wirey funballs

hi every bloggie!

You won't believe this! Get this! I went to a wire fox terrier convention this weekend. Seeing I'm part terrier and crackah, I was invited to join the honorable cracker A team- Agatha and Archie along with wannabees -all the way from Colorado- the two special wires- Fergi and Jake! Can you believe it!

Please read disclaimer before we proceed- to me WFT look very similar so if I misname one, it's not on purpose. You guys & gals confuse with me both having beards and eyebrows.

Of course, the A team being Boston born hosted the tour. Where else would we go than the Arboretum! I was excited to go b/c I've never been there either. It's an amazing place- check out the website. Tahdah I made it!
I definitely wanted a foto but getting a picture of FOUR wire fox terriers is like corralling cats. I did it! Here they are about to begin our walkies! Half of PL2 with Agatha, PL1 with Archie, Nina with Jake and Moma with Fergi
PL1 being a smarty pants professor gave us a talking tour... he knows everything. I wonder how he keeps all that information in his head? We got history lessons, beetle lessons, tree lessons... I can go on but I wanna keep walking.
Then Jake couldn't believe his eyes!
Agatha went crackah and started digging and digging for NO REASON at all! I guess she was giving lessons on being a true terrier. Jake stared in disbelief!

Archie and I decided to keep moving and climbed to the top of the hill.
It was a spectacular view of the Blue Hills! WHOOOOOooo! Yoleihehoooo!
After we walked this section of the Arboretum, we drove to another part. I told you the place was huge. The humans took a brief break to report a beetle they found to the visitor center- hoping it wasn't the Japanese Beetle- whew it wasn't. Moma and Jake and Fergi enjoying the summer breeze waiting for the news.
While we waited Jake pulls out his froggie! Yep how did he know I love frogs! Frog on Dude!
So I'm minding my own business and look what happens. Archie starts licking me -getting all fresh! Ummm ahem I AM not about that dude! Weird!
Finally we hit water. The A team wanted to show us this neat trick. They water ski with PL1. Look they are getting set up! Ready PL1?
Hold tight! Weeeeee! Weeeee!
Full wire fox terrier throttle!
Fergi thought it was fun, she went water skiing too!

After that refreshing dip, we took a jaunt in the field. Fergi felt so good she did zoomies but with a hop- Justlike a rabbit... Lil bunny foo foos! Real fast. Almost ... crackah dog like. I'm so proud. Lookie!

We were having so much fun I had to take another group foto. Here's take one.
And take two.
And more takes, ha ha I think probably six takes. Getting terriers to look at the camera is mission impossible. Then I saw the A team in a huddle talking to their PL2. What are they up to now? More tricks? Seems they were hungry so we left to set up a picnic! Good idea A team.
The beans getting their feedbags on!
Yummy I love cookies too! droolies droolies! You know who sat under the table like a troll waiting for one to drop. Yep Miss Agatha the Wicked.
And as the saying goes.. all good things must come to an end. I followed the A team out to the pike and headed back to the 495 corridor. I had a super funballs time! It's great meeting up with our dog blog pals! Thanks for coming Jake and Fergi! You are two special friends of mine... you too A team.

I did manage to stream our picnic live- go to norwood tv ( or click play below- it is 20 mins long) to join in our picnic fun. If you watch long enough, you may have some good material on that Miss Agatha.. She was not always a lady. Just an FYI for that holy terrier crew


  1. I am not certain you should have posted any footage of Miss Agatha acting out. You might be hearing from her lawyer.

    That was a total terrier whacky time. The water skiing! So that is how the PL's stay in shape. And Miss Fergi is a regular Esther Williams. Swish swish.


  2. Oh wow, what a great day out. The weather looked great. Bet that water was nice to swim in.
    Love love love the photos.

    Bruce the cat:)

  5. Wowzers! How could you stand all that fun? I don't think it was possible for the day to get any better!


  6. You're the man, Norwood! Hanging with FOUR wire fox terriers takes a lot of courage!

    Sam and Pippen

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  12. Looks like you had another great adventure my friend.

  13. H hAAAA dude! Wicked wiry photo's! But how could they not be. Yep you know Norwood if you grew a beard you would look a lot more foxy, not that your aren't foxy just not fully wired though you are of course an honary one.

    Those four cousins of mine really know how to enjoy themselves what with the syncro swimming, digging and sweetie Fergie bunny hopping.Awwww. Now that must of been a sight to see. You are the biz Norwood recording all the action for us to enjoy. Now gotta run. Watch my twinnie it action at the picnic.

    Wiry loves to ya Eric xxx

  14. How cool that you got to go! We think craker dogs are the best :)

    Don't forget, we've moved to http://dogisgodinreverse.com

  15. Wow - posting pictures of those cookies is so unfair. Momma and I both are droolin'

    woof - Tucker

  16. YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO EDIT OUT THAT PART NORWOOD( the part where I am under the table and perhaps maybe just for ONE SECOND snap a little at you ONLY because I THOUGHT YOU WERE IN TROUBLE and I uhhhh had to ACT QUICKLY to save you from being attacked from behind and then I uhhhhh SNAPPED....) Listen I am still exhausted.... Archie has gone out to get a bell to be like you... He said he wasn't kissing you just telling you a joke.... Lets do it again!! love and kisses A+A

  17. ROFL! I was wondering what Agatha would have to say. Nice knowing you Norwood! ;)

  18. Those memories are going to last a lifetime! We had a GREAT time with you and the A Team and we are soooo glad you were able to join us. Norwood. You are our inspiration. YOU are the one encouraging us to "come out" and let out the crackers cooped up inside of us. It was that Pack Behavior (and peer encouragement) that helped Fergi to run and prance and hop like she did. You know, don't you, that that was a big first for her?! Anyway. It was great fun. And Moma keeps saying that she wishes she could run her hand through that amazing coat of yours. Thanks so much for joining the pack. We'll always remember it, and you, with a big grin and tail wags.

    Love ya
    Jake (and Fergi and the people)

  19. Gosh we would have loved to be there and see all our friends! Damn...

  20. What a fun day for you all, how cool to meet up with your blog pals like that.

    Hey Norwood you are a TV star, we watched some of the live feed. Our human says she loves your mums accent! :)

    Have a great week!

  21. What excellent shots. Haven't watched the long video yet though. Looks like the WFTs are coming along nicely in their crackerness!!

    BTW,I bought you a frog in Spokane yesterday and when I got home guess who found it and started playing with it? Yes, Hootie broke into it and chewed off the tags. Sorry about that. I got it from him before he slobbered on it toooo much though. Email me (cassiejo@juno.com) your mailing address please!

  22. Wow, what a great day to spend with friends!

  23. I would like to exchange links with your site norwoodunleashed.blogspot.com
    Is this possible?
