ADT Club beach picnic

Wow what a great time we had on Sunday.
The Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria held their annual Beach Picnic. They didn't have one last year (because where they hold it was being renovated)
But this year it was HUGE.
There were Dales running EVERYWHERE.

Brooke came with us too........woo hooo. I think she was impressed at the sight of all us gorgeous Airedales lol.

We got to meet up with our Dale friends Mr Periwinkle, Sam and Charlie and their pinky Jane. We got to see Lou Lou and Sue Forrester, (Sue runs Dale rescue in Aust). We saw Jaffa and Hazel (Jaffa is a princess rescued from hell). And we saw Curly and Tzara from our breeders "Yorkpark".
We met lots of new dales too.

But very best of all - my daddy Elton was there AND my brother Morris was there too!
Morris and I had a wonderful reunion on the beach.
We were both allowed off lead (thank you pinkies, it was my first time off lead in public)
We ran and ran and jumped on each other and ran between all the big Dales and played bitey face. I even put my paws in the bay.
It was my very first time at the beach. I think pinky wanted to see if I would go into the water.
I did, but only up to my knees (do Dales have knees?)

We guess that there were about 40 Airedales at the picnic, there were many more pinkies, but us Dales were the important focus of the day (and rightly so too).
It was a great turnout, especially as it had been raining on Sunday morning and we weren't sure it would still be on. But the weather held off and it wasn't too bad - it didn't rain on us.

Pinky was far too busy yak yak yakking to take many photos. But Brooke took lots and she is going to put them on a disk for pinky.
So photos will be posted soon.

Miss Ellie was a big sookie baby on the day. She was as happy as larry to be there for the first 10 minutes, but once she had said hello to all the other dales and their pinkies she was ready to go home. Silly old girl.
She needs to learn how to PARTY like me and Morris. We had fun.

Thanks ADT Club - it was a great afternoon.
I flaked out and slept in the car all the way home.

Love ya lots,

Ellie! Baz!!!

Your beach fun sounds awesome! I would love to be reunited with my brother! I bet there was nothing but cuteness with all of those Dales around!

By the way, I love all of the pictures you posted on the 13th! Baz!!! You looked a lot like I do, except not as dirty...I kinda look like a mud ball right now!
