The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

The changing faces of Oscar

Hey peeps,

We made a bit of a muddle of posting the photos in the last post, so thought we'd have another go!

Here's some pictures of my life so far.

Here I am with my 7 brothers on the day we were born. Poor mum looks like she could do with some sleep, but I don't suppose we gave her too much peace & quiet! We don't look at all like Airedales, more like little black rats!

That's me on the left with some of my brothers aged 1 month. We look really roly poly. And quite grumpy too actually. Maybe we were waiting for food. I love my food a lot! I'm sure we were doing lots of play fighting in between sleeping & eating.

Here are me & my brothers taking in the sights & smells of the great outdoors aged 6 weeks. As you can see we're already growing fast. I think judging by the fact we're all looking so well behaved we must have been waiting for our dinner. I'm sure we were soon back to mischief making!

This is me aged 4 months, just ater arriving at my new home. I had already been to one mum & dad at 8 weeks, but they thought I was too much of a handful, so they took me back to the breeders. Better than abandoning me I suppose, and I got to see my doggie mum & half brother again! After 2 weeks my new mum & dad came to collect me. They were going to get an 8 week old Airedale puppy, but heard about me, came to meet me, & fell in love. Well, who could resist? I look tiny in this photo now, as I have grown so much since I arrived at my new home. I think I weighed about 9 kilos here.

This is me at 5 months. As you can see, I'm growing rapidly. Mum thought I was getting a bit chubby, but as you can see from my hair cut picture below, it was all just fur! I know I look a bit peeved, but I was so sick of posing for photos! My puppy crate is in the background. I don't really need it anymore as I'm a well housetrained boy who has pretty much finished teething, but I still like to chill out in there.

This is me on my 6th month birthday this past weekend. I now weigh 16 kilos. I'd just been to be groomed for the first time. The lady there told mum & dad I'd been a really good boy, but I'd been so tired after all the bathing, trimming, drying & pampering that I'd had to have a power nap with some of the other pooches whilst waiting for mum & dad to come back & get me. I think I look rather handsome, even if I do say so myself. I have puppy class tonight so hopefully the ladies will be impressed with the all new sophisticated Mr Oscar.

Hope you enjoyed looking at me!
I'll let you know how I get on at puppy class this evening in tomorrow's posting. Hopefully I might get my bronze certificate tonight!

hi Katy & Martin
I thought it was time I went right back to the beginning with Oscar. Even if he is no longer with us, I still want to get to know him. I hope you don't mind - I can imagine it is hard to feel pleasure from memories when you are still grieving his loss.

Crazy that his first owners gave up so quickly and sent him back to his breeder. I'm thankful my mum and dad have found the patience to endure my terrible tot phase. They were just relaxing and now I have started teething, so I keep them on their toes. Ha! That's what airedales are for!

big hugs
