Earthdogin' and Talley

Hello ta all......

This was the weekend for the earthdog tests at Woodside near Donegal, Pa. and all of us and Gram and Pap headed out in the car ta get there....

We always have ta pass thru the city ta get to the Pa. turnpike and everytime Gram gets on the Veterans Bridge she gets mad cause she doesn't have her camera ready ...and the view is pretty spectacular 'n so this time she had it ready....but we were goin' pretty fast so the only picture she liked is this one...that sloped building is the Convention center and that is the Allegheny River.
Click on any of the pictures for a larger view.....
Woodside is partway down a hill but it is still up pretty high and the view is wonderful. Ya can see some of the shelters here of the earthdog participants and the hills beyond.
I met my new girlfriend again...'n I got 'er name wrong last time...she is Talley, not Callie ('n i hope I spelled it right Linda)...but it was an honest mistake cause Linda did say earlier she was goin' ta maybe change it but didn't.....LOOK and Talley sharin' a little kiss.....

Me, Dewey, doin' the play bow with Talley.

'n me tryin' ta get a little sniff in before 'er Mom could stop me...hehehe....her Mom didn't have ta stop me....cause Talley did.....grrrrr....
'n here we are really tryin' out a kiss...nose ta nose....Dewey Dewster and Talley......two terriers in love......ooooowwww ain't it grand?????
See that????? That's Gram, My Mom and the Earthdog judge after Mom won a ribbon fer the first leg of her Junior Earthdog on Saturday......right in the tunnel...reached the judge in 13 seconds....barked like a nut....worked the rats fer 60 seconds...didn't even want outta the tunnel cause she wanted those rats bad......
See that????? That's all the ribbons my Mom won over Saturday and Sunday.....she got her Junior Earthdog Title......Horray fer Mom!!!!!
See that?????? That's Dewey Dewster with egg on my face cause I didn't do anything on Saturday and Sunday....nothin' ya hear that nothin'.....on Sunday I didn't even want ta go in the tunnel at all....I wanted Gram ta pick me up.....never left 'er side at siree...non participatin' Dewey is what I'm earthdog title fer me......

And the worst part was that then Talley didn't want ta go out with me anymore....can ya believe that ????? I guess I'm gonna have ta start again from scratch ta make 'er acquaintance again next year....see if I can impress 'er with my charms and try ta do earthdog again....woe is me....woe is me......Dewey Dewster earthdog failure......

This is Dewey Dewster, egg face...signin' off.....on earthdog......

Dewey how could Tallie not want to go out with YOU???? You are so handsome and friendly and and pawsome.
Even though I am of the female gender I will admit that sometimes girls are just fickle.
That egg in your face looks good. Did you get to eat it?


Petey said...

Asta Marie,

Congratulations on your title and all those well-deserved ribbons! You look as beautiful as any Olympian on the winner's platform.

Apparently Dewey didn't inherit your fine earth dog OR dating skills, huh? (Hehehehehe! Sorry Dewey, you've been giving me such a hard time, I couldn't help myself!)

Well done, Asta Marie!

Your pal,


Koobuss said...

That is fantastic!! Congratulations Asta Marie!! Excellent job! You should be very proud of yourself. You have almost as many medals as Michael Phelps. Way to go!!

Poor Dewey. Talley is very cute and it looks as though she liked you at first, Dewey. Did you do something to upset her, like sniffing? Or, do you think that she is mad because your mother won a lot of medals and you didn't? Maybe by the time that she sees you again a whole year from now she won't be mad at you any more and you can have some fun together. If not, there are a lot of fish in the sea, I mean dogs in the contest, and I'm sure that you will find someone who likes you. After all, Dewey, you are very handsome.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Asta said...

I'm confoosed..I thought Koobie was youw giwlfwiend???
Anyway, congwatulations AstaMawie!!!way to go !!!
smoochie kisses

Why do you get an egg on your head for not doing anything? I mean...why didn't you at least eat the egg if it's going to be there anyways?

Mmmmmm egg...

Noah the Airedale said...

Wow hooray Asta Marie, well done and look at all those ribbons. Good stuff!!!


Chef said...

Dewey, eggs can be a whole lot better than ribbons sometimes. You can't eat ribbons! Maybe Tallie was upset because you didn't share your egg with her.

Actually, you did beautifully, Asta-Marie. Well-done!!


P.S. About the videos. Mama uploads them to her files directly from her camera. Then she posts them to the blog by clicking on the video icon when she's composing and it downloads. Hope it works. xox

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Yo Dewster...egg?? MMMMMMMM! We'd rather have ours hard boiled, but we'll take em anyway!!

RATS...we smell da Burgh??? Come on Dewster..fess up...are ya in love with one of those rats??? OR ARE THEY PAWSOME POKER PLAYERS??? Rumor has it a pawty is in order...just a quiet, Stan and Lac?? We'll muzzle Lacie...send your mom off to do a little riverboat gambling...she'd eat the ratty players....I have some beer. Let us know....


Eric said...

Dewey my pal. Eat the egg and don't worry. Talley probably put you off the rats by inviting you to chase her instead didn't she? You are just being too gentlemanly to say so..Who need ribbons anyway? Lady dogs look much better with ribbons anyways so just as well your Mom won them all. Isn't she pawsitively brilliant? Bet you were wagging proud of her. I think she could make herself a bootiful rosette hat to wear for her next date. . . .now go find a nice rasher or two of bacon to go with your fried egg.... yummy..

Wags, ERic x

Junior Earthdog for Ms. Asta Marie? The very same lady who went to a ballgame with me? The lovely lady who looked so elegant in her flowered chapeau?

What a versatile and alluring wire you are!!!No wonder I am so smitten.



Maggie and Mitch said...

Talley is sure a cutie! You make a handsome couple Dewey!
Congratulations to Asta Marie! That's awesome!
That egg looks pretty funny on your face! hehehehe

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Joe Stains said...

Well Egg just happens to be one of my most favorite foods on the whole earth so I don't know what the problem is. Clearly you were just done and wanted to rest :)

Rudy said...

Aww man, Dewster, you don't mess with the ladies BEFORE you go in the tunnel, it's AFTERwards! It's the old baseball thing, think about the game... (or was that from D*** Yankees the Broadway show?) Now your Mom sounds like my kind of gal! If she didn't have a boyfriend before, I could really go for her. I'm sorry I missed all that fun. The view is very awesome, Mom and Dennis used to camp out but the thunderstorms they had were almost too much for our tent to handle!

I'll have to write on my blog how I did this weekend... I too got some egg on my face the second day of the agility trials so don't feel so all alone..

(congrats to Mom!)

Lorenza said...

Hi, friends!
Congratulations! Good job!
Those are lots of beautiful ribbons!
Don't feel bad Dewey! those days happen!
Kisses and hugs

Pacco de Mongrel said...

hope that the next trial u will show ur human your true talent

Oorvi said...


You and Tallie looks really cute together. I think you are quite a couple and I'm sure Tallie will realize this sooner or later! I don't think that your performance at the Earthdog competition would influence her decision to go out with you:)Don't worry!

I am glad that Asta Marie won all those beautiful ribbons. I guess you are a bit like me - I wouldn't leave Cameo's side for getting into a tunnel, either! And I am sure your mom would be glad to share a few tips with you.

Licks n Wags,

Oorvi said...

"You and Tallie looks really cute together."

Can you believe it?! You and Tallie are one now...thanks to my typo!

Mercury's asked me to confirm whether you like the flowers or should she put the cats back? (Grrr!) And I wanted to tell you that the pawlimpics picture (you and your mom) is fantastic:)

At Work category results are expected today...I have butterflies in my stomach (No, I didn't eat them.)


Abby said...

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Hi Dewey!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love the photos of you and Tallie! How come she doesn't want to go out with you anymore? You're so adorable and sweet!

Congrats to your Mom for winning all those pawsome ribbons for her Earthdog trials! She sure can work those rats! *grins*


William Tell said...

Tallie is quite a cutie, I can see why you like her. Was she playing hard to get at first?

Don't worry about not participating this year. You're still young, and with Mom to teach you how it's done, you'll be earthdoggin' in no time at all. Just practice your hole diggin' in the meantime.

Happy Tails,
William Tell
