Will you all still play with me?

Oh dear. I haven't posted since Boxing Day which is RIDICULOUS. So many of you have sent me messages to ask how I am, which has been most wonderful. I feel like I should have some kind of sensible explanation but all I can do is blame Mum. First we had relatives to stay, then she came down with some bug that laid her out, then she went back to work. Next thing I knew, I hadn't been visiting anyone's blogs for ages and felt too guilty to post on my own. Now, if only dogs had opposable thumbs like humans, I would be able to ditch Mum and use the computer myself.

But I miss all my buddies. Some, like Cassidy, seem to have doubled in size while my back has been turned. So I hope you might forgive me and let me run with the pack again.

In the absence of a good shot to show you how grown up and lovely I am at 10 months old, here's one of me at a mere 8 weeks. My first visit to the pub, and I'm a natural boozehound. I love licking the outside of pint glasses. I also try to sneak my tongue into the inside when no-one's looking, but that gets frowned upon.

And here is the video from Christmas Day that Mum was editing just as the relatives arrived. If you ever wondered how daft an Airedale can be....

Like the way I can roll my tail up like a party tooter?
(Hope the video works for you. For some reason Blogger refuses to play it to the end for me.)


  1. Hi hi Mojo! Ruby's daddy telled my mummy you be OK. We sended an email or two to you a while ago. Me wants to meet you! Yes, me is getting big, but not as big as you! We wented to the club show today, me thought you might be there.

    Is that the sand dunes where you want to meet Ruby? Me really wants to go there, whee! Me will be super good girl so me and big Harry can come for run around.

    My tail goes opposite way to yours, but it not be so curly. Me likes your boingy tail!

    Talk to you soon Mojo.

    PS Me likes beer too, 'specially frothy bit.

  2. Oh my dog Mojo, you're back. We were getting worried about you. So glad all is ok.
    You look like you're having a ball at the sand dunes. You bounce all over the place.
    We're so glad your back yay.

    Hugs and tail wags

  3. Hi, Mojo!
    It makes me so happy to know that everything is ok with you and your family! I was worried!
    I love your video. You are acting like possessed! Sure is nice to see you that happy!
    Kisses and hugs

  4. We've missed you soooooooooo much, Mojo! Mitch says that the both of you would make great drinking buddies!
    Great video! Blogger played it all the way to the end for us!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. Welcome back, Mojo. Dun go MIA again.

    The video works fine for me right to the end.


  6. Sweet Mojo!

    So glad you're back, girlie. I have sorely missed your craziness and unpredictable tail. (That bit where you lie down and uncurl your tail might have fooled others, but being an avid Mojo fan, I knew it would be but a matter of seconds before that thing curled back up & you were bouncing your way out of the camera frame)!

    Tell your peeps they are as bad as my girl when taking video of me or STella. Do their voices ALWAYS sounds like that, or just when they're filming. (Your dad has the most hilariously cheesey laugh... for a spy. He might want to work on that).

    Glad your mama is feeling better. I'm sending some extra healing goober smooches along just in case she is still fighting off any vestiges of that nasty bug she had.

    Can't wait to see & hear more from Mojoland.

    Goober love & smooches,
    Stanley (& Stella)

  7. Dear Mojo,
    Lovely video - that sand looks like such fun! We have worked out why we never bump into you at Killerton - it is because we go to the woods that are actually right next to Killerton House and Ashclyst Forest if the other side of the motorway, just a few minutes away! We really must try Ashclyst forest now that we have worked out that it is a different place! We love your tail - you are like Tigger!

    Love Molly and Gertrude

  8. Mojo !!! Wooohooo it is nice to see you again ! Welcome back ! I wish I could come and dig dig dig with you...
    Kisses, Faya

  9. Hi Mojo

  10. WooHoo Glad you are back!! You have a FABULOUS tail!!!! Love A+A
