Good Morning All,

And welcome to Wheely Wednesday. First we think we might better explain about the "cow situation". Mom and Dad left to go on thei
r trip with friends (who picked the "no dog" place) on Saturday morning. Our dogsitter, Miss Donna, came to check on us that afternoon and then again in the evening. When she came for the evening check, there was a cow in the yard and the gate was open. We didn't think too much about it because our friend, Freddie, helps us check on the cows and we thought he might have forgotten to close the gate. Donna closed it. When she came back Sunday morning and afternoon, all was well, but when she came back on Sunday evening, there were 12 cattle in the yard and the gate was open again. This really concerned Mom and Dad so they decided to cut the trip short and come home. It would devastate them if someone broke into our house and hurt or stole one of us.

Mom, Dad and their friends did get
to spend one day antiquing though.
The first place they went to was called
School House Antiques.
It is a huge old school house that
is full of wonderful antiques.
When they got there,
it was still closed.

In a few minutes,
a nice man opened the door
and they went in.
The first thing Mom saw
was this big wheelie.
It was as big as a
full grown Scottie!!
She thought it would be
nice to push it around for a tour.
(but of course she couldn't do that)
Check out this lovely pillow!

They saw a myriad of items
and even a dog who slightly resembled Tank
followed Mom around.

There were several Airedale figurines,
but this was Mom's favorite
because it looks so regal

And this is one of the pieces
that came home to us.
Even though it's a tie rack,
we think it will end up in the kitchen.
Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Oh my goodness no wonder your mum and dad were worried. They would be sooo devestated if anything did happen.

I love all those old things.. So sweet. My mum always looks in those places too.

Love the tie rack. It would look so sweet in the kitchen, perhaps for tea towels..

Love GJ x

I'm thinking the tie rack would make a nice leash holder. We have bunches of leashes and that would keep them sorted and handy. However, the pillow would have had to come home with's PINK and it has a SCOTTIE and I love needle work of all kinds.

What a strange thing to have cows in the yard - I don't blame you parents for coming home early to protect you from intruders! But it does look like they found some cool stuff! Love the wheelie - wheeee! But the tie rack is cool and could be used for all kinds of stuff!
Hugs xo,

Spooky business with the gate getting open. I am glad your mom and dad came home early. At least they got to stop at the cool dog stuff store.

How weird with the gate. (Are you sure that one of you guys didn't open the gate just to get your Mom and Dad home sooner? I'm just asking because it's something I would do...) Glad that your Mom and Dad has some fun shopping time before they came and rescued you!

*kissey face*

I am so glad all is well now. I enjoyed the pictures but more importantly did you get any presents? My Mom wants to know what Wheely Wednesday is? I am so tired of her laziness and giving in to Wordless Wednesday, I need something new for her.

Thanks licks and sniffs, Sasha

Our momma says that it is a good thing she didn't go to any of those antique shops because she'd be broke and we can't have that happen because she needs her money for our treats☺

Hey - that looks like one of my long lost cousins... I hope he didn't bother you too much while you were shopping.

Miss Jean said...

I have some scotty tie racks but not that one! Oh, goodness!! And that pillow! It's pink! Did it make it home with you?

Maggie and Mitch said...

What great finds and how nice that your mom and dad got to shop the whole store all by themselves with no other customers! We just love the regal Airedale!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
