My half birfday- I'm 6 months old today!

My mom has been home the last couple of days- she took time off from her "regular" job to work at her shop. So she's home more (YAY!) and I get computer time. Although she goes to the shop and leaves me and Mr. Whiskers home alone. That's alright- at least I get some computer time. In honor of my half birfday, I thought I'd go through some of my pictures of me growing up. As you will see, I've changed ALOT. The other reason why I thought I'd share some older pictures of you is because mom's batteries fell out of her camera so she couldn't take any "new" pictures of me, and she promised me I could post again today! So here we go.....a trip down memory lane. Please note, that when mom got me, she was really busy taking care of Angel Daisie. She was getting sicker and sicker. That is the reason why there aren't any really early pictures of me. The other reason why is alot of my really early pictures are WITH Angel Daisie, and it makes mom and the hooman pups sad to see her so I had to be careful. I know someday mom will share with you some of those pictures, as soon as the time is right! So here is a picture of me, sleeping (which I rarely do now unless its at night). Mom put me on the couch, and one of the hooman pups left their bracelet on the couch. I nuzzled right up to it, making it go right over MY muzzle, and went to sleep. Mom thought it was funny, and CUTE!
The next picture is me on my mom's bed. It would have been right after she brought me home from Jeff's. Jeff is the hooman that owns my mom and dad, Ted and Roxy. Someday mom said she is going to take me out to visit them! My brother also lives there, but I don't know what Jeff named him.

This next photo is one that mom took while trying to decide what she was going to do for the Christmas Card exchange. She ended up taking a picture of Angel Daisie, me and the hooman pups for the card. Then Daisie went to be with the big doG in heaven.
This is a photo from my don't look at me it was the dog blog. I like it, because I think it shows me looking incredibly cute, and of course, innocent! O-K, maybe not all that innocent, but REALLY cute!
Remember my ear gluing experience? I wanted to add a picture of me BEFORE that horrible experience! Here I am riding in the car, little do I know what is in store for me!
The next picture is of me, and my glued hair do. I tell you, us Airedale's will do ANYTHING to be bootiful. While at the time, I didn't care to be glued, I am glad that my mom did that to my ears since it makes me look so much cuter.
We didn't get alot of snow this year, but when we got it, WE GOT IT!! We had two snow storms in ONE week! I luved playing in the snow. I just wish that I would have had more time to enjoy it. It seemed like it was here one day and gone the next. Now our yard is all muddy and mucky and mom is constantly wiping my feet.
As you all know, and probably remember, I was really good at getting into trouble with my teef. I am glad to tell you that since my last surgery all my big dog teef are in, and I am being very good at not eating things I am not supposed to (mom here: yeah, right, Lillie. You are eating shoes like mad. I don't even have a good pair to wear anymore. It doesn't matter if I put them in the closet or not- someone will leave the closet door open and you go and help yourself!) This picture is of me, and my Vet, Dr. Jennifer. She takes REALLY good care of me. AND she is SO nice!!! I just love her. (mom here: and we own half of her veterinary clinic HAHA)
Did I mention that Jordan and I just LUV Nascar? We watch the races on Sunday afternoons. It is a good time for me to bond with him. Sometimes I am rough with him though- I don't know when to stop playing, and he gets rough with me too. Sometimes mom puts us in time out. She sends us to our room.
I luv to lay on my hooman's beds. Here I was helping supervise Jordan's room cleaning. I had just gotten groomed. I am looking much bigger, aren't I?
An original Airedale pose- head tilt and all!
Mom took this picture of me in honor of St. Patrick's Day, and HER 11th celebration of her 29th birfday. (whatever that means) I am modeling a classy St. Patrick's Day bandanna. Mom says I am getting bigger every day. People ask her when I will stop growing. But I am still a Pup! I hope that you enjoyed looking at all my pictures today, and until next time.....I gotta go check if there are any dishes in the sink that need to be washed, or if any of mom's counters need cleaning!

Heyya Lillie Valentine!
You are just the cutest! I can relate to just about EVERYTHING you have described - the glue, the shoes, etc!
Mum has so many shoes, why SHOULDN'T I chew em' up? I mean, does she really need them ALL?
