Dave Morgan’s Pal achieved his UKC HRC STARTED TITLE (junior level equivalent) and our Scarlett achieved her first pass in the UKC HRC SEASONED level (senior level equivalent).  (She) was the first Airedale to get her Started title and Pal is the second.  SCARLETT is the FIRST Airedale to pass a UKC HRC SEASONED level test.

Scarlett is full sister to our Reddi:

CONGRATULATIONS on the hunt test results and thank you so very much for the stunning views of their work. This is just a sample of the two of them below:

Yearling Airedale Available–Now Placed

I am posting this as a favor to my friend who lives near Springfield, IL:
My name is Jean McCoy,  and I have Maggie, (14 month old female)… My asking price is 1,600.00. My price includes spaying.  I would like to place her in a good pet home.
Maggie is house broken to ring a bell on our door to go out, and did great without the bell in the motel while I was visiting Nancy this past weekend.
I followed a routine, and we had no accidents. Maggie has had some manners training. She likes chew toys and leaves my shoes alone. She sleeps in a crate in our bed room, and I put her in the crate when I leave the house to run errands.
I will be glad to tell you more if you think you might be interested in giving her a good home.
I have added a link to show her parents and the record we made of her birth and puppyhood while she was here:

Please contact Jean if you would like to know more….jcmccoy@wildblue.net

Introducing Allie!

Seneca Up Your Alley

Seneca Up Your Alley just celebrated her second birthday! Now that she is older than 24 months, we submitted her x-ray results and the results are in….Allie is fourth generation OFA Excellent!

Just to give you an idea of how rare that is, consider the fact that of all Airedales submitted for evaluation, only 8.7% are given a rating of Excellent (http://www.offa.org/stats_hip.html)

Keep in mind that many many Airedales are never submitted for evaluation because the ignorant breeders who work with them say that “they can tell by looking at them” that there is no problem. If you would like to see how difficult that is, try looking at these x-rays and see if you can see the problem. This webpage also describes the various ratings:  http://www.offa.org/hd_grades.html

Now repeat that performance for four generations….Yup, Allie is real special and not just for how she looks from behind!

It’s all in the family too. Her sire is CH Seneca Minnesota Razzle CDX RE AXP AJP.  Razzle is OFA Good and both his parents are OFA Excellent. Her dam is CH Seneca You Will Fancy This. Fancy is OFA Excellent and her parents are OFA Fair and OFA Excellent. If this all sounds a bit familiar, Allie’s older brother is last year’s new Champion; you can visit him here and see more photos of Allie’s family: https://smartairedales.wordpress.com/2015/03/31/new-champion-seneca-the-new-jack/

Happy New Year!

 

Are we feeling a little tipsy? From Seneca Airedales we wish you a very Happy New Year! We do have Gold girl and Teal boy, born 10/26/2015 available. They have their first three vaccinations of the puppy series completed and are VERY MERRY! We posed for you just today right here:

Current comments from the APU (Airedale Puppies United) who were born 10/26/2015 and are placed with their new forever homes include:

…Blue has now been named Watson.  Vet said he looked great, … No crying at night, sits and makes eye contact for food, happy to come and loves to play outside. Puppy classes start next week.

…I hope you had a good Christmas. We had a busy one with Red, who we

Seneca Airedales

Harley and Ellie

have named Ellie (Seneca Ready-Made Elegance). Harley  was quite thrilled to get a baby sister and my husband was overjoyed (we had talked about getting another Airedale, but he didn’t know it was coming last Monday!). He loves her. Ellie  is a bundle of energy, is eating well, playing with her toys and everything else, and trying to establish her dominance. She’s mastered ‘sit” at feeding time. It’s cute to watch Harley play with her – he’s very gentle, but lets her know in dog-talk that she isn’t the alpha around here (a hard pill for her to swallow!) She’s a great puppy. I’ve enclosed a picture of her with her big brother and will keep you posted on her progress. <Note: Harley came from us too, some years ago…)

…We are very much enjoying our new family member! Deezel, formerly known as purple, is adjusting very well. He has made it through the two nights without any accidents, and has only piddled in the house once!

Introducing the Class of December (II), 2015

… And now to introduce our four boys as individuals!

First up is Blue. He is a potential Champion and obedience competitor in the making. If anyone has an interest in dog sports, this little guy could really go places with  you! Blue has a build that hits all the points a judge would be looking for while he has a strong social desire to please and to retrieve–all very important for any type of training.

Teal is also a really nice outgoing guy like Blue with perhaps a bit more cuddle factor. He’s also extra good looking! Check out those eyes in the post bath photo!

Purple is perhaps the stockiest, more deeply chested boy and also a cuddler. I keep wanting to call him “Rocky” after the boxer because of the photo with the towel over his head–He’s a ‘contenda!’ (Note: this little guy does NOT have both testicles descended at this moment in time. That could change, but if it doesn’t, it will cost extra at the time he is neutered.)

Yellow is another sweet fellow; just likes to be the center of attention when he can!

Introducing the Class of December (I), 2015

Starting with the girls, we offer this series of photos to show their individual personalities all at 7 weeks:

This is Gold, a little girl with mostly cuddling on her mind. She is sweet and affectionate with just a smidge of doing things *her* way! (Note: she does have a tiny umbilical hernia that has already closed on its own, probably a birth injury. My vet indicates this does not result in a health concern.)

Next up, is Pink….a little bit of a princess. She is my next generation so that everybody can call to see if our puppies are all growing at the same rate and getting into the same kinds of trouble. Yes, I’m keeping Pink.

Here’s our Red ribbon girl. She’s moderately active and very affectionate but more perky. She is a very good candidate for obedience, rally, or Therapy Dog training due to her inquisitive nature and sociable nature!

I’m following up with the fourth girl, White. She’s quiet and rather calm yet still with her terrier mischief to express.

That wraps up today. Tomorrow, I will be posting the boys!

Having A BIG Week….

Yes siree BOB! Today the puppies did all of the following:

  • Got their first ever bath!
  • Got to play outside a bit after getting dry
  • Got group, bath, and individual shots taken!

Let’s just skip straight to the photos!

Bath time in the tub; followed by the girls getting pampered in spa towels (ready for our pedicure!) and below them, the boys looking like “The Right Stuff!

Then, fully dry, the APU (Airedale Puppies United) hit the field for a little practice time! Notice how they are logging some air time while others sit it out on the wooly bed…boot climbing and toy carrying are popular too!

We can still take reservations!

 

 

We Are Working Hard….

Yup, I am *so* very late to get my next posting up. But if you’ll accept some really good excuses, here’s what I’ve got so far:

  • Pedigree is researched and getting its last review for 5 generations
  • Puppies have gotten the first vaccination in their puppy series
    • Remember that this series ends with the first one-year rabies vaccination at 16 weeks and the last of the distemper combination boosters.
  • Yesterday was sunny and everybody got to go outside for the first time–YAY! They found it is a big wide world out there.
  • Together we’ve done the first conformation evaluation and we have everybody embodying the best characteristics of the breed, attractive looks, and some of each sex that can go on to be champions!

While I get some photos together, please enjoy the latest shots of daddy, Bear. Did we mention that we’re so proud of him for his win at the National Specialty in October?
