They Wonder Where Their People Is…..

Spring has sprung

The grass is riz

Yet they wonder where their people is…..

Blue Ribbon Baby Boy and White Ribbon Baby Boy – above – were the undeserved targets of last minute cancellations and their people never saw or came for them. These two most deserving of sweet boys really are waiting somewhat patiently for YOU to call.

Born in the litter of January 14th, 2017, you can see the happy puppyhood they shared in the previous posts since that date. Their littermates are all over the country with two in California and Pennsylvania, one each in Colorado, Ohio, and Texas!

If one of our two available boys could put a SPRING in your step, give us a comment below or call: 330-666-2004

We will provide our excellent puppy portfolio that includes a 5 generation pedigree, health care record to date, 8 pages of info and recommendations, and a four pound bag of Best Breed Puppy Food with a three day starter of Nu-Vet to fulfill their nutritional needs.

April 21, 2017 – Update – Our two boys, now named Henry and Bernie, have found their people and we hear great reports! We hope to have a summer litter; just send a note and we can help you with more information….


The Puppies of Spring, 2018

The long awaited report of puppies at Seneca Airedales is finally here!


First, expected on Valentine’s Day, but born just one day later on February 15th, we introduce the puppies from Bruno and Verity. Learn more about the parents by clicking on their names…..

The sire of this litter, Seneca Handsome King (OFA AT-5684 Good), is himself sired by a German import with obedience/performance titles and we are very excited about him! His mother is our own Fancy and this is the first time Bruno has been the father of a litter.  You can read more about Fancy and find a video of Bruno as a year old puppy.


Verity preparing the layette.

We prepared a safe secure place well in advance. Verity had a bath and a trim to get ready too.

Seneca Ariana Verity (OFA Excellent) spent her Valentine’s Day preparing a nest for her puppies. We enjoyed providing her with plenty of newspapers for shredding.


Verity welcomes the first puppy

Then, at 5 am on February 15th, we decided to have puppies! She’s so happy to see the first little guy–look closely, he’s there….

5:15 am Male        BLUE          11.1 oz

8:11 am Female   PINK            12.5 oz

10:55 am Female SEAFOAM  11.7 oz

12:05 pm Male     RED               7.5 oz

Poor little Red didn’t survive long even with close supervision. I still grieve for him and what might have been. I set a schedule of checking them all day which makes me so glad that I can work from home. During the night, I was checking them at 12 Midnight, 2 am, 4 am, and 7 am. Sleep was a bit of a luxury that I could go short on for their sake.



Seneca Ariana Merci….waiting….

Next, waiting for the big day….then born with just a little excitement as we ran to the well known Animal Clinic Northview, where we had a C-section performed. We introduce the puppies from Euro and Merci. Learn more about the parents by clicking on their names or links…..

The sire of this litter, UCD, URO1 Dollar von Erikson PCD, CD, TD, VCD1, NJP, NAP, NFP, JH, SHF, JHR, BH, AD, IPO2, RATO, RL2 , is a German import with obedience/performance titles and OFA AT-5512 Good. He and his owner/trainer Linda Sorak of IL, are perhaps just a bit in the way of overachievers! More training titles are on the way since you just can’t keep a good dog on the couch!

If you’d like to do more research, here are some videos of Euro: First in his IPO and IPO Revieren practice, then in AKC Obedience Novice class.

Arriving on the due date, February 20, the puppies follow, in no particular order due to the C-section:


One day old-2/20/2018 EuroxMerci

7:45 am  female  PINK    13.0 oz

female  GOLD  12.6 oz

male      BLUE   13.1 oz

male      RED     11.9 oz

Retirement For Jack

Jack is a very good boy and he is ready for his very own house and people.

You can look up all kinds of history on Jack from when he was little with a tiny green ribbon all the way up to the present. Here’s his early history, his show career, and a little info on his brother.  Jack is blessed with an extremely red and black coat and low maintenance wiry texture.

Here’s some photos taken just this week in the snow! One question we get is Why? Well, we have five Airedales and would like to travel more in the future. If we can find the right situation for Jack while getting all the undivided attention, I think that he’ll do fabulously! He’s great now with getting a five-way split in my attention.

Seneca Airedales are located at 1814 North Revere Rd, Akron, OH 44333. For more information, please direct your inquiries to our email: or by phone: 330-666-2004. Our next puppies will be born in February, 2018.




Closing out 2017–For The Record

These puppies are fully placed but I wanted to put up the photos for the record.  Born on July 27, 2017 from CH Seneca The New Jack ex Seneca Ready to Appeal. “Reddi” had turned six years old on May 1st, just before conception of this litter. I retire my dogs in their sixth year from breeding, so we knew this would be her last litter.

We came up on the Three Week Birthday and had so much fun with the new foods and wading through the feeding pan that the next big event was the first bath and dry:


Then they did SO well and got SO big, we did the second bath at 7 weeks!

So, here are the photos of our individual puppies, born July 27th, from the parents:


Here are the three boys:  Blue, Purple, and Gold

Now for the girls: Pink, Yellow, Red, Green, Teal, Orange

When puppies get older, we just love to see how they are doing! Here’s little Orange girl going shopping for her very own stuff! Also Little Blue boy getting ready for his flight to California!

Celebrating the Fourth with a Puppy Picnic!

The Nine at Three Weeks Having a Picnic Puppy Style! Six Boys and Three Girls are growing up beautiful.


Airedale Puppies at Three Weeks

This video has had a slow motion filter applied so that the puppies are eating at half speed from what they actually were…..SEE VIDEO:

Before that at Two Weeks, they were playing at taking a Road Trip using a cardboard box….Airedales have GREAT imaginations!


Eyes just opened! Just taking a look around for the very first time…


Airedale puppies outgrowing their box that we use when when changing the papers and cleaning up! We are approaching max cuteness critical mass!







New Arrivals June 8th!

If you have been following along our posts, you are sure to have seen a little bit about Jack, now a proud daddy: JACK The lovely mama is VERITY.  You can see them and read all about the family history!

Now that we have been properly introduced, we can talk about the new arrivals! I had been watching Verity closely all through Tuesday, when I gave her a bath, and Wednesday even though she was technically due on Friday….try telling an expectant mother when to follow a schedule! Verity has also not been eating well and was too thin in my opinion, so I was worried and trying to tempt her to eat more with quite a wide variety of good stuff.

Letters From Home

From our little Purple puppy born 11/16/2016 from Can CH Seneca Brave To The Max CD (OFA Good) and Seneca Up Your Alley (OFA Excellent)

Dear Mom,

I have come a long way since taking my first steps outside. On the drive back to Kentucky, those silly people thought they could keep me in a basket in the backseat. I taught them that I belonged in their lap. I was good; I did not bite, and I walked properly on the leash at every rest area, leaving my mark at every stop.

img_2711I did not complain until we were 15 minutes from home. It was a long drive after all. It was worth it because now I have a food bowl that is all my own. I don’t have to fight with seven brothers and sisters.

That silly woman that held me most of the way home, slept on the floor next to me on the first night. I was a little homesick after all. I like my new digs. I sleep in a crate next to their bed. I only wake them up once a night to go potty. The big guy gets up early to go to work, and he takes me out for a walk to take care of my business.img_2719

The silly Woman takes care of me most days. She feeds me breakfast, and then takes me out and tries to train me to sit. I let her think that it’s working …. only for a little while 😉
We then play for a while. I go to sleep, and let her go see her horse or run errands.

I have been to visit the veterinary. They cut my nails and told me that I weigh nine pounds. Of course they said I was perfect in every other way. I have to go back on 2/1 to get shoots. I don’t like the sound of that, but I’ll be brave like I’ve been bred to do.

img_2722I’ll try to write when I can. They keep having strange people come over to the house, or they take me to places and I pretend to be good. They told me that I  have to start going to school in February.

I miss you guys, but I like it here. I just wish it would quit raining.

Love, Ziggy
