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….

Did we ever mention that puppies go through LOTS of newspaper? We are happy to accept donations of clean full size papers. Slick ad circulars should be sorted out and put in recycling.

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:

Introducing Allie!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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!

Please do call us if your New Year’s Resolution involves adding an Airedale Terrier to the family in 2016! Contact Nancy at 330-666-2004 or aireseneca@gmail.com

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!

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!

 

 

Three Weeks Old…Score! (Will Play For Food, That Is….!)

Our APU team, that’s Airedale Puppies United to everyone who has been watching their new season, have started in on REAL food! They highly approve of this new development, along with eyes and ears now in full use, as well as vocal cords! Yes, we hear yips, growls, and every little noise they can make as they learn to speak “dog.”

Seneca Airedales born Oct 26, 2015

The cuteness rating has gone through the roof this week! What could be cuter than two puppies that might weigh 2 pounds each tussling with each other? Play has been added the the previous favorites of eating and sleeping. Of course, they have a tendency to decide that Mom should visit them at about 2 am each night and sing a chorus of discontent until she does. You know, these guys are right next to the bedroom, so we know all their moves!

Week Three is also important as they have had the first mild preventative worming medication too. We like to set them up for a great first season!

Why is it so important to start food now at 21 days old? Well, consider this: Reddi weighs about 45 pounds and only needs about 3 cups of food per day to take care of her own needs. The puppies weigh about 2.5 pounds each and are rapidly gaining. So times the number of puppies gives us more than 20 pounds of puppies, almost half of Reddi’s body weight to support just through milk?!? That’s a lot of milk!  Reddi has been eating about 8 cups of densely nutritious foods every day plus drinking more than a gallon of water. The puppies demand just a little more each and every day then they did the day before. So–yes, we’re helping. Reddi sees them a lot and is very very happy to clean up any puppy food they miss! Then she cleans every puppy too!

Two Weeks Old….all members of the APU (Airedale Puppies United)

Well, doesn’t eight make a team in soccer? I could be wrong about the sports but they do EVERYTHING together.

Born October 26, 2015

Reddi, the mother is devoted and attentive to them and produces sufficient milk to keep them all happy so far. Very soon they will be so big that Reddi will need some help beyond the high quality Best Breed diet that I have been just about shoveling in to her to keep up with the physical demands that all this mothering requires.

Reservations suggested! Call Nancy at 330-666-2004

In just a few more days, their eyes will open on this big new world.

I think puppies are born optimists and it’s up to us not to disappoint them!

Yes, they are bigger now! We have already passed the critical conversion from colostrum to true milk. See here for more information about that. All they do is eat and sleep….and grow of course! Here are the latest photos:
