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….

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!

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

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!

New Puppies born 10/26/2015! Reservations suggested!

The puppies came MONDAY! I really expected them to arrive Tuesday or Wednesday and had my schedule cleared for them then. But Reddi did warn me first with skipping her breakfast on Sunday. As I wasn’t expecting them quite so soon, I mixed a can of grainfree food with her dry and she did eat a big meal Sunday afternoon. Then, Reddi warned me again with a bark at 2:30 am. Knowing it can be hard to wait until morning to go to the bathroom for my little pumpkin shaped mama, I got up and let her outside. When I let her back in I had my suspicions and felt her ear. She was mildly trembling which means, based on years of experience, that her temp was dropping. I knew then that the next 24 hours would be busy.

New Puppies born 10/26/2015!

I love the way Pink sprawls out over as many as possible but they all take turns doing that!

There are 9; I haven’t gone back through and verified the sexes a second time but I think there are 4 males/5 females all decisively delivered by Reddi with strong fast contractions between 9:40 am and 1:40 pm. Only 4 hours–I think it’s a new speed whelping record here. The weights are between 10.0 oz and just under 9, so all are close in size. They are strong and nursing efficiently. NICE, no complications and a healthy litter and mom–I’m so happy!

Seneca Airedales newborns

I was just “done in” by the end of Monday, because we were also open for business with Easdale: the best pet care. With the help of a great employee/helper, Shania, we checked out 9 dogs, hiked 9 trail walks, groomed a Great Pyrenees (5 hours- way to go Shania), an Airedale, and a thick coated Great Dane mix, took about 15 phone calls, and handled assorted misc tasks to keep everyone well cared for. After the last puppy, I had to do my part here at work by grooming the Airedale that Shania had bathed and dried, and bath/deshed the thick coated Great Dane mix who won’t let anyone do him other than me….and hence, the tired feeling!

I did catch a little sleep from 9 pm until 2 am, check the pups, 2:45 am check the pups, 5:00 am check the pups….well, I started Tuesday early, let’s just say!

Now allow me to introduce the daddy of the litter:

Baraboo

CH Darbywood’s Baraboo of Singing Hills, RN2544602, PennHip 65th percentile

“Bear” as they call him, lives in North Carolina but he’s staying here in Ohio to be shown….and show he does! Earlier this month, Bear won BOS at the national specialty weekend of the Airedale Terrier Club of America in Montgomery, PA with over 100 Airedales entered. I’m proud to have spotted the potential of this young dog back in August!

His sire is well known:

Retirement for Fancy

Seneca Airedales

Fancy in her Best Dressed category!

We are preparing to retire Fancy, one of our champions who has just turned six years young on June 18, 2015. Fancy is very well mannered, affectionate and shows almost no aggression to other dogs (if one picks on her she does stand up for herself but she would never start anything and wants to be friends). She walks beautifully on a leash without pulling and just wants to be with people 24/7 if she can. She can also stay by herself for periods of time calmly without separation anxiety. Her price is $700 plus interview(s) to be sure that she will continue her good life.

Reason for letting go? I am a breeder of 10 generations of Airedales and as such, have chosen to keep her son, daughter, 2 granddaughters and a niece. I have learned over the years that 5 is about my limit for quality time and attention to each.

Fancy as a mom

She is not yet spayed. Her DHLLP vaccination is good for one year (10/20/2015) and her Rabies is good for three years (1/7/2018). Fancy is freshly groomed and welcomes visitors. Just call for a time to see her!

Homeward Bound

Puppies heading home….now the house is so quiet.

 missing photos….

and then we have a sad tale.

This litter was fully reserved but one family had a reversal of fortunes– job layoff and grown children with a baby moving back into the house. We understand; it can happen. But that means that Orange’s people never came.

Her littermates are all gone now and she is hanging out with stuffed Airedales who are cuddly, but not much for conversation since they have a head full of stuffing.  If you know of someone who would like to “interview” Orange for a family companion position, just give us a call: 330-666-2004
