The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

Freedom!

Ding dong the lampshade is dead! It feels so good to be free again, and I have been really good so far & not licked my stitches or anything. In all honesty I don't really want to look down there to see the full horror anyway.

I thought that as the stoopid collar was off, I might be back to getting a decent walk, but mum says I still have to have 5 minute walks on the lead until the end of the week. Grrr. This is how exciting my walk is at the moment. Not. I'm not even supposed to run, but it's sooooo hard not too as I feel so cooped up being so restricted. I normally have getting on for 2 hours of walks a day so I'm going stir crazy! Excuse the "watering", but a guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do.



When we got back from the "walk" (not sure it can be justifiably called a walk), mum wanted me to pose for some photos in the (rare) bit of sunshine. Yeah, right mum. If you took me on a decent trot I might have done, but instead she just got some aloof & haughty expressions.

La la la, I'm not listening

I did kind of strike a pose to show you the sign I got from Sunshade, but I wasn't going to smile, oh no siree.

And as if mum isn't torturing me enough with a week of lampshade wearing & stoopid short walks, she then decides I need a brush. Well, I was kind of scruffy & had large amounts of marrowbone stuck around my moustache & on my legs, but I like being messy. At least it wasn't a shower I suppose. Mum makes me stand on the table to brush me as it makes me behave better. It's not that far down, but it's still quite scary as you can see from my worried glance.

Giving mum the evil "I've had enough now" face. It worked, & I got a biscuit, woo hoo!

How can all that fur have come off little old me?! And that was just with the brush!! Maybe I did need it after all. Hmm, you win this time mum.


I get to go to puppy class tonight, yay! I can't wait to see my girl Molly & all my other friends as I haven't seen them since the Christmas Party. I think I'm probably going to be a bit crazy after my week of rest & recuperation! Let's hope we don't have to do too many new exercises!
Licks,

Yep, doing my silver now. Looks a bit more tricky but I'm sure as long as mum has lots of treats I'll do most stuff!

Oscar Airedale said...

Boo - No, it doesn't hurt but vet said no running to avoid swelling.

Super Boy & Baby - Puppy class is ALWAYS fun!

Maggie - Molly is now in the big girl class, noooooooooooooo!

Bussie - she's a true Brit!

Joe - you are so, so lucky to not need brushing, very jealous.

FuFu - that's nothing, I can run so much faster than that.

Marvin - Back to rain & gales this morning, ho hum

Simba - I know. Not just treat but CHICKEN!!!

I don't mean to rub it in but Kaylie was running, jumping & playing real rough with me since the 4th day after the operation. The vet was surprise she didn't tear her stitches. We went to the beach just 8days after her ops too.

I'm sure you'll be alright. Hope U get to "mess" around @ puppy class.

Hurray Oscar! No more lampshade, hehehe. You look so handsome in your photos. We have lots of dead hair come out too when Mama brushes our hair. Have you tried the Furminator? Works pretty well in between our strippings.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
