Where have we been?

Hi everyone ~

It's Roy Boy here....We have been busy with some crazy life stuff...our Dad had the worst...cancer.  He had to go through some rough treatments...Mumsie would go with him and then he would feel lousy for a long time...but we know that things are better cause Dad is better and back to work and Mumsie is smiling and they things like, "We are blessed" and "Thank God you are ok"....Dad must be all fixed up now...we're happy...wagging our tails over that one....

Kids have kept both Mum & Dad busy...they are now 15, 13 and 10...can't even believe that!  I am on my way to being 7 but that's not til next March....yes, yes, I'm six years old....Old man of the's ok, I'm pretty spry, Mum still takes me with her to go see all those doggies she takes care of...

We have lots of pictures of what's gone on round here but will post a couple of our most recent pictures...I think we are looking pretty good... I'll be back again soon to post another update and in the meantime, resume my Secret Service Agent duties for my Mum...keep the house safe and protect her...all in a days work for this Airedale.  Nose pokes my friends... We are all good...happy to be back on the blog.

Well, what's going on?

Hello everyone in dog blog land!

We have been our busy selves these have lacrosse games, I have been both gaining and losing clients (economy is number one reason for gains and losses's been tough here in the northeast...) The dales have been coming to work wiff mumsie and keeping all our clients that. 

The bunnies have been a focus...they went back out in their hutches with the threat of really freezing temps gone.  They still have lots of fleece to snuggle in for a few remaining chilly nights.  I've surprised myself, I"m quite attached to them!  Noah and Cotton are sweet pets.  The dales would gobble them up in heart, we keep them separate.  Not to mention that I think the bunnies would have a heart attack from fear...So I snuggle with them in front of TV with the dales either outside or in their room. 

Can't believe how fast they grow up...boys are 5 and Lola is 2....whooo!  We still talk to Mamma Sherry on a weekly basis...yep, she'll always be part of the pack.  We love ya Sher!

Just a quick hello....a few piccies.... enjoy!  Love to all our bloggie friends!

And the bunnies, of course!

Summer has been CRAZY!

Hey there all you dog-bloggers!

We at Camp Griffindale have been so busy this summer. Seems like we are here only once every month or so. SORRY! Really, we love our bloggy friends but summer has us OUTSIDE! And there have been some fine moments.....

First, Lola Dale has learned to swim! We went to a friend's cottage on a nearby lake and Lola came along. She's been to the beach about 1,000 times but had never really learned to swim. You know, all four paws in the watter, not touching? She learned with Mumsie! We had a ball and she did great. Such an OUTSTANDING DOG! I have to say, Mamma Sherry at Tenkiller Kennels outdid herself. Lola is just perfect in soooo many ways! Even our vet agreed that she is a perfect specimen of a dog - and oh so beautiful as well. Nice!

She's Mamma's Girl, Daddy's Girl and has more boyfriends with Mommy's clients than she can wag her tail at. Perfectly behaved 99.9% of the time.....I can't say anything more that's better. We ADORE our Lola. She is lovey-dovey and she is playful and even the boys (Roy and Jack) love and adore her. She's a GREAT dog.

Roy Al loves to swim also and he went to the beach this summer. Green Harbor Beach in Marshfield was the place we landed this particular day. He swam with Mumsie, a lot, and he got to be a lounge lizard with his sister Ally too. Roy is very well behaved on the beach, and everywhere else too, really. He loves to swim and doesn't really like to come out of the water, especially if at a beach where he can touch and walk in and out himself. Sometimes he'll stand on his hind legs and rest his front paws on my arms or knees and just hang out out in about waist deep water. He did this with me and jumped down and forgot he was out so deep and went right under! No worries Mumsie, he just shook it off, no muss no fuss. Such a good boy Roy Al.

The Cracker Jack has been busy trying to keep his status as PACK LEADER while Lola has been giving him a serious run for the money. Though he is determined to be his Mumsie's main man for a long time to come. My buddy. Love the Cracker. He has assumed a new position while lounging with the family at home...his very own chair! Can you believe he squeezes his furry butt into a leather chair? Well, he does, routinely! Love the Bum! He's our bestest boy and he is a super working dale by the way. He works with me a lot and he is just fantastic with all my clients doggies. Super good boy. Look at him in that chair though, too funny!

We hope you all have been well over the summer and are looking forward to the fall. Apple picking is our family's favorite fall activity. Ahead of myself here though....we have one last beach hurrah coming up, Dad and I are off on a day of adventure down the Cape...maybe in the Jeep! And then there's Labor Day weekend, so....lots can happen!
Love to all our bloggy friends.....Mwah! Mwah!
Big nose pokes too!
Mamma Griffindale and all the kids!

Been a long time

HELLO EVERYONE!!!!! We love ya...sorry we've been missing.....

Umm, yes, we know, it's been a very long time....yep, a month. Seems that with work and kids and dogs and life, we get to this about once a month. We are sorry! But you should know we have been fine....things have been going well for us recently and we are wish you all love and happiness. Especially our friends that have been having difficult times.....WE THINK OF YOU ALWAYS!

Business has been growing...Praise God for HIS HELP! Whooo-hooo! I just love what I am doing and I am so blessed that my business has been growing. So, thank you to the big doggie upstairs! Love ya! In turn, keeps me busy, fit and tired at night. I walk dogs from about 8 AM until about 4PM each day....usually about 6 to 8 stops a day. I love it....I have pups and older dogs, some I run with with, some jog in the woods with me, some just walk around their neighborhood or stay in their yards! So much unconditional love all day keeps me a happy and well adjusted girl. My husband is most grateful as well.

The kids, Roy, Jack and Lola, all get to take turns and accompany me. I have clients that ASK for them to come along so their pets can get some socialization each day! How nice is that? Very special.

Look at how great the kids are looking....
Bless you all.....hugs and kisses....

Lola Turned ONE!

Hey There Every Dawg & Cat.....

Our girlie turned one....yes, it was a quiet family celebration...just three crazy dales, Mumsie and Dad and frosty paws treats! She is just beautiful and takes my breath away. We called Mamma Sherry , our Breeder, to share the day with her.

Easiest just to say this....I am grateful for the gift of Lola and joy she has brought to me and my family...she is a treasure. I cannot begin to put in words how special she is to me....but she is the baby girl that God wanted me to have ~ and I'm good with that! We adore our Lola Dale, big girl is ONE!

Here is our beautiful girl's latest photo shoot!

St. Patrick's Day with the Griffindales....

Hello There Everydog and Everyfriend....

Mumsie Griffindale here...along with LOLA DALE ...yes, we've been busy. Always seems there is something that comes up and keeps us busy! Mumsie's busy-ness has been keeping her focused on her clients and their doggies. Then we have the 2 legged kiddos, they have had basketball, concerts and Ally's 13th birthday pawty. Yes, we've had lots to do.

However, you are always in our hearts and minds!

We first want to say that we are in thoughtful and respectful mourning for Lu-lu and Bogart. How our hearts broke when we heard the news about Klaus, his difficult illness and his unexpected passing so early in life. Lu-lu....we are here...thinking of you and Bogart and loving you and saying BIG BIG AIREPRAYERS for you both.

We hope you don't mind that we have borrowed one of your pictures...this is our 3 are connected in sheer love. We will continue to remember you all in our hearts and prayers way over here on the other side of the country. We send you wishes for peace...

Lu-lu , Klaus and Bogart
Pawsitively true blue love

We have been busy trying to be good scoobies and share our Aire-ness with so many OTHER DOGGIES around us. Luckily, Mumsie let's us occasionally go to work with her...we can share our Aire-suasion and Aire-ways with all of her doggie friends. So, here are a few of our recent connections wiff the D-O-G's she takes care of! We love to help Mumsie and make friends!!!!

This is me, LOLA DALE and my friend Tucker in Mumsie's Jeepie....we had a pawesome time that day! Tucker is a Wheaton!

Here I am wiff my fwiend Sandy...we LOVE to romp in the snow and we always have fun together..... Sandy Man is a Vizsla.

This is Master Roy Al having a good day with Tucker. They went to Norris Reservation was a great day, for sure!

And of course, Master Cracker Jack is part of the Pawesome Pals working team. We try to make friends wiff all our doggie clients. Jack has fun with Sandy...he likes to track the deer in the woods as much as Sandy. Airedales have been used as hunting dogs and Sandy is a Vizsla...they too are hunting dogs!

Finally, Here I am wiff my fwiend Bella Boop! Bella is a still a pup like me - she's a Westie. I like her lots....we have fun together.....

So you see, Mumsie has been busy taking care of our pals. We help as much as we can and we always do our Airey-best to make her shine! We are happy that the snow has melted and our paws are crossed for NO MORE SNOW!


We hope that SPRING arrives soon, and decides to stay! Lots more pictures to come...Mumsie has spring fever and has been clicking away! WE LOVE ALL OUR BLOGGIE FWIENDS AND WILL BE OUT VISITING SOON....MmmmmmmmmWAH!
Big Big Love to you all ~
Lola Belle and her Mumsie
