The 3irds in the Red Chair

"This is not fair! Normally we are not allowed to come near this chair, now we have to pose in it. Well, whatever, guess Tanja is the boss. She is ok though, leaves us alone when she works on her books. So let's be nice, smile guys! Well who are we, what shall we say? We are the 3irds, we team up with Duvel the publisher's dog, for naughty stuff. My name is Funny bird, I have a big mouth and a...

3birds in a dog’s bed

"Wow, this has been a tough day, Duvel. The food was all right. But walking around in the rain is nothing for a Funny old bird, like me. Beats me why you keep on sniffing those bushes. Oh well, must have something to do with your territory. I could use some rest now. Duvel, thank you so much for letting us sleep in your bed. It took you some time, to get used to us. I knew we would be friends in...

Summer-time, garden-time, tea-time, naughty-time…

"Wow, so much green and look at those beautiful flowers!" "Little bird, don't be so romantic. We prefer to have a closer look at that cake. It  looks delicious, maybe we can have some. What do you think Duvel?" "Naughty Bird, keep on dreaming. The boss told me to stay away from it. She will be back in no time and I will not take the blame if anything happens to it. She might even bring me one of...

The 3irds are back from their walkabout

"Hey Duvel, old chap! We are back, you must have missed us. We were on a walkabout." "Funnybird, I did not miss your crazy ideas, and yes, I had a nice holiday too." "This was serious business Duvel, we went back to our roots! We went to look for our brothers and sisters, on a farm in a zoo and even a pet-shop, but we could not find any birds like ourselves. We even got chased by cats and grumpy...

A naughty terrier outfit for Duvel the dog

"He birds, I need your help! They invited me to the annual meeting of the naughty terrier club. Quite an honor, I must say. Of course, I would like to attend, but they have asked me to bring an outfit. Now what is that supposed to mean? I am a terrier, not a doll?!" No problem Duvel, we will just make you look naughty! We will just be our naughty selves, do some things we are not supposed to do,...

Let’s go and play terrier on the beach!

Let’s go and play terrier on the beach!

The boss read somewhere that Irish Terriers are active dogs, but not hyperactive. Apparently we need and enjoy consistent mental and physical challenges. We are full of life, but are able to relax inside the house and can be roused to full activity level quickly. "I could have told her that, just like me. So come on, 3irds, got to get moving! We need a challenge, always on the lookout for...

Floating white mountains in the river

Floating white mountains in the river

"This is cool, white floating mountains on the river, made from ice and snow. We could play catch, or hide and seek. But I know we are not supposed to be here. Too dangerous, says the boss. They break off and drift away. She has nightmares about me floating on an ice plate. She would jump in to save me. That's nice. Must be cold though. Maybe I should behave and go back." "Duvel, come here, I...

The first snow makes you want to fly

"Snow! I love snow, cold, white and fluffy, run, dive, fly, whoops! Funny Bird, what are you doing?" "Follow me! This is magic, white and light, I feel like flying. To the lighthouse, up I go, higher and higher. "What is he doing Big Bird? You told me he can't really fly. The snow must be blinding him. Oops there he comes. Heh Funny Bird, dive in.
