Keeping an eye out for pesky squirrels
My name is Oscar & I was 6 months old on November 26th 2006. I'm a pure breed Airedale Terrier & my Kennel Club name is Sherifs Sundance Kid. I was 1 of 8 brothers & as our breeder's registered name is Sherifs Airedales, they decided to name us all after cowboys, cool huh?
I went to live with some new owners at 8 weeks old, but they took me back to the breeder's aged 12 weeks as they said I was too much of a handful. I was sad that they didn't give me chance to settle in & show my true charm, but it was great to see my mum & breeders again.
Lucky for me, my new mum & dad came to my rescue & gave me a new home aged 14 weeks. I have been happy there ever since, learning lots & growing rapidly. When I arrived I weighed 9 kilos (19 pounds) & was a fuzzy little pup. I now weigh over 16 kilos (35 pounds) & look like much more of a grown up boy, especially since I got my first haircut last week.
I go to puppy class every week & I really love it. I have been going for 6 weeks & am about to receive my Bronze Award, so mum is very proud of me. I have a few friends there who don't mind playing with me - a lot of the dogs I see when out walking are far too mature to play with a lowly puppy like me.
As I said, I live with my mum & dad, and my sister Flakes, a very big, hairy black & white pussy cat. She's 15 years old & is a bit grumpy. Actually, amke that a lot grumpy. She likes to swipe my nose if I get too near her or her dinner, so I'm learning to steer clear of her (or just eat her food when she's not around!).
I love eating, playing fetch for ages, chewing my bones, stealing socks, eating some more, going for long walks, finding sticks & plastic bottles to carry home, getting filthy whilst digging or jumping in puddles, my pink squeaky bone & sleeping after all that fun.
Well, I hope you'll enjoy reading about all my adventures.
Lot of love & licks,
