle of our life from my perspective. Every time I say I'm going to stop certain family members become dejected that we will no longer have a record of these times. Besides I find it therapeutic . Mango was my first dog blog. Miss that guy. Ann TBL
