Our Mad Dog and Her Wednesday Wag

Treacle of the Day!


I had been outside playing all day and Mom decided that I needed a good brush when I came in!   I was not impressed.


How does that look Mom?  Can I go and play again please?


I am getting a bit of a woolly coat at the moment especially my beard and eyebrows and Mom has threatend to get the scissors out and give me a trim!!!!!!

Happy Woofy Weekend Everyone, Stay Safe!

Lockdown Wednesday Wag!


Good Morning Wednesday Waggers I hope you are all well and social distancing.  Mom says I am doing very well social distancing sometimes but when I need a cuddle I just have to plonk myself down next to her!!!!!


Mom has been able to leave the door open to the garden so I can come and go as I please.  I love it when I can do this.  It is quite warm in the sunshine today.


Of course you have to have a tennis ball out for when anyone is passing and will throw it for me. 


“Is it biscuit time yet Mom?”


Mom and Dad are getting the garden ready to put seeds in, I have inspected this to make sure it is okay.


It is another sunny Spring day today.


Mom’s Daffies have done really well and are staying in flower a long time, the few that the squirrel left for her that is, Grr!!!!


The garden is waking up after the Winter.

Have a very happy Woofy Wednesday everyone.  Stay Safe.

Woof, Treacle xx

The Wednesday Wag.


We have had one of those days and I am really confused as Daddy and Eldest are at home as well as Mom!!!  Only Youngest has gone out to work!!!  What is happening?  I hear a lot of things about some sort of thing which might be caught and that people are staying at home but that is okay as I love it when everyone is in!!!!

Also Daddy and Eldest have been doing a lot of work at the front of our home pulling out all of Mom’s plants!!!  I don’t know what is going off.


Mom has ensured I have enough food just in case deliveries can’t happen and I have seen an extra box of Bonios in my cupboard so we should be alright if we are all at home.  I am very willing to share my bonios with my Hoomans!!!!


I am quite happy at the moment especially with everyone at home.  I hope all you doggies are keeping you and your hoomans safe and healthy.

Woof, Treacle xx

Busy Few Days.

DH and I were up very early on Thursday to get to Crufts to avoid the traffic.  Despite all the news about Coronavirus, it did not stop people turning up to show and see all the wonderful dogs.  Girlfriend’s Mom has been very busy with their two Pugs, Ralphy & Dotty, taking part in the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme.  Ralphy had done so well he had been invited to Crufts for him to show what he has learnt and to take part in his Bronze examination!  Ralphy is just over a year old and has been doing really well with his training, however Dotty has outstripped him and already on to her Silver award!!! 

Here are some pictures of the day.  Ralphy had two practice sessions and then the main examination was in the afternoon.


The test involves many aspects one of which is being still whilst being groomed and also being still whilst they are examined so that they are well behaved when they go to the vets.  Here is Ralphy with Girlfriend’s Mom being groomed.


Obviously the Stay without being held is a very important part of the course.  Here is Ralphy on his practice.


Walking to lead without being distracted by other dogs, people etc.


The picture above is the actual test and one of the main parts is the stay from a distance for one minute.  This was Ralphy’s most challenging part but he sailed through with flying colours.


All the dogs who took their Bronze exam.  Three did not pass due to them moving at the stay. 


Ralphy passed and is now onto his Silver course!  Getting his Certificate and rosette.


Team Picture!

Ralphy and Girlfriend with his Rosettes.  Well Done Ralphy!!!!

In between times DH and I got to have a look around the Halls, there were lots of people there.  Of course we had to visit the Discover Dogs area and see the best dogs ever booth.


When you have had a particular breed for years you always feel that they are the best dogs ever!!!!  As much as we saw other breeds at the show and got to see the dogs and talk to their owners we really don’t think that we would ever not have an Airedale!!!! 


This is Ami who was showing later in the day but was on the Discover Dogs stand for a while.  She was lovely but a little tired with all the people coming to talk to her!!!

We bought some treats for Treacle from her Food supplier, Burns, but there was not much else that we wanted to get her.  It was a good day and lovely to see Ralphy do so well.  We got there at 6.30am and left about 4.00pm before the rush to get out and did okay.  Friday we had a business meeting which took all day and got home around 8.00pm, so two very long days.

The weekend DH was commentating on Saturday evening but we managed to get some errands done and Sunday the weather was good so we got some gardening done too!!!  I will show you pictures of that tomorrow. 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and will have a good week. 

Hugs, Susie xx

Mom & Dad are off to Crufts tomorrow.  Crufts is one of the longest running dog shows and began in 1886 by Charles Cruft who was a general manager for a dog biscuit manufacturer.  He used to travel around Britain and Europe to dog shows with his products and found a need for a higher level of dog show.  The first show in 1886 was just for Terriers but by 1891 all breeds of dogs competed.

I can’t go as only dogs who are invited can go but Girlfriend’s dog, Ralphy the Pug, is going with his puppy group, so they are all going to see him and the rest of the day.  Mom says it should be fun as she has always wanted to go.

Of course if I was going I would win!!!!!


I don’t mind as Eldest is at home looking after me and we have lots of fun when he does.  Mom says she will get lots of pictures to show you all.

She has been busy all day working and getting home jobs done as she will be out all day tomorrow and is staying away tomorrow night with Dad as they are at a business meeting on Friday so won’t be back until the evening.  It has been a bit of an upside down week so far!!!!! 

I hope you are having a very Woofy Wednesday.

Here I am back from the Spa!!!  It was raining when we came out so Mom and I got wet, again!!!!!!!!  Mom says I smell so much better (!) and look a lot better than I did before.  My ladies did not cut me too short on the basis that it could still be cold but Mom says it will be easier to brush me now!!!


Here is a picture of the top of my head!


Side view of my Airecut.


Full face view, I haven’t managed to tame my beard just yet!!!!


Mom always washes all my beds, towel, quilted mats and my collar so everything is fresh and clean as well as me!!!!


So I have to lie on my quilt inner until they are clean and dry!!!!

I hope you are having a very Woofy Wednesday.

Well I did have a bit of snow to play in this week but it has all gone now:(

Mom and Dad bought me some great things from Mungo & Maud when they were away and they also ordered me a new bowl.


My very good friend Molly has a raised bowl so Mom and Dad thought it would be a good idea for me too. It has taken a while to get used to it but I now think it is a great idea!


Thank you Mom & Dad!

Mom has also booked me in next week for a spa day as she says I am getting a little bit wooly.  However it will probably be freezing cold as it always seems to happen when I have an Airecut in winter!!!!!!!


Here I am waiting for Eldest to get up this morning so he can come and play!  It is great having him home at the moment and he also has a very big new bed for me to lie on it is great!!!!!

Happy Woofy Wednesday everybuddy.
