Showing is only a minute part of my dog’s lives and the pictures that
follow are some of my favourite snapshots taken at home. The Doraemi
Airedales live with the Alshadlie Airedales, owned and bred by Al Favell.
The puppy in the snow is Alshadlie Desert Orchid (Doraemi Mister Sandman x
Alshadlie Firebird). Leaping through the grass is Alshadlie First Edition
at the age of eight.

was ready? (Mister)

WITH LOVE FROM A LONELY DOG
I wish someone would tell me
What it is that I`ve done wrong;
And why I must be chained outside
Left alone so long.
They seemed so glad to have me
When I came here as a pup,
There were so many thing we`d do
While I was growing up.
The master said he’d train me
As a companion dog and friend,
The mistress said she’d never fear
To be alone again.
The children said they’d feed me
And brush me every day.
They’d play with me and walk me
If only I would stay.
But now the master 'hasn’t time`
The mistress says I shed,
She won’t allow me in the house
Not even to be fed.
The children never walk me
They always say 'not now`.
I do wish I could please them,
Could someone tell me how?
All I have, you see, is love.
I wish someone could explain
Just why they said they wanted mine
And left it - on a chain.
