Hope you liked Vancouver!

Tonight was Jake and Just Harry's pawrents, Joan and Jack's last night in Vancouver before they fly back to sunny Florida. The hoomans decided to go for dinner at a Sukiyaki Restaurant.

After dinner, Joan and Jack came over to visit us!!! Jack had never met us because he was at the serious place when we went to Granville Island with Joan. (mum: Jack was at the conference earlier this week, so he hadn't had the chance to meet the Aire-kids yet!)

Jack watched as I worked MY treat machine,

Then mum said it was STINKY's turn to use MY treat machine, but I wasn't done yet!! So I pawed it from behind while STINKY was eating ALL MY treats, and the treat machine fell.... (don't worry tho, I pawed it back up and took over. The treat machine was MY 10th B-Day pressie anyway!!!)

STINKY was trying to get all the attention from everyone. Here he got Jack to play ball with him,

Then he went and rubbed himself all over Joan and Jack,

Here D-Guy was stabilizing STINKY's head (he has Attention-Deficit-Hyperactive-Jaw-Disorder) while sacrificing his arm for STINKY to landshark, so Joan could actually pet him without being landsharked!

All the meanwhile, I was just being the PERFECT gurrrrrrrl, all calm and watched STINKY get all the attention.....

(mum: Jaffa is the socialite while Sunshade is more aloof until she knows the person a little better. She was perfectly happy watching the action from the sideline!)

Jack noticed how good I was, and he came to give me some much deserved attention!

I must admit, he gave the bestest throat rubs,

Bestest face rubs,

And bestest ear scratches!!!!!

Joan and Jack took a moment to look at *ahem* mum's collection,

Apparently, they have a similar collection at their home, hehe!!

Time flew by so fast, and it was time for them to leave since they had an early flight the next day. Before leaving, Joan gave mum a pressie,

LOOK! It's an Airedale porcelain pin!!

THANK YOU Joan & Jack and of course Flat Jake & Flat Just Harry for the cool pressie, and for visiting US!! We are so happy to have met you. I hope your first pawsonal encounter with Airedales was a pleasant one (just take out the landsharking, only the STINKYdale does it). We also hope that you've enjoyed your stay here in Vancouver and will come back again sometime in the future!!

Hi Sunshade
That sounds like a great visit. You can't get enough throat scratches can you?
Thank you for stopping by my blog, although it was bad luck that you visited when Gail had taken over and posted all that football stuff. I won't let it happen again!
Toodle pip!

Jake of Florida said...

We didn't see this post until just now -- it was hiding on our sidebar.

Sunshade, you were such a gracious hostess! We'd been hearing our pawrents talk about you and Stinky. They really really really liked meeting you and we were afraid that they might like you TOOOO much for our own good.

But then we came home from camp and they took one look at us and we jumped into their laps and licked their faces and we knew they could meet and fall in love with other doggies, but they'd still come home to us!!!


Wirey love to you (and Stinky and your mom and D-Guy)

Jake and Just Harry

OMD! We loooove the Aire-pin! What a nice present for your mom! We're glad Joan and Jack enjoyed their first encounter with real live Aire-kids! We're not that much different from the WFT's except we're bigger and only 2 colors! And our barks are much louder!

Good job D-guy knows how to neutralize the landshark, hehe. It looks like you had a great time with your guests Sunshade, and of course you were the pawfect hostess showing them how to work that treat machine.
