Our new Aireboy

Well it gives us all the greatest of pleasure to announce the fact that we are getting a new Airedale puppy!

And not just any puppy either mind you - he is Harley's great grandson, making him my great nephew!

Oh how wonderful is that???

The pinkies are so happy. I can't wait till they bring him home.
He was born on Dec 15th, just three days after Harley passed away.
Mum thinks it is almost "meant to be".
We are all sure Harley is watching from the night sky and wagging her tail in delight.
The pinkies have picked a star just for Harley, and think that having one of her descendants is a great way to continue our family.

We have chosen a name already, he will be called "Bazza" but his official title will be:
"Yorkpark Bearach Shining Star".
Mum chose Bearach for a few reasons. It is gaelic and mum's daddy was from Ireland. It has Bear in it, and mum liked it.
The English tranlation of Bearach is Barry, so daddy says he will call him Bazza, which is a typical Australian nickname for any man named Barry.
So Bazza it is.

The pinkies will be able to go out and visit Di and David at Yorkpark in a couple of weeks (I hope I can come too?).
It is Melba's very first litter, and Di says she is doing exceptionally well as a first time mum. There were 2 girls and 5 boys. The pinkies are getting first pick from the boy puppies.

The only downside is we all have to wait until the middle of February before we can bring Bazza home. I can't wait to meet him.

I hope everyone had a realy nice Christmas. It was a quiet one here.
Mum had a few tears because Harley couldn't be with us for Christmas.
But I cheered her up by helping to open her presents.
I am very good at making my pinkies laugh.
They often call me a clown, but I think they mean it in a nice way though.

Bye for now.

Miss Ellie - the Superdale.

That is just the best news - we are so happy for you all. Harley would be pleased that you are going to take care of her great grandson I am sure. Bazza - how adorable you will be!!

We know your Christmas will not have been the happiest, but Harley was there with you and she always will be. Good things can come out of sad things and that is what makes life so special.

Love Kate
