Hiya everyone!

The judges for the best joke contest had a few too many Beef Martinis during the Birthday Bash and have been experiencing hangovers for the past few days.
That’s why it took them a little while to get the Best Joke Winners to me.

But I’m happy they had a great time and I can now announce we have our Top 3 winners.

First Place –  With 35 Likes and 25 Comments the winner is Nancy Guillory

Nancy Guillory - 1st Place


As soon as the airedale saw the sign, he knew it was the job for him! He grabbed it off the window & went inside. The receptionist was surprised, to say the least. Seeing that he meant business, called her boss and told him there was an app…licant waiting.

The manager saw how determined the ‘dale was, so he lead him into his office. The airedale followed, still holding the sign. As soon as he was inside, he put the sign on the manager’s desk, then sat & waited.

The manager, said, “I’m sorry, but I can’t hire you. The sign says you must be able to type.”

The ‘dale jumped up on the chair in front of the typewriter & began to type a perfect letter. He took out the paper & presented it to the manager. “But, but…you must be able to use a computer, too”, the shocked manager said.

The ‘dale looked at him a moment, then went over to the computer. He jumped up in that chair & proceeded to go thru various programs and produced sample spreadsheets & database for the manager.

By this time, the manager knew he was dealing with “not just a dog”, but an airedale, and had underestimated his intelligence & special skills. But he told the ‘dale, “although you have some interesting abilities, I still can’t hire you.”

The ‘dale looked at him, then went directly to the sign & pointed w/his paw at the sentences that told about “being an equal opportunity employer”.

The manager, said, “yes, but the sign says , also, that you must be bilingual”.

The airedale looked him straight in the face, and said, “meow”.


Second Place – with 12 Likes & 4 comments  the winner is Sue Higgins Taylor

Sue Higgins Taylor - 2nd Place

So this man and his wife live in a bad neighbourhood and one day the man says to his wife “I want you to go to a pet shop and buy us a guard dog.”

So the wife goes shopping later that day and visits a pet shop. She asks the man at the counter if he has any potential guard dogs.

The man at the counter says “Well… I have this little scot…
The woman, not believing him asks for some proof.

The pet shop owner says “Karate that table!”

So the dog walks over and smashes the table into a million pieces.

“Karate that chair!”

The dog walks over to the table and smashes it into a million pieces.

The woman, thoroughly convinced, buys the dog and brings him home.

When her husband gets home from work, she shows him the dog.

“What the hell is a little dog like that going to do?” He shouts.

“He knows karate!”

“Karate my @ss!”

Congratulations to out top 3 winners!

Evie Purviance – A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around looking for valuables when a voice in the dark said, ‘Jesus knows you’re here.’
The burglar nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze.
When he heard nothing more, he shook his head and continued. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard ‘Jesus is watching you.’Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. His flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.
‘Did you say that?’ he hissed at the parrot.’Yep’, the parrot confessed, then squawked, ‘I’m just trying to warn you that he is watching you.’
The burglar relaxed. ‘Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?’
‘Moses,’ replied the bird.

If you scroll to the very first entries in this blog you will see that I arrived at Ma’s for the first time on March 8th, 2009. So we’re using this time to celebrate my second full year of freedom. Woot!!

The reason I’m using the following photo is because it was the first ever photo taken of me. The nice folks at National Mill Dog Rescue cleaned me up and took this pic for their website. It is this photo that Ma saw and fell in love with me! She actually had it on the kitchen wall for a month before I came to meet her. She was super excited!

My First Photo

OH MY DOG – I almost forgot to tell you that I got my old Facebook profile back! YIPPEE
Ma said she’s do anything to get it back and she did everything! She’s a supermom!!
I won’t reveal her secrets on how she got it back…let’s just leave it at that! ok?

So we’re celebrating my Birthday/Freedom on Facebook on March 15th. It’s a 24 hour event and everyone is welcomed. If you are on Facebook then add me Autumn Lakeland-Terrier.
There’s an Event page where everyone will drop in thoughout the day to say hi and party with us. We have a DJ and games plus contests to win REAL prizes!! WOOT!
We’re have lots of fun and I hope to see you then!!

Next news break –

This morning around 2:30 am I asked Ma if I could go onto the porch and then a while later she hear me….I made my first official GROWL…wooohooo. Ma said it was followed by almost a bark but she said it was my first growl ever and she couldn’t even see what I was trying to growl at. She was so excited!

Some early B-day pressies have arrived on my doorstep.

A blanket that looks like me..made by Sowena and Molly in UK!

It even has my name!!


I want to ask if you would please take a few moments to watch this video. It’s from the National Mill Dog Rescue Org…the folks who rescued me.
In that video you’ll see exactly what it was like for me arriving to freedom.



Lot of Lakie Lovin’ To YOU!
