New Puppies born 10/26/2015! Reservations suggested!

The puppies came MONDAY! I really expected them to arrive Tuesday or Wednesday and had my schedule cleared for them then. But Reddi did warn me first with skipping her breakfast on Sunday. As I wasn’t expecting them quite so soon, I mixed a can of grainfree food with her dry and she did eat a big meal Sunday afternoon. Then, Reddi warned me again with a bark at 2:30 am. Knowing it can be hard to wait until morning to go to the bathroom for my little pumpkin shaped mama, I got up and let her outside. When I let her back in I had my suspicions and felt her ear. She was mildly trembling which means, based on years of experience, that her temp was dropping. I knew then that the next 24 hours would be busy.

New Puppies born 10/26/2015!

I love the way Pink sprawls out over as many as possible but they all take turns doing that!

There are 9; I haven’t gone back through and verified the sexes a second time but I think there are 4 males/5 females all decisively delivered by Reddi with strong fast contractions between 9:40 am and 1:40 pm. Only 4 hours–I think it’s a new speed whelping record here. The weights are between 10.0 oz and just under 9, so all are close in size. They are strong and nursing efficiently. NICE, no complications and a healthy litter and mom–I’m so happy!

I was just “done in” by the end of Monday, because we were also open for business with Easdale: the best pet care. With the help of a great employee/helper, Shania, we checked out 9 dogs, hiked 9 trail walks, groomed a Great Pyrenees (5 hours- way to go Shania), an Airedale, and a thick coated Great Dane mix, took about 15 phone calls, and handled assorted misc tasks to keep everyone well cared for. After the last puppy, I had to do my part here at work by grooming the Airedale that Shania had bathed and dried, and bath/deshed the thick coated Great Dane mix who won’t let anyone do him other than me….and hence, the tired feeling!

I did catch a little sleep from 9 pm until 2 am, check the pups, 2:45 am check the pups, 5:00 am check the pups….well, I started Tuesday early, let’s just say!

Now allow me to introduce the daddy of the litter:


CH Darbywood’s Baraboo of Singing Hills, RN2544602, PennHip 65th percentile

“Bear” as they call him, lives in North Carolina but he’s staying here in Ohio to be shown….and show he does! Earlier this month, Bear won BOS at the national specialty weekend of the Airedale Terrier Club of America in Montgomery, PA with over 100 Airedales entered. I’m proud to have spotted the potential of this young dog back in August!

His sire is well known:


CH. Tierra De Churubusco y Chubasco

AKC RN17070404
OFA Hips Good (AT-4909G24M-VPI)
Penn Hip 80th Percentile

and Bear’s dam:


CH Darbywood’s Eye of the Storm

AKC RN17659801

Hips OFA Good (AT-4964G27F-NOPI)


Retirement for Fancy

Seneca Airedales

Fancy in her Best Dressed category!

We are preparing to retire Fancy, one of our champions who has just turned six years young on June 18, 2015. Fancy is very well mannered, affectionate and shows almost no aggression to other dogs (if one picks on her she does stand up for herself but she would never start anything and wants to be friends). She walks beautifully on a leash without pulling and just wants to be with people 24/7 if she can. She can also stay by herself for periods of time calmly without separation anxiety. Her price is $700 plus interview(s) to be sure that she will continue her good life.

Reason for letting go? I am a breeder of 10 generations of Airedales and as such, have chosen to keep her son, daughter, 2 granddaughters and a niece. I have learned over the years that 5 is about my limit for quality time and attention to each.

Fancy as a mom

She is not yet spayed. Her DHLLP vaccination is good for one year (10/20/2015) and her Rabies is good for three years (1/7/2018). Fancy is freshly groomed and welcomes visitors. Just call for a time to see her!

Everybody’s Invited for Halloween! Costumes optional….
