MOMMY and I are bored!!!!!!  Well, MOMMY more than me -- but -- if she is bored, then I am bored!!!! It isn't because Star, my pregnant sister, and MOMMY'S favorite girl-canine ( I could have said the B-Word, hehehe) is away at the home for unwed mothers -- it's because MOMMY isn't used to sitting at home, and not being able to do much!!

MOMMY and Joey (grrrr), visited Star and she looked wonderful and was very happy. Star is staying at her first Mommy's (Nancy Secrist -  My MOMMY doesn't know nothing about birthin' no canine babies!!!  Star was outside in a beautiful kennel, set in beautiful rustic Bath, Ohio. In another run there were lots of puppies -- MOMMY and Joey wanted ALL of them!!! REALLY???  Sometimes I think I am the ONLY sane one of the bunch!  They were also greeted by a chunky, beautiful, chocolate Lab puppy named Boson. MOMMY wanted him too!!!  MOMMY told Joey that being there with all of those puppies, and in such a beautiful setting was her idea of heaven ---- HELLO!!!  I was not there!!!  It's OK, truly I am not insecure --- just kind of annoyed!  

Here is a picture of of Star when she had her "girlish" figure -- Thank you to :

José Antonio Gómez Morante for sending MOMMY Star's picture. Jose has Star's sister Meiga -- who is a beauty :)


OK, I have to admit -- that picture makes her look --- attractive.  WE, however, have never been able to make her be still that long to get a decent picture!  I think it's been photo-shopped!  :)  

I, Farfel, the ONLY Airedale in the Village, prefer the more candid, natural shots:

Look at her ears! Hers were glued together as a child -- mine -- were not!  MOMMY does not understand the "show dog" world, but.....MOMMY would not glue any dogs --- ANYTHING!!!  She also would not remove anything (OK, certain things --- MY CAJONES!) ...especially a dogs voice  :(  MOMMY'S opinion ... (if anybody cares) ..Don't get a Terrier if you can't handle the barking --- or, don't get a dog for that matter!!! MOMMY threatens me sometimes, and I just bark louder :)  It's our game!  

We should be getting Star back in June -- we do miss her. It's nice being the only-child dog again -- except for Joey, he is still my nemesis -- but, he is also my best friend -- next to MOMMY, the trash can, the couch, my headless duck with no stuffing, an empty yogurt cup, my leash, tennis ball, and several other things!

MOMMY is doing OK in her recuperation -- still not back to work. It is amazing just how important arms are to one's daily life.  MOMMY goes weekly to get her expanders filled up -- this is to stretch the skin to make room for the Foobies!  Every time MOMMY comes home from the Plastic Surgeon -- I have to look twice --- who IS this large busted woman!!  The bigger they are expanded, the more it stretches, and the more it hurts -- preventing MOMMY from doing a lot of things with her arms -- and.. the Foobs get in the way!!!  So, MOMMY is frustrated, pissy, and annoyed because she can't do what she did before the surgery -- however -- no regrets :) 

MOMMY and I have to say, as we have said before -- we LOVE your blogs, and pictures!!  MOMMY has a lot of time -- she reads them all -- she might not comment on them, but they are read, and very much appreciated!!! MOMMY loves knowing there are humines out there who love, and feel about their babies as much as she does :)  Some people just can't understand!  So -- thank you all!!! Also, thank you for your comments -- those are also very much appreciated :)

MOMMY and I can continue writing all day -- but instead of US being bored -- you will be bored  :) We have decided to keep the TV turned OFF!!!  No more court shows, Storage Unit Wars (really?), Pregnant 16 year olds, Maury, Jerry, Hoda, Whoopee, or those HOARDERS!!!  Instead, MOMMY is going to play some mindless games on FB!!!  Maybe even go for a walk -- but --- sometimes I have a tendency to pull, and go absolutely nuts when ANYTHING gets in my line of vision!!  I would hate to pull MOMMY and one of her Foobies go bouncing down the street :)  

Have a great day!!

Farfel, the ONLY Airedale in the Village (until June!) and MOMMY!!  and, Star -- :)  We hope we hear something today about her babies....and if one has a short (but extremely gorgeous tail) MOMMY is going to take it --- :)  


  1. We have had a bring day here too. That's why it's fun to be a blogger and find out what the other pups are up to!

    I hope everything works out well with the momma & babies. You a gentleman for not using the b word!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  2. Hey Farfel,
    How great to be an only dog with your Mom home...wooHoo!!
    We just love the Dale puppies too. We go to the breeder's house to get our furs done and she usually has some puppies around. We always want to bring them all home!!

    Wyatt, Stanzie and Mom

  3. Sheesh, Farfel. You were totally gypped! You didn't get to go check out Star's home for unwed mothers! Humans... can't live with 'em, can't bite 'em...

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

  4. Farfel. Somehow we think with you around, and your MOMMY'S great perspective on life, it's hard to be bored for long around your house. (You could always invite the heathens over.) It sounds like everything is progressing (and developing ... hehehe) right on schedule. Soon life is gonna turn over a whole new page. It's YOU who seems to be providing the stability. (What a concept.)

    Keep us posted ... we seem to keep missing your posts until a few days after they show up. We wanna know when those puppies arrive and hope to hear that Star is doing GREAT! We're sure she's gonna be a great mommy.

    Jake (and you oughta hear her now ... snoring like a banshee ... Fergi)

  5. Ciao bello, Farfel!

    La mia ragazza talked to my breeder, Nancy, today and heard there are now six new Seneca Airedales as of last night! Famiglia -- magnifico!!! Congratulazioni to Star and to you, Zio Farfel!!Will your momma bring one of the puppies home with Star?????

    We hope your momma is doing well; please give her a large smoochie from I, Lucia!!

    Tanti baci!
