It's Inky here. A lot of you have been asking how I am. Well, I am ok given the circumstances. Slightly going bonkers as I am in my 5th week of nothingness but all up I must give my pinkies and their friends credit...
I have just been to The Specialist again. He is a specialist in extracting money from the pinkies. He also told us that, after having seen my new xrays (yep, had to be knocked out for that one, AGAIN), it is apparent that my bones are far from healed and that I will need another 6 weeks of nothignness.
Can you imagine???
Boy, I didn't want to go through the door there. I put the party brakes on big time. Ears down, tail in.
I knew it was going to be bad news...
"The bones have not healed yet...it needs more time...confinement...rest, rest, rest"
Anyway, I am alive, I am loved and we will battle through this together...
Thank you for all your messages of support.
I would also like to issue a special Thank You to my friends Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie.
AGES ago, they gave me this lovely card...
Isn't it a beaut? It even twinkled when I got it.
I am also overdue to say Thanks to Maggie and Mitch.
They gave us the Sweet Friends Award.
Rule #1 - Copy image to your blog.
Rule #2. List 10 things that make you happy and try to do one today.
1. A Kong stuffed with dog sausage not containing dogs
3. Treatball, you push it around with your snout and out fall the treats - marvellous!
4. SCHWEINEÖHRCHEN aka pigs ears
5. swimming & mongreling on the beach (but apparently not now and not for the next 6 weeks)
6. squeaky toys
7. doing "the cat thing" (but that not right now either)
8. biting Molly in the hind leg and in general clobbering her
9. "giving one" to any pinkie that enters
10. frolicking in any body of water I come across, barking my little noggin off
Rule #3 - Tag 10 bloggers who brighten your day

Butchy (and we will never forget the bright and sparkly Snickers)
Another massive Thank You goes to all the supporters of our Airedale Rescue group.
Remember when we did a fundraiser with some fabulous bikkies and then more recently with our 2010 calendars?
Well, we've just tallied up the balance sheet and are proud to report that we have raised $557.50.
Thank you to everyone who made this possible. It will be a great resource for the next Airedale in need.
Here I am posting off a cheque to the treasury of the Airedale Club of Victoria today.
We walked at absolute snail's pace about 50m to the post box on the corner (which is ok by The Specialist). it took us about half an hour return. All I wanted to do is do the Inky Zoom, but no, the only thing zooming was those snails on the way past us... Nonetheless, I got some good sniffs in and even some peemail! Keep that delicate Airedale mind stimulated...aaahhhh....
Now onto some more serious matters.
Apparently, having a broken Inky costs a bomb.
So I would like to give ourselves another plug and point out that we have some wonderful gear available through our shop
We have some badges and magnets...
and some great bowls!!
....and lots of other merchandise including T-shirts, bags and water bottles.
So please come and have a look (and a shop)! All proceeds will go straight into my leg, or rather, straight to The Specialist (and we'd hate to see him sleep out in the streets).
Speaking of those sexy looking water and din din bowls...
THANK YOU to Max and Pekoe's mum for getting us a set for xmas!!
Food and water never tasted so good.
Lots of love,
