The Wrong Food!

I got a really cool treat today - instead of my normal crunchy food, I got this:

Kitty Crunchies!

So it was a cool treat, and I suppose that I should be excited that I got to eat the kitties crunchies without getting yelled at. But Pups, I have to tell you that it wasn't given to me as a treat. Mommy gave it to me because she had forgotten to buy my crunchies! That's right, she forgot that I was out of food and so she gave this to me instead.

I'm not sure how I feel about this - on the one paw, I'm so excited to have kitty crunchies in place of my normal crunchies. But on the other paw it means that Mommy wasn't paying attention to me or my needs!

So what do you think Pups, should I be mad at Mommy or not?

Home Early!

Both Mommy and Daddy came home from work early today - it was pawesome! We sat on the deck and then we all walked down to the river. We played ball (loved that) and keep-away (didn't love that as much). And I got to run around and sniff all the spots where all the other critters live.

It's been ages since we've all had time to walk together in the yard. Look how all the weeds have grown down my path to the river!

Oh, I found the smells of the fox or maybe the woodchuck - someone was here anyway!

I got to get right down on the bank. I almost got in, but Mommy and Daddy said no!

We played a bit of ball and I was such a good girl (I barely ran away at all). We even had time for some scritches under the willow tree.

It's been such a busy summer, so it was nice to take some time and hang out with the family!

Summer Fun

Mommy always says that Watermelon is the best part of summer. Mommy and Daddy eat it all summer long, Mommy makes sorbet with it and sometimes they grill it and have it for dinner with some grilled chicken - they love it that much.

One night when Mommy was cutting up a nice new melon I asked for some. She said she wasn't sure if I'd like it - and I said, "what are you crazy I'm an Airedale, of course I'll like it"!

So after she was all done cutting she took me out side, I'm still not sure why I had to go outside, but I didn't care if it meant that I got to try this stuff! Well she gave it to me and I took it and ran right down to my special spot (where I like to eat stuff), but then I was like - "what am I supposed to do with this"?!

Mommy said - "eat it silly", so I gave it another try and boy was it great!

So now I know that I really like Watermelon!

Violet for Violette

The other day PB&J took over the bloggie to tell you about the sad loss of little Violette Noelle. Well, sweet little Sprout is being laid to rest on Saturday and her Mommy has asked if everyone could ‘Wear Violet for Violette’. The kitties have turned their bloggie violet - Mommy can't figure out how to do that with my new design or I would too. On Saturday I'll be wearing my violet bandanna and the kitties will be wearing purple bows - all to support little Sprout's family.

If you can, please do the same. Sprout loved her kitty Monty and I'm sure she would have grown up to love all animals.

P.S. If any of you donated, you'll be pleased to know that we raised enough to send Violette's God Mother to the services as well as cover her hotel costs. Way to go every kitty, doggy and hammie!

Another One?!

My cool new friend Mistress Blue (she's a big fan of Airedales, so of course she's cool!) gave me this super award! Thank you so very much! But where can I go to spend it, does Petsmart take it?

And then she tagged me for a funny meme - you go to google and type in your name with the word 'needs'. So in my case I typed in "George Needs" and this is the top five:

George Needs Anchor Management (umm, we don't have an anchor)
George needs a separate forum section (I'd really rather not have any kind of separate section - I like where I am)
George Needs a Job (seriously, unless there's a "CEO of Rawhide chewing" that ain't gonna happen)
George Needs Your Help (I do - I always need help!)
George NEEDS ME! (Mommy loves this one :-)

Um, this is the hard part. I think I'll pass this on to Asta, Luc & Remy, Mr. T-Bone Beasley, Molly & Taffy and my BFF Renna (who had her ladygardenectomy the other day and is recovering)!

Sad News

Hi Woofies! It's Pearl, Bert and Jake here, we're sorry to take over Georgie's blog today, but our friend Monty's littlest bean has left us and flown away to heaven. We are absolutely heart broken for his family.

If you can, we need donations to send Little Violette's God Mother to the funeral - please visit the Cat Blogosphere and give if you can. Also, please take a moment to visit Monty's family and keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart,
and you shall see that in truth you are weeping
for that which has been your delight.
-Kahlil Gibran

An Award!

Look at what my friends Luc & Remy gave me! I'm so excited! Thank you guys sooooo much!

The Rules:
1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogger community, regardless of language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award-winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winners and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico"blog , so everyone will know the origin of this award.
5) To show these rules.

So here's the problem - I love all my friend's blogs, and I'd be hard pressed to pick just five, since you are all an inspiration to me - Asta is so popular, and Abby is so spunky, Mr. Samwise is so steady, and Willow is so fun! I do have to make sure to give it to my BFF Renna, since she's the pup that got me started, but I'd like to give it to all of my blogging friends, because you are all so pawesome.

I'm sorry I haven't been around much, Mommy's been very busy with work and summer stuff. I love summer, but I love it more when I get to see my Mommy and Daddy and visit with my friends!
