The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

Soggy Sunday

Wet all weekend in fact. It has barely stopped raining here for 2 days & I'm soooooooooo bored. Mum has managed an hours walk in between the downpours both days but I normally have much more fun out and about than that at the weekend so I am not impressed.

Look at the view into the garden, nice! The whole patio was underwater earlier today. I haven't even been that keen to go out to toilet. Mum had to put my lead in & forcibly drag me out there first thing, hehehe. Most times I've been out I've gone & hidden in my tunnel as soon as I've done my business to wait for mum or dad to open the door!

Mum restocked the freezer so I have had some pretty nice food - oxtail, lamb shank & some yummy heart - so that made the days a bit more exciting.

Apart from that I have been moping about and doing lots of snoozing.

Dad has started teaching me a new trick too, so that took up some time. It's a work in progress at the moment, but I think it will be quite good when I've honed it a bit more.

Hopefully your weekend isn't as wet and wild as mine, but in case you're at a loose end too, I thought I'd leave you with some jokes. Enjoy!

My neighbour has two dogs. One of them says to the other "Woof!" The other replies "Moo!" Why did you say "Moo?" the first dog asks. "I'm trying to learn a foreign language!"

What do you get if you cross a computer with a guard dog?
A computer with a lot of bytes!

I met a lady the other day with a very strange looking dog. When I asked what it was she said "Oh, it's a great dog. It's half Lab, half Pitt Bull. Sure, it might bite my leg off, but it will always bring it back to me!"

A teacher was explaining all about plants to her pupils. "Some plants have the prefix "dog" - for example Dog rose, Dogwood, Dog violet..." She asked if anyone in the class could name another. "I can" shouted a little girl "Collie-flower!"

The other day I saw 2 dogs walk over to a parking meter. One says to the other "How do you like that? Pay toilets!"

What happened to the dog that ate nothing but garlic?
His bark was much worse that his bite

What do you get if you cross a German Shepherd with an air compressor?
I don't know what you'd call it, but it sure puts the wind up the postman!

A man goes into a bar and sees 4 dudes playing cards at a table...only thing is one of them is a dog! He watches fascinated as the dog places bets, ups the ante and finally folds. One of the card players gets up to leave, clips a lead on the dog and starts to walk out. The first man approaches him and says "Is that your dog? Wow, he's so clever. I've ever seen a dog play poker before. he must be a genius" The dog owner laconically replies "Aw, he's not so smart really. Every time he gets a good hand he wags his tail"

Entering a country store, a traveller notices a big sign saying "Beware of the Dog!". He tiptoes over to the counter in case of attack but all is quiet, except for a loud snoring sound. Reaching the counter, he looks down and sees an ancient, skinny, grey-muzzled dog lying fast asleep on the floor. He says to the store owner "Are you kidding? He doesn't look dangerous to me" "He's not dangerous" the storekeeper replies, "but I had to put the sign up. People kept tripping over him"

What goes "mark mark"?
A dog with a hair-lip

Hope I made you smile!

Very funny Oscar. You're quite the stand-up comedian!
The wet weather spoilt my plans for today too.

Pats & pets to you

Faya said...

Oh mon pauvre Oscar.... qui n'aime pas la pluie ! Heureusement que tes maîtres ont trouvé de quoi t'occuper. Mais je trouve que tu obéis beaucoup pour un airedale. Oh non je sais : tu veux t'engager dans un cirque pour pouvoir voyager et venir chez moi ! Oscar tu es le meilleur. Gros bisous de ta Faya

I don't like going out in the rain either. I like your rollover trick. I used to do that too, but I can't anymore because of my back (well, that's my excuse anyway!). J x

Boo said...

Marvin The Dog said...

ps the "Mark Mark" joke, was one Jeannie used to love when she was younger, she used to live near a place called Mark, in Somerset. Every time she drove through the village, my Dad says, the joke was recited!!!!!!! To much hilarity, until everyone got fed up with her and told her to shut up!!!!!

Made her giggle this morning to see it once more! Great stuff!

Amber-Mae said...

Another excellent job by you Oscar! Loved it!!! Hey maybe we both should compete one day... But once again, I don rollover as fast you do coz I'm big & hefty!

Love licks,
