The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

I Got Tagged

So I got tagged by Suki the other day & have finally got around to doing the post. Sorry for the delay Suki, I had too much of a fun weekend!

The deal is I have to post photos of me sleeping upside down. Now I don't know about you guys, but for an Airedale Terrier, upside down seems to be the position of choice for a comfy snooze, so mum had no problems finding some old photos of me and snapping some new ones for your viewing pleasure.

This was last night. I had had a major attack of the zoomies in the garden earlier, plus 2 big walks during the day so I was more than ready to catch some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's. Can someone please help me persuade mum that I need a bigger bed?!

This was Saturday evening. I had been working hard on my Busy Buddy making sure I had got every scrap of peanut butter out of it, so with full belly and tired jaw I decided to take a little nap. Roll over and relax, aaaaaaaaaaaaah.

This is how I used to sleep in my puppy crate. This was taken before I pulled the really nice squishy outer part of my bed tp pieces, hence why I now only have that stoopid little stripy cushion to sleep on. It was photos like this that made mum realise that I was really to big to go in my crate at night any more. Suits me as I now get to sneak onto the couch once mum and dad have gone to bed, hehehe. Check out my Army of Four style salute!

This is what happens when you get all your toys out of your toy box & play with them all. Total exhaustion, but a very worthy reason for being tired as I'm sure you'll agree!

This was taken back in January after my boy bits removal operation. It was the first night mum and dad let me sleep without the stoopid lampshade on and it was just so good to be able to relax properly. Apologies for the slightly rude photo, but it's honestly just post-op swelling. This was my original bed that I also destroyed, oops. But honestly mum, I promise if you got me a new comfy bed I would look after it soooooooo well.....

After looking at these photos, I'm a bit worried that I'm suffering from that illness where you fall asleep all the time!

Right, I have decided I am going to tag Asta (NY), Loui & Toby. Looking forward to seeing your photos!

Bogart said...

Hey Oscar, I think I'm the only Airedale alive who doesn't sleep upside down!

Mom thought your photos were terrific and funny!!!!


Ruby Bleu said...

You really do spend a lot of time sleeping...those were some great photos. And you really do need a bigger bed!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Billy said...

These are the truly comfy positions Oscar! I agree with you there, because mom often finds me like that! I say as long as it's comfy, who cares what I look like...and I agree, you do need a bigger bed!!!

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

terriers are just VERY good at sleeping, so we might as well do it a lot!
