Getting bigger–Reddi is a devoted mom and very patient. I have to put a leash on her the first few days to come outside with me for potty breaks!

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!

 

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!

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?
