BIG day I mean HUGE! Our little man is finally okay (again) with riding in the car. We went out to our old neighborhood so he could meet Tawny & Mia. It was love at first nose poke. This photo of them all sitting still.....small miracle πŸ™‚ AND Duke was so gentle and adorable when meeting Cash. Of course it helped greatly that Cash is a gentle, calm gentleman too. Thank you Holly Bennett & Diane. This is just the beginning of shared walks.

My sweet boy Tanner used to watch only the Airedales, then go and lie down when they were showing other dogs!

Very cute. My Airedale recognized dogs, cats and even cartoon dogs. He was a big TV fan. Miss him so...

Hi everyone,

It's been awhile since I sent a Brandy update. Hope you are doing well. Things continue to be great here for all of us. Today we took the two dogs to our favorite groomer and boarding facility. I dropped them off at 9:30 this morning and they were able to play with all the other dogs until they got groomed. I picked them up at around 4:45 this afternoon and they were pretty well exhausted from the play and the grooming. They are totally wiped out from a wonderful day. Here they are on our bed ready for a good night's sleep.

We continue to feel so blessed to have Brandy here, and Bella sure seems to echo the sentiment. They are the very best buddies and play happily when they are not napping (as all happy dogs do for most of the day!) They both know that there is a very loving home here and we couldn't be happier!

Thanks again for bringing Brandy into our lives and we hope all goes well with you.

good thoughts being sent that way!!

Hello! When was the last sighting?

Last known sighting on June 8, 2018.

Hello, I have two trail cameras (with SIM cards) that I'd love to donate, if you can use them (I used them when I lost my dog several years ago and have no use for them now). I could 2-day mail them to you and they should arrive on Monday (I am not local). If you are interested, just send me a mailing address (can message me here on Facebook). Gosh, I hope you get that sweet pup back. The very best of luck to you all.

Sending positive Aire vibes that this baby will be found and be healthy!

Shared from California

So, scary. Hang in there. I had one lost for 2.5 hours and nearly lost my mind

I can’t believe Linus disappeared

Praying he is caught soon!

Hope he shows up soon.

Good luck!!!!!!!!

Prayers. I wish I could help but I am in another country.

Oh ... sure hope this big boy has been found... so HOT. Will say a prayer ... airedale family in E.TN.

Hope you find him

I once had one missing for 48 hours. Camping out at the point of escape was the winning solution. Keep going, it's worth it.

I don't want to sound odd here,,, but ck every pool ALL around your neighborhood. For some reason Airedales love to find folks pools. Good luck. God bless.

Update on Izzie D. She's gained 6 lbs (Izzie had a very high Valley Fever titer when she arrived in rescue and was very thin) and got her first grooming last Friday. She's making good progress with her training and is slowly getting herself together when she sees other dogs. Still a ways to go though. ... See MoreSee Less

Hey! I go there all the time when we’re there in the winter πŸ™‚

BB celebrating her one year anniversary since she was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer. In May, 2017, BB started slowing down and not wanting to eat. Nothing showed up in the blood work and her Mom insisted on a scan, which showed a large tumor on her spleen. Although BB was 9.5 years old, she was in extremely good shape -- hiking every day, swimming, playing fetch. They decided that because there was a 50% chance it would not be cancer, they would go ahead with the splenectomy. She had her spleen removed June 2nd and did great with the surgery, but the bad news was delivered on June 9, 2017, that the tumor was malignant. The vet predicted she might have three months. Her family continued the home diet she had been on, added CBD oil and determined they would give her the very best life possible for as long as she felt well. BB immediately felt better once her spleen was removed and has continued to do well for the past year. She has definitely slowed down, and the family will not let her suffer, but for now she is enjoying her hikes, swimming, playing ball, her loving family and special treats from her sister! ...

true love!!! we have two black 'dales who are the best things our lives. kisses to BB, please.

We have such a short time with them. I am so glad she is still having a great life.πŸ’–

Oh what a wonderful story! Now that I have learned about this aggressive cancer I will watch the signs with our next Dale and hopefully catch it as early as BB's parents did!

This hemp oil and switching her from dried food to raw chopped beef has helped greatly

I also adjusted the canna drops based on how she feels . She is around 57 pounds and I give her a half a dropper twice a day with approximately 3/4 pound of beef each meal . I always have a bowl of high nutritional dry food out as well which sometimes she will eat . The instructions on the bottle are for daily use age for things like light arthritis. You can call the company that makes this -it was developed by two vets who have Airedales.

I was making Max salmon. I roasted it in the oven on a sheet pan at 400 degrees with sage and turmeric sprinkled on top. Baked for about 22 minutes. He loved that. That and his usual homemade food was the only thing he would eat the last week. That's how we knew something was wrong. He used to eat anything. And he stopped eating kibble and treats.

Love my black dale too πŸ’•

lots of Airedale zen to Miss BB...Wishing her many many more days with her Aire-fam. They all leave us way too soon, but we love them with all of our hearts...❀️❀️❀️

She's so beautiful!! I'm glad things are going well since the splendectomy.

God bless her, she's beautiful ❀️

There is no speed limit..on the journey of life... So mommy and family are doing right one slow day at the time.. My boy an I took .. A whole 19 months before we got to his door... So have fun ..talk only good....eat well .... They are in my prays.....

So true but they don't look like Airedales!

I have had two of the most different temperment dogs imaginable: a cuddly henchwoman of a chow, with little to no play drive who listened immediately and my beloved airedale. Someone taught me that to get a terrier(or any hunting dog) to follow you, get their attention, then run away. They can't help but chase you. Worked everytime.

OMG> So true. I hate when I have to use my Saint's voice. But it works. They pretend. Really.

This is Matty getting settled down for her morning nap. Those windows face west so she takes her afternoon and evening naps on the other bed.

She's been doing fine. She must have pinched a nerve or something at some point in her life, because several months ago she was laying down and just screaming. Off to see Dr. Obrein, exam, xrays. Nada. She came home with pain meds with follow-up scheduled. 2 days later, all good. She's had 2 more episodes since, but a bout of pain meds and she's back to normal. She also had developed something that would be akin to tennis elbow in a human. Patty has checked it, aspirated it, and said as long as it's not causing her problems, don't fuss. When she went in for her shots last week, Patty examined it again, and still all goods. There is a medical term for it - hydra some damn thing or another but as long as she's okay, I'm okay.

As she is a lady of a certain age, she continues to find short cuts to save energy. The latest is: Matty is having a nap, the phone rings, and now instead of getting up to howl right at it, she's lifts her head a couple inches and howls.

She is still full of energy when she plays with Logan and runs out the door with him when they hear a leaf drop. I love watching them together and it tickles me to see their different approaches. When the human is eating, Logan sits and watches with that look that says "you better be saving me something" and Matty does the head-cock thing, leans a little forward and does everything but shed a tear.

Hope you guys are braced for the upcoming heat. Sept. is only 3 months away!

Logan says "hi" and don't forget about him. He's my best boy even when he's living up to his his nick-name - Lo Lo Loco.

First morning update from Maria and Nigel: I managed to get Dermaxx and tramadol into her last night and she slept, as we did! She took her usual treat from Nigel this morning . I gave her half her kibble and water which she ate quickly. Next will be her meds in cream cheese. Letting her rest until we put T-shirt on and get her up to go for potty break. Eating and drinking are good signs!
***Bella's surgery went great. She is on her way home. She even walked a few steps on the way out (with a towel for support)
***Please keep Bella in your thoughts and prayers .. going in for surgery Friday June 1 2018.
