Big day out in the Bush

Hey blogging buddies, it's sure been a while since we updated our blog. We have had a word to our mum and told her to lift her game.

We had an AWESOME day today.

Today was the Bush Picnic for the Airedale Terrier Club of Victoria. Our mum is on the committee now and so we get to go to all the events.

Today we packed up the car and headed out to Old Iron Park in St Andrews.

You might remember the really terrible bush fires that we had here way back in February, well Old Iron Park burnt to the ground and the Sorraghan family only just made it out alive with their 11 Airedales and a litter of Dale pups.

But we all headed over to their place today to see the smazing landscape of burnt out bush that is slowly starting to regenerate.

Ron and Anne are living in a converted shed while the big clean was taking place and now they can start to rebuild.

This is me - Bazzy - checking out the bush tracks on the property.

Here are some of our Dales friends trying to score a bit of sausage from the bbq lunch.

Look at this pretty little Airegirl.....awwwwww she was a sweetie!

And here is Old Miss Ellie saying hello to some of the Old Iron Dales that were in their Dale pen.

We were all running around off lead, and we were very well behaved (of course we are Airedales after all). We all said hello to each other with the traditional greeting "here let me sniff your butt!"

This is Old Iron's little Airepup - cute or what!

We took a bit of a run down the drive, it was a great game of chasey, that's my cute butt at the end there!

This is the Old Iron Airedale at the gate to the property - awesome huh?

Here are some of us, just hanging around the pinkies hoping for a bit of bbq.

I was a happy Aireboy, that's for sure.

And Old Miss Ellie too, she had the time of her life. Mum was concerned about how she would go, she had had another seizure just last month, not as bad as the one last December, but mum thought it might be too big a day for her - but she went really well.

She just trotted around at her own pace, said hello to everyone, then just wandered around checking the place out. She was pretty happy.

Notice she has her Planet Airedale bandanna on? Snazzy sissy - snazzy. I had one too (Harley's old one) but I managed to get it off before we were even out of the car!

So we were two very tired Dales by the end of the afternoon, and slept nearly the whole way home - but gee we had a blast!

Thanks to Ron and Anne for letting us run amok at their place.

Thanks to all the other Airedales that played with us and ran with us.

Thanks to all the pinkies for making it all happen!

Special Airedale Days Out rock!

See ya real soon
