I think I might keep her .....

Great picture....of me -- SHE was more interested in the mirror!
This one is a little least she isn't obsessed with the mirror this time ...
Hehehehe... (she is so petite)
I was a little disgusted -- but...yet another masterpiece... :)

I am Farfel, the ONLY Airedale in the Village -- yes, I am keeping MY title!! Star will have to earn her own title!!!

I have to admit, I do like the little girl, as long as she stays away from My MOMMY, and My food!! What more does a guy need ?? :) Star has barked twice -- it's an odd, very strange kind of hoarse bark! MOMMY says she has never heard a bark like that --EVER!! I guess one has to make certain concessions if they have such a looong tail... :)

Star does climb on the furniture now -- MOMMY was kind of worried, but not anymore :) MOMMY could only stand to keep Star in her crate for about two nights. She hated knowing she was downstairs all alone, while we were upstairs all warm and snuggly!! Wellllllllll...she is upstairs's OK though.. MOMMY makes her sleep on the floor (with like 10 blankets and pillows). Star does stay in the crate when nobody is home, and when she eats. I like to stare at her when she is in the crate...hehehehe :)

Soooo, I guess she is staying... even if I didn't like her (but I do)... I don't think MOMMY would give her up! MOMMY still tells me I am her special boy :) MOMMY even wants to get a tattoo of MY paw print :) brother's hands aren't tattooed on my MOMMY, and her license plate has MY name on it -- :) So, yeah, I am still loved!!!

Farfel -- The ONLY Airedale in the Village ... who is verrry tired!! It's tough keeping up with my younger sister!!

Star vs Farfel ... Farfel vs Star ......

I, Farfel the (once) ONLY Airedale in the Village, have had a few days to get used to my.....sister....Star! I have stopped barking at her 24/7...for the most part, I have stopped snarling at her -- BUT, she SNARLS at ME!! Her snarl isn't like a REAL snarl -- sure she shows her little tiny perfect teeth, but her snarl sounds like a cat hissss!! Hahahaha!! At night, I sleep upstairs in MOMMY'S room and Star, well, she sleeps in a crate....hahahahaahaha!! In the morning, I stick my nose in at her :)

MOMMY is getting used to her too! She has NEVER met a terrier that doesn't bark!! Star hasn't barked yet!! She kind of clears her throat politely! She will ..finally... sit on the furniture...but only if MOMMY forces and bribes her (sheeeesh, an Airedale who doesn't sit on the furniture!). Before Star lays down, she turns in circles, then plops down in a tiny little ball! She does NOT sleep on her back (like moi) an indelicate pose!! Star also.....chases...her tail!! Hahahaha how primitive!! I do not say that because I suffer from tail envy --even if I had a long Retriever tail, I still would NOT chase it!!!

MOMMY will come up to me and hug and kiss me as usual. That has not changed -- however, I know that behind her back she is petting Star. I really do not mind. It seems that since Star has arrived, everyone including my nemesis Joey -- has been kissing my BUTT!! So, sometimes I play the poor, sad, rejected, pitiful dog....hehehehehe :)

I cannot fault MOMMY for loving her. MOMMY loves all furry creatures (except rodents)! Star however, will not stop following MOMMY. So, since she is up and about, I HAVE to be up and about -- which cuts into my sleeping time! I think we are going to keep her. She is beautiful, but.. small. I think MOMMY thinks Airedales should all look and act like me. Star used to be in "Show" business. She is a retired champion. MOMMY says that if Star was able to achieve that, then she must look like a pretty good Airedale -- and maybe that's why she is so polite. Well, she STILL chases her tail -- dummy!! hahahaha!! I think I, Farfel the (once) ONLY Airedale in the Village is quite the perfect specimen!! I know in MOMMY'S eyes I am :) :) :)

Thank you for all of your kind posts :)

Lovely Miss Fergi are as beautiful as ever :)



One more thing....That is MY name in lights at Citifield (Ex-Shea Stadium), Flushing, NY.'s the METS ..but STILL :) (I bet Star never had her name in lights at Citifield) :) Go Yankees!!

(MOMMY can upload the pictures ... but she can't place them correctly!! Maybe Miss Smarty Pants Star can do it!! Really, I'm not jealous :) :) )

Here she is ..........

MOMMY said it was nearly impossible to take pictures of US! We wouldn't stay still at the same time... we wouldn't look in her direction at the same time...soooooooooo the pictures aren't that fantastic, except for the ones I , Farfel, the (once) ONLY Airedale in the Village!

Little Miss Star is the one with the PINK collar!! The pictures aren't great, and due to MOMMY'S lack of technical ability -- they weren't uploaded and placed very well!! I am just happy that MOMMY finally helped me blog and loaded the pictures :)

We will write more... let you know what's been going on in MOMMY'S life -- and mine too :) We are just trying to get used to this new little girl who is NOTHING like me -- we have not heard her bark....she won't get on the furniture (sheeeeeeeeeeeeesh)...She loves to go into her crate ( I do NOT need a crate!!)..She is petite -- but MOMMY said that Star is actually a perfect size, but that I, Farfel the (once) ONLY Airedale in the Village is simply ... PERFECT!!! Hehehe, I know :) I did hear MOMMY say to someone on the phone....that it is so easy to love Star.. so quickly...:) Me..well, it's gonna a take more time :)

More to come... I hope you enjoy the pictures :) MOMMY was going to put in a picture of Star's odd tail......but, I told her she shouldn' isn't nice to make fun of humines/canines who are "different!)

Short and Sweet...maybe!

I, Farfel, the (once) ONLY Airedale in the Village have an announcement to make...I now have a ..........sister!

She arrived several hours ago. I wasn't even notified in advance. I had no time to prepare. MOMMY and my nemesis, Joey left together. MOMMY came inside, put my restraining device (leash) on me, took me outside .....................and there SHE was -- with Joey!!! As soon as she saw me, she hunched down on the ground and looked as if she was going to stalk me....ME??? At that moment, I thought, this is the first time I have ever seen an insane dog!! Stalking ME? Farfel, the (once) ONLY Airedale in the Village?

So, there she was, short and sweet! She is short, and she is sweet...poor thing has this long growth---it might be a tail that has gone's nothing like my beautiful stumpy tail :)

Her name is.....Seneca Texas Sternchen --also known as: "STAR!" She is a very compact little girl. 50 pounds.. and a lot shorter than me. I weigh about 75 pounds (like a linebacker). MOMMY isn't thrilled with the name Star and is thinking of changing it to: "Starfel!" Not really, the little girl comes when called...unlike me, who comes when I am ready :) She is 5-years old. I don't hate her, but I am not sure if I like her...she is cute, she has that growth, and, I do not like my MOMMY touching her!!!!! I know my MOMMY sneaks around to hug the little girl...I guess that's OK.

Anyway, I will write more later, and include pictures -- if we ever sit still for MOMMY and stop trying to sniff each other ALL of the time!! I will also explain what has been going on in MOMMY'S life -- no excuse for not writing....but we hope you all understand!


Farfel, the (once) ONLY Airedale in the Village!

Miss Fergi -- I still love you!
MOMMY and I got tears in our eyes when we saw the picture of you and Jake at Forest Lodge Park. Soo close :(

More to come ................. :)

Good news!

I, Farfel, the ONLY Airedale in the Village, am happy to say that MOMMY received good news today!!!

I will write more later -- because now.... that heathen child is here, and my MOMMY is devoting ALL of her time to HIM!!! OH ... she did take a moment to pose that stupid dirty J. Fred Muggs next to me! He looks EVERY bit of 55-years old!! Not the young handsome gent I am!

Once again...thanks for all of your thoughts and kind words! They worked!!! No C-Word!!!!!! :)

OK ... WE (mostly MOMMY) is not good at loading pictures, or even writing this blog in a timely fashion will describe the photos she so haphazardly uploaded (ugh!)!

The first one .... the two VILE things keeping me from my MOMMY tonight!! That rotten monkey... and the grandheathen -- Marky! If I hear ..." Yia Yia ... Farfel is bothering meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!" one more time.... I am going to explode!

The second one .... UGH! He, that rotten monkey, is sitting on my butt -- need I say more?

The third one ... MOMMY and the grandheathen--taken at a restaurant tonight... I, Farfel, the ONLY Airedale in the Village, with an IQ HIGHER than the grandheathen, and probably higher than my humine brothers --OK, except for Ryan/Leash -- was NOT invited!

When MOMMY decides she wants to be my MOMMY again, and not a Yia Yia ... then we will write more ... with details :)

Farfel ... (sigh)


Farfel is too tired and annoyed to do anything :(

Look at me ... look at your dog ... look at me again!!!!

I love that commercial :) Hello everybody!!! I Farfel, the ONLY Airedale in the Village want to thank everybody for your so very nice comments :) Today is the DAY!!! MOMMY is going to have her "Boobopsy" "Boobectomy!" MOMMY is fine except for the fact that she quit smoking ELEVEN days ago ... and she is kind of TENSE!!!

Uncle Tom came here from NY to be with MOMMY -- he is sleeping in MY room. Yes, I have my own room since Joey (grrrr) moved out. I still would rather sleep with MOMMY :) MOMMY says that I -- Farfel, snore! She has even said that sometimes she thinks she is sleeping with a short, hairy, snoring man whose beard smells like mildew (and meat, garlic, treats, etc., hehehe) I say -- she should be so lucky to find a man like that ...hahahha!!

MOMMY will be coming home after her surgery!! I am glad :) She isn't supposed to wear any make-up, jewelry, or her contacts today! She says doesn't mind being an ugly, unadorned, blind woman for a day :) At least Joey (grrrr) did her hair last night!

Not to change the subject, but I am.. and that other subject is kind of boring....MOMMY won an EBAY auction!!! She never did anything like that EVER!!! For those of you who are around MOMMY'S age (humines) ...of say... 35... OK OK OK...56...hehehe You would remember this.... maybe... Years ago on the Today Show, with Dave Garroway, there was a monkey... J. Fred Muggs. Well, MOMMY had a stuffed one when she was little -- "Mugsy." MOMMY had the monkey for years.. he was very worn out from "over-loving!" ... Somehow..he disappeared. MOMMY has been looking for another monkey like him ever since Al Gore invented the Internet ...hehehe. So.. she finds J. Fred Muggs on EBAY and WON!!!! I, Farfel, the ONLY Airedale in the Village... kind of despise him... however, I have been very polite with the monkey.. so far :) MOMMY loves him, but of course, not as much as she loves me :) As soon as MOMMY gets her "stuff" together, there will be pictures :) I just thought you might have enjoyed that bit of nostalgia ...hehehe

Again... thank you all for your kind comments :) MOMMY says she wishes the world could be full of "dog" people... I am sure you all understand what she means :) Thank you all .. and.. sorry for this blog to be soooo disjointed -- it's kind of early here... and we are both .... heheh tense :)



What would you do if your MOMMY was out with a "man-friend" .....the three of us walking around a beautiful lake, the weather is beautiful, the humines are laughing... the canine needs to ....... poo.... OK.. fine.. nature calls ... the canine poos (hehehe).....

What would Farfel do:

Well, after the poo .. I would do that "leg thing" where it looks like I am wiping my feet -- after the poo ??? Know what I mean?? I would do it in such a way... that the poo goes flying towards the man-friend :) That's what I would do ... :)

(True Story) Hehehehehe

Now MOMMY is the lumpy one ...

I know I have been a terrible blogger...and more importantly, a terrible boyfriend to my Lovely Miss Fergi (sigh). There have been many reasons, too many to name, and they would just sound like excuses...but, I need to write now...I think ...

Last year, I, Farfel the ONLY Airedale in the Village,had a lump. My MOMMY started calling me "LUMPY" Rutherford (Leave it to Beaver fame). MOMMY had my lump checked, and was told by that nice Dr. Sands that Terriers were somewhat "lumpy" and she had nothing to worry about --- I still have the lump, but I am fine :)

It's MOMMY who has the lumps now. Why would we write about "lumps?" You have to know my MOMMY to understand that -- she has a brain tumor -- she named "Hector!" That might give you a clue :) Anyway, Hector seems to be fine. The new lumps are in a different place. To put this delicately ... they are in her.... uhm.....breasts (there! I said it! -- I really didn't want to say boobs, or the "T" word (teats..hehehe) Whew!

So anyway --- Since MOMMY has been in a relationship with that damn elliptical machine at the gym, and those stupid ...dumb bells ( I try to play with them but they are too heavy..ugh!), she has lost a lot of weight......Soooooo one day she was looking in the mirror and noticed just how small THEY (breasts) have gotten. She tried to lift them up, and just do ANYTHING to make them look larger..hehehe OK... she is 56 --- GRAVITY just isn't there anymore...hehehehe BUT -- as she was doing the lift ups... she found it....the LUMP!

MOMMY was sort of freaked out. MOMMY doesn't have hospitalization benefits. MOMMY'S mother -- my "Yia Yia" died from breast cancer. MOMMY was going to name the lump Christine, after her mother, but.... decided on "MOBY" that weirdo singer. Why she has to name her lumps and tumors is beyond me :) She does make me laugh though :)

OK -- so without medical benefits -- what was she going to do???? Well, there is a group here in Ohio called the Pink Ribbon Society. MOMMY called them.. and they told MOMMY not to worry -- they would take care of everything!!! And... they are :)

MOMMY went for a mammogram. Well, they saw MOBY ... plus two more on the left side and a mass on the right side. MOMMY wasn't expecting that :( Ok, I bet you're wondering what she named the other lumps --- She didn't). Today.... MOBY was aspirated, sooo no more MOBY. They are checking out MOBY... and will take care of the other two later. They were supposed to check out the mass on the other side, but.. couldn't get a good reading, or something and they have to schedule a different kind of test where they put MOMMY under anesthetic (probably to keep MOMMY quiet, and to stop her from telling jokes!) Sooooo... MOMMY and I have been kind of worried. As you know, I have three humine brothers. MOMMY doesn't like to talk to them about "lady" things.... so, I am who she talks to.... and.. I guess I will talk to you all :) In no way are we making light of breast cancer.... it's treatment, or the feelings that go with it --- I guess we are "coping!"

So other than that --- things have been typically abnormal in our lives :) MOMMY finally got a job... working at the BMV (Bureau of Motor Vehicles) .. not to be confused with the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles). Same thing! It isn't exactly the kind of job MOMMY is suited for, but.... it IS a job and it buys me my treats :) MOMMY isn't one of those mean BMV people --- she is one of the nice ones. She says it's like being in a reality show -- full of stupid people :) One gentleman asked her --- "how long are 30 day tags good for?" So badly MOMMY wanted to answer .. well, 10 minutes -- but didn't...hehehe It's a job, and it does make her laugh :)

So, that's about it ... no results or confirmation yet...we will keep you posted long as MOMMY doesn't lose the password AGAIN!

Love to all ... especially.... Lovely Miss Fergi :)
