Both those pictures are beautiful and so is the dog.

I like the warmth in the colour version.

Thank you Longers.  Murphy is indeed a beautiful dog, he is motivated, hard working and a pleasure to be around.  A dog that never says NO.

Those are lovely pictures and he looks like a great dog, Annie.

Cam came to spend Xmas at Bognor and 'tolerated' the family dog Bernie, another rescue (who thought she was just great and wanted to be her friend; the feeling was not quite mutual). The photos are no good really, but give a flavour of her first Xmas with me:

I'll pretend not to notice that filthy blackguard next to me, because someone's given us each a treat.



The wind on the beach has stuck my tongue to my nose!



Don't even think about trying to chase me, old-timer! (I know it's blurred, but she was so joyful)



Tiring business, this running around on the beach like a nutter

This is one of  my little Schnauzers, Muffin, when she was a pupster  :)



And the lovely (recently late  :'() Airedale, Bramble. Here she is, having come third in nicest old biddy contest  :)



And one of Lucy, the Schnauzer, for good measure

Brilliant.
I love Airedales. I hope you're not missing her too much.
When I win the lottery, I'll be getting another dog to replace my still missed Westie.

An Airedale  is no 1 on my list of possible dogs to get this autumn.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Thanks Chocolate bike - Bramble she was 15 and had given us so many lovely memories (she could be a holy terror, of course, like all terriers) and we miss her terribly.

The breed is also top of my list if we have another dog, pcolbeck  :)

I also fancied an Border Collie (I have know a couple of lovely ones) but was advised not to get one as there is a high chance that unless you walk them several hours a day and give them lots of wok to do they can go a bit loopy. The ones I have known were the exceptions that proved the rule it seems. Also I like Irish Terriers but its seems that they can be very aggressive with other dogs and pets (we have a cat and free range chickens) and are much more of a handful than Airedale's. So from my three top dogs it looks like its going to be a big fluffy chap.

The Airedale also has a bit of a 'reputation' with other dogs, though, especially, I think, the males.  Bramble could be a beast if she took a dislike to something (she was, though, lovely with the cats and the other smaller dogs in the household). I think with any large terrier type, early socialising, a firm hand and, above all,  consistent handling is a must.

Having owned a number of breeds (including a couple of border collies), the Airedale was by far the most unruly, bolshie, opinionated, arrogant, hard headed and impossible of them all. But, at the same time, the most loving, amusing, bright, fun and lovable of them all too -I would have another tomorrow (but probably won't as they wouldn't be Bramble  :().

My dog's half border collie. He's brilliant, but you mustn't let him get bored, and excercise can be a problem.
To wear him out, I use this:
Cycling lead for dogs
But just a good walk off the lead is nearly as good.

My mate has one of those for his lab. It pulls the bike at a ridiculous speed.

 ;D I'm repeating myself, but that's such a good photo. I especially like the little fangs on dog 1.

I wasn't sure whether they were fangs or whether it had a Hitler moustache...  ;) ;D

I still reckon the one at the back has his air brakes fully deployed, and is coming in for a landing. ;D
Actually, it is rocket science.

Morphy is confused.

He has just acquired a ball, which he found in the stream. Balls, as every dog knows, are prized objects to be guarded with one's life. If they are special balls, which one has found all on one's own without the boss's help, then nothing may be allowed to part one from one's newest treasure.

However, as every dog knows, liver cake is the Best Thing On The Planet.

What is a dog to do when presented with the problem of a special ball in one's mouth at the same time as a piece of liver cake balanced on one's nose?
