Max’s Puppies Between 5 and 6 Weeks!

The father of our puppies born 11/16/2016 is Canadian CH Seneca Brave to the Max! Max excelled at loyal devotion and obedience, evidenced by his High in Trial at the National Specialty, Year of the Airedale 2003.

Max was born due to an unlikely series of events. While I was visiting in Germany in the late 1990’s, I was very impressed by a male Airedale. flashHis name was Champion D/KfT,
Deutscher Champion VDH, Champion INT. FLASH VON ARGONAUT VPG1, VPG2, VPG3, IPO3, AD, FH, Körklasse. 1A, Teilnahme KLSP 97 + 98. Flash represents a great line of European dogs; here’s where you can do some research….http://www.airedale-argonaut.de/erfolge.html

I was very interested in his talents and bloodlines but he wasn’t leaving Germany–and so decided to bring my very own CH Seneca Brave Chance (Jacki) to him. Jacki had recently finished her Championship owner handled with three majors by her breeder–and my son Tim. 1998_06timjacki_june1

After some months of planning, flying Jacki to Germany BEFORE she was in her heat cycle and waiting….and waiting….finally, Jacki was bred and sent back to me in the USA. With considerable AKC paperwork, we were able to produce and register a litter of Flash puppies in Ohio!2003_timsrphoto 2005-timandjacklasttime

Jacki has a special place in our family as my oldest son Tim took an interest in Junior Showmanship and Jacki was his best friend of all the Airedales we ever had. Tim even won a major towards her Championship under well known handler and AKC judge, Richard Cashoudian–we have a great show pic of that. I really need to look up more photos and scan them in. He took his senior high school photos with her. Shortly before she passed at the age of 13 he put his head together with hers to say good-bye.

Now we are playing with Jacki’s grandchildren, Max’s kids, and Allie’s babies–all in one package!

 

Making Breed History–Again!

 

Saturday, 4-23-16, at the Long Island Retriever Field Trial Club’s UKC HRC Retriever Hunt Test, Seneca Airedales enjoyed awesome SUCCESS!

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:

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

Retirement for Nicky

We are now looking for a retirement home for Nicky

OK, what’s retirement? When a dog is finished with their “career” multiple dog owners like myself will sometimes look for a place where an adult can kick back and be an only dog or maybe one of two dogs. I confess that I am a *slight* Airedale hoarder! We are home here to several Airedales and I think they get lots more attention by locating someone that wants just them.

American and Canadian CH Ikarus Vom Garnsee, German Import, Owner Handled Group winner

*Nicky*

How about some info on Nicky? Well, his stats are like this:

Born: June 12, 2008      Hips: OFA Certified

Registry: AKC      Sex: Male (to be neutered)

Health status: Excellent and up to date until May 2015, Weighs about 60-65 pounds

Reg. Name:  Ikarus von Garnsee (Call Name: NICKY) German Import

Sire: International CH No Doubt of Malton HD-F (hips certified), IPO III, Champion in 12 countries,

Dam: Klub U. KFT Jugend Sieger CH Espe Vom
Porta-berg HDF-A1

Personality: Very affectionate and outgoing.  Walks on lead without pulling and doesn’t jump up on people unless encouraged to do so. He loves to be a prancing show off when walked 😉

Enjoys good appetite (understatement-he has always wanted to be a fat dog but I keep him to a MEASURED amount of food) and eats neatly but when drinking, water drips from beard (it’s an Airedale thing). If you give him a big deep bucket of water, he sticks his whole head under water sometimes. He LOVES rubs behind the ear. Enjoys other dogs if they aren’t too rough in playing; doesn’t like other dominant dogs.

Trained to be crated while you are away and I would recommend that to be safe and to avoid miscommunication about when he needs to go out in a new environment. Copes happily  with loud noisy environment–rowdy parties, new loud people, construction/remodeling in the house, stuff like that.

Fall back retirement job: He might be a wonderful therapy dog as he is SO gentle.

Price: Like the commercial says, priceless…..to the right person who can love him like he deserves. Call and we can talk about it–330-666-2004

Happy News: Dora loves her

whole new family with two girls.

Dorett

*DORA*

How about some info on Dora? Well, her stats are like this:

Born: February 16, 2007      Hips: OFA Excellent

Registry: AKC      Sex: Female (to be spayed)

Health status: Excellent and up to date until May 2014

Reg. Name:  Dorrett v. Buckower Polsterhof (Call Name: DORA) German Import

Sire: VDH/KFT/L CH/CH Jgd KFT Othello von der Laubenhaid KFT 01/33657

Hip rated HDF-A1 obedience and performance titles: BH/VT, AD, FH II, VPG III, IPO I

Dam: Coco vom Buckower-Polsterhoff  HDF, BH

Personality: Very affectionate and even wants to trip you by staying too close–this could be annoying or endearing, depending on what you think of it! Favorite trick–rolls over on her back for belly rubs faster than you can say “Are you a good girl?” Walks gently on lead without pulling and doesn’t jump up on people unless encouraged to do so.

Enjoys good appetite and eats neatly but water drips from beard (it’s an Airedale thing). LOVES rubs behind the ear. Enjoys other dogs if they aren’t too rough in playing; doesn’t like other dominant females. Trained to be crated while you are away and I would recommend that to be safe to avoid miscommunication about when she needs to go out. Copes happily  with loud noisy environment–rowdy parties, new loud people, construction/remodeling in the house, stuff like that.

Fall back retirement job: She might be a wonderful therapy dog as she is SO gentle.

Where’s she been for the last year or so? My son, Tim, grew up with the Airedales, naturally. He bought a new house and wanted to work with an Airedale for the first time on his own. Now his work schedule has changed and he can’t be home enough to take care of her. So Mom is looking for a permanent place for our girl Dora–yes, he did the same thing with Ronnie before!

Price: Like the commercial says, priceless…..to the right person who can love her like she deserves.

Milo Checking In At One Year….

Milo the Airedale

We bought Milo from Nancy in January of 2012. He has always been a sweet and loving dog, but occasionally just wanted to be left alone. He is a great family dog who loves the children and knows what he can aMilond can’t do with them.

When Milo was nine months old he had an accident which required us to leave him at the pet hospital for three days. As a result, he has separation anxiety. This is a condition in which he experiences anxiety anytime we leave him alone, or in the crate. He associates the crate with the hospital cage, where he was in pain. Therefore, cage time has gotten to be difficult. We are currently working with a Canine Behaviorist who has been most helpful in the situation.

Aside from the separation anxiety, Milo is a dog like no other. He enjoys spending time with us, trying to steal the occasional loose sock, and of course taking a nice run even in the snow! I recommend Airedales to anyone who is willing to put effort into training, and glad to have an excitable four-legged family member.

Thanks, Nancy!

In memory of MACH Seneca Sedona Gala Affair

MACH Seneca Sedona Gala Affair, sired by CH SENECA SORRELL HILL BRAVADO CD, SAR & DD Detect Certified out of  SENECA KATIE DID IT

I’d like you all to see the spirit, character, and love that positively glowed from Gala. If you’re not familiar with the sport of agility, please know that the MACH (Master Agility Champion) title is earned by very few Airedales. Competing in Invitation tournaments is only possible for the top 10 in each breed, as you will see many of the video shots marked.

Lastly, at the very end, Gala was doing a practice at her advanced age with drastically simplified and lowered jumps so that she could feel young again, doing what she loved to do.

I thank Cheryl for sharing this with us.

Update on RED born 11/21/2011

If you go all the way back in this blog to November, 2011 you can see the early days of our puppies including little Red. Here’s an update:Red at One Year Old

It has been one year today we got red ribbon white foot.  We have enjoyed him so much.  He keeps us hopping.  Just thought you would like to see a picture of how handsome he has become.  He is the love of our life.  Would like to see pictures of any of his siblings if you have some.  You are welcome to share his picture with the families that have his siblings.  Hope, but know they are as beautiful as our Darby. ~ Mike & Barb, Howell, MI
