Guess who's home!!

First of all sorry I havent posted sooner, I have been keeping mom EXTREMELY busy! And so as most of you already know, I landed safe and sound in Washington on Thursday night. The aire-plane ride was very scary at first, but since I had my kong with me with yummy peanut butter and a Ziggie inside I kept somewhat busy. Mom and her mom, and my moms friend all came to the cargo area to pick me up. Mom was sooo nervous, and so was I! But most of all I just wanted to get out of my crate after being stuck in there for so long. Then soon enough, some man picked up my crate, set it on the counter of the enterence and said "One puppy!" which is when my mom and her mom both sprung up to see me! Mom says I looked exactly like I did in the pictures, I dont know what else she was expecting hehe. Mom tried to take a picture but I was so squirmy it came out blurry but Ill show it anyway.

We then went home and mom let me spend half of the car ride in her lap, and the other half in my moms moms' lap. I have been chewing on ALL of my toys plus the carpet, shoes, drapes, blankets, chairs and everything inbetween that suits my fancy. Mom has been teaching me things like sitting, and laying down on command which I can now do both already. Heres a video of me sitting down for mom. You also hear her say something about a bath which well get to in a minute.

Shes also been trying to get me to pee outside which has happened a couple times (I accidentally made a couple of messes on the carpets) whats the deal with peeing outside anyway?

And here is a picture of me being calm (mom: finally!)

The classic Airedale head cock

And then here are some photos of me in the bathtub.

Well thats about it for now, Im gonna beg mom for a walk and so now youre all up to date! Ill have more photos coming soon, and Ill apologize ahead of time if were not on for a couple of days, mom just has no time now cause of me hehe!

Puppy breath and lively licks,

I'm sure the flight here must have been scary, but you were very brave. It certainly does help to bring toys along to play with on the way.

Your humans must have been so excited to finally meet you (and you excited to meet them, too)! You must be getting lots and lots of love, eh?

Good job on chewing everything. Chewing is what puppies do best. I'm sure your humans must appreciate the marks you're leaving all over the house!

You're really good at sitting! I'm gonna me 7 years old this summer, and I still don't like to sit on command, hee hee. But, horror of horrors! I really did hear the word "BATH" in that video! I can't believe your human put you through that terrible torture! I'm just so glad you survived through it. I hope you don't get another bath for a long, long time!

Again, welcome hope! I hope you're having a grrrrEAT weekend, and we'll be looking forward to more pictures and reading more about the adventures you have at your new home!

Oh, Gaia, we're soooo glad you're finally home! Now it's time for your mom to puppy-proof your house! When we were your age, we chewed on EVERYTHING! Now that we are much older, we very seldom chew on anything except our stuffies!

Willow the Black Dale said...

Finally Gaia I was wondering when you were going to make to your mommy! You were a brave puppy dale to fly all that way by yourself. I am sure you had the aireplane people eating out of your cute little paws.

I was sorry to see you had to have a bath at the end of your journey. Maybe your mommy will forget about those stinky things for awhile. When she is not looking run outside and head for the dirt!!!

Keep on chewing that is a puppies job!!!

nose pokes,

Faya said...

A bath is not what you were expecting as "welcome" gift no ?
Kisses, Faya

Hey Sweet's the link for Ruby's site... cept it won't let you link....hmm...guess you'll have to type it in....

I told her to put ur cribbie next to me on the plane and that we'd need a bottle warmer for ur formula....I am an expert with babies...but that's another story. Tell ur mom we will take very good care of you and I will not let you out of my site...I think ur the youngest pup comin'....

So how's life at home??? Those Aire puddles on the floor are just an indication of how healthy ur kidneys are...don't let ur peeps tell ya anything else!!! Send mumsie ur address and we'll send ya a little baby gift as a DWB's welcome!!! If your mom's mom is ok with live in Pennsylvania and Mumsie is a nurse and daddy is a can call us if she has a problem...

Lakie lickies....

I feel you on the bath! Those things are horrible! My human makes me smell like lavendar and mint...I hate it! She loves it 'cause she just sniffs me lots until I go and romp around in some dirt! Yay Dirt!!! Hehehe you look just like me about a month ago! I just got my first Aire cut and now I'm naked. As for the chewies...if your mom needs any help with that just holler! I'm in the middle of losing some teeth, so I'm a fantasitc chewer! Woohoo!
