The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

Move over David Beckham


Now I'm sure all of you know how much the Brits like their football, & I am no exception. I love nothing more than a good old game of footie (that's soccer to you my North American friends).

I haven't been able to play as much as I would have liked recently as it has been so wet & rainy here (yes it is true what they say about it raining a lot here in England) & boring mum doesn't like me getting too muddy, even though I have no qualms about being as muddy as I possibly can - apart from the fact that a shower normally follows...yuck.

So I was pretty excited to see it was a lovely sunny day yesterday, and even more excited when mum got my football out of the car boot as we set off for a walk. I had wondered where she had hidden it. I was pretty excited, so ran off ahead to try & hurry her along a bit, as she can be so s-l-o-w sometimes. Look at my scary shadow in the picture above - I look huge!

First I honed some dribbling skills, working my way up the field past mum. Once I've got hold of the ball, it's pretty hard to get it off me again.

Next I had a go in goal, with mum kicking some shots at me. No way was that ball getting past me. As you can see, it's got tassles on the sides so it's easy to get a good hold of it...

...As demonstrated here when mum tried to take it off me when it was finally time to go home. But mum, it's miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnne!

Check out my sulky face now as I really didn't want to go home, but mum was moaning on about having to go back to work to earn pennies to keep me in the manner to which I've become accustomed. Fair enough I suppose, but I still had to register my displeasure. Can't let those humans think they've got the upper hand all the time, can we?

This is mum's first attempt at a video on the new camera. Thanks to the very lovely Sunshade for the help on getting it uploaded onto my blog - I would NEVER have managed it on my own - far to complicated for my little puppy brain. I think she needs to turn the quality up on her camera as it's a bit fuzzy, so we'll try again over the weekend.

Here's to the next World Cup!

WOW - Nice Skills Oscar!

Im not much good at soccer, but I think basketball might be my game, on the account of I know how to dribble pretty good :-)

I don't play with balls. You can't tug them!

My rents bought a digital video camera like 2 years ago and never used it! It's sure to be outdated by now!

MoonShadow: I love to play ball, but unfortunately we don't have a soccer (um..foot?) ball. I should make mom get me one. I haven't figgured out how to go to the store by myself yet. It looks like fun.

Bai-Jin ( That ball looks awfull big, but if I could I would grab it away from my doggy family and take off with it. Don't you know everything in this world was made for me, and I DON'T share.
