Toasts and Champagne for 2020!

Forget running marathons or learning Mandarin. 2020 is the year to let your new Airedale puppy make your New Year’s resolutions for you. After all, *these* puppies’ lifelong ambition is to be your truest, most loyal friend and companion. These little guys and gals will have you both feeling great, and the best part is, it’s all scientifically proven that you live longer and healthier with a dog! You can do puppy classes and meet new people, you can train for a dog sport and be more active, you can even take on an entire area of learning and exercise your brain! Puppies are a serious commitment–but that doesn’t mean they can’t be quite a lot of FUN!

Our previous post announced their arrival and gave the outstanding family background here: https://smartairedales.wordpress.com/2019/09/28/2019-fall-puppies/ Since October 5th, they have been quite busy in the business of growing, playing, learning, and showing some real personality. Now they are all dressed up for glamour and celebration. Our post here is to put all that progress on display for you!

There are SIX boys, all named here for famous brands of champagne:

undefined Laurent-Perrier (04) affectionate, calmer fellow too mellow to engage in rowdy play–at least this week! Strong social drive and he loves new toys.

undefined Pommery (05) is an active tussler with social drive and loves playing king of the castle with cardboard boxes as soon as they is set down!

undefined Piper-Heidsieck (06) doesn’t put himself forward in the group but he really begins to impress–the longer that you watch him. He’s very observant of new things and curious!

Lanson (08) affectionate and active, also very observant of new things and change and just a little cautious until he has had a minute to check it out.

Update: Living in Dyer, IN

undefined Taittinger (03) “Tatters” Very confident boy and an active adventurer with independence. He adapts quickly to new conditions and appears to be ready for anything!

Nicholas (09) active and boisterous, always in the middle of a tussle and up for what ever you want to do

Meanwhile our FIVE girls are each representing toasts for the New Year:

Prosperity (01) Active and a bit of a tomboy but she knows how to wait for the right moment!

Hope (07) Perhaps calmer than the average puppy who doesn’t put herself forward in the group. While you are watching her, she is watching you with a cute little turn to her head!

Fortune (02) cutest and most affectionate; maybe we’re guilty of doing a little extra cuddling with her!

Update: Living in Fulton, MO

Health (10) active and well balanced, has an eye to what lies ahead…her very own family!

Update: Living in Nashville, TN

Love (11) confident and self assured–fair warning, she has become quite good at getting her way!

Update: Living in Springfield, IL

This exceptional litter begins with an outstanding background, the right care from birth, and now are interviewing for families each based on a compatible match of lifestyles and personality. Come meet them and look one in the eye….you won’t be able to resist!

We plan to do our aptitude evaluation on December 2nd with Linda Sorak, owner and trainer of the father of this litter, German Import UUD, UAG ll, URO2 Dollar von Erikson PCD, CD, TD, VCD1, NJP, NAP, OFP, JH, SHF, JHR, BH, AD, IPO2, RATO, RL2 . Titles in front of the name are from the United Kennel Club (UKC) and titles after the name are American Kennel Club and DVG Schutzhund Clubs in the USA.

At this early stage, a deposit is like a reservation at a restaurant–we guarantee you a table, but we’re not sure which one just yet. 😉

A Rose is a Rose….now living in New York City!

Little Rose was born in a big litter of twelve puppies on October 30th, 2018, and she is still looking for just the right family. She wasn’t the biggest and she wasn’t the smallest. Rose was just right! Now she is bigger and learning so many new things that are very important to a puppy–walking on a leash, being quiet and very good at night, and eating up her very good puppy diet to continue growing into a most outstanding little Airedale!

Sometimes, Rose likes to play with her Uncle Bosun, a very big 85 pound Chocolate Labrador Retriever. Don’t worry–he lays down and lets Rosie climb all over him! Sometimes, Rosie likes to dress up as you can see in the picture and go for a walk. Her favorite place is the local pet store where they have more treats and more toys than she has *ever* seen in one place before!

If you are thinking of adopting a new canine into your family, give us a call and we can schedule a visit with Rose herself!

Seneca Airedales are located at 1814 North Revere Rd, Akron, OH 44333. For more information, please direct your inquiries to our email: aireseneca@gmail.com or by phone: 330-666-2004 We have also listed this litter on our Breeder of Merit page on AKC Marketplace.

Winter 2018-19 Litter Class Photos! ….and availability update….

We took a bath and got all cleaned up with new ribbons to be introduced to you. Now at just a couple days short of being six weeks old we will soon be sending out a “getting ready” email of tips for everyone waiting for these little lady killers and heart breakers. 

Congratulations! (female)

First the girls….

Congratulations, or Congrats as we call her, has really grown.  She is named for the ribbon she wears, happily!

Born as the smallest puppy in the litter, she grew up fighting and has gained weight and look fabulous! She’s sassy, she’s plucky, and she takes nothing from nobody in this big litter of twelve!

UPDATE: Now living in WV

Rose  (female)

A rose is a rose by any other name, so our little Rose is sweet. She was also not the biggest puppy born but has taken to the puppy food with gusto and has never looked back! Rose is gentle, sweet, and has just enough terrier feisty so that she can hold her own with the boys.

UPDATE: Now living in NY

Sunshine (female)

Sunshine, our yellow ribbon puppy, likes to play–then sleep–then eat and play again. She’s really not hard to please if you help her to do those three activities! We could all use a little sunshine in these gloomy winter days in Ohio.

UPDATE: Now living in OH


Now for the boys, all nine, who are the handsome heart breakers of the bunch. Watch out or you might fall in love!

Teal  (male)

Teal, wears the ribbon with pride. He’s now ready to start celebrating the New Year with you! Teal is an outgoing adventurer and is always ready to check out the newest toys and try them out. Next, he’ll be exploring anything you leave lying on the floor in your house, too!

UPDATE: AVAILABLE with PAT scores indicating natural aptitudes in retrieving, social skills, and excellent obedience potential!

Seafoam  (male)

Seafoam makes me think of beaches and he’s sitting in front of a Jesse Wilcox Smith print.  A steady sort of fellow, Seafoam is a great companion, ready for his grown up name with you!

UPDATE: Now living in TN

Red  (male)

Red is a bit of a traditional Airedale puppy. He’s been practicing using his vintage carrier to be ready to travel in a few weeks. He likes his red blanket and we had to coax him out to take his photo!

UPDATE: Now living in AL

Purple  (male)

Purple, yes, that’s a purple ribbon in there, next to the teal feather he has decided to taste. Our Mardi Gras boy could grow up to be a field dog getting birds, or he just might be a provocative tease with his beads and feathers!

UPDATE: Now living in IN

Green  (male)

Green is a lucky boy. He’s a little quieter and more self amusing. He’s sweet and perhaps not as busy as some of his littermates. Can anyone use a little more luck?

UPDATE: Now living in OH

Gold  (male)

Gold is a big sturdy fellow with something more precious than real gold; he’s got time…years and years of time to be someone’s best friend ever. We can’t say for sure but he may grow to be larger than average.

UPDATE: Now living in NC

Chocolate  (male)

Chocolate wears a brown ribbon. The grandfather of all these twelve is an international German Champion. Their father was conceived there and then born in the USA. He’s the sweetest guy you could ask for…everyone’s most favorite treat, pure, high quality, rich, memorable chocolate!

UPDATE: Now living in OH

Blue  (male)

Blue is a tortured artist–NOT! He’s a bit more of a paw painter from the Jackson Pollock school of artists. Bright colors attract on the new toys but he’s really not as busy as you might think. Creativity takes a lot out of you so Blue naps a lot!

UPDATE: Now living in OH

Orange  (male)

Orange is a big fan of the Cleveland Browns! Yeah, the record may be a bit spotty but the jacket sure looks good on him. I hope you have some balls to play with at your house–especially a football or two!

UPDATE: Now living in PA

We plan to do our aptitude evaluation on either December 19th or 22-23. 
At this early stage, a deposit is like a reservation at a restaurant–we guarantee you a table, but we’re not sure which one just yet. 😉

Due to some unpleasant people in the past, please prepare to bring cash on the day of pick up. At the time that you pick up your puppy, we ask for cash unless you have prepaid with enough time (about 2 weeks) to verify your personal check. We’re sorry that we are so old-fashioned that we prefer not to do digital money transfers.

Our winter puppies will be old enough to travel after Christmas but we don’t rush them out the door. They can be placed up until January 20th. Then there will be a 2 week break while I am on vacation. Don’t worry; I take responsibility for my puppies very seriously and if any have not been spoken for at that point, we will resume interviewing families after my return in February.

Winter 2018-19 Litter Update

Here we are at the fun stage of weeks 4 and 5 (week 3 is reprinted for comparison); now in addition to eating and sleeping, we have some playtime to add. The team has graduated from the litter nursery box to a grand enclosure fully newspapered and furnished.

Now we have to use two pans to provide everyone a place at the table!

So what comes next? Later today, we will be bathing all twelve AGAIN–they seem to think that food works by osmosis through the skin instead of orally….<geesh!> Then we will be taking individual photos to show the gleam in their eye. We are sure that you are tired of looking at puppies eating! But here it is again anyway as they enjoy their double dish all you can eat buffet!

6weeksVerity10302018

So, the recap to our litter born from “Harry” aka Am & Can Ch Terrydale HK Traymar’s National Affair and from “Verity” aka Seneca Ariana Verity, born on October 30th. Their eighth week falls on Christmas time, so consider your holiday plans and think about the arrival of a new family member after the holidays!

Winter 2018-19 Litter Announcement

A Dozen! We are blessed with boys as we welcomed 9 boys-3 girls for the full night long on October 29-30th. I pretty much went without sleep for over two days as I helped in their safe arrival and started monitoring weight.

 

In the order of arrival on October 29th:        Followed by the weight Nov 2, 4 days later:

10:00 pm      BLUE            male         8.6 oz            8.7 oz

11:38             GREEN         male         9.1                10.5

Now, October 30th:

12:48 am       TEAL            male         9.3                 8.9

2:00               ORANGE     male         9.0                 9.5

2:20               PINK            female      7.1                 6.9

2:45              RED               male         8.1                 8.7

4:28              YELLOW      female      8.3               10.1

4:50              PURPLE       male           8.3                8.5

5:55              SEAFOAM   male           8.6                9.6

6:38              GOLD           male           9.3              12.0

7:50              CONGRATS female         6.5               7.2

11:18              CHOC          male            8.1               7.6

As you can see from the weights in RED that some of the puppies actually weighed less than their birth weight after 4 days and other had only gained very little–more drastic measures were called for.

 

I had already been getting up round the clock every two hours to make sure that all were getting a fair share of the available spaces to nurse; we had divided the litter into the “Cool Kids” who were larger, sleek, and always seemed to get what they wanted, and the “Breakfast Club” who were smaller misfits who needed a little extra attention and were ready to fight to succeed. While one group nursed with Mom, the second group would rest in a well appointed box and were given bottle-fed formula, then switch about. I enlisted every person I could to help me keep them fed–and I thank everyone whole heartedly! Weight gains improved markedly. Now we are happy to see them trying out their first baby foods today, as they prepare to turn three weeks old on November 20th.

Terrier Trio–chapter 2

The Terrier Trio is fat and sassy! With just three to raise up, Vega is having a great time with them now that they are showing personality and real character. With long ribbons dangling, PINK peers out, perhaps planning to ambush one of her littermates. With one paw raised, GREEN is picture perfect but I’m sure, planning her next bit of deviltry….Guarding his fort in a well defended position, BLUE BOY is contemplating his next move.

 

Actually, more of our photos looked like this….and this….as we tried to get them to hold still long enough to take a sweet photo. They are much more in motion as you can see! On the left, pink and blue, and on the right, blue and green.

 

After all, it’s much, much more fun to play with the leaves than take a photo!

DSCF8132green

As a recap, the Terrier Trio are now 5 weeks old and can travel to their new homes the weekend of Thanksgiving or thereafter at 8 weeks. They were born September 26th to Canadian CH Seneca Brave to the Max CD “Max”  and Vega. The dad is Max–click his name to see his introduction. His sire is Champion D/KfT, Deutscher Champion VDH, Champion INT.FLASH VON ARGONAUT VPG1, VPG2, VPG3, IPO3, AD, FH, Körklasse. 1A, Teilnahme KLSP 97 + 98. The mother, Seneca Vega Harp Star, was born to her parents CH Darbywood’s Baraboo of Singing Hills and Seneca Ready to Appeal, which you can see here: Vega1 ,  Vega2  ,  Vega3.   Vega was the Pink puppy- yes, we do need to get some grown up photos of Vega. Remember we are celebrating our 12th generation of Seneca Airedales so you can follow the entire line!

Trio of Terriers

Good news!

Puppies were born September 26th to Canadian CH Seneca Brave to the Max CD “Max”  and Vega. The dad is Max–click his name to see his introduction. His sire is Champion D/KfT, Deutscher Champion VDH, Champion INT.FLASH VON ARGONAUT VPG1, VPG2, VPG3, IPO3, AD, FH, Körklasse. 1A, Teilnahme KLSP 97 + 98.

Remember we are celebrating our 12th generation of Seneca Airedales so you can follow the entire line!

Tuesday night, September 25th, I recognized the 1000 Yard Stare that a mother-to-be develops when there are some internal changes going on….I watched closely but was able to get some sleep and, very considerately, Vega didn’t start to get serious until about 10 am on September 26th. As she curled up, I knew the final stages of labor were about to produce a puppy and just 15 minutes later….

11:08 am  female with ribbon color PINK

11:35 am  male with ribbon color BLUE

12:32 pm female with ribbon color GREEN

All born strong and healthy with Vega for her first time litter proving to be very motherly and caring of her puppies. We had done an ultrasound indicating 2 puppies, so to find we had 3 was both welcome and a surprise!
