The life and times of an English Airedale Terrier puppy

Introducing Oscar the Airedale

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,

Oscar x

Hey Sunshade,

Glad you like my blog. Think my mum needs to work on it a bit as the pictures are a little crazy & all over the place! Humans, tsk!

I will be sure to check out Maggie's blog, and also sign up to dogs with blogs, thanks for the heads up.

Don't let Bogart hear you saying I'm cute, he'll come over to England & bite me! I know you're his special gal!

The Sundance Kid is because we were all boys in the litter & my breeder's are Sherifs Airedales, so guess they thought they'd stick with the cowboy names, yee ha!

Talk to you soon pretty lady.

Bogart said...

Yup Sunshade is my dreamgirl, but I'm not the jealous type... I like it when other handsome boys admire her!

And you're a VERY handsome boy.

I think if any human tells you you're "too much of a handful" then you're doing things EXACTLY right. You're being a true Airedale!!!

Keep up the good work!


Sunshade said...

No worries Oscar, Bogie is right, we have a healthy relationship hehe. We don't get jealous (unless it's in real life....).

I asked you about the Sundance Kid part because there is a dog named Blackheath's Sundance Kidd at Buxton. I thought maybe you are out of him because of your name. He is my cousin and he went to Crufts and got limited dog.

That is so cute your entire litter were boys! My breeder had a litter a while ago that were 8 girls, can you believe it?? What are the odds of that??

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
