My name is Huston and this is my sister Savanna. We are both Airedales. In case you don't know about us, we are the largest of the terrier breed and are known as "King of the Terriers." We all look the same. We are black and tan - black backs and tan legs. We are smart, very loyal, and we like adventures. We are always very busy because there are so many interesting things to do.
It's a great day to be at the PARK! It's one of our favorite places to go. We have lots of friends to play with and there are lots of good smells, fun places to check out, and new things to discover. We see deer, bunnies, squirrels, and bluebirds. I like to take my time to sniff and explore and Savanna loves to scoot around and chase squirrels. In fact I think she lives for squirrels. She will sit under a tree for a very long time hoping a squirrel may come along. If she sees a squirrel in a tree she likes to check out the squirrel very carefully. There is a section of the park that is along the water. This is where we see lots of different animals like geese, ducks, and a beautiful swan.
We love car rides. It's fun to stick our heads out of the windows and catch all those good smells whizzing by. Some car rides are very long like when we go on vacation. Sometimes they are short when we go to nearby towns along the Delaware River in Pennsylvania. We enjoy going to these little river towns. They are always filled with lots of people walking around and sometimes we see other doggies. We have even walked across the bridge from Pennsylvania to New Jersey. As we walk we can look down and see the Delaware River.
The other place that we go to often is the Vet Store. We call it the Vet Store because we can shop and see our vet and other friends at the same time. We really like going to the Vet Store because everyone is so nice to us. They make us feel better if we are sick. We even know how to walk onto the scale to get weighed. Mummy always makes sure we go for our regular check-ups.
We really like delivery men. We especially like the postman. They drive trucks - some trucks are big and some are small, but we have learned that it doesn't really matter about the size of the truck. The delivery men know we are very friendly. They like us, and usually have treats for us.
When I was about a year old Mummy took me for special training to become a therapy dog. I visit sick people in their homes and other places. They look forward to seeing me and I cheer them up. It makes me feel good, too!
Savanna and I are good buddies and we watch out for each other – just like a brother and sister should. We have a lot of adventures together: just like I'm sure you do. Our Mummy has helped us write our stories so you can hear about them. We hope you'll think our adventures are pretty fun and awesome. I bet you have stories just like ours – stories that are just fun or even tell you a little something about YOU! We can't wait for you to read more about us.
