First Walk, Airedale Art and an Award

Hi everybody!

Nelly is coming on some of my afternoon walks now! We have had a little problem with carsickness with her but Mum found her an homeopathic remedy to treat it and … there is no stopping my little sister now!


Here we are on our way to the Lakes.

It’s a lovely gently sloping ‘beach’ where you can run and run … We played and played. We had a brilliant time.

And when we got back home it was time for a cuppa …


These are Mum’s pride and joy. Santa (Mike and Kate) got her the one on the right and because she loves them so much she got the one on the left as well. They are from Ragtail Airedales.


Mum just loves Annie Curran’s work.

We have some exciting news. Our friend Brenda’s boy – Martin – is a builder and has started to build some garden walls and pillars to hang some gates on! We had to prepare the garden and move some storage boxes which had a lot of dad’s manuals  in. I had the important job of guarding them while they were in transit.


… and Nelly was helping in the kitchen whilst Mum prepared sustainance for the troops.   Nelly is always there when Mum cooks – usually nailing her feet down to the floor by lying on top of them. It was meat loaf the other day … she was sooo attentive …


Anyway, Martin is coming on Monday to start building – weather permitting! 😀

A little while back our good friend Ludo the cool dude gave us this award

    Hello Finni

    We cannot believe how much Nelly has grown! It is lovely to see her out and about with you enjoying the countryside, good to read she does not suffer with car sickness anymore.

    Keep up the good work organising the troops!

    Hiya Finni & Nelly,
    Those videos are great. Looks like Nelly is really comfortable off lead.
    I’m going to ask D to order some cups like yours. They are terrific.

    You’re such a good big brother showing Nelly the ropes of running around the lake. She is growing like a big bootiful weed. Glad your mama found something to help her with the car sickness.

    We had only just heard about Ann Curran’s art recently through Maggie & Mitch. Those mugs are gorgeous and show just how crazy wild we Dales can be.

    Give your Nelly a goob smooch from us to help her grow.

    Goober love,

    Wow – Nelly has grown a lot! We have a double car cage just like yours. We see you have the larger compartment Finni – what are you going to do when Nelly gets bigger?! Your walks look like fun – it is great having another Dale to play with isn’t it? We have a mug like that too – ours is the seaside one, our mum just loves it. That bench looks as though it is about to collapse with all that weight (not you, Finni, of course!!) Lots of love from Molly and Gertrude
