The Puppies of Spring, 2018

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

BRUNO x VERITY

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.

EURO x MERCI

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:

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….

Hearty Thanksgiving!

We’ve completed a successful first week and like most of us, our guys are stuffed at the end of the day, but not with turkey!

Here are the latest photos:

Yea! The New Puppies Arrive!

You may remember that we introduced Allie, aka Seneca Up Your Alley, fourth generation OFA Excellent, a few months ago?

Seneca Airedales

Seneca Airedales introduces Allie!

Here’s a pic of Allie to jog your memory … and here’s a recap: 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/

Now we have the happy news that Allie has her first litter, eight fine puppies of 5 female and 3 male, delivered last night in the final hours of NovOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA 16th.  If you look carefully, you can see all eight colors of ribbons which serve as their name until they get better ones. Here’s the stats:

5:46 pm Blue male           9.25 oz

6:21 pm Pink female      13.00 oz

7:05 pm Gold female      10.75 oz

7:40 pm Yellow female 12.00 oz

8:05 pm Green male      11.25 oz

8:45 pm Scarlet female 10.75 oz

10:25 pm Purple male     10.00 oz

10:40 pm Orange female  9.75 oz

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI sleep in a room right next to the puppies and check them often during the night and throughout the day. All are strong and nursing vigorously; Allie is a wonderful mama dog. Here a final shot of the proud parent.

On my next postings, I will cover our new and improved whelping furnishings, the sire of these fine puppies and his family ties, as well as other notes and observations as these little ones grow bigger. Feel free to visit my earlier posts to see previews of development.

In closing, it’s too bad that these little ones just couldn’t be born fast enough for some folks. We had to return some deposits lately due to the time required to produce a puppy–you just can’t rush something like this. So, we do have a few more reservation openings available if you are looking for a best friend ever!

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!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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

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/
