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?
