Some 10 plus years ago I was introduced to Airedales, I met Luke & Zoe.
I have had children (5 of them), I have had grand children
(last count 17 of them)
and I have had birds, cats, dog, turtles, lizards, worms, mice,
I have even had snakes however, I was
new to Airedales!
I climbed into the car (Jeep) at the airport, Luke and Zoe
were in the back (no back seat) more room for the dogs.
I smiled said hi and slowly put my hand into the back area palm
they could not hear me because they were too busy barking!
Luke first and they Zoe took their turn placing my hand between
the jaw and used just enough
Pressure to hurt but not break skin, then walked off to get
comfortable for the rest of the ride.
Do you want to play catch with an Airedale?
Only if you need your exercise!
Airedales play catch by sitting and watching you throw
and then fetch the stick, an Airedale gets exercise by
walking away head held high while looking back at you in disgust!
You threw it if you want it go get it!
I can see why the allied and the Germans used Airedales
to carry notes from foxhole to foxhole during WW-2,
Airedales can think on their feet,
they will take down a grizzly bear, nothing bothers them except,
if an insect fly’s somewhere in the house
or car they go nuts or hide under something.
However, just about the time that you are ready
to throw up your hands and say
“What is the
Airedales will come up to you and teach you what true love is!
