oh my oh my

Gosh I've been far too quiet for far too long. Many thanks to my wonderful friends who worried where I had disappeared to.

It's all Mum's fault as usual. First she got sidetracked sorting out photos to submit to an exhibition (if you want to take a peek, they are on her Flickr site). Then the weather went foul - 70 mph winds - and she wouldn't bring the camera out with us. Then she went and got a job. Ridiculous. The temp agency called late on Monday afternoon and she was in work the next morning. I was not at all happy that she would leave the house without me and be gone for so long unsupervised. I've been driving Dad mad. At least he has the good sense to work from home.

Anyway, she's under strict instructions to get her act together this weekend. Look at what has been happening whilst she has been so useless:

Not one, but two glorious golden roses have come my way. The first was from my fantastic buddies Maggie and Mitch. Do you know, they sent me a Christmas card and it was the first card to arrive at our house. Can you imagine how great it felt for me to have a card before my mum and dad got any? Ha ha! Priceless!

The second one was from the ever-wonderful Bogart. Bogart was the first dog blog my family ever saw. In fact, it was one of the reasons my mum and dad decided that they really needed an Airedale to spice up their life. So getting a rose from Bogey made me run loop-the-loop round the house with excitement.

I'm going to send this rose on over to Molly and Gertrude. We still haven't met in person though we've had walkies in the same forests. But you are two big-hiking adventure loving girls, so I know when we do meet there's going to be some serious wrestling and chasing to be done.

Here's a few pics of what I've been up to over the last few weeks. This is walking on Culmstock Beacon the day after the 70mph winds and lashing rain. Cold and windy, but lots of splashing to be done in the stream running along the path.

How ridiculous do I look here?

I'm getting used to the frosty weather and it still doesn't stop me going for a swim in the canal a couple of times every day.

Now, this is 100% pure Airedale. We were bred to hunt along riverbanks and here I am diving into the undergrowth along the canal bank. Check that curly wurly tail!

Right, I'd better catch up with what you have all been up to. Hairy kisses to you all.


  1. What IS going on with your legs in that photo?! You must be double jointed!

    Looks like your coat stripping is going well, well done to mum!

    Toodle pip,

  2. We just love that "ridiculous" photo of you, Mojo! It's looks like you're diving into the water from a height!
    Glad you got the first Christmas card! It just goes to show who's the most important!
    shhhhhhhhhh don't tell them we said that!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  3. Hey, Mojo!

    You are ALIVE!!! I never doubted it for a moment, but it's good to see you out romping about. That second photo of you is freakishly artistic! I love to watch you in action!

    Congratulations on the Christmas card and the 2 roses you received. You are MORE than deserving.

    Tell your mama that with your dad's spy salary she shouldn't have to work outside the home (unless her being at home all the time cramps his spying style).

    Goober love & smooches,

  4. Hi, Mojo
    Congratulations on your awards! Too bad your mom has to work! I hope that doesn't mean no lovely walkies for you!
    Have a good night

  5. Hey Mojo, I love that photo with your legs akimbo! How did you do that?? J x

  6. Hey Mojo,
    Glad your back. We missed you.
    Love that funny

    Hugs and tail wags
    Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

  7. Mojo, you look like a bear in that river!

    Your friend, Lenny
