So yes anyway, we were out walking this morning and bumped into our postie and he said "Morning Oscar, I think I've got a parcel for you here!". I sat down and waited while he rummaged in his bags. Sure enough he pulled out a silver package! Mum let me carry my parcel home, which I managed even though it smelt really good and I was itching to open it right there and then.
It was from my friend Finni! He is a really cool guy, just a little bit older than me. He lives in the north of England near where mum's mum, auntie and best friend live. Finni and I haven't met up yet, but we're hoping to next time I go up to visit grandma and mum's bestest friend Sarah. It was Finni and his mum who helped mum with lots of information and support when she switched me to my BARF diet, and his mum is also suggesting some natural remedies for some of my annoying health issues like my icky eyes and my sensitive stomach.
Isn't he a super handsome boy? There are some other very nice photos of him on his site, so go and check it out! I'm getting a bit worried about all these airetractive Aireboys that are around now! As well as fine-looking Finni there's the beautiful Bogart and striking Stanley, as well as the young pups Jaffa and Mitch who are growing more handsome by the day. Finally, my little namesake osKar is working hard on his blog, so you'll all be able to drool over him soon too! I think I need to work of my handsome-ness and get mum to finish my Aire-do (can't believe I'm actually wanting to have some hair ripping done!) and get rid of my gunky eyes which a back again, grr.
Once we got home it was time to tear open that parcel! I could smell something really good in there! It was also wrapped in lovely popping plastic stuff which I just adore, so that was a present in itself. Oh, and mum is talking to the little boy next door who is a real chatterbox and is telling mum all about his new slippers! He's the one I like playing the "chase up and down the fence game" with!
Wowee, look what I got! A set of 3 Air Kong balls! I love the Aire Kong stuff for its' super squeaky-ness; that's why I loved the Aire Kong rings I got for my barkday from Simba and Putter. Mum likes them as they are made from non-abrasive fluff that doesn't wear your teethies down like normal tennis balls can, yawn!
There were also 2 piggy ears in there, no wonder it smelled so good!
Can you hear that annoying bird cawing away in the background? It was really putting me off my chewing, stoopid bird!
Once I had demolished that I wanted to try out the tennis balls.
Yay, they're quite strong even for my monster jaws, I'm really going to enjoy playing with these! Even though mum was trying to get ready to go out I insisted on a bit more play!
Thanks so much for my great presents Finni! You and your mum are very kind.
Now, you may have noticed that I was wearing a rather dapper new bandanna in those photos and videos! That's right, I got yet another barkday present! I reckon I'll still be getting presents by next barkday! Mum says I'm a spoiled brat! My bandanna is from my very good pals Boy and Baby! They asked Butchy and Snicker's very clever mum to make it especially for me, wasn't that sweet, especially as they had already sent me a very cool tuggy for my barkday. I really LOVE my new bandanna you guys! I have been wearing it lots, so much so that mum has already had to wash it twice as it keeps getting all muddy from jumping in the river with it on, then running around the fields.
Here I am modelling it while it is nice and clean! It has a print of a very handsome looking Airedale on it...unlike me who looks very scruffy!
When I went inside to have my dinner I ended up looking very stoopid as it flipped over my face, kind of a cross between a bandanna and a pirate's eye patch! Ar har me hearties! All I need now is a parrot on my shoulder!
Thank you Boy and Baby. I really like it a lot and it co-ordinates with my tan and black fur just pawfectly!
I will wear it to obedience class in the hope that it gives me the power to do my annoying 5 minutes sit-stay which I am still trying to achieve!
